Well, I guess this makes 310,001.  ;D ;D ;D

I noticed the total forum post count was at a nice round number so I figured I'd fix that.  8)  ;D

Also noticed there were 162 users on the forum so we're still getting traffic, even if many are lurkers just reading posts (be better if they were members but still better than nothing). I also noticed (if accurate) that there were 1756 online on 20 JAN 2020, so the potential for this forum to pick up is there if folks would get a mind to use it.
Forums like this are not "instant" like the book of face, but the benefit of this place is the lack of censorship levels. While we do ask for a modicum of restraint, decency and civility, you pretty much have free reign of thought and expression here that you might not have on other forums.

Looks like the herd has been culled again because the total member number went down, which happens from time to time.

Anyway, I'm glad the members that still participate are still here and hope more would join in.

Maybe we can get enough folks going again to have more "gun related" posts....especially since FB is so down on guns and 2A rights.
More people than ever are buying guns and that is good.
Maybe some will find this place.

We are cleaning up the forum before we move it and the work is not yet done. So the number of post will go down as well.

We did purge a lot of members with 0 posts.

Yep, I figured so.... and it makes good sense to do so. There were many that used to sign up when you guys were doing the giveaways and they never returned to post anything.


Thanks for the work you put in, Marshal.

I guess I would count as one of those semi- "lurkers". But rest assured I read the posts at least 5 times a week.

I see all the non-members hanging out.  I see members that check-in, read, and leave, but who is it that always shows up "hidden"?

I had to check, and it looks like that would be me. Oops! :-[ I didn't have the box checked off to show my online status. I must have thought you check the box to not show your status and changed it one of the times I changed something in my profile.
