    After six and a half years this is my 500th post!!! I am now a Senior member!

    I have enjoyed the conversation here greatly! We have debated the great and not so great issues of the day.

    People like us helped defeat the flawed immigration bill by writing our U.S. congress members and senators, and letting them know how strongly the average American was against those bills.

    I have learned a lot from the members here, and hope I have shared a small amount of knowledge in return.

    I am amazed by how civil the conversation is here 98% of the time. We may disagree, but that is never an excuse for rudeness. I also go on the History Channel World War II forum. That forum is plagued by "flamers". We should all thank the administrators of this site for protecting the integrity of the FIREARMSFORUM!

    One thing I did not know until recently is you can report an inappropriate post by clicking on the exclamation sign inside the triangle at the left side bottom of a post. This will prompt you to fill out a report that is sent to the administrators. I have only done this on two posts that used offensive language. I am pretty thick skinned, but this is a site that I would not be embarrassed to have my kids see, and I would like to keep it that way. Lately we have also had some ads posted on the site by spammers, again you can report these by clicking on the exclamation sign.

    Thank you all for sharing with me, I hope I have given a little back!
