Default I wanna recurve, so...

I want a recurve to start the traditional style.
I got a 12 gauge semi auto beretta 3901 shoots 2 3/4 and 3 inch. Has some surface rust on the barrel.
Needs a internal firing spring according to the gun shop that costs around 13 $ bucks to fix.
It will fire but not every time due to a weak spring he said.
I want to trade this shotgun and I'll throw in some dove shells for a traditional setup.
I have a video of the action if you want to text.

How do you plan to get it in the hands of whoever you make a trad with?

No, I was just curious if it was to be a face to face swap only, or if you would ship the gun & if so how.

What draw weight are you looking for?
I have a pretty nice old recurve with two sets of limbs, but the light weight set is 65# @ 28"

This old girl was made by a guy named Jay Weathers from Brownwood.

The brown glass limbs were built for this riser, and are the light weight set at 65# @ 28"

The black glass limbs were built for a different riser. They bolt to this riser perfectly straight, but I had to do some cosmetic work on the limb butts to make them match the shape. If memory serves, these limbs are around 70# @ 28"

Both sets of limbs on this riser make a 62" bow

She's not the best looker, but she's a darn fine shooter with either set of limbs. The arrows are no longer available.

Might be a bit heavy in draw weight for you if you're just starting out, but there she is.

Rick...Nice bow but your crazy trading him a #70 bow for starters. How much cash...I might buy it.

Good luck Mason. I suggest going to Bob Sarrels in Menchaca, TX and getting a 40lbish bow.

Was that shotgun in a flood? I would suspect more going on there than a return spring and surface rust. The gas system for this shotgun is somewhat notorious. Buyer beware.

If you're not interested in making a trade with him on it then why even make a comment at all?

Good luck on the trade op

I didn't bother pointing this out earlier, but I will now.

Stuff like this belongs on the Classifieds, not in the regular discussion forums. If you want to get the attention of the trad group, then post a link to your classifieds post.

Herein lies the problem. The classifieds are not classified. It is one big heap of stuff for sale. It is maddening unless you just like to sort through ninety nine things to find that one thing that you are looking for. I am seeing more posts where guys try to avoid the classifieds and just go straight to their target group. I can't say that I blame them.

Yep, it's a madhouse for sure.

To avoid any problems though, most of the guys in the trad forum still post their ads in the classifieds, and then link the ads in a post here. Seems to be working out good for them.

The way I look at it is... it is what it is... and you didn't have to pay for it.

About the only thing I am going to ask Michael is that he not get rid of the Trad Forum like he has contemplated doing in the past. I argued our existence then, and I'll continue to argue it some more. The main reason isn't that I don't want to see compound stuff, or any other BS elitism that some people cast on us from time to time... but because there is enough difference between the two disciplines that a person who wants to learn and chat about trad needs a community that will help them along. I learned about trad here, got bit by the trad bug here, and want to make sure TBH continues to have a place where a person can make that jump, or dabble, whatever if they want to.

That is what I get for not actually paying attention to all the rules.

For as long as I have been here (only a handful of years), it is has been a common practice for the trad forum... and most likely because the trad forum is pretty small in comparison to most other forums. Unless the mods aren't seeing them (which may be the case) they might just be turning a blind eye because those threads don't really turn into anything more than just the link (trad regulars are pretty good about just clicking the link and taking discussion on the item over there.)

Not interested in the shotgun but I have the bow for you. It's a Samick Sage, 45#s. I bought it a couple years ago but didn't have the time for a new hobby. I've got some Gold Tip Trad arrows that come with it also.

Trying to raise his post count so he can buy/sell stuff most likely. Unfortunately those non contributing posts will work. But look on the bright side. They are non controversial posts.
