    Favorite websites?

    The world-wide-web contains millions of websites, but I find that I've settled into checking only a few on any kind of regular basis:

    Firearms related:
    CombatCarry (of course!)
    The High Road
    FAL files

    News and politics:
    Free Republic
    various blogs

    Shopping and entertainment:
    Ebay
    Amazon

    What great websites am I missing out there? What are your favorite sites that you hit on a regular basis?

    TA - in truth way too many to mention. Gun ones are pretty obvious.

    I use MSNBC and CBS for free news vids at times, and get some fun vids from BigBoys and PlanetVid now and again.

    I use search a lot as a quick route to data needs, and also use Wunderground for my weather checks.

    Yep - too many to mention really - my bookmarks must run into many hundreds now.

    I try to limit my web surfing these days - I work on a computer all day and so I try to rest my eyes. My eye doc also said I should, and I have pretty crappy eyesight.

    I only post on CombatCarry these days for gun stuff.

    I do online shopping at Amazon.com, Zappos.com, Overstock.com, Smartbargains.com, and eBay once in a blue moon. I'll order bulk ammo from Ammoman.com.

    If I'm absolutely bored, I'll see what's new at GarageGames.com and download a demo. Occasionally I'll set my computer up as a server and play Think Tanks as player Runt. If anybody is up for a match, let me know. It's only $20 for the game. Beware; I might be slick and put all the stupid bots on the opposing team.

    As much as I hated to give Comcast more of my money, I haven't had any complaints about their broadband. Don't know if I could go back now!

    http://www.raptureready.com (some VERY interesting straight NEWS items here you won't find elsewhere & they give a link to the original url) Put the info presented together and you can come up with some interesting (or far fetched if you like) conclusions.
    http://www.wnd.com (WorldNetDaily) This is simply the BEST news site on the net!

    I've found www.packing.org to be one of the best gun sites.

    Gives good gun related news stories and other good stuff, such as laws and pending legislation.

    Sometimes get a little irritated reading the anti-gun articles because of how insane they appear/are, but at least they show how both sides think.
