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.

    Went to look at gun and found a 9000G with a shovel handle on it. I have seen handle on PW, Hornady, and others but where can you buy one for a 9000G? Mec says the have never made them. PW and Hornady are side shafted and the Mec is in the middle. Any body have one? Effective? Modify a PW handle? Where is Whiz and his blow torch? I'll bet he can make anything. IMHO Omaha

    Mine was made by Don Brown in Indiana. Called the Adjust-A-Stroke spade handle. He also made a Big-Ball add-on handle. His spade handle is great, and has worked well for 5-6 years. Back when I got it, you could contact Don at 1-765-654-7866, or 1711 S. County Road 180 East, Frankfort IN 46041. Phil E

    Don's the man, his handle has been copied by PW and a couple of others but he is the original.

    I used to make these shovel type handles for P/W and Hornady 366 loaders. I supplied the P/W handle to Whiz White and he sold them. I suppose you could adapt one to a MEC.
