This Needs To Be Said!
I originally posted this on a different thread and it was off topic, so I copied it here. I really feel Bumper and the moderators need to hear this......
Man, what a great forum. Bumper, you should be proud. we talk about holsters and guys like Gary and Kevin respond. we talk about ccw issues and laws and Gary Slider responds. ussca, and tim responds.
I think you need an NRA category and pretty soon wayne, mark keefe, or sandra froman, will start to respond! or maybe we could make a presidential Forum category....talk to W himself, woudn't that be nice!!!!!!!
everyone is on combat carry these days, it is the place to be for CC.
On a slightly more serious note, some forum are polluted with people looking to argue and cause trouble. They "get angry" and call people names or 'yell' through their keyboard. I really appreciate the fact that none of that happens here. It is a very comfortable and inviting forum that people feel at ease to read and post at. I feel it truly represents the thoughts and beliefs of the ccw person and lifestyle. I would not be surprised to see people of 'rank' in the NRA or other large groups on here to discuss issues, as IMO this is THE forum to do so.
Thanks to Bumper and all the moderators.
I know this may be off topic, do what needs to be done, but I thought it needed to be said....somewhere.
....at least think about the presidential room, I will moderate

In the Moderator's room there are three bowls, one with white pebbles one with black, the third empty. When we see something questionable we each put a pebble in the empty bowl.
Beware the black pebbles!!

Well said, snowdoctor.
I'd love to see an NRA room, but I'm afraid most of the people here are a lot more conservative than the NRA is. Imagine that, a place where the NRA is almost "liberal"...

Our kind of place! A Good place!
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

I concur with the OP completely about the quality of this forum and the management here!
However, I can tell you from personal experience that the job of Moderator is much like "herding cats" and if it weren't for the wonderful folks that are the members of CC, the forum could never be this good. So give yourselves a pat on the back too!

very well said, I agree, this is a great forum!

Well said! I've found that I pretty much just stay right here anymore. I've become tired of the fighting and posturing elsewhere. Here, I get information -- good information -- from people who know what they are talking about. Alternate views are backed up with observations and insights.
I thank our moderators very much for the atmosphere here!

That's what keeps me coming back. Easy to find an argument, tough to find a relaxing place full of good people and good information.

I just have to add my .02 cents...
I know the Owner(s) and moderators work hard and I do appreciate them!
I'd like to say that the individual members deserve a pat on the back as well. What a great bunch of folks!
Thank you all, Frank

I absolutely agree with you, Thumper. Without our members support, we would not be able to "keep the peace".
