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.

    Good way to ruin a kid for trap shooting.

    Far better choices on the market. The guys here are not joking about the recoil.


    We had a boy on our High School Team show up with one. We called it the mule as that's what it kicked like. He was even using Nobel Sports Low Recoil loads. The couple of months he shot it, his scores steadily went to crap as he got so gun shy he didn't even want to shoot. The kid's dad ended up buying a used BT 99 for him and over the next year and a half he became one of our best shooters.

    If you don't heed the warning, I hope your daughter is one tough broad.

    I bought a brand new one off the shelf at my club two years ago. Super light gun, maybe all of 7 lbs, 14" LOP, stiff trigger and although it broke targets it also broke me. I'm 6'2, 220 lbs and the recoil with light trap loads was enough to have me thinking about "when is this round going to be over" rather than concentrating on the target. I had it two months and sold it to someone on this site. Was glad to see it go. My 11 yr old grandaughter shot a Beretta RL 391 and now shoots a BT 99 Micro with a Gracoil. After shooting that H&R myself, there's no way I'd have given it to her to use. Save your money, buy a legitimate trap gun that your daughter will enjoy shooting and can progress in. The H&R isn't it.

    Not a bad shooter, but you'll need to do something about recoil, even with light loads and I don't think it's a good idea to start a Kid off on a hammer gun. You're better off putting your money into an 870 or 1100.

    Dont know about other states but in the Tx 4-H youth program guns with exposed hammer that have to be physically cocked are not allowed.
