1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    For sale are 2 really neat clay target throwers. These are quite small in size.
    Appears to throw single bird only. They had a mfg's name paper sticker on them, but have missing for years.
    Mounting the base on a platform, you would place a bird on the throwing arm.
    Cranking the handle, it rotates the arm and cocks the spring. A lever on the right side fires the target! Pretty cool actually. Both in approx. same condition. Mechanically fine. Would make a nice addition to that "great room". Sold only as a pair. $250. plus actual shipping.
    Thanks.

    map your traps are for throwing miniature clay targets. MO-SKEET-O or Targo. The guns to shoot them would be smooth bore 22 rifles using shot. Your trap was probably made by Rutledge. Fred Rutledge was the person that started MO-SKEET-O and made a few variations of traps.

    I shot MO-SKEET-O at a boy scout camp back in 1959. Since then I have collected enough traps,guns,targets and ammo to put a gallery together. That will be my next project.

    Used to shoot Moskeetos at carnivals and fairs. We shot those smooth bore pump 22's, both Rems and Wins. They put up a very heavy tarp for a background and the shot couldn't go through it. Fun but tough.

    I wonder if that's what our current outdoor game will morph into in 50 years? Think Briley can make tubes for 22's?
