I decided the other night to develop my own site since packing.org has been having so many troubles lately, and Mark has been completely ignoring any and all emails (and it's his site, his right to ignore it if he wants -- I just think it's a shame and wish he'd take 5 minutes to post a message and say whether he's going to let it self destruct or not.) I've been wanting to take a crack at a firearms related website for awhile now, and it seems now is as good a time as any.
handgunlaw.us is good for state law information, but there is more going on at packing.org that I feel is still valuable, like the 'talk' section... granted it has strayed as of late (too many 'I hate the ratings!' posts) but generally has good topical postings. In all, PDO is (was?) a great all-around resource that just needs some attention.
