    Just to add my 2 cents!! This an excellent site with solid information for new shooters as well as seasoned competitors.
    Well run too!! I can't imagine not being a contributor.

    The gun community is no exception to having entitled people, I would just ignore them.

    Thanks, Boss. I'm still working on my 20 Vartarg article for you. I can certainly appreciate the time it takes you to put together content for the site and I'm hoping my content will make the cut and be a valuable addition.

    The gun of the week articles and the cartridge guides are what originally brought me here over a decade ago. Those are super interesting and valuable, and they took a tremendous amount of time to create.

    To folks asking what they could do: if you've got an idea for content you would like to create for the site, pitch it to the boss, it may just turn out that he's interested!

    There is another site I used to go to all the time, the name kinda sounds like what the knights of old used to do on horseback, charging each other with lances.

    The most active forum there is all political opinion, very little shooting/gun related. The Trolls are alive and well there.

    I am thankful for the moderation at this site keeping us on topic. I know how hard it is toride herd on all of us, but most of us seem to adult folk here.

    Thank you Moderators, for the excellent job you do.

    I would wager that most of the demands are from non-contributing members.

    I appreciate the hard work done by you and know from experience what is involved in keeping a site running. The majority of people have no clue. I for one want to Thank you for your hard work. Making demands is always the wrong approach to getting things done. Like one of the former replies, I used to be on another site as well but left it because of the bickering, endless stream of completely erroneous information and the "I am the greatest" attitudes.
    Unfortunately in todays society people tend to assume life owes them and they need not do anything to get what they want.

    NEWS FLASH:
    Life doesn’t entitle you to anything. You seldom get what you expect, you get what you create.

    Paul you do a lot of work so just ignore people with personal needs that you cant possibly deal with without a crew of many people doing it so you can do your above and beyond job. Honestly I don't know how you do it everyday but it is greatly appreciated by most.

    And who’s to judge what is ridiculous or in poor taste ? I personally have no problem leaving threads that I find ridiculous or in poor taste. Nobody is forcing you to continue to read a thread or comment in one. IMO there’s little need for the forum boss to worry about yours and others judgements and tastes. JMO.

    Paul, I REALLY APPRECIATE THIS SITE. I used to frequent several different sites but now this is just about the only site I go to. Your hard work is appreciated by more than you think. The members here are very knowledgeable and willing to share valuable informational also. As far as the demands on you doing something right now there are two consecutive letters in the alphabet (since you are a writer/publisher) that you need to use. They are the consecutive letters N&O. My wife's uses those letters all the time on me. Thank You For Your Hard Work and A Great Site

    Some people get confused with "a right vs. a privilege".
