Hi guys. I haven't been banned cause I really don't say very much or very often. But, looking at the names on the roster, I'd say "What a Banned of Monkeys" "Where the List is Long and Distinguished" LOL

I love Airguns more than anything,some of you on here are my friends! We are all a group of people who may not normally mix,the airgun topic brings us together. I've been called stupid on other forums and all kinds of nonsense,my point is I'm still here because this is my life! It's a good life at that. 8)

I haven't been thrown out of anywhere (yet), although I did once get a stern email when the picture didn't display correctly in my classified ad.

Is that serious enough to hang out with you buncha evildoers???

Well, me too in essence because I used the word "silencer"! What I am really sorry for, I send those folks over at GTA $50 about a month ago. I'll guess I'll snd this site $100!

I've never understood the reason for not even mentioning the word silencer. Last I heard, we have this thing called freedom of speech. As long as you aren't threatening people or the govt, then you can pretty much say what you want.  LDC = Shroud = Silencer and fools no one.

Bashing other Forums will get this one off to a rocky start, IMO.... There is not one Forum I am a member of that is perfect.... The ones that are far from perfect, IMO, I never joined, or no longer support.... The more political they become, the less likely I am to stick around.... The same goes for ones that make decisions based on advertising dollars or commercial interests....

For me, it's pretty simple.... I am out for the betterment of the sport and the technology that goes into it.... The other "stuff" just gets in the way of my enjoyment of that.... If I'm not having fun, I (have and will) vote with my feet....

Bob, I agree. But.... How would you know until you reach that point?

On AGN, I got chastised for complaining about calling silencers by euphemisms. My point was, we're only fooling ourselves. The feds know EXACTLY what we're talking about, no matter what we call them. It reminds me of the story of Aladdin, and his dissertation about burying one's head in the sand. Doing so doesn't change the facts.

There is an old Chinese proverb which says words to the effect.... Those who ignore the obvious, shall live the obvious.

My motto is I'm a guest in the house and I go by their rules. Some times the mods say I'm stepping outside the rules but I say yes sir and move on. This is a hobby for me to have fun. I enjoy shooting as well as building airguns. I'm not going to get stressed out over minor stuff. If it gets so bad that I am stressing I'll just sell my stuff and find something else to do. I don't think I'll ever sell my airguns because I can shoot them in my backyard and I don't have to deal with anyone if I don't want to.
