    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.

    Without question, the single best investment I've ever made.

    Everyone who hasn’t signed up as a supporting member should consider it.

    We’ve all spent $20 in worse ways. Tell me I’m wrong

    Don’t be ashamed. I didn’t pay until this site started up. I had been thinking of doing so at the last place, but I’m glad I didn’t for obvious reasons.

    Just wanted to put this back up to the top...... Hopefully it'll reach some eyes that haven't seen it before. This is, without a doubt, the best forum on the internet. The amount of knowledge and generosity here continues to amaze me.

    Yep, been meaning to do it for awhile now. Just paid for a 1 year. Hopefully a lifetime membership next year.

    This is the best forum I've ever participated in.

    My only 'regert' is that I didn't do a Life Member contribution to begin with ... and that I waited almost a year to get active ... and that I didn't go to every meet that I was physically able to make ... and that I ... oh never mind, I'm getting carried away.

    Bottom line: I love this group like no other I've ever seen! Yes, even the pig-ignorant a$$hat$ !!!

    I'm having trouble spotting the account upgrades button. Has it moved since this was originally posted?

    I’ve thought about signing up but just haven’t yet. I looked at it one day but my PayPal email isn’t the same as my email here. When I thought about using PayPal I thought using them was detrimental to the foundation that this site was founded.
