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.

    The trigger guard on my BT99 distroes my finger I was told I can buy a rubber bumper to put on the guard. If any one can tell me where to find one or has one for sale. Thank you for your time. Bill

    Maybe you could just put a little piece of firm, pressure sensitive adhesive-backed foam rubber on it. Or coil some black yarn around it as a cushion.

    Just a thought.

    Just a suggestion. If you're getting bumped by the trigger guard you might be holding too close to it and it has a chance to bite your bird finger at recoil. If you put one of those bumpers on it will force you to move your hand rearward away from the metal of the trigger guard anyway, so you may just try that before buying one. I tried one many years ago and the rubber beat the heck out of my finger about the same as the trigger guard.

    Zard's right. All of my P triggers are "set backs" because I have small hands and experienced the same as you. I used to have an over/under with two triggers. When I shot the front trigger the guard would cut my middle finger. When I used the bumper it made it harder to even reach the front trigger and then the bumper would keep my middle finger bruised for the rest of the hunting season.

    I hope the bumper works for you though. Good luck.

    I am having a similar problem with my PFS. I think my hand slips on the slick plastic grip, even wearing gloves. I'm ready to try pine tar! Does a better grip surface make sense? Ron

    I've put the rubber bumpers on both my BT-99's. That cured my beat up middle finger problem. I have normal size hands and fingers and shoot very heavy loads. End or problem for me.
