    Six Year Anniversary

    I just noticed, as of yesterday, I have been enjoying y'all's company for 6 years! I'm a longtime handgunner who was carrying concealed well-before it became an accepted topic of polite conversion. I just wanted to take the time to say...thank you. Thanks for a community FULL of (mostly) knowledgable, responsible, cool-headed gun toters with an (almost) universal sense of humor!

    To you youngin's who've never enjoyed the rough & tumble banter between the regulars in an ol' time gun shop, this is about as close as you'll get to the rhino-hided friendliness of a bunch of mule-headed opinionators who know everything about every THING. But be careful or you might get a little scabbed-up. More importantly, when you're a rookie around around here, try (just try) to "ask" more than you "tell". It'll gain you acceptance & friends (and info) MUCH faster than just you startin'-in tellin' us about your Spec-Ops experiences and/or the crap you've heard from your friends at Zombie-Zapper.com .

    Again, thanks to ALL for all the chances you've given me to both learn & teach. Here's a (small-batch) Bourbon toast of Kentucky's finest to every Mother-Lovin' one of y'all. To my friends at DC...

    Not much of a bourbon drinker but here’s a beer to you, been here six years also.

    Scabbed-up ... oh, yeah! Where's SelfDefense when you need 'im, eh?

    EDIT: A quick <search> shows there are 185 active folks at DC who're celebrating their 6yr, this year (at least, those with >1 post since 6-1-12).
