    What, No Party for 80,000+ Members?

    I believe some kind of celebration is warranted, given that the DC forum has recently passed 80,000 members. When I joined in May, I think the membership was about 72,000. That means we've added over 1000 members a month. Who's buying?

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    The main party, catered dinner, and year-end awards are always held at DC's corporate offices. Everything you need to know, plus travel accommodations, are included in your invitation. The invitations are very clear and specific, I can't imagine why the confusion? Oops......... uhhhh, uh.....well? Oh i bet the mail is probably slow this year. Yeah, that's it.....the mail.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Ok, so when's the "2000 active members with at least 5 posts who've made at least one post in the past 3 months" party?
