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.

    I am looking for a 16 gauge hunting gun. Something along the lines of a 870 or 1100. No fixed full chokes and nothing crazy expensive. If you have something please let me know. Thanks Shane bassn73@yahoo.com

    Careful, many 16ga guns were built on 12ga frames which kind of defeats the purpose. Click the link for a great related article.

    An 870 is a good choice. A few on the gun sites lately.

    Probably without screw in chokes, but you don't need them anyway.

    Also, a lot of older guns, such as Stevens, and private labels if your not fussy.

    Those so called cheap hardware store guns were pretty well made compared to what we call cheap today.

    The 16ga Citoris, even the original ones from the late 80s, did have screw-in chokes. If you've never had the pleasure of using one, they are light handling and quite elegant for the money. Superb upland game guns.

    That reminds me... If you want an inexpensive, light, reliable 16ga you can always get an Ithaca 37 featherlight. Classic, and frquently available at gun shows. Dollar-for-dollar perhaps the best 16ga value around for hunting.

    Oop's I forgot the Browning BPS is built on the 20ga frame, I also have a pile of factory ammo as well as a few empty cases a few wads and a almost new Mec Sizemaster that would be for sale with the gun.

    Fred's BPS offer sounds pretty good if it's in nice shape.
