Your modesty and humble nature can be a real PITA sometimes ...

Step back, take a look, and be proud.


Thanks for making this place what it is.

Just one question: I just subscribed for a year now. If I want to change to lifetime, how will I do that without having a recurring yearly subscription from my first subscription?
Thanks and welcome! Just buy a Lifetime and cancel the yearly subscription in GUNPAL's My Subscriptions.

Easy decision! I've saved WAY more than $299 over the last year in the FS forums and have picked-up tons of great tips and tricks...

Excellent! I view this effort as a means to fight back at the slow chipping away of our constitutional rights, not just gun rights. But the intent of the opposition is to weaken all of them. Every means to push back on each one will add strength to the efforts to counter the opposition. Be this I mean, support Calguns, NRA, Heritage Foundation, and any thing you can afford to contribute to that represents a constitutional right. Although we love our guns, at this point in time, your ability to keep them in the future will depend on dollars and not bullets. And in the long run it is infinitely cheaper. Not since the Civil War has the foundation of our society been more at risk than it is now. Sorry for the rant.

Happy Easter, Kestryll-enjoy!

I've learned so much from this website all things related to firearms (and sometimes unrelated), appreciate all the help I've gotten directly and indirectly. Time to give back!

Thanks for putting this together Paul.

CGN is technically a *for profit* corporation, however it operates much like a non-profit (please note that donations to CGN are NOT tax deductible)

So far it hasn't but I'm not going to preclude that, I'd love to see Paul able to quit his day-job but he's fighting me . I think you'll like what you see.

Just sign up and then cancel the subscription in GP the next day. It won't renew if you cancel it.

too funny
had the same concerns after signing up, but will most likely become a yearly contributor
as this site has saved me money & made lots of new friends
the 29$ is a bargain if you consider how much $$$ you can save buying used nearly new equipment @ calgun prices


cheers
