    I'm getting pretty tired of people pissing and moaning about the negative aspects of the site so I figured I'd take a moment to point out the positive aspects.

    1: It's FREE
    2: You are given an EQUAL opportunity to sell your firearms as everyone else (you don't have to sit here and bump your add every 30 seconds to keep up with the jobless person who is trying to get a quick buck)
    3: There are clearcut unambiguous standards to adhere to. No guess work. If you get a warning or infraction it is 100% your fault.
    4: Active non-stagnant community.
    5: Passionate staff. Problems are addressed in a timely manner.
    6: Continually growing community.
    7: Joey brings the best looking booth workers to the shows.
    8: ...

    Feel free to add to this list with ANYTHING positive. In the spirit of Thanksgiving lets looks at what this site really gives us instead of what our own selfish wants makes us feel we're being slighted. :thumbup:

    and there is free :eatpop:


    Great post!

    I totally agree with you weebs this is a great sight i have been a regular on a couple older sights since 1989 and i spend most of my online time on this one cause it has everything else the others have and its local .

    i just don't see the point in complaining about this sight there are more important bigger issues that time and energy can be spent on.

    some helpful input is one thing and the board has be open to that

    We also have to address the "cons"

    Cons

    1. There are no cons as cons cannot own firearms!

    You're secrets safe with me. Just drop a Springfield M1A on my front porch in an unmarked cardboard case. :)

    This site acts like a sponge for the free time, I didn't know I had. The steady increase in forum membership is an indicator that others also enjoy the service it provides.

    I believe in supporting things I enjoy and would like to invite others to consider becoming supporting members. A big THANK YOU to the mods and Joey for their efforts!

    Cheers!

    I think it is a big PRO that you can post a thread threatening to leave the site and not get an automatic ejection. Not all sites are so open minded.
