i have to agree with Mason. as much useful information is floating around on the world wide web, there is just as much misinformation and outright lies out there as well. just like some here like to breed lies and misinformation, which is why some of us take great pains and care in trying to keep those to a minimum so that those new to guns or the shooting world are getting the truth and useful information they can use to make an informed decision.
even some of us who have been around guns and such for the better part of our lives, will challenge what is written here on this forum. just because somebody wrote in a post, doesn't mean anyone with any intelligence will accept it as gospel. there are always a few uppity idiots who get all butthurt if someone challenges their comments or opinions on things if asked for proof or evidence that supports them.
not matter how true or false something may be, it's still an opinion until it's supported by a credible source. IMO, those new to the sport or the ownership of a gun deserve to have the most factual information that we as responsible and ethical gun owners can provide them. there are those who have been into guns a long time who may be venturing into a different area of guns that are seeking knowledge. there are those who have lots of valuable knowledge that they are willing to share with others, just because they enjoy sharing that knowledge free of charge.
let me ask you a question then JD. if doing a Google search of the web is so easy to find and answer, (and it usually is as i do it myself) then why are you a member here at FTF? i mean if the answer to all of life's questions are just a few keystrokes away, why do you bother to keep coming back here on the forum?
