    Milestone

    This post marks my 18,000 post here on DC. I never imagined almost 6 years ago when I joined that I would still be here and an active member after all this time. Over those 6 years I've seen many changes in the forum and many members come and go.

    I wish I could say I have given more than I have gotten from the forum, but I can't. I've learned much more than I've given. I was not new to carrying when I joined. I had 12 years of carrying under my belt, but what I knew (or didn't know) was self learned. The site opened my eyes to many things I had not considered. It's given me insight into SA, alternatives to a firearm for defense, tactics and avoidance techniques.

    In return I have attempted to share the knowledge I have acquired in my 60+ years and from others here. The knowledge base of the membership here is phenomenal. The most important and impressive thing though, is the willingness to share it. No one who comes to the site, with an open mind, can leave without having gained something from it.

    To the staff here, "Thank you for having me". To the friends I have made here, "May we spend many more years sharing our knowledge, our joys in life and even our sorrows".

    I totally agree after 40 plus years shooting I.E. military training an police training, this forum keeps your on going learning about new weapons an ideas about security, maintenance up to date. So many knowledgeable people in one place willing to share is amazing shouts out to all members who have given me so many great tips. This can only keep us safer in these trying times.

    Cool

    Wow Eighteen THOUSAND Posts in 6 years. You must be one super uber cool guy and here's why. On my second day here I got my first infraction. My second day for crying out loud!!! The first month I was here I never figured to still be here in 6 months. Yet here I am, at 6 months and 6 days. But this ain't about me it's about you Mister so I'll yield the remainder of my time to Archer51.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    At least not in public... you can still pm me to call me a jerk... :)

    Grats archer! That is a heck of a milestone. I know your contributions have helped me and I'm sure everyone else here as well. I guess 18k posts proves you don't know when to shut the heck up. For that we are grateful.

    Keep on keepin on.

    The senior members are the bedrock of this site. Everyone has something to contribute, but you all have gone beyond the call of duty. A salute to you all.

    Hypothetically speaking though, if one were to act in the same mannerism as one might suspect a jerk would act, the shoes of the suspected jerk may fit one's feet. . . hypothetically, of course. But to call someone a jerk would be rude, crude, and socially (and forumly) unacceptable.
