    Have you considered a lifetime membership in the forum. Say for $50-75. Onetime payment.

    I've brought it up several times in the past. It never went anywhere.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I know I would do it. It could even include a few more perks. Don't know what they would be though..

    The problem with Lifetime is FTF while being a great community brings in very little money. I can't run Google Adsense, there are no quality affiliate advertising and most other ad agencies won't touch firearm forums. So like other firearm sites I have to sell private banner space and Premium Memberships.

    I worry if I start doing Lifetime since Premium is fairly inexpensive people will just opt for that and 3-4 years down the line the site is huge, bandwidth/servers are costing a lot and the annual subscriptions have dried up.

    Can't ask for a more honest answer than that. Well done, sir. :)

    BOOOO!!!

    j/k :p - $15/yr is nothing. I bet everyone could collect that in discarded cans/bottles. ;)

    $50 only covers a little over 3 years of SM dues. For a life time I would think $200 or $250 would be more along the lines. I know I am not going anywhere anytime soon and I will for sure give up $250+ to this forum over time.

    I am just glad Not doesn't charge by the post. I would be bankrupt.
