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.

    wanting to buy: a good hull pickup device, need a location(web sight) do you have any advice or experience with said device. tired of bending over to clean up hull shooters think they have to right to throw on ground, it would make the overhead cost cheaper and keep grounds cleaner and safer, we have some wheel chair shooters, who would really appreciate not having to try run over hull, after all hulls are litter ! thanks

    Since primers are magnetic along with many economy shells having steel bases a stick with a good strong magnet works quite well. Inexpensive ones are available ready made at Harbor Freight.

    We use plastic hay rakes/scoops. Pick up lots of hulls fast - one scoop load will hold 100+ hulls. Not something to get stressed about. We get them at the local farm supply along with 15 gallon tubs to toss the hulls in. An ordinary plastic tine leaf rake will work also but they don't scoop quite as well. The range looks manicured when you are done, takes about ten minutes to clean up a field after a busy day.

    The magnet bars on wheels work but then you need to scrap the hulls off the magnet - kind of tedious.

    These work well. The only problem is finding someone to use it. Mashy linky.

    We also put signs out to pick up your empties, and so far it seems to help.

    I picked up a Pecan picker a couple of years ago while at a hardware store in Arkansas, works great for picking up hulls at the club and pine cones in my yard. Mine is made from wire which spreads to allow the hull to squeeze between them into the hopper as you push the thing down on each hull. Hopper holds about 10 hulls, cost less than $15 bucks as I remember. Type pecan picker in search see what comes up.

    I personally have a baganut picker upper that was originally designed to pick up pecans but works great with hulls and they make one for golf balls. They are close to $500.00 new or they make a pecan picker upper that is larger than the one suggested above for $38.00 and it works pretty good. Jackie B.
