Thanks for all of the well thought out and courteous replies gents. I genuinely appreciate the feedback.
I have not been at this long enough to know all of the in's and outs, so like I mentioned, I am not too proud to reach out and ask.
We are all on the same team here, and should all have a common goal, which in my opinion is to get as many new people interested in shooting sports, and their own self defense as we can. Some of us may compete with each other for sales, but that is ok. The main direction (for me at least), is to turn "anti's" into "pro's". Then and only then, will we start to turn the tide in this horribly regulated state.
