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.

    Can't find 1st target pins anywhere. Considering doing this as a small business with Johnny. Would you buy some, if available?

    Goal is $1 per. Would send out samples to get started.

    Mini orange target on lapel pin that says, '1st'. Nice way to help promote the sport with new shooters.

    Thanks - Joe

    You must mean ShotGunSportsMagazine. Their pin says, "Long Run 1 Straight". That's embarassing. We can make a better first target pin than that...and I sure hope we can beat $3.50.

    John, I'm very interested. I run a youth beginner program, help out with a Youth Field Day event and coach a Women In The Outdoors event. I've been wanting something to hand out for years.

    If you get this going I would buy some. I enjoy getting youth and women shooters and I think they would enjoy something like that.

    I'd like to hear Holga say that to Johnny - "Forget about clearing the table, we're going shooting." I just had to type it out...

    If this develops there will be honorary pins for Shootlow and Hauxfan.

    Found these number pins that would work. You can even combine different pins to get the discount, but there's nothing specific to our sport.

    We're looking for a way to produce these. Thanks to those who have answered.

    Larry makes some great pins.

    He sent me a sample of the one he did for the History Channel's National Geographics series. Absolutely top professional pin, and Larry's a great guy to deal with.

    In days gone by, they used to have a medal type pin and you were able to keep adding to your long run as you went. The first banner under the medal might be 25 straight, the next might read 37 and the next 52 and so on. BUT, this was before a 25er was the norm. I can just seem them blasting away with their model 12's and 31's (and many others), killing 'em on one end while being crippled on the other!

    Yep I saw your other post, did you get any prices? Our club has several youth shoots every year, kids get to shoot rifle, handgun, muzzle loader, trap and sporting clays, would be nice to give them away.
