I know this stuff can get pretty emotional and frustrating. But let's all remember that we're in this lifeboat together and it's in our best interest to row together.

Personal attacks don't accomplish anything.
Over the top rhetoric doesn't either.
And there are polite and impolite ways to address a new person asking a question.

Cheers:)

I'd like to buy the world a home and furnish it with love,


Grow apple trees and honey bees, and snow white turtle doves.


I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony,


I'd like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company.


No, just kidding. I agree with you. - Mark ;)

Ahhh, Dont go wasting a precious survival commodity like TP on somebody's house! Just use all the crappy leaflets from the poloticians already making it out to a neighborhood near you!

Being the gun forum slut that I am I've been on forums that operate in a predominately civil manner and others that have no such pretense. Both types can be enjoyable to visit.

I will say that the civil boards are generally more informative and helpful. This may be because the person that has the perfect answer to a question may not want to take the time to explain it if the asker called him a smegma head the day before. Another likely explanation is that a civil board isnít as likely to drive knowledgeable and sometimes older folks away in frustration and disgust.

I believe Mr.Franklin said it best...
"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall hang separately."

Perhaps that's because I'm just too damned big & loud ;)

I am indeed glad to see a ballsy well-run shop treat off-list lowers as "just another gun" and kinda a standard stocked item.

And always glad to stop by. Esp convenient as it's just a few doors down from the coffee/donut shop ;) , and I live 1mi away, just off old Hillsdale on Communcations Hill.

Maybe I can sneak in today and pick up my Ruger Red Label shotty - depends on work - as I think my 10day wait is over. My buddy that came along when I bought it will likely pickup his P38 and shotty this wknd.

Haha... Yeah, well I'm overly loud and opinionated myself... anytime I get started everyone kind of just gives me a look. lol

Too bad you weren't around in 99 after SB-23 passed. The place was a veritable nuthouse. In the last couple of months the shop would be open till 10-11pm, and on the last day, the store didn't close until after midnight. Talk about assault weapon madness... Which made the enactment of AB-50 kind of sad. The last day of .50 BMG sales and the store had been empty for nearly 2 hours before closing... All the people who wanted .50s bought them early after the bill passed. In the last couple of months, nobody really cared and the store closed quietly, and 30 minutes early.


Phish, that Model 52 is nice, but did you ask the owner to show you the one he has hidden in the back room? ;)
