    Here is a link to the forum rules for using the classifieds by Participating Members. https://www.trapshooters.com/posts/2466655/

    Trapshooters.com is not a auction or for sale site like gunbroker etc. We are a forum first with excellent vendors and a classified section for use by members who participate on the forum.

    You Don’t:

    As per the rules, members are required to have a minimum of 50 posts on their account before using the Private Message function and the Classifieds area.

    Once your account reaches 50 posts, your status will be automatically updated (within an hour).

    The rules are listed here for the classifieds area


    also if you do not remain an active participating member your access t the classifieds and PMs will be shut off

    Possibly, but I doubt it. He will either never return, or when he comes back try to circumvent the rules yet again. Just guessing of course.

    These people aren't here to buy or sell.

    They are here to harass the moderators.

    If they could be traced I think you would find their IP address on another site or two.

    I hope you are right, it would be scary to think there's that many numbskulls with guns frequenting here.

    to get the information you are seeking it is pretty basic and standard on forums. You request a PM from admin. Or a moderator. We have a thread set up for this. It it obvious that you are stoking conversation along on this thread and others just to reach the posting threshold so you can list you shotguns for sale. Take part in meaningful clay target shooting conversation here on the forum and we will see how it goes. All the dribble posts like where is the grand program are gonna go away......if you can find this forum you can find the ata website and info on Linn creek
