It's truly something special, I noticed more guys with a lot of expereince as well. I expect they are like I was when I found this site, kind of tired of the forums they had been visiting. This forum is like talking to people at the range, everyone has there favorite firearms, have varrying skill levels and opinions varry but everyone gets along and respects eachother. All the same if you do something stupid the mods are on it, much like a range master on the firing line.
I also noticed more international members, it's hard to keep a good forum from getting international attention.
Happy to be part of FTF
