    Well, since PU broke the ice, I guess I can step up, also.

    Welcome, Grandpa Shooter. I've been here long enough to say that there are VERY few sites as friendly and all-encompassing as this one.

    It's very hard to add much to what has already been said. This is THE best forum that I have ever been part of.

    I did get my hand slapped right after I first joined up for using that online gun auction's name. I used it a couple of times and it was always ******** out and I did not understand why so I used it by s e p a r a t i n g the letters and it was bypassing the censor thing. After my hand was slapped, it was explained to me why it was slapped so that I never did it again.

    AND, do you know of any other internet forums that get together and have cookouts and so forth. There is a Texas get-together and a Georgia get-together every year that I know of, maybe others. Have you ever heard of a forum that have some fabulous giveaways? I THINK NOT!!

    Thanks for the info folks! I am a little leery of mods ever since they figured out I do know what I am talking about and the Grandpa part of it doesn't mean over the hill just yet. I am glad to read that you folks talk up this place. I think I will hang around for awhile

    I, myself, have had posts deleted. Not unfairly, however - I had said things that could be taken as inflammatory, or insensitive of other peoples' values, and I think they were well within the limits of propriety in removing what I'd said.

    Welcome to TFF, GS! The mods here are actually very fond of knowledgeable members. Everyone is a specialist at something, and firearms are not my specialty. They are a hobby-level interest for me, which means there is a ton that I don't know.

    So I come on here to share what I do know, share my opinions (which I have a lot more of than knowledge ;):D), ask a lot of questions, and enjoy the company. I don't feel challenged by members who know more than I do; if we didn't have them, this place would be seriously lacking.

    Welcome, Grandpa Shooter from NE Pennsylvania. I will just nod to what has already been said here. Most of all, not matter how much people may disagree here EVRYONE is respectful of EVERYONE else. I believe that is what clicks here in addition to the veritable wealth of knowledge the members here have.

    Grandpa, welcome to TFF. I hope you will stick around and find out for yourself what type of place this is and what our mods are like. I think you will like it. I can say that my fellow mods are some of the best people you would ever want to meet. Im not sure how I ended up being part of such an elite crew, but they continue to allow it (well so far). So, pull up a chair and stay a while.

    Pretty good site. The MODs on F.F. are just fine, some sites the MODs just drive people away; you won't see that here.

    From time to time, you'll see a few people talking like immature 13 year olds with their version of comedy, but you see that on other sites too; less on this site. I just avoid those type threads, time is better spent on other threads.

    What I really like about F.F. is all the information & help I get from members concerning guns, ammo , and reloading. Real wealth of information from long time shooters. You'll find specific caliber forums that have more info but FF is a great general gun owners forum. Pretty good bunch, enjoy the forum.

    Welcome youngster, if you don't get a talking to once in awhile you aren't trying hard enough. Now how would I know that? :D


    Here is an example, the good Captain misspelled tolerated but he isn't going to be whacked or demoted. He does have to do the dishes for the next 3 days though. :p
