    Recently I have been having difficulty even getting to the Trapshooters.Com web. Ten days ago all I had to type in was Trapshooters.Com and it went directly to the site I've been using for several years. Now, typing in the same thing and pushing the search button takes me to everything but the Trapshooters.com threads. What am I doing wrong? Something stupid? Thanks ahead of time. Stu

    If you type "trapshooters.com" in the URL window of your browser, it should take you to the website. If you are typing the name into the search window using Google, Yahoo, Bing etc., you'll get whatever that search engine feels like giving you. I just typed "trapshooters.com" into my Google search engine and got a lot of sites to choose from, but NOT Trapshooters.com, unless I page down quite a bit.

    That all said, type the name of the website into the URL box and NOT the search box. You should get the site you want.

    I just typed it in Google and it was the very first item shown. Maybe Google likes me better than it likes you guys.

    That's curious. On my Macbook Air, using Firefox, Google returns the ATA website and a bunch of other trap related sites, but not TS.com. Yahoo and Bing both give the TS.com site as the first listing.

    Curious.

    grntitan is right - save it to Favorites or Bookmark it.

    Same problem using AOL browser, there is a "trapshooter.com" merchandise site. I use Bing browser and get it right away. Not sure why, could be that old anti gun BS. When I traveled a lot of motels would not allow me in on the house computer.

    Same thing happens to me, but if I add the word "forum" to the Google search it takes me right to Trapshooters.com. Jerry

    Same here....takes a bit of scrolling to get to it. Haven't tried it on my smartphone. I'm not smart enough to get past using it just as a phone...
