I've been with this group through all 3 forums and I've known for a long time that this was the best gun forum on the net because of it's members. I'm ashamed to say that I've never been a paid member until recently. It's something that I always thought about doing but never actually got around to it. I've bought and sold countless items through the yrs and gained a lot of knowledge along the way. I always knew I was among good company. I can't recall ever having a bad transaction as a buyer or seller with this group, or a bad social interaction either. Looking back, I feel like a jackass for not being a paid member long before I was...... I didn't think I could feel better about being a member of this group until I paid my annual dues. I automatically felt more connected and better about being here. I guess what I'm trying to say is, don't be me. If you feel the urge to support this forum with a paid membership, don't wait. You'll be glad you did. I know I sure am.
