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.

    I am in need of a flint for a large swivel gun. I can only find them as 5, 10 or more at one purchase. I only need one. If you have one for sale, please let me know. I would like a 3/4" piece. Thanks, Mike

    Are you new to flintlocks? One isn't going to last - it will chip or break and then what.... better off to buy a few extra.

    It's a swivel gun and I suspect he only wants the flint for show.

    I just use field flint and knap it out for my flintlocks. It works like it should.
