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.

    That's the only gun I ever owned that said Winchester on it that I liked, never should have let it get away. Mine was a 32" really good with 1&1\4 oz. #5s probably the best duck & Annie Oakley gun I ever had. Ross

    I bought a 30' Mod. one out of an antique shop in the mid 70's.

    It was a late one, and looked unfired.

    A gun collector friend of mine said they were made as late as 1957, because of their popularity.

    Would have made a nice trap gun.

    Yours really looks good with the jeweled bolt and marked trap gun.


    Regards....Gerald
