    it is hard for some people to understand the relationship that can form through boards like ours, but you get to know someone for who they truly are ,and not judge one another by what we look like or the car we drive ,but who we truly are inside ,we type our thoughts onto the board reveling thoughts and some views we wouldn't talk about with others , we know when each other is feeling blue ,or feeling happy ,and the feelings are shared , i am amazed to this day how as a very small group in the world we share more than guns as a common bond ,but we are all different in many ways, putting faces to names this past week has made me view things different {in a positive way} ,the mental image i have developed in the past has changed ,i know see a real person behind the name

    I'm new over on this side. I usually post over on the Vietnam Memories Board. I came over here yesterday to post my condolences on behalf of Ron and I thought I would also take the advice of JD and try to get to know some of you through your posts. You seem like a great bunch (not surprising ) and after I read this particular post, I couldn’t help but reply.

    I agree with you a 100%. People here are themselves. There is no judgment. I think only part of it has to do with the fact that we are all on computers, but I think it also has to do with the fact that all the people here are genuine, honest and true to themselves and each other. I’ve learned a lot from everyone while posting here, I’ve laughed, cried, laughed some more, and I always feel right at home.

    I guess I just look forward to getting to know all of you over on this side….

    Winter

    Howdy, Winter11 -

    Glad to have you here. Gotta watch out for a few "Miscreants" here on the board - they'll lead you astray faster than you can say "Jack Daniels"! Won't mention any names, but their initials are: Kdubaz, Like-to-Shoot, Bob in StL (Crusty), Xracer, Bondai, The Real Fredneck, M. Opaliski, and especially, TLynn! There's a bunch more, but these are the most sneaky of the sneakiest.
    Keep below the ridgeline!

    Hi Winter11, welcome aboard.

    Postal, you are right, putting a face takes those feelings one step deeper. I have cousins that I ahve never met or talked to, and I have completely different(stronger) thoughts about our board members that I do relatives. with some relatives it get a face, but nothing else. Nothing to basis a friendship on.

    Having what we have here is truely grand, and being able to see people puts it over the top.

    Whoa.....I saw ruffitt's colors for Winter and got green with envy..well actually I am sorta green kyptonite right now..totally *radiating* (Homer told me I was)...My name is Pari, I live in Montana and I too am here at the gentle prodding of our leader..JD. Yes.. I grew up hunting..but have more humerous stories of my great shots to tell, than "Bawanna" ones.

    I have read some of your posts..great group..

    I too am on the VMBB..been there since last June 2000...If you want some fun entertainment, you should stop by and visit our "Women in Combat" series..a real kick a roo...or just drop in any ole' time..we will drop in over here too, since we're all neighbors and such..

    Well I see Pari and Winter has been before me and cleared the path, so I will bring up the rear.

    I would like to say hello to all of you, my name is Hope and I hail from the Vietnam Mem. Board.
    I am a female Vietnam Vet and decided to get over here and see how the other half of us is doing.

    Have looked and taken a peek at your board and find it a very interesting and knowledegable place to
    come and visit. I have been around weapons for most part of my life and have spent a lot of time in
    the great outdoors. That was until some people have decided it wise to take lots and lots of ammo
    and shoot at anything that moves. So I do hope that people like that finds this site.

    Thank you for letting me visit and how about you going over to the other side and visiting us soon.

    Hope
