    Thanks, Bumper

    Hey, Bumper. Not a complaint, just a comment. It's getting to be a full-time job just welcoming all the new members around here. Thanks for making all this possible. Like so many people express here, I have learned more in the past few months on this forum than I could have in years on my own or on other forums. One of the things I like here is the willingness to recommend another forum for help. Our holster artists (they are you know) will recommend someone elses work and praise the work of others. You have created a place here where there is almost no jealousy. I am glad that so many new people are discovering this site. And if it gets to where I have to work overtime to welcome all the new ones, I'll just have to work overtime because I want new members to know that they truly are welcomed here.

    Thanks again for the investment you are making in us and in our fight to save this country.

    I too what to thank Bumper for the great site. I left Packing to come here. It got un bearable with all the fighting. It got to where I never posted because all the pins and needles I'm sure that would be stuck in me. Here I was greeted when I joined, I posted without being made to look like I'm silly and I recieved a star under my name which I'm not sure what it means as yet. but I'm sure its not bad.

    Thanks Bumper. You've given us a Civil Cyber Community here and I appreciate it. You and the moderators do an outstanding job. This Texan thinks you all are fantastic.

    Bumper, you da man!

    What more can I say?


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I, too, am happy here.

    I've checked PDO occasionally, but won't post there because of what's going on. Can always hope it gets fixed up, there are still a lot of people there who believe in it.

    For me, I may check around, but this will be home. Lots of varying opinions well presented lead to a great learning and sharing environment.

    Thanks, all of you. It's not me, however, that makes this forum what it is. I have to give alot of the credit to the moderators that spend way more time here than I do taking care of problems, welcoming new members and keeping things running smoothly. It's rare that I am able to be on during the day on weekdays. I depend on the moderators very heavily. And they have always "done me proud". But, it's also the members, their experiences, their willingness to help out other members and, ultimately, their support of our rules which keep the place civil. All the pieces just seem to fit to make this forum a good place to hang out. I get busy, but I never get tired of the forum, it's members and the staff.

    I appreciate all of your support.
