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.

    My son shoots for Mason Dixon clay Busters http://masondixonclaybusters.com/ We are trying to lighten up the front end of his synthetic 1187 so he can mount the gun from low mount and swing it fast enough to catch up with the Olympic Skeet targets.

    IS THE BARREL STANDARD OR LIGHT CONTOUR. IF IT IS STANDARD, YOU NEED A STANDARD WT FOREND TO FIT OVER THE THICKER STANDARD WT BARREL. DID HE BORROW AND TRY A WOOD FOREND? I DON'T THINK THERE IS ENOUGH WEIGHT DIFFERENCE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

    PS. IF IT IS A STANDARD WEIGHT BARREL , SWITCHING TO A LC WILL REAP A LARGER WEIGHT REDUCTION.

    Thanks for the reply. We did already switch to a LC barrel, got it off trapshooter.com for $150..... what a deal:) Still want to do what I can to shave ounces of the front of the gun. Can't find anyone local here in south central Pa to try it out, and all the club 1187's are synthetic as well.
    Thanks again
    Chris

    I shot a 24" 1100 worked over by USAF for several years - shot myself into NRA Master with it before switching to Mirage skeet. Won more w/Mirage.

    Boyds stocks are making Monte Carlo stocks for 1100/1187. And said they would have foreends before the end of March, laminated or Walnut laser cut checkering

    Thanks for your reply John. I just sent you an email about my son and the club he shoots with. Forgot to tell you in the email on the home page for the club he is seated front row far left with his second place Pa SCTP State Championship Trap medal:)
    Thanks,
    Chris
