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.

    If it is the old beavertailed, straight stock model it will be a "D", then the two digit year of manufacture.

    That would be the famed argument causing, "High Shooter". 1979, so it is not the highest shooter, but it is still considered "High" shooting. The highest shooters from what I heard, you had to pull the trigger while the bead was still on the trap house to hit the bird at its apex! They had to re-route airplanes around the trap fields when the "High Shooting" BT's came out. I was afraid to shoot the gun, because it looked like I was going to shoot myself in the toe. Just kidding. They seem to be getting higher shooting as they age though. Kind of like a fish story. You know how the fish gets bigger each time the story is brought up. Jon
