Would anybody know why BMI is advertising a whole new line of Magnum Traps but it seems that there is not to much available on their website !!!. Is this company going under ????

The company actually did shut down about 8 years ago or so when the owner passed away. They just started producing a limited line of traps the last few years when they started production again. I've noticed they have a very limited product line but I don't know about availability of the traps they do sell. I am a huge fan of BMI's and have some 1.5 coilsprings and 110 bodygrippers. I bought these about 20 years ago and they still have very strong springs. I caught my first coyote in a 1.5 BMI coilspring trap.

Can't help you out on that one. Didn't even know BMI traps were still around (I bought some 110s that have done well for me back about a dozen-15 years ago) but haven't seen them locally for a while. Perhaps they are struggling, sort of like K-Mart vs. Wal-Mart. If you think they're good traps, I'd still get them even if they might be discontinued, especially if you can get a good deal on them!

OK, I see that t rick knew the story. Makes sense...
