    I've recently returned to these forums from an extended absence. I like the new look and I'm getting used to finding my way around the new format....except....
    as a Lifetime Supporting member, I am finding areas that I used to be privy to that I can no longer access. I understand that some data was lost in the change-over....very disappointing. And, it appears that we are not allowed to add new threads of data to hopefully replace some of what was lost.

    I'm hoping that the Admin. is working to remedy some of these issues as they come to light.

    If any mods are reading. I would like them to answer this post and let me know IF someone is working to correct these faults....especially in the Supporting Member Forums down at the bottom of the list.

    i second Mr. McCool's suggestion. contact one of the Moderators or Administrators for help. it could be a slight glitch in the data transfer in the changeover to the new forum system.

    The "Bunker" appears to be working now, but still no joy at the Tail Trail.

    String was the primary contributor and almost everyone's favorite member. Then one day he just vanished. We would sure love for somebody to pick up his torch and carry on. :hint:

    I was never very interested in them much either. I came of age in Vegas. Figured out that the 24-hour gyms, were a target rich environment at about 0200, when the girl dancers from the strip would show up and work out for an hour or two after work.

    So far as pictures: An old guy I worked with once said, “A wise man doesn’t warm himself before the picture of a fire.”

    i went to a few gentleman's clubs a few times many years ago. i found there were much better ways to spend my money. i'd rather spend my money on guns and ammo instead. more satisfying and less drama!

    We're discussing whether the tail trail should remain or not. It's a dead section.

    I vote to get rid of it. This is primarily a gun forum, and family oriented.

    There are plenty of girly pix all over the internet for those who are interested.
