As have I. Frankly, I'm getting kind of pissed. It's worse than someone coming into your house with muddy shoes on and propping their feet on the table.

I have noticed a few regular offenders. Some of them also have very good input at other times. I usually just avoid the confrontation.

In the words of Rodney King..........

Yes, we are going to get asked the same question a lot of times by a lot of people- afraid that is the nature of the beast. How many times will I be asked about firing slugs out of a modified barrel, and what can't I rechamber my Jennings to .22 magnum?

Those questions are important to somebody. No reason to get my panties in a twist over someone asking. As far as things to worry about- my blood glucose meter provides enough of that these days.

I really do enjoy the "When was..." and "Where was...." and "Where can I find a ....." sort of thing. Also enjoy the folks that contribute info I may not have had, or a source of good info in a particular field. Can do just fine without the folks that tell me I will have to list my guns on my tax return, and primers will have a deactivating time limit.

Everybody needs to remember- it's only the internet. It does not leave bruises. Next year, few people will remember. You like one thing, I like another. That is why there is McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell- bourbon, scotch, Bud and Yuengling. Just because it is not my flavor does not mean it's bad.

I'm sorry if I've bothered anyone but that's the point of forums, for students or those less savvy to ask questions, while those who are more advanced sometimes answer them or create stickies with a thorough write up, firearms are not my forte...yet. I've been around them but just within the last few years my interest has re-sparked. I'm a Computer Tech who's very well versed with *Unix servers, if someone here asked a question about setting up a dual boot mac book or why stupid Citrix log in isn't authenticating, this is something I've repeated 1,000 times but it's my trade, think about the auto mechanic who's asked "When you turn over the key, do you hear the fuel pump kick in?" 1,000 times, if he doesn't want to explain how a fuel pump works on the internet then I'd suggest he not visit fordforums.org support section too much.

I agree, I always want to try to help people out. It just seems like there have been a whole of people arguing semantics about things that really insignificant or philosophical questions that are borderline absurd. I mean is the average person really going to ever going to wear out a GP100 or S&W 686? Heck no! So what does it matter which one is "heftier"? Either will likely last our entire life, so in the big scheme of things what does it really matter? Or threads like whether you would trust your life to a 1911 or not. Threads like those are the ones I was referring to. I enjoy helping people learn more about their guns and answer questions, but sometimes it just gets to be a little too much.
