Good Evening all...
I was just looking over the main forum page, who's online, members, all that info waaayyyyy down there at the bottom.
It blew me away that we had 900-odd folks on the forum on the 22nd of this month.
Not that I'm the most prolific poster, but I've been a member since March of 2003....But I remember the old days.....
IIRC we all tried to be online one time to reach something like 200 of us online at the same time...
We had all the good old mods and regulars, TallTLynn, BlackGun, ZigZag, Warpig...
Good thing we've still got a lot of the "old timers"(no offense guys!) still on the boards, SoMo, InPlanoTX, Armedandsafe, IBTruckin, Mithrandir, Smokin Guns....
I'm probably missing a bunch of folks, I guess I could go and look thru all those old posts...Memories....
I guess I'm just glad I ended up here as a Lifer, I've always had a high regard for my fellow members, and there couldn't be a nicer bunch, in my humble opinion.
Anyone else remember those old days?????
I am not an old timer here for sure. I have been stopping by and reading the Constitutional fourm for quite awhile now and am still amazed at the combined knowledge of everyone here.
This was the main reason that I finally decided to 'sign up'. I think that I'll not regret doing so. I like to trade words with 'like' minded people, it's great, this place is great, life in general is great!!!
My thanks to everyone here!!

I've only been here since November, but I will say this is the ONLY firearms forum I would care to be part of. The reason for that is simple: It's the people I've met here. People who are not only knowledgable about firearms, but more importantly, people willing to share that knowledge, and have a few laughs along the way.

I stumbled in here around 2001 or 2002 I think. Made the transition from ezboard and helped with the move. Sure do miss those old times a little. People come and go and the more people I meet here the more that this board comes alive. I miss our Friday nite meets in the chat room. Used to be a whole bunch of us going at one time. The lines used to go past you so fast, that if you didn't know how to type, you got lost! Made and met several people on this board and wish I could meet a lot more. Hopefully soon.

I also like that PS and X and Polish and JohnK3 have relit the military history forum candle. Gawd, it was dark in there for a long time. Super glad to have all these knowledgable people who can really churn up a super discussion without resorting to shouting and name calling. We have a lot of good people here and I have found a home. Thanks all!
Glad y'all came back Daddy! Missed our fun times in chat!
I'm up for some chat room! I can't promise I'll be on every nite, but I'll post in the general forum if I'm going to be in there.
Anyone alse interested in using the chat(again for you old-timers, or for the first time for you newer folks)
Hey admins, everything still work in the chat room, any new things we should know to log in?
Yep, chat still works. Just make a post in Gen Discussion when you go into the chat room, and hang out for a while to give folks a chance to discover that someone's there.
For those of you who haven't used our chat room before, you will need to register at www.ezboard.com , since that's where our chat room is hosted. After you've registered over there, log in to the ezboard site, then come back over here and click on our Chat link.
Let's see if we can get some lively chats going again! I'll even buy a round of drinks for everyone at the chat room bar!
