    Exclamation Leave your attitudes at the door

    We have had a recent increase in membership, which we can all appreciate. I really like seeing more people interested enough in concealed carry that they research good, solid, reliable information and opinions. But, when we have an influx of new members, we often have a problem of attitudes brought into the forums. We encourage all of our members to read the Forum Rules before posting and see what is allowed and what is not allowed. This forum was created to be different than many other forums. We don't tolerate flames, attacks, name calling, ethnic slurs.

    If you can't take an opposing position or have a different opinion than another member without including sarcasm or making your response a "smartass comment" then you should restrain yourself from posting. On the flipside, if you are so sensitive that you cannot accept honest (and respectful) constructive criticism or having someone post an opposing view, you may want to simply lurk.

    We understand that everyone (including the moderators and myself) occasionally have bad days. When that happens, and you can't seem to restrain yourself from taking that out on someone else in a thread or post, do yourself, and all of us, a favor and don't post at all. We really don't want to hear it. Here, things are kept civil, as a rule. If you can't be civil, you need to find another forum because you won't last long here.

    I don't really want to sound like a dictator, but you are in my home. And in my home, if you cause trouble you're invited to leave.

    Well said Bumper.

    The "Rules" and the great people of this forum are what keeps me here.

    Well said Bumper, and to take it a step further if a poster finds themselves enraged to the point that they cannot control their response to something they read on an internet forum, they should re-evaluate if they have any business carrying a gun in the first place.

    I would just like to say that it's your site and I will always be polite to others. I just like to enjoy others experiences and like to learn from all the knowledgeable people on this fourm.

    I just like to come hear and read what others are doing and showing off there new finds that they have aquired for the sake of their enjoyment for the hobby of either collecting or just having something they have always wanted.

    So if you see me get a little rowdy just bop me upside the head, ok, I'll behave.

    Way to go with the Great site by the way. You did good.
