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.
  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Sold!! For sale is a 1954 Model 12 Heavy Duck. 3" magnum. 30" barrel, Vent rib by Simmons. Upgraded, uncheckered wood. Monte Carlo. Serial number series is 155xxxx. White line butt pad. DAC is 1 3/8". 13 5/8" LOP which is absolutely the correct length of pull from the factory for this duck gun. It took into consideration the layers of clothing needed in a duck blind. The bore is perfect and is .730. the choke constriction is .035(full and marked that way on the barrel. The barrel markings indicate the Winchester shells of that era. Bluing wear is non-existant in visible areas. It may have been re-blued. The wood is really nicely figured and has normal handling marks. Asking shipped or best reasonable offer. Contact Jim Veta. 310-291-1784

    Nice gun Jim. Problem with these old duck guns, it is not a good idea to shoot the required steel through the full chokes. You could open the chokes up, but I am not sure that the barrel walls would hold up with steel shot. Nice classic though. Jon

    That would be true. You wouldn't want to shoot steel shot through this full choke. That is is why there are so many companies now that make Non-toxic loads. There are a lot of shooters out there shooting their old side by sides and old pump guns again because now they can. This is a gun to be enjoyed shooting ducks or upland game. Lead is still ok in most parts of the country to shoot upland game. Steel shot requirements for waterfowl should not deter someone from buying an old classic Model 12.

    It looks like someone put an old duck gun to use by turing it into a trap gun. Rib, aftermarket wood and all. Pretty gun.
