    It'd be nice if you had an avatar and became a supporting addict so we knew you planned on staying a while - however, to answer your question, no.

    Never bothered with an introduction, puts up 21 one line posts, all posted today, and now he wants he wants to sell stuff. Way to become part of the forum community. I'm tired of new people signing up just to try and move sh!t through the classifieds.

    This is a good group but there are some “stiff necks”. post what you want and stay within the
    Forum rules. Volunteer an introduction and you are good to go.

    Well, I had been on here before, but lost my account info thus a new name. Sorry, I did not do an introduction first. I have been active in other 1911 forums and never seen someone "new" treated quite this way. Its a wonder people don't contribute more to forums.

    We treat each other like family here. We like to see some esprit de corp and fellowship. Not a lot of other forums allow sales that I know of, but my knowledge is limited.

    Courtship is a lost art! :grin:

    Merry Christmas!

    Well ain't you just special. posted a ton to be able to post something for sale. Been a few others done that then they are gone. How many other gun forums have the amount of guns sold like here. Don't like the way you have been treated pack your ass somewhere else. I sure don't care!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don't take it personal, this forum been subject to two unnecessarily long and drama filled posts over the last two - three days and everyone's a little on edge rather than inhaling the spirit of Christmas we've been down rabbit holes that kind of dimmed the Xmas Tree...we are, however recovering, licking our wounds, regretting our responses, wish we had said otherwise, etc.
    Same as it ever was.

    Merry Christmas and God Bless America!

    If I treated anybody in my family with the disrespect I see here over such little issues .. I’d probably be looking for a new family. They wouldn’t stand for some of what I see here.

    Most of the real world (meaning in person and not over a computer) shooting community is very welcome and accepting and get to know people before rushing to judgment. All of the Bullseye, HighPower, Vintage, Rimfire, Skeet/Trap matches I have shot in we have been welcome to anyone that showed up even for watching. So sad how people have become nowadays.

    you're probably right, but I'm on a crusade to be a better, gentler, kinder, more welcoming person in 2019

    I hold a shoot every year for the member s here. Have given tons of stuff away free as have many other members here. You come in and being new and not known are a risk to our community. As I said before you are more than welcome to leave and sell your goods elsewhere.

    That's true, but would you welcome those people if they showed up for one match, didn't join the club, and used your parking lot to starting selling stuff out of their trunk? That behavior wouldn't be welcome at the clubs I shoot at. Signing on here, throwing up just enough one line posts to reach the required number, and then wanting to start selling things is the "cyber" equivalent of that real world behavior. This is a very welcoming forum community when new members want to become an active part of it, not just use it another place to sell guns. There are plenty of sales specific sites for that.
