    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.

    Bruce? ya left yourself wide open for that ... We ALL appreciate everything you and the Mods, and also Bumper, for this great Forum..

    I lurk thru the other Forums from time to time, and find them pretty outragous. In fact, I attempted to subscribe to one of em, and was told my IP was banned. I think wrote a VERY polite E mail to the Admin and NEVER recieved a reply. Guess They feel they're way too good for me .. I'll just stay right here, and enjoy the good company here, besides, where else can ya go to get the great info that's supplied here?

    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 posted a couple threads to get my feet wet and get some honest answers. I got answers that were well thought out and had some "logic" behind them.

    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.

    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!

    I just want to say this :

    I LUB YOU GUYS!!

    I very rarely trot over to other forums besides this one anymore. I feel much more at home here. I feel as though I share a common bond with the rest of the posters here in that we are serious about what our responsiblities are and enjoy having meaningful conversations and ideas that we can all share in. Everyone here is respectful towards one another and some very good conversations result from that. Kudos to all that make this place what it is!

    Except for Bruce. 45s are for the people who need the "biggest" in order to compensate for something!!!

    How the heck did I miss out on the opening of this thread?

    I found this site just over a year ago. I picked up a business card, outside, in the rain and soaking wet, while having a cigarette. It was one of many that Bumper had left around the SHOT Show.

    I joined that night.

    I belong to or lurk on no other forums.

    When I have time to surf the net, this is where I go.

    We had a thread some time ago about 'the maturity level here'. It's the reason I stay.

    The members and Moderators on this site are the best on the web for a gun forum.

    Kudos to you all, new and old.

    To Bumper,

    acparmed,

    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.
