That kind of crap just kills me, it's almost like these 'experts' know it all and have nothing left to learn! We all have plenty to learn from others.

good to have you back, Gerry - was a bummer to see you go

The civility here's always been pretty great IMO - sure, some heated dialogues but nearly always always w/ good intent and WITH HUMOR... laughter makes the world go 'round, and what good are ya if ya can't laugh @ yerself??? (not you specifically).

The worst I've seen it get was right @ the price spike these saw coupla years back and then all the value speculation threads - that seemed to have unfortunately skewed the mix here somewhat from the hardcore driver's and DIY'ers to show 'n shiners, flippers, and museum car owners.

Gerry, if I recall correctly you might have at least somewhat overreacted to a few things back then and - again, if memory serves me right - you'd said it may have been attributed to a health issue you were experiencing?

Hope all's set w/ that on your end there... again, it's great to have you and your sense of humor back 8-). Car's lookin great, and I really dig the striping of the wood you used on your build there!

and lol - yeah... this thread's a disaster... love it!

Agreed, Win... this place does seem to swing around a bit (go for it, 'Raw) and it's great to see it back to the core gaming gamers. Good peeps.

Game ON, dewdz!!!

You three chimps have never been on the receiving end of a "negligent discharge" - they've all been precisely placed!

Well from what I am hearing it seems that the flamers have moved on for the most part. It also seems this forum is back to what it used to be and that is a good thing

Yes, the turbo forum has gotten more user friendly over the last few years and the professionals that contribute to this board is amazing. Unfortunately we have lost some good contributors too.

Welcome back! All the good supportive folks are still here, most of us anyway. The naysayers; well, there will always be some no matter where you go, but some have moved on to greener pastures. We have a very highly intelligent and thus highly opinionated group. Some have never learned the social skills to balance the financial prosperity that allows us to join this unique club. Just my opinion, FWIW.

there are 2 types of shooters, those who've has ND's and those who will have ND's... basic range/gun safety will get you home at night. Never flag anyone, even with a completely empty gun.

Great point is the AR platform with a floating firing pin. It can set off soft primers, just by the bolt dropping. In essence, slam firing. I have seen footage of an AR going full auto for 3 rounds with shotty primers in reloads.

As a MG shooter, I found buying in bulk was my best option.

Working on my cars for past time fun.

OMG, what do you have against MGs. Fortunately my LBCs are Austin Healeys but I'll warn my MG buds about your proclivities.

Just kidding because after a career of shooting M16s, M60s and 50cals, I do know what you mean.

With those toys the government was most likely picking up the tab? A tenant of mine who's in the NG does is 1 weekend a month as a range supervision trainer at Ft. Wood.

I wish us civilians could go play with the fun stuff.

Civility good. Attention span and dick jokes poor. For home defense I like the old M4 Sherman. 75mm with 100+ rounds, plus my wife on the 50.

until 2008-2009 when you couldn't get ammo, bulk or not.

I am in the $.19 per round for 5.56 using once fired brass, $.12 with my own brass I have policed at the range. I bought it more for .300 blackout subs though.
