WE NEED A NEW FORUM/TOPIC/CATAGORY

We need one that allows us to share where we shoot

Like Bee canyon- Never heard of it.

There are thousands of little areas out there that we go to shoot that are NOT pay ranges. WHERE ARE THEY?

For instance, I live in Bakersfield, I go to the old/abandoned cement batchplant/rock quarry/concrete dump/dump. It is about a mile past the Buttonwillow airport. Nice relatively quiet place to shoot. Lots of people go there. Lots of people dump there too. Like entire households of stuff sometimes. (kinda sad) I asked another member if he ever went there, he said he didn't even know Buttonwillow had an airport.

Wee need a spot to tell other Calgunners where we go to shoot. Then, we need to haul off a little bit more than we haul in. Yea, that would be nice.

What do YOU think?

Is it safe there? Would be funny if you show up with a $2K+ firearm and then get robbed...

Do you just allow yourself to get robbed?

2k$ firearm on yourself and what you freeze in fear if you see criminals?

I think you should start a new thread in General Gun Discussions

Could we get a sticky in "Off Topic" for "Rainbow Bridge" to allow everyone to pay respect to their companions that have gone on?

Can a moderator fix the "How to embed a pic" thread? I like to test posting a pic in that thread to make sure all is well with posting pictures before I actually post a picture from my saved pictures on my pc or iPhone. Right now, when I "preview post", I get a message that says the thread is over 160 days old and I am unable to post in the thread...

Thanks...

FAQ - that announcement has a checkbox at the bottom, roughly 'I know this thread is old, but I want to post anyway' - check that and the software will allow you to post.

ETA - that kind of question has a new home - http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/f...play.php?f=451

Not sure if has been suggested but how about creating two classified sections for Private long guns and handguns. One for So. Cal and one for Nor. Cal so postings aren't as congested, and one can view specific listings for their area.

Thanks!

Exclamation Get rid of the Ladies Forum!

Why does the Ladies Forum exist? Its more of a rhetorical question than anything else but hear me out:

"Ladies/Women" subs exist on many forums and the justification are many but the part of the truth no one wants to talk about is that whenever a woman (not a man who thinks they are a woman, a man who altered themselves to be a woman or a man who's brain swaps personalities depending on the day and time) posts out come the honking handies who see opportunity to show the woman how much they know and try to impress in the hopes they'll get lucky. Please, let's not say that isn't one big reason because anyone who's been around more than 12 years in time knows it. A woman posts and it's fresh meat time.

You see it at the range and in gun stores too. A woman standing in line and out comes the vultures, only to help of course. It isn't just one, there is a line, we all know it and only the good ol boys won't admit it.

Calguns is basically a men only club and that approach is one reason why 2/A Right fights rarely go our way. If there were only some percentages close to the percentages of men voting not just to overturn gun control laws but instead vote to elect pro-2/A representatives we'd be winning instead of always losing and then trying to claw back some small portion of what we lost.

Right now there are a lot of eye-rolls but I'd say most of those are part of the "we know what we're doing" crowd who watch the eroding of gun rights and see it as the status quo. A lot of them are part of the stacked deep and tall group who really don't care too much if anyone else ever gets anything, they have enough so they give lip service but no longer have any skin in the game.

So back to the Ladies Forum. What could there possible be getting discussed that needs to be isolated from everyone else - personal hygine issues because news flash, men have no problem discussing theirs.

What we have here is a forum devoid of women in any significant number contributing to the greater forum, they are hidden away, cloistered if you will and from what? Men? Is that what we all claim to be about, rights and all that but can't manage to contain ourselves enough so that woman feel open enough to post and even have large voices?

There is no way gun rights goes anywhere in the positive without women voting and supporting it and other than promoting the very few women as part of a dog hunt where are they all?

Before I gave up YouGottubed the women I saw in anything guns rights or guns related were the T&A type of exposure designed to get clicks. Oh yeah, there is that one LD shooter but again the hook isn't how good she shoots its how good she looks. The same for Kristen Joy something. It's all about tight clothes, big blinking eyes and a catch me if you can expression. It's true. Talented they may well be but that is lost because someone else just uses it as fodder for clicks.

Head to the range and see what happens when a woman alone goes there to shoot. It's like watching hunting dogs at a rabbit farm.

If we can't elevate ourselves to accept women as having the same interest and the need to benefit from the same rights (as in 2/A rights) and actively seek them out all this tough talk about "muh guns" isn't going anywhere and to that point I say look at the track record of efforts.

When was the last time someone actually spoke on this forum as a woman/a mother/a grandmother/a daughter/a niece etc openly? Don't cherry pick a few threads or posts or fall back on that tired old cliche that men are more attracted to guns than woman because that is utter BS

What gun should I get my wife, my wife think I have only 3 guns and all that, posted or said with pride except that too is nonsense and only serves to discredit women who might otherwise participate and even contribute time, money and effort into securing the rights we still have and help to get back those we've lost.

I know that right now there is a pretty good-sized group who read any of this and think it's crap but the joke is on you and us because you think fighting a battle and war to retain and strengthen 2/A rights can be won with just the BBQ boys saying so.

If we don't change things to include everyone (as in women and men, men and women) this Hooray 2/A isn't going anywhere. This isn't about men securing some right and then thumping on their chests to tell women they benefit from the effort, it has to be about men and women/Women and Men securing those rights together.

We aren't going to get anywhere, and in California there is enough proof, by practically isolating women from the fight as if they can't. All across the country where are the most successful fights regarding education and how kids are being treated and indoctrinated in them? Efforts by Moms. Where are Mom's practically non-existent in the fight? The 2/A. Yeah I know, they are some and when one speaks out it's made out to be some miracle and look at that moment, but it should be so routine there is a unified front.

So get rid of the Ladies forum, guns, gun rights and the 2/A aren't different for men and women they are the same. That we (as in men) can't see it speaks to small thinking. Who goes into a rights battle with half of their team relegated to some isolation? The liberals don't do it and that is why they get enough votes to do things gun owners can't.

Lets get over this old mantra that women aren't into guns, so called gun culture and all that, its BS. Its something created out of cloth to protect egos that spill out like a warm beer opened on a hot Agust day.

A divided team always loses, always. A divided team makes half of that team seem second class. Second is the same as losing.

So dump the Ladies Forum and welcome them into the general forum where they have as much stake as anyone else. That means not thinking because a woman asks for help that it's an invitation to hit on them. They have as much at stake as everyone else but it's 100% guaranteed that without them all those 2/A rights will one day be just a memory.

When women talk about guns and the 2nd/A it shouldn't be novel because they are women, it should be novel because they have something to say about it as part of a team because they might own a gun, might compete, might train and have the same interests if not exclusive to guns but the rights that we're supposed to have.

Shared Shots: I agree with you completely, and you have made your case very, very well. Note: I'm a father with a grown daughter (and two sons); daughter purchased her first centerfire handgun a couple years back, on her own (and she lives in a relatively free State, Utah). She asked for my advice first, and then did her own shopping and made her own choice.

I think there might be some sort of unspoken assumption here that women should have their own forum based on "women's rights", anti-discrimination, or some version thereof. But aren't we discriminating by separating and segregating women?

From the subforum intro:

Ladies Forum
A place for our female Calgunners to discuss, share and interact without the 'excess attention' sometimes found in online forums.

There is an additional rule about courtesy to minimize the leg humpers.


There are a couple well known lady CGers that I can think of off the top; BadKitty and Widdle.

There were a couple ladies that seem to have moved on that were active in helping less experienced ladies learn the ropes such as female specific training and gear.
Both of those avoided OT like the plague.

Just one person's opinion here.

I think your intentions and reasoning are well and fine. The reality is that women get enough unwanted attention on this site when they make post to make a significant number of them not want to participate.

The required resources to monitor and remedy that aren't available.

calguns' Off Topic is a high school locker room free-for-all in which an adult or two happens to drop in.

It is hardly a place for Ladies.

The Ladies Forum is a sacred place. I don't even LOOK in there, although once about five years ago I posted a question regarding my wife, there.

Ladies can handle men in RL and they can handle us online. Trying to segregate an area or "protect" ladies is no different than the line of guys waiting to "help" a lady in a store. It's unconsciously condescending. Think about going to play basketball and your friends telling the other team "take it easy on him because he's short". You want someone "looking out for you" or do you just want to play?

This situation is the same if you are talking about car forums, video game forums, home brewing forums and whatever. Ladies don't really care to kick it on the forums like guys do especially in an activity that is engaged in by mostly males. Forums are just one more way to compete and we seem to like that a lot more than they do.

There isn't anything you can do about it. It is how it is. The very best thing you can do is treat anyone you think of as a lady just like you would a guy. That's the only "real" action that makes any difference but don't expect it to change the world.

The correct question is do the women on CalGuns want their own forum or not? That isn't something we men can or should decide for them.

Why not post a poll in the Lady's Forum and see what the feedback is both in content and quantity? Then you'd know how they feel about their own forum but also how many feel that way.

I always thought the Lady's Forum was not a form of segregation or Safe Place, but rather a place where the poster can direct their question towards a specific audience, very similar to the LEO, FFL, CCW forums. We don't have just one forum for all the threads because we are soliciting responses that are relevant to our situation.

Now it's very possible that there isn't enough activity on that thread to warrant it being separate. That would be a question for the Mods to look at that traffic. I'm not up in arms because there is a Young Calgunners forum; it sounds like a great idea for kid related questions. Why would the Lady's Forum be any different?

Can I interject here ... please.

Ladies Forum is the Ladies Forum - It's a place where they CLEARLY do not want to be bothered by men. So ... don't bother them, they want to be left alone by mansplaining leg humpers. So ... so be it.

They get enough infiltration from transsexual athletes whoopin' the livin' tar out of them in weightlifting, swimming, track & field - and they wanna come on here and have their own forum without male infiltration - I say good.

Does it matter if the Ladies Forum doesn't get much use? - no it doesn't. It's here if they need it.

Okay okay - Sounds great and should work well and it'll be a lot of information yada yada yada ...,

But ... men will be men and boys will be boys. What you are suggesting, a lot of good reasons and sounds very sensible. But ... the way the rules are here - there are A LOT of CGN members going to get banned because they will not be biologically able to contain themselves. It will be a leg hump city. So ... go ahead. It will be fun, like the old days CGNers getting banned everywhere!

It's sad that everyone can't just act like adults. I don't think biology has anything to do with being able to contain themselves. Perhaps you are just being generous, but if one member can't treat another with respect, then maybe they shouldn't be members. The offender's attitude can cast a long shadow.

This is something that I've noticed through out the forums, especially in regards to newbs. Often times, it seems like members are more interested in bashing newbs down than assisting their advancement. This has certainly affected my enthusiasm for the forum. It's a great resource, but sometimes you have to dig through so much BS and sword measuring.

As a newer member, I can't speak to how things were, maybe it's better?

Ya - I am in your corner. I get it.

These kids (millennials) these days ... in fact any generation old, young ... it's a matter of respect. And these people just don't have respect anymore. It is NOT going to happen ... it's a fact.

So ..., shut down the lady's forum - send the ladies into OT and let the games begin.
Like I said ... it's been a long time since we had any epic threads around here.
Get it done - shut down lady's forum and let the children play. I'm sure the MODS will love it

I think the marketplace would be better if it was divided by location instead of type of firearm for sale. PPTs need to be face to face anyway, I end up just searching for cities near me to see what's around.

ZJ, I'm glad you read it in the manner of which was intended. Rereading what I wrote, I probably left it a little too easy to be misread.

We can wait for someone else to do something, of we can be the change that we want to see. So what's your (aimed at everyone, not ZJ specifically) plan? Mine is to continue to treat people with respect, especially those I disagree with. And to try and keep threads I participate in on task. Being the 24th person to tell someone they know nothing and they need to get training isn't nearly as effective as sending a link for a quality instructor or recommending a great training you attended.

Not everyone can keep a lid on bad behavior.

As for "my" plan - I have no plan. There is no plan. This is just CGN - It is a Firearms Forum with an Off Topic lounge.

This is not all serious facts figures do this don't do that stand in line formation do and act like we say! - People rebel against stuff like that. And besides ... it's not always cruel or disrespectful in having fun - some people, including women - they are people too ... some people don't know how to joke around, sarcasm is an acquired taste and we have a lot of sarcasm floating around in here. People take things wrong and get all bent for no reason. Then arguments ... then name calling, then banning.

I would love it if women are on ALL the CGN forums including OT. Everybody can learn and teach - and have fun too. But it's proven that in CGN - men and women, or in some cases ... boys and girls don't know how to get along. They just don't.

I would like it, Kestryll would like it, the MODS would like it, you, me ... would be great if CGN was a firearms learning center playground utopia. But, it's not. It's just CGN - It is a Firearms Forum with an Off Topic lounge.

We not going to come on here and fix the world of perceived sexist behavior because somebody got they feelings hurt.

I want to give a shout out, like Garv did, to Bad Kitty and Whiddle - these two CGN'ers ... hey, they can handle a rattlesnake like a pro and so they can handle any CGN'er Rattlesnake as well - these two ladies got it it going on.

If insanity can be defined as doing something over and over but expecting a different result (or something like that) then insanity pretty much covers it since what has gotten better when it comes to gun rights (not talking about the so called free states, this is California)?

Its really funny almost, the very guys who would stand up and demand satisfaction, apologies and all that were someone to impugn their mother, sister, wife, daughter are some of the same ones who see nothing of it to do it to the mother, sister, wife or daughter of someone else.

We can either realize that the closed doors subset of gun owners who are all knowing and all doing when it comes to broadening the general public to 2/a Right and gun ownership simply haven't worked for decades and continue not to work and do something different or leave it as is and just watch as futile actions become nothing more than an anecdote on 2/A rights in this state.

It's a numbers game and when half of the numbers are marginalized because some can't think past what they've stacked deep then why bother because the slide is now so steep that whatever we thought was bad isn't even close to what comes along in the next few years.

When someone who is not, compares themselves to, invokes the name of, and identifies as a rape victim in defense of the indefensible, they diminish all rape victims and also relegate themselves to irrelevance.

I'm sure you can't begin to understand what you said, trying to be cute instead, but enjoy your irrelevance; however, you made my previous points far better than I ever could.

What Calguns really needs is not just a Ladies forum, but a Ladies Off-topic forum...

...ya know, where they post about stuff like tips on how to make sandwiches, meatloaf recipes, getting laundry whites their whitest, leads on the best coupons for groceries, and sharing pics from their secret lingerie pillow-fight parties.

I can see the legitimate debate about a forum for specific audience has devolved into infantile gotcha games and mocking. If only we could look past ourselves and focus on the community, then we might be able to foster something positive for everybody. But we can't, and so we get what we have.

And my enthusiasm continues to wane. I thought this would be place where adults would act like adults, but it appears I hopes were optimistic.

I know, right? We don't even have a forum dedicated for a place where Big Pimping's ladies can post bikini pics.

Just can't get anyone around here to get on board with making Calguns, and thus the world, a better place.

Be the change you want to see in Calguns... Mahatma Gunguy.

...and frankly, we need more Big Pimping's ladies pics.

"log in" seems to be iffty/50 and have a mind of its own.

never seen of various automotive, boating, etc forums I use that seem to run similar software service.

Sometimes I'll be logged out while using, then try to log back in and briefly flashes "thx for logging in" then goes to "you ain't logged in".

I can't remember if hours or days later something logs me back in, so I'm logged in when back at that PC.

Not all transfers have to be FTF. Some are on roster and can be shipped.

This might be repetitive because I didn't read through this entire thread, but the biggest change I'd like to see is a simple method of uploading a normal sized photo. Yes, I realize that probably would require a larger server or other black box. So go ahead and spend the money for that, CalGuns.

That exists.

Have the photo on your machine; size it as you like.

Above your text box is a 'paper clip' icon. Click that, and you get a popup.

Top is 'upload a file from your computer'; file size limits are

Code:
 
Filetype 	Max Filesize 	Max Width 	Max Height
bmp 	19.5 KB 	620 	280
doc 	127.0 KB 	- 	-
docx 	4.00 MB 	- 	-
gif 	19.5 KB 	620 	280
jpe 	19.5 KB 	620 	280
jpeg 	19.5 KB 	620 	280
jpg 	97.7 KB 	- 	-
pdf 	5.00 MB 	- 	-
png 	19.5 KB 	620 	280
psd 	19.5 KB 	- 	-
txt 	127.0 KB 	- 	-
xls 	4.00 MB 	- 	-
xlsx 	4.00 MB 	- 	-
zip 	97.7 KB 	- 	-
If you don't find those convenient, find a way to host the picture you want on some other server - presuming that server allows it, inserting the URL of the picture between <IMG]URL HERE[/IMG> tags in your post gets that picture to display.

That's in the other thread here, http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=830550

Thanks, Librarian. I've used that process, but those are relatively small sizes when they show up in a post here on CalGuns. If I choose a large size on my Mac to import, the CalGuns downsizes it. I think we need a way to allow somewhat larger file sizes to be uploaded.

Possibly 1 mod dedicated to marketplace?

Just for the marketplace threads, if there isn't one.

Instead of reacting to red triangles and reports, but proactively acting on new users hanging out in the WTBs.
