Default why have there been so many intrusive gun related threads created lately?

how many guns do you own?
how many pistols have you bought?
where in your house do you keep your guns?
Do you have any hidden wall safes? what did you use to cover them? can you post pictures?
http://calguns.net/calgunforum/showt...php?p=16324974
whats next?
"what is your work/school schedule?"
"What is your address and safe combo?"

are we being watched by an agency with multiple cgn accounts?

all this information is for me to know and you to never find out!

Not sure but I haven't posted in any of them. Some things I just don't care to divulge.

I believe the second post on Calguns was cgwahl asking GeekGirl where she kept her bedside piece.

People like to brag and one up each other.

But....

Why anyone would brag about how many guns or how much ammo they own is foolish. Same thing with how much survival stuff you have, precious metals, cash, jewelery, secret hideout, etc.

Good thing I don't own any of that stuff. I have 911 and mercenary Jedi ninja assassins to protect me.

People actually buy guns?!?

Seriously tho, I just steer clear of those threads altogether. It blows my mind the detailed info people are willing to cough up online.

I agree you should keep most of that stuff private.


Now, can I have your credit card number and its expiration date...

Silly Rabbit NSA already knows what you have. You can't wear the tinfoil in the shower !

The wives/GF threads have been done many times. Here's the biggest one I've seen.

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...&highlight=Hot

OP. You want to hang out? I noticed you don't list a location. How are you going to make new pals without a location. Post up your address so a few of us can come hang out.

Seriously, I don't participate in those threads.

If I had a lot of stuff I wouldn't advertise, but having 5 guns that span handguns, rifles, and a shotgun is a far cry from anything ANY organization should ever care about. I'll talk about my stuff all day, but those of you with $50,000+ in guns are smart to keep your stuff private.

you guys, you may be doing it all wrong.
if you think it's someone trying to fish for information...

give him just that lots of great information about nothing true.


guns you own = you own two air airsoft pistol but you hope to get a pellet rifle soon.


where in the house do you keep them. = I bury them under my pitbull & Chihuahua mixed dog house. I saw it in a movie!
his name is "Attack" so if you just climb over the fence and keep yelling "Attack!" everything will work out great for you.

I agree this information isn't something to be posting about. However, if you have a concern with LEO fishing on CGN, I feel pretty safe. I know the OP will be way high the raid list based purely on his signature.

I'm surprised he's still allowed to post. Major waste of bandwidth.

Worst I've seen is the bozo who posted how much he paid for his kids' car and truck. Tacky, tacky, tacky.

These types of posts come around every year or two.

Starts with a noob asking how many and that tees up the rest which gets sillier
And sillier until the Mods sweep in in a thread delete frenzy.

I understand why some shall we say "inappropriate" questions are asked. When I was new to emergency preparedness and new to firearms I asked a lot of questions like "How much ammo do you keep per gun" "How many guns would be a good minimum collection" "Where do you keep your safe" etc....

I just wanted info from the more experienced people, basically looking for advice.

I don't answer specific questions about my personal business either, but if I can give an answer that is beneficial, I will.

Maybe people want to know if what they are doing is the same as everyone else?

If nobody shared anything or asked repeat questions then how much do you think Calguns would thrive? I come here everyday to see something new not something that was posted four years ago.

Funny extra threads in response to this one, but no, let's stop piling on.

We did a "What is your safe combo" a couple years ago. Surprising how many answered.

Bingo

Also, there is usually a correlation between the age and/or post count of those who start such threads.
