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

Well, snowdoc, you may be off topic, but I'll join you. They'll just have to punish us all!

This is a fantastic group, and Bumper and all of the Moderators deserve a big "Thank You" and "Well Done"!
:congrats: :congrats: :congrats: :congrats: :congrats:

And - the Members too!

:congrats: :congrats: :congrats: :congrats: :congrats:

This is because of the Terminator. I'm sure you've met him. He walks around calling himself Bud White, but we all know who he really is. He lays the smack down.

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!! :image035: :rolleyes:

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"...

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!

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.

Well done! :bier:

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 :bier:

I absolutely agree with you, Thumper. Without our members support, we would not be able to "keep the peace". :hand10:

All -
I'm pretty much 100% in-line with what's already been said. I've noticed that I'm not frequenting some of the other forums as much because of the very thing that really is lacking here - aggressive chest-thumping and narrow-minded cluelessnes.

I'm a guy that's trying to start his own business and break into the "industry" so a lot of my internet time is spent researching and meeting/talking to people in forums...and I haven't been overly impressed with too many of them out there.
I like to learn what I can and share what I know in a productive way. I'm all about checking the egos at the door because an ego has no place in a learning environment - and I've got a decent amount of my own real-world experience, unlike some personalities we all run into in _other_ places who just don't "get it"...

FWIW, this place is pretty much where I've decided to settle in because of the quality of the members and the overall intelligence level of the posting (yes, even Redneck Repairs :tongue::tongue: )

Thanks Mods for running such a quality site and keeping the backyard clean.

I'm glad someone finally started this thread. :hand10:

I'll say that after coming here, I hardly ever head over to Packing. I don't see the name calling, and ranting that goes on over there. We don't always agree on everything here, but I've found that everyone's idea and thoughts are respected here. Even when I see a disagreement it's never a shouting match. People just state thier opinions and thoughts, and don't try to force everyone to fall in line. As it was stated before. This is because of the people here and how this place is run. Thanks, Philip

Yep, this is a great place to learn without feeling stupid if you ask a simple question and without having to worry about other folks getting on your case! But as far as this forum almost making the NRA look liberal, I dunno, has Ted Kennedy joined the NRA yet?:banana: :banana: :banana:

This is one of the FEW forums I've found where you can feel free to disagree with other forum members (especially the 'old hands') without being browbeaten, insulted or told to "shape up or ship out".

I spend a lot of time on the web in gun & self-defense related forums and most - not all, but most - are very cliquish and more like cheering sections for the forum moderators/senior members and their topic of choice. Dare to disagree or offer a different opinion and you are usually run out of town on a rail after being tarred and feathered. Here you're free to express your opinion as long as you don't get too personal in your disagreements, insult anyone else and keep the retoric clean.
