Most users on-line


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Just noticed this .....

Most users ever online was 891, 01-08-2012 at 10:19 PM.

America has been in a gun-buying frenzy since '08 (wonder why?) and it only makes sense that we have to go somewhere to shoot, buy ammo, and in this fine forum - to learn.

I am interested in this stuff for some reason. Rocky Raab has the Hunt Chat forum as he has some insight on users. See his thoughts on the thread linked below. The first post discusses “the most users on-line” from a few years ago.
I see this board as a shooters and reloaders board. Boards like the 24 Hour Campfire where there is considerably more discussion have many more visitors. The Campfire is not as closely moderated and spam will often remain on the board a bit longer than it does here.

Stay tuned for further updates!

What I like about this forum is that the topics of discussion tend to remain rather narrow and focused on things that I find interesting; reloading, shooting and hunting, primarily. Other forums may have 10 times as many people logged in, but they are talking about all kinds of stuff and the moderators either can't, or don't even try to keep up with it.

Perhaps the best way to sum it up is that I read almost every thread on this forum while I only go into certain sub-forums, on other sites.

I'm the same, Jason. There isn;t as much "activity" on Shooters Forum, so I read and learn more. Better put, there isn't as much "static" in this forum. I like that. And, I like that there's a Christian foundation to the forum.

As far as moderation goes, I like less....just like I prefer less Government. I want to hear the thoughts, experiences, and advice of moderators, not that a thread is locked because somebody is bickering or somebody's getting piled up on. Some guys deserve a "piling on" from time to time - a recent example comes to mind. And a little bickering can be good for the soul.....sometimes.

The Shooters Forum is automatically set to open in the first window anytime I log on to the internet. This one's my favorite.

Good thread, CVC.

I like it because even though I'm still rather new and "green", you guys don't just rip me apart for making some blatantly idiotic mistake. Even though the best way to learn is to make mistakes sting a bit.

I've tried to read a few other sights and the flame wars and misinformation is so bad that after four threads I am beating my head against a wall. Sifting through the garbage is very unproductive and can cost a fortune in trial and error.

Apparently gun purchases, and all items associated with guns, are continuing to be made at a record pace. Bud's Guns reported setting single-day sales records twice in just the last month or so and gun manufacturers are having a hard time keeping up with demand.

It follows that more folks would be reading and posting about guns. At the same time, I firmly believe the good folks, and good advice, on this forum keep making this the best gun website I've found on the intertoobz.

Apparently more and more shooters are convinced that Obama is a shoo in for re-election.

Lets hope this translates into getting off our duffs and going to vote - if we want to be certain, take a friend with us.

Shuetzenchat on Yahoo groups does not make the news they just gather it. Sign up for the Daily Digest and you will not recieve too many e-mails or spam. There is hope - if we vote. The problem is the Republican leadership and the news types want to pick our candidate again - and if they do it will be another looser. Sorry for getting into politics - not like me to do that.

Remember the ban on political discussions, guys - let's not get this thread closed.

The more users we see on hunting/shooting forums, the more I am encouraged about the general well-being of this nation. How those individuals express their concerns on election day is something I take great comfort in. So, without being political in the least, I am very glad to see more and more good folks on Shooters Forum. May my children, and my children's children, be so blessed as to enjoy all of the freedoms envisioned by our forefathers and enjoyed by us today.

Take a kid hunting, fishing or shooting on Saturday and to church on Sunday. Teach 'em something they won't learn in the schools or in the media. Get their heads on straight early and we'll all be better off, down the road. Party affiliations be hanged...it is the moral fortitude of our youth that matters most.

You have hit on a very good point. We see many very basic fire arms questions – No question is a stupid question – which should have been taught by a mentor. Some of the basics that were taught to us by simply hanging around our parents and Aunts and Uncles are not being passed on because so few of us are from shooting families today.
The only way we will have knowledgeable and enthusiastic shooters in our future is to pass the knowledge, the excitement and the basic gun handling skills to those we mentor. I don’t have children but my wife and I have helped a few young shooters get started – we probably had as much fun as they did.

Thanks, that is a good reminder. Parents, relatives and mentors need to pass on what we have to next generation and then pray that generation will exceed what we have done.

Yup...action, followed by prayer, followed by action. Sounds like a good plan.

I don't know whether he has a done deal or not, but the fact that there's at least a 50% chance he will be back is enough for me to worry ! There's 2 maybe even 3 guns I would like to have and planned on getting sometime over the next 18-24 month's, but I think I'll try to get at least the 2 for sure this year instead if I can.

Please re-read the rules of the board - no political postings.

Any more and the thread will have to be locked.
