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.

    Buy a Browning BPS Trap model. It has a 30" barrel with interchangeable chokes, bottom ejection with easy loading, and a Monte Carlo stock. When you do your job of pointing correctly, these guns vaporize clays! There is one for sale on Trapshooters.com right now! Simply can't beat these guns for the price!

    i have tried a BPS before and did not like the way of how you have to load it on the line when shooting but they are still a good gun

    Kyle, a true left hand will be difficult to find. I'd suggest you try and find a neutral gun with adjustable comb and possibly an adjustable buttplate.

    For singles/caps any of the single barrel browning trap guns would serve you well, and are usually very available in your price range.

    Otherwise, I'd find a nice Beretta 391...

    Your first mistake was using "cheap" and trap gun in the same sentence. *smiles* Good luck in your search............

    Buy a clean, quality break action single or double gun. Other than the release lever, the gun should be ambidextrious (sic?!). Add an adjustable comb or cast the gun to your specs and voila! you have a true lefty...

    My $0.02,

    Didn't see your earlier post about the BrowningGuy BT99, but that would be the kind of gun I would be thinking about... excellent value in a production gun. I own two (Pigeon and a Nickel/Laminate) and like to shoot them on occasion - the Nickel/Laminate is my "guest" gun for friends and acquaintances... or adverse weather.

    In a double gun... that Winchester 101 (while too short) is another example of a break action - the Browning Citori is another family of guns worth your consideration having a limited budget, but looking for value...

    Continued good luck in your search. While not wishing ill on anyone, keep your ears open for those who need to part with a clean firearm for financial reasons... you might help someone out, while helping yourself...

    Another option,I have an original 1971 model 12 trap metal 98 % , upgraded wood, monte carlo 30 inch barrel off to the stock fitters since its been in the closet due to 3/16 cast on, getting refigured to nuetral ,if its not ready in 2 weeks,I will pull it.

    850.00 plus shipping ,I think the BT 99 is the correct purchase, many good ones on this site.

    Good luck

    If your new, be careful you find a gun that is currently repairable....that has easily available parts....
