Message for Classified Sellers — How to Remove a Product Listing
For those of you who already sell items in our Classifieds, we have one request: delete your ad when the item sells. After guys sell their goods successfully, some of them neglect to delist their products and remove their ad. We suspect some newcomers to the site haven’t bothered to read the instructions. But it’s very, very easy to remove your advert once you’ve sold your stuff. In fact, you can delete your ad in a matter of seconds, with just two clicks of your mouse!

First, find the ad you placed in our FORUM MARKETPLACE. Then simply scroll down to the end of the thread (below all the replies) and look for the gray “Remove Topic” button. Click that and you’re done. Now wasn’t that easy?

Gun Talk Radio Show Tackles Cooper Controversy

antique radioTune in to your radio this Sunday guys. Dan Cooper will be the topic du jour on Tom Gresham’s radio show. If the show is not broadcast in your area, you can stream audio over the internet by visiting www.guntalk.com.

Gresham’s Gun Talk is the #1 firearms-related radio show in the world. Every week, Tom brings together interesting figures in the shooting community. But this week is extra special. Tom and his lead-off guest David Codrea will discuss the controversy involving Dan Cooper. When it was revealed, earlier this week, that Dan Cooper made donations to the Democratic Party, many gun owners expressed concern, and some vowed not to purchase Cooper Rifles. In the heat of the controversy, Dan Cooper resigned his position at Cooper Firearms, but Dan’s politics remain a hot issue. Along with the Cooper controversy, Codrea, Guns magazine columnist and author of a popular web blog, will discuss the the election, and the power of the web for the gun rights movement.

Gresham will also interview Bill Dermody, a marketing exec with Savage Arms. Just this week, it was Bill who provided AccurateShooter.com with an exclusive “sneak preview” of new dual-port rifles in Savage’s 2009 line-up. On Gun Talk, Bill will discuss the Savage product line and general shooting issues. “Bill is a regular on Gun Talk,” Tom Gresham said. “He loves to chat with callers, whether it’s about Savage, or just shooting, hunting and guns in general.”

Savage Benchrest Rifle

Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk is carried on 64 radio stations across the country, streamed on the internet, and broadcast on XM Satellite Radio. The nationally-syndicated live radio show will be broadcast Sunday, November 2, starting at 2:00pm Eastern Time.

Cooper Firearms One-Shot Competition in Montana

Today, Cooper Firearms hosts its annual One-Shot Competition. Originally conceived as a fun promotional contest to help Cooper find its niche with the shooting public, the One-Shot Competition has grown into a nationally-recognized event. Rifles must have Cooper actions and stocks made by Cooper or a recognized Cooper Arms vendor. The premise is straightforward. Shooters get one (1) shot at a dot the size of a pencil eraser at 150 yards. No sighters. No spotting scopes. The closest shooter wins the target to take home to put on his wall and a chance to compete for a new rifle.

Cooper Firearms One-Shot

One Shot at a Dot on an Oil Painting
What makes this competition unique is that the targets are placed on a collection of oil paintings! Eight shooters are assigned to each painting. Their eight names, and corresponding numbers (1-8), are written around the edge of the canvas. The target is a 1/4″ dot on a paper paster target that measures about 2 inches in diameter. One at a time, competitors take a shot at their paster. Shooters are judged by the bullet strike relative to this 2″ paster, not the symbolic target added to the painting as a reference point. The bullet hitting closest to the target’s center will win the painting. The top two shooters on each painting get a chance to compete for the grand prize, a wood-stocked Cooper TRP-3 rimfire benchrest rifle.

Cooper Firearms One-Shot

The one-shot competition carries a hefty $150.00 entry fee, but there is a 100% payout of the entry fee to the winners of each group shoot. The one-shot competition officially begins today, August 16, at 9:30 am. After lunch (catered by Cooper), the painting shoots commence. The final competition for the TRP-3 will begin around 3:00 p.m. At 6:00 p.m., Cooper’s all-you-can-eat and drink party (which is rightfully as famous as the competition itself) caps off the event.

Note: It’s too late to sign up for the 2008 event, but next year, if you own a Cooper, you might head up to Montana and join the Cooper folks for a one-of-a-kind competition.
