    Thank you to a very nice and generous person....

    I want to take a minute and shout out a very big "THANK YOU" to a certain member here. I can't reveal his name because I'm afraid it may make things worse for him, but this gentleman offered to pay my dues to a gun-rights organization when he realized that I couldn't afford it. A very nice and generous act. Thank you!

    Wow!!! This gentleman offered a longer membership than he had to! What a guy! I like this guy! Maybe I should mention somewhere that I also have my eye out for a Bersa Thunder Pro 9mm! :)

    I can't help it... I'm just ecstatic right now!

    That's awesome! Remember this gracious and generous act. May your life be impacted by it...not simply in the now, but from here on out as you are gracious and generous to those in your world that experience a time of need like you did.

    What's that saying? "One good deed deserves another"? Or is it something like that?

    So - look for opportunities to "pay it forward". Pass the favor along!

    Yes, exactly. I always try to do good things for others, within my capabilities. Just today, in fact, in heavy rains I saw a young man standing outside his car because he couldn't get in for some reason. I called him over and offered him to sit in my dry car while we waited for the bus. Sometimes I'd see a kid walking to the bus stop, and if my kids know them, I'd offer them a ride. Stuff like that. I can't afford much, but I do try to help folks out if I can.

    Sometimes it's referred to as paying it forward. And incidentally there was a movie by the same name awhile back. That's how I became aware of it.

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

    So, someone is paying your gun organization dues that you can't afford - so you can buy a new gun?

    Did I read that right, or am I missing something?

    No, it was a joke. I "have my eye out for a new gun"... doesn't mean I can afford to buy one. Recent medical disaster forced me to give up a lot, and recently had to ask Dad to buy me the only gun we have now.
