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.

    This is OLD. From my research, it looks to be mid to late 19th century. I'm offering it for sale on behalf of a friend - a Korean War vet who makes the rounds of every garage and barn sale in the area. Some of his finds are amazing. Some are just unusual. They're all of value to someone.

    This SxS gun is in fairly decent shape. The furniture looks like light oak and it is checkered - in a primitive form.

    The hammers cock and the triggers work - not smooth, of course. Everything seems ancient except the brass nipples and the two "modern" screws that hold the hammers in place. I found one like it - but looks more original - and I've inserted the link above. That one is being offered for $850. I'd like to see if I can get about $300 for my friends gun. Tell me what you think and what you think it is worth.

    Oh, it comes with what looks like an original oak tamping rod with brass end

    I know for certain that I'm not up to shooting clay sports with a muzzle loader, but maybe someone in TS land is.

    Is anyone interested in at least making an offer? If not, I'll allow this to die - and return the gun to the seller.
