    I frequent different gun forums associated with firearms that I'm interested in, such as the Marlin forum, Ruger forum, CZ forum, etc.

    As far as other gun boards, I spend time on one that's pretty small that's geared to older guys. We've all be on there for a long time. It's very laid back and the guys really know their stuff. I also frequent a few survival/prep forums.

    I was on other forums. Dint stay long. Like you said a bunch of cry babies. You could not joke around without getting reported. In noticed something about dedicated forums. That's just what they are dedicated. If your on say glock forum and you ask about a sig 226. Most of what you are going to here is "glock or nothing", "why do you won't a sig?", just stupid stuff like that. There are very few that know anything outside of what the forum is dedicated to.

    Okay, like C3 said, there are no other gun forums. I occasionally get PM's complaining about how this forum is run and how "unfair" this place is. All I could say is check out a few other gun forums. This is a very nice, very friendly, very well run forum full of many members that go out of their way to help one another and to guide and answer questions. I also tell those that come to me complaining, any time you get 45,800 people together in one spot, there will be ones you don't like and can't get along with.

    You don't know. It is illegal to have an opinion.

    I had the same thing happen to me.

    Plus it seams FTF is ware the more knowledgable people are. I have seen questions asked on other sights that are general knowledge here and it was like nobody knew the answer. I felt like a brain sergeant who got a degree in rocket science for something to do over there.

    One guy asked what it takes to start reloading. After 2 days and 6 bumps I pointed him in the right direction. I was the only one to post. It's not like that here. With in 10 min depending on what time it is. You will have multiple knowledgable people giving you advice and showing you ware to start.

    I used to be a supporting member of another gun forum a few years ago. They where kind of weenie like so I wont mention their name. But they where a handgun forum (dot net :p). THey got to be really anal about people using the "Z" woprd. To the point that they started banning people. The straw for me wa shortly after than banfest a couple guys where bumped to board mod and all of a sudden no one knew a thing about guns but these two. So you had to only love Glocks and Kimber target model 1911's for carry.:rolleyes:

    I did post in the S&W forum a little but I simply got board and moved on. The peopel where OK though.

    In the passed 8 years , I've try-id many gun forums and found being an "out-sider' , was not accepted easily if at all.
    this has become my place , the place where I feel most at home.
    Thank you for letting me be a part of this , my favorite place. :)
