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.

    A book comprised of old trapshooting stories that my dad, Dick Baldwin wrote in 2005. He was employed at Remington Arms Co. for 27 years and his father was also a retired Remington man. His career in trapshooting spanned over 57 years. He wrote for many publications including, Trap & Field and The American Hunter.He was also co-author for the book & DVD "Trapshooting with D. Lee Braun and the Remington Pros" which is still popular today( he is the man to the right on the cover.)Until his untimely death in 2006 he was the Museum Director for the Trapshooting Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the Trapshooting Hall of Fame in 2009. This book is one you will certainly enjoy with its colorful stories and many vintage photos. It would be a welcome addition to anyone's trapshooting collection... also a great gift idea for that fellow trapshooter who has everything!! $40.00 per book/ free shipping. Please contact Sara Baldwin Palmer at (203)300-7779 or email sara@luksrealty.com

    Sara,I purchased the book and enjoyed it many times over. I found a old time shooting picture at a yard sale, photo copied it and mailed it to you dad for idenfication of the shooter.

    Your dad called me on a Sunday afternoon and we spoke about the picture and then he encourged me too mail my book back to him for his signature,that was only a week or two before I heard the sad news.

    What I remember the most was your dad being very soft spoken and kind.
    Regards,
    Jim Zimak

    Probably the best book ever done on traphooting. Dick, being the premier historian of our sport, knew how to tell a tale to make it interesting. Anyone who enjoys this sport will enjoy this book. Sara, good luck and hope all is well with you. Jeff Philipbar

    Every year Jack Gracey and I went to the Ohio state shoot or the Grand we would spend time with your dad. He was a true gentleman and I really enjoyed our conversations. Unfortunately Jack died of cancer at age 50 and I miss them both.

    I received a copy of this book from Sara last week. I am 1/2 way through it and it is indeed great. Best $30 I have ever spent on a Trap Shooting book.If you are a fan of our sport and enjoyed the Grand and Vandalia you will love it.

    Buy the book, you wont be sorry. I have read my copy cover to cover multiple times and enjoy it just as much each and every time. Great stories and pictures. I purchased my signed copy directly from Mr. Baldwin at the PA State shoot.
