    You see a bunch of us running around with SUPPORTING MEMBER under our screen names.

    What is it? Well being a supporting member of Firearms talk is helping the owner Notdku out with the expenses of keeping the servers going and the bandwidth flowing.

    What do I get out of it? Well you get access to 2 forums that are just for Supporting members. One of which is NSFW at all. The other is just a place that is a little more private for use to talk about things we don't want out on the open board. We talk about family and many other things. You also get to join a brotherhood of men and women who are some of the greatest people I have never meet. 2 supporting members when and tried to organize a nation wide meet and great for the supporting members. We do many good things. We have helped a few supporting members when time hit a rough patch for them. We donated to a wonderful chairity that helped soldiers returning from war with gift baskets of useful items. I think we raised $1500 for that one.

    You get access to a web site called promotive. This is a place that gives us CRAZY discounts on items outdoor lovers use all the time. From Wool socks to Kershaw knives and SOG knives to mt bike parts to surf board and sunglasses hunting cloths bows, bow sights, and much much more.

    Think about it everyone here blows $15 on stupid stuff every payday. Why not take $15 and put it towards the best firearms board on the web?

    I've heard about the camaraderie with the other supporting members. Heck, I feel like I already know all you guys. I've laughed along with you guys, you just didn't know it :D

    Those great Promotive discounts have resulted in the UPS man being on a first name basis around here! ;)

    It sounds like a great place to hang out on the interwebz!

    So how does that DONATE function work on my profile again???

    oh hell, wait, can Jack see this?

    It's $15 well spent. I have made a number of good friends around here and learned far more then $15 could ever buy.

    Go for it, being a supporting member will give back much more enjoyment than that last case of $15 lite beer did. :D

    Are the supporting members as unfriendly in the other forum?

    I'm on my second year of being a SM. And never thought twice about re-upping.
    I've personally met 4 other SM's already (all top notch folks)
    I have saved more money from the few things I have purchased from ProMotive, that really my membership was free:)

    Hello RugerLover. What other Forum are you speaking of?

    You will get corrected when you are wrong here. But 99.9% of the time it will be with respect.

    Welcome to the board.

    Why yes, yes they are just as unfriendly. We'd love for you to stay around and be unfriendly with us...oh wait, did you say UN-friendly? ;)

    You can pay a visit to our Introductory thread and introduce yourself to the forum and tell us a little bit about yourself.

    Kick off your shoes and stay awhile :D

    This doesn't even touch on the Penguin and the Duck that visit Supporting members and takes them on adventures. The duck even brings a USPS Large flat rate box with him packed full of epic cool goodies.

    The other forum is the one where you said access to 2 forums. The unfriendly comes from reading around this forum and your avatar calling people a retard.

    If you want to hang out here, grow a thick skin. Several people here are pretty rough. Ignore those who irritate you or go elsewhere. Sorry to put it so baldly, but there it is. Life is not cuddly. We could wish it were, but the other hand would fill up faster.
