    I got a letter from a Herb G. Somehow he figured out my home address after he noticed my posting here.

    Anyway no problem with that Herb, (although I'm curious how you did it) but I prefer to discuss your letter via the private message facility here. You may have some wrong idea of where I am coming from...

    I may be able to help in some ways, but not in others.

    Really not that hard to do in some cases. I have seen guns for sale here that are also on Faceboom gun pages. On Facebook you can glean quite a bit of info such as real names, location etc and with a quick google search you can get an address..... Not that I have ever done that

    It took me less than a minute. Full name and address.

    Just from info that's been posted on NWFA..
    Now your full name isn't on this website. But from links posted I figured out your last name and off to google I went...:)

    This is why on any board where I have mod creds, I make sure we nuke ANY doxxer HARD. Don't give a crap about site policy, that's MY policy as someone who's had a stalker problem, and I've always told the site owners that if they don't like it they can revoke my creds.

    So far, all of 'em have stood behind me. :)

    Well THAT'S brilliant... let's stalk someone who's already got an über-alpha type personality, that's ALWAYS situationally aware of his surroundings, and is ALWAYS armed with more than one type of weapon.

    I mean really... imagine the trophy THAT skin-suit would make, what could POSSIBLY go wrong?! :rolleyes:

    Now ya'll know why I've never done Facebook or Twitter, not even once.

    :D

    Well, Herb is obviously not a stalker, and I'm not shaking in my boots, heh. I guess posting links to my own stuff is the way he did it as Velzey pointed out. Also my name is not common. Oh well...

    Still I prefer to communicate via personal messages on this forum. Herb, please?

    You know, there are some crazy people out there that think "dangerous game" is the only kind worth hunting... same kind of mindset as some Active Shooters, they think it's the ultimate Hardcore Mode in Doom or somesuch horses**t.

    I got Herb's flaming email. I haven't posted any links or anything here. I use the same screen name on other sites, related to firearms or other interests. The email didn't come on the address I use for this site.

    NSA must have leaked my address! :eek:

    That's why I try to limit my digital foot print. Not crazy like, but canceled my facebook a couple years ago and try not to create accounts on sites or social media.
    Except this one.

    Of course my wife has facebook and posts all our business. So a lot of good it does.

    Ever since I found out creeps online can find your location off pictures you post I got out of there.

    "Ever since I found out creeps online can find your location off pictures you post I got out of there."

    There are tools out there for stripping that information out of the pictures.
