    Does DC have a policy on how long posts are stored? Are they forever, or are they expunged after an arbitrary date? 1/1/19 looks like the cut-off date when looking at previous posts in the member area. Not necessarily opposed to the practice, just trying to understand how this works. Thanks,

    Scotty

    I've seen posts over 9 years old resurrected by someone.

    Maybe me. Used to be able to go back and find my own previous posts from years ago. Not so now.

    There was a software update a while back that seemed to eliminate access to posts from more than a year or two ago, at least via the search functions. An alternative route is to search via Google, including "Defensive carry" among your search terms.

    OP, are you talking about viewing posts in a sub-forum or searching for threads?

    If you're talking about viewing do you have the "view posts" option set back to the beginning or to some lesser time frame?

    Good question. I'll fiddle with it. Smitty said it might have been an update. Ive noticed I can't revive old, dead threads like I used to. I figured @msgt/ret and @OD* must be playing voodoo with my posts again.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Reason no. 2 for denying roosters in urban chicken coops - besides the noise, it keeps out the voodoo vegetarians.

    From your profile, there may be a limit on how many posts display, but I haven't noted an issue in search yet.

    I will do some more checking.

    Are you using advanced search?
