    Question Who pays for this site?

    OK, I've only been here a couple of weeks, but something I haven't figured out is... How is this site funded? No banner ads, no commercials, nothing.

    I'm certainly not complaining, just curious.

    I was not aware of this either, but I am glad he puts it up. I spend a fair amount of time here each day.

    You're all very welcome. I don't like ads and popups and banners. And, I expect most of you don't like them any more than I do. If I ever get to the point I can't handle the costs, I may have to get creative in covering them, but it won't be by loading our members with advertising. It also won't be by selling anyone's information....

    thank you

    Mr Bumper,

    Thank you for this site. It is one of the best if not the best forum and gun site I have ever found. It makes my long hard days at work go by much quicker. The only problem that I have now is that I am addicted and this site is the first thing I got to when I get to work. I am in LE so it is not that big of a deal but I have a bad habbit of spending over half my shift working on ways to get back to the station to check this site so I quess it is really a game for me know. JUST DONT QUIT FEEDING MY ADDICTION PLEASE!!!!!!

    Bumper, if you have paypal or something similar, why not put a "DONATE" icon somewhere up on the site?

    I think I speak for more than a few of us who would like to drop a few bucks on you now and then.

    Granted it may not pay for the site, but it will at least offset the cost, or buy you some ammo now and then.

    Appreciate all the hard work Bumper.
    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the weaponry to make the difference.
