View Full Version : Donations so you can help out...

I know that money doesn't grow on trees. So why would you help out?

As this forum has grown in such a short time this whole lower thing has been a problem from the perspective of someone who keeps the site.

As the intensity of the recent popular topics have grown so have the problems that go along with them. From things like potential legal issues to things like having decent equipment to make things work right, and the constant monitoring that must be done. Some of these things are costly.

I'm constantly contemplating what to do with the site sometimes. Yes, it is a real burden indeed definately not something I'm understating or making up.

Just imagine that you did it? It's like having a second job.

I can't promise that everything will be perfect or that it can be everything to everyone. I'm trying to run a good site and that is getting more difficult lately.

I almost hate to ask, but if you can please help out.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I have a BIG5 Turk mauser with a pretty beat up barrel sitting in a ATI scout stock I could donate.:)

The stock and bolt convertion was $100 and I dont know what the darn rifle cost but its pretty good other than the bore. I will try to post picks later.

Ramon,
I don't mind making a donation, but don't like the Paypal or credit card options. I can send you cash or a check if you PM me with an address, please.

Another donation made. I hope some of the rest of you can step up and help out this site. Seams not many donations thru paypal over the last few weeks. (1?) We need to keep the only CA friendly site up and going. I still stayed even though no for sale forum. :(

I can't see WHO has donated but I can see how many MAY have donated. Completed transactions number for moneys received, is by his paypal name. If you donate now his # is about 85. In two weeks donate and see if that # has moved much. Donate a few times and you'll see what I mean. I donated two weeks ago and today. The # has moved once. So lets donate guys. :D
(This is only for paypal) I know some send there donations in the mail. :D

Paypay says the successful transaction number is only updated after 30 days. So, it'll take some time to reflect this latest "passing of the hat". Thanks for bothering to do this Ramon.

Ramon,
Like some others I won't use Paypal but if you PM me the snail mail address and the name you want the check made out to, I'll mail in a check.

Ramon, Id like to auction off the Mauser on your site, can we get a temp permit to allow the C&R to be sold and funds sent straigth to the site?

Is that a no-go? Im not really sure what kind of legal issues this might cause but maybe a raffle would work if part of the $$ went to the NRA or something.

Donation sent!:) Thanks for years of great service Ramon!

If it weren't for the Calguns.net collective I wouldn't have my OLL lowers which bring me great joy!

And thanks for letting me be myself and speak my mind within the rules. I've been banned from a forum just because the owner didn't like my personality.

Calguns.net is a class act!:cool:

Seller Reputation
The Seller Reputation Number measures how many Verified PayPal members have paid that seller. New transactions are added 30 days after they occur, to ensure that the Reputation Number reflects successful exchanges.


Takes 30 days for a transaction to post, also assuming the recepient didn't cap his reputation. Unverified members don't count as well, and there's alot of them out there from my experience. I have had mine capped at 1000 for nearly 4 years.

That said, I'm not a fan of paying with paypal, since the transaction history is on file with them forever and I'm paranoid. ;)

I'm not rich, and I don't make a whole lot of money, but I just sent in a personal donation of $25 from bartelt1508 at comcast... This isn't from 'the shop' this is from my wallet.

Hope the little bit helps...

What are the chances that the Gun Sales portion of this site will return?

I'm not aware of the legal issues that you are having.

Ok,

$20.00 sent tonight.
I would like to encourage everyone else to send in money too.

Can we get the for sale forum back?
Or at least explain why it is gone?
Perhaps I could help in some other way.
Thank you for a great site.

i missed this as well...i dont do paypal so if you can send me a snailmail address ill send you a good contribution. im not into the whole upper lower thing yet but this site not only has helped me with problems, been very educational, and been a good source of entertainment but has also helped be be legal. a nice donation is a lot cheaper than defending myself from an ignorance of the law thing....thanks again ramon.

I've offered more than once to help in e-mails to
Ramon. I know he has his hands full with family.
I won't use Paypal either, so has anybody received
an address where to a donation ? If so, please PM me
and I'll confirm with the Admin if this is a legit address
to help the site out.

Not that I wouldn't trust anybody here not to give a
legit address, but ya know sometimes one's fingers
can hit the wrong keys and a check or MO could end
up somewhere else...;)
