I joined here at the advice of Gary Brommeland after I ordered a mag carrier from him. Seems leather isnt the only thing Gary knows. It is very different than some other forums

Same here I joined after talking to Gary and he told me about his becoming a moderator here.
Gary is a real quality person to deal with and his advice has always been good advice.
IMHO we have a real quality group here in this forum who try to be helpful to it's members.

Welcome to the club. You get one forum down on you and you find that they contact other forums. It's their little nasty way of trying to keep you from getting the word around that they are giving people the royal shaft.
Well they don't own all of the internet. Well not yet anyway.

I read more than I post. When I read threads here, I find it enjoyable. I may not agree with another persons opinion or actions, but they are not rude or telling anybody to F off. And most of the time people get logical reason why they feel that way.
Hats off to a good forum and good people

Internet attitude? I remember when CB radio started getting popular that folks had a tendency to be "big and bad" behind the microphone. When you got around to meeting them, it was a totally different story. Maybe there's a correlation there...anonymity brings out bravado. I, too, visited several forums before I found this one and I agree that the moderators and general membership on this forum are about as level headed a bunch as I've "seen". This is the only CCW forum where I thought my membership would be worthwhile.

Back "in the day," my version of that was, "It takes a small man to hide behind a microphone."
I've since updated it to, "It takes a small man to hide behind a keyboard."
When you come right down to it, there's simply NO excuse for bad manners.
It is the over-all tone and tempement that I love about this Forum.
Political Correctness has now "evolved" into Political Cowardice.

I think I have a very good idea what forum the OP was referring to . . . and it represents my favorite long gun!
In that forum, the Mods frequently throw gas on the fires that sprout up. That sets the "tone" of acceptability for a forum, for good or bad.
The difference here is that the Mods set a civilized tone for the forum, and thus the members work within that framework.
That is what makes this forum the absolute best for CCW issues!
Keep up the good work guys and gal!

Aside from the variety of topics discussed here, the quality of the posts (and the people making them) keep me here. There are several other gun forums I like to visit, model specific to several of the guns I own, and they also seem to keep the language and tone civil. However, being civil doesn't mean we all agree, far from it. Even here there are more than a few differences of opinion. This same subject was discussed a few days ago at one of those other forums and I think I'll repeat a comment I made there... we should all feel free to disagree, but we should try not to become too disagreeable while doing it!

As great as this forum is, don't sell all others short. There are some other excellent specialty forums out there that are civilized like this one.
I moderate one that is focused on the Northeast region of the US, www.northeastshooters.com, covering all aspects of gun ownership and it is run much like this forum. The "magic" is when the forum management sets down rules requiring that all members show respect for each other.
