I signed on in July, 2002. That was just after moving back to the SF bay area from the great state of Texas...and just prior to moving to the greater state of Idaho.

If you go to your user profile, in the URL at the end of it, it will say "u=274005". Thats your user id number. The number I posted was yours.

TKM is 3143. I am 196427.

Well it was more luck than anything. I think there was a great reset or something and I just happened to check in and re-register right after things went live again.

I’m under my own URL and it says u=1 so maybe it’s not accurate.

It may. The original site was created in 2002, and was started/managed by Ramon. In 2005, the database had to be recreated, and users were manually moved; that's why many people who were there in 2002 look like they have a creation date of 2005. I think it was transferred from Ramon to Paul somewhere around early 2006 (I could be wrong by a few months).

I'm not sure the word "sold" is really applicable.

Ramon started Calguns. I don't think he made any money off it, I don't remember any ads on it. It remained small and not very busy, until the OLL explosion of late 2005. Then suddenly traffic increased massively. There was also a serious legal threat, as the state of California and the head of the Firearms Division of the DoJ (Hi Alison!) were threatening to shut everything related to OLLs down; this is where the "2 weeks" joke comes from. The stress was just too much for Ramon, he hadn't signed up for that kind of stuff, and he handed the discussion forum over to someone else.
