    TMI time

    I’ve been pretty sick as of late with some respiratory issues that won’t seem to go away. Between work and kids I don’t have a lot of time to relax and get better. Recreation time has been down to zero since any moment I do find, I rest in an attempt to feel better. I’ve always been blessed with good health, but this has done a number on me. It’s small potatoes compared to what a lot of people go through, and once I’m better all will be well. That’s not what this post is about. No pity or sympathy needed. If this is the worst thing I have to deal with...I’m winning.

    My old gun forum has become all gloom and doom with tons of infighting. No fun.

    My search for a new forum landed me here, and I’ve really been enjoying it a lot. With not being able to get to the range for my matches and training, you guys have filled the “gun buddies” role very well. It’s made this poor health time in my life a lot easier.

    Everyone’s been generous, welcoming, and full of information and wisecracks. It’s been great to tune out for a few minutes every now and then and shoot the breeze with you guys.

    That’s it really...thanks! Sometimes silly things like an Internet forum can make people feel good. I hope I can do the same for the awesome members and future members here.

    This is a nice forum. No sniping here. Seems all of us have better things to do.

    It's a good bunch here, a sort of respite from the rest of the on-line world. I hope you fell better and get some range time sooner than later ;)

    This is a good forum, a nice balance of laughs, technical stuff and (I believe)genuine concern for members and their families.

    Hope you feel better soon. Like most of us seeking information, advice and a collegial and truly friendly experience unlike 99% of most anything I have found on the internet as well as tremendously supportive "shopping" experiences to help fill my safes and partially satiate my hunger for shiny devices that go "boom".....I have manages to find a home here. I occasionally look at other sites, hoping for a similar experience....only to be disappointed. May we always stay the same as "attitude is everything".

    I hope you feel better soon. Know what you mean. My usually healthy wife, shooting-buddy, friend, better half has double pneumonia and the flu. Had to about drag in to Drs.
    This is a good forum. Most call it like they see it, and that's fine with me. Occasionally theres BS, not often. Self policed for the most part. Variety of sub-forums (?) so always something to check out. Pretty darn good bunch. Welcome and hope you feel better.
