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.

Ive been trapshooting for a little over a year started when i was 14 am now 15.. started with a rem. 870 with cheap factory win. or rem. shells.. got a BT99 and got serious.. so i started shooting alot! Got a simple reloader mec 600.. put a couple thousand rounds through it an i was done! got a mec 9000.. well the price of lead is crazy and i was thinking about buying a lead shot maker.. i dont wanna buy a brand new one cause im 15 and dont have a job besides summer.. id like to buy a used one thats in great condition.. possibly with the set up.. cause i understand u have to build a stand and have a cooling tank.. well ive also considered makeing one.. i have about 250$ haha yeah. not alot but tell me what you guys think... what you guys got... any info will be so much help..

    A guy on here that goes by captainsmoke here has his shot makers and related stuff for sale. He has two shotmakers, the coolant and all the necessary items to make it happen.

    Here are some you-tube videos on shotmaking. I had lots of other threads in my watch file to share but they have all been deleted, bummer.
