Your Location?


December 24, 2007, 07:15 AM
Just wondering. Seems like a lot of members don't put their location in the header for the posts.

Now, I understand that some of the more discreet of us like to keep some things to themselves. My location is "Northern Indiana". If you want to scour the whole north end of the state trying to find me, have at it.

I find the "location" thing interesting when we talk about buying particular firearms, especially AR and AK types. Variation in laws and all that. There are also some regional preferences.

The other thing I thought really interesting a few weeks ago was a post about shooting AR's in France. Most everybody here assumes the greater part of Europe is gun free.

So...why don't you put a general idea of where you are (if you don't)?

I bet a lot of people will not post to your topic. Never leave a trail........Oh....I am in Floyd County Va. I also gain insight to others replies when I klnow where they live.

December 24, 2007, 07:58 AM
Charlottesville, VA (ish) :p

December 24, 2007, 08:03 AM
My location is 'Europe', and seeing as the Brüsselcrats are trying to turn us into one centralised federation it'll be pretty accurate in a few years time.. Feel free to strip-search all 710 million residents to find me. :o

December 24, 2007, 08:05 AM
Its funny, because anyone who's really internet savvy (I'm not savvy enough) can trace your IP and figure out your state, county and maybe even town.

December 24, 2007, 08:16 AM
Yeah........If someone wants to find you....They can find you. Especially big Brother. Everyone should be aware of that. Just like cell phone calls..... Never say anything you don't want someone (the world) else to know........:rolleyes: E-mail..............same thing..........

Bessemer, Alabama~! 16 miles SSW of Birmingham, and 44 miles ENE of
T-town (Tuscaloosa). :eek: :(

December 24, 2007, 08:23 AM
my location is in different places depending on who you ask.

mailing address says fl. the locals say it's lower alabama.:D

December 24, 2007, 08:23 AM
It would be easy to find me too. We are in the phone book under our real name.

December 24, 2007, 08:24 AM
Hiding in the mountains of Calumet, Colorado.
Waiting...just waiting. Go Wolverines!

December 24, 2007, 08:34 AM

I am hold up in NYC (until I can rotate out of here), battling zombie vampires.

For some reason, they think I am Legend.:)

December 24, 2007, 08:54 AM
Craig, Crestview is too close to the border to be Florida:neener:

I have no problem with telling people where I am. I even sent lat and lon numbers to a member that wanted to stop by and look at something I had in the classifieds- easier that giving my address with the way my neighborhood is numbered....I was wearing a tinfoil hat at the time, so it's all good:D

December 24, 2007, 08:54 AM
take a left at the cow,then turn right where the old Smith barn used to be till it burned down,and you'll find me no problem.;)
oh yeah,call first to avoid the killer guard cat.:uhoh:

"Bayou City" is a local term for Houston. Back in Florida we used to call a bayou a creek. Either way the city has turned them into drainage ditches.

"Drainage Ditch City" doesn't sound too good. :scrutiny:

Far west side for you Houston-area folks. Close enough to the ASC shooting range that on a clear day I can hear gunfire in the distance from my back yard. :)

I got property in the mountains in Colorado (Arkansas River Valley). Borders the BLM. The gunfire there is from my house. :)

Okay, not a house. It's a silver classic travel trailer we call "The Gunstream."

I've always thought that curious as well... It's not like Big Brother doesn't know where we are... (he replied from an equally vague location)

December 24, 2007, 10:22 AM
Very rural Eastern KY... and no thanks, I have heard plenty of hillbilly jokes already.... :neener:

I agree Big Brother can find any of us he wants to-but I really don't think I want to give my exact location either. Just a little disillusioned & cynical. But I am about 30 miles SE of Atlanta Ga-probably 11 or 12 miles from Atlanta Motor Speedway

December 24, 2007, 10:29 AM
Mississippi. About 80 or so miles north of the coast.

December 24, 2007, 10:30 AM
Zach, I have a friend in Ashville!! Tattoo artist as a matter of fact, the guy that is doing my left arm.

December 24, 2007, 10:31 AM
I live between Auburn and Topeka in Ks and if the pizza boy and UPS cant find me I am safe.

December 24, 2007, 10:32 AM
Oh boy, Big Brother has pics of tattoos that he can ID me with now:uhoh::uhoh:

December 24, 2007, 10:33 AM
And, I used to live in Asheville until recently.
Nice ink. Very "tutti di mare".
Asheville is a great town.
Now, I'm marooned in the burbs outside Charlotte.

Nice ink. Very "tutti di mare".

Thanks, but I can only take credit for wearing it- and "of the sea"? Yes, A crab and a hawksbill sea turtle complete the sleeve.

Yeah........If someone wants to find you....They can find you. Especially big Brother. Everyone should be aware of that. Just like cell phone calls..... Never say anything you don't want someone (the world) else to know........ E-mail..............same thing..........

Or used against you in a court of law.

I now live in Sun City. I am the grey haired fat guy, driving a certified old farts car. You can't miss me.

The only thing to really ID me by is, I still like to drive fast. And I stilll CCW, so I am the guy that you will not see the Full size Government model or HiPower I am wearing. Or the Shotgun next to the bed, or the rifle in the trunk. Go figure.

Another guy said it earlier in this thread.

Not as lean
Not as Mean
Still a Marine

Good luck and Merry Christmas to all

I currently live in a place that literally is off the map. My own family has to meet me at a gas station so I can show them the way to my parcel.

It's not about being paranoid, it's just nice not ever receiving junk mail, solicitors, etc, etc. Our power company traces my account by county parcel # :D

By the way, big brother can find me easy (I'm registered to vote).

December 24, 2007, 11:40 AM

I think you could figure out where I am if you read every single one of my posts. I don't think I ever posted where I am, but I've left enough clues that you could figure it out.

I just posted something about that on another thread before I spotted this thread, where somebody was bellyaching about gun signs "at my Gander Mountain" with zero indication as to where that particular Gander Mountain was.

Real helpful, eh?

the Great State of Alaska here! It is always funny when my credit cared company verifies my address when I call. They never fail to think that AK means Arkansas.:D I just politely agree and smile.

In Valdez, nobody is hard to find. We only have one grocery store!:neener:

Newburgh Indiana here...I'll give you my address too if you want to send me a christmas present.:)

I just don't see it being a big deal...Like others have said, if someone wants to find you, they will find you...Maybe if I was always talking about how huge/valuable my collection is, or if I was soliciting info on how to make bombs then I would be more paranoid.

December 24, 2007, 01:52 PM
Yes I am a hillbilly.Far east Kentucky all my life and hope to die there. I live where I was born. I have never found a place I like better than my mountains. Go UK

Still in Montgomery, Al.. Not too far from Ala Dan and a few others here at THR.

Big brother knows who I am already. (you too) Who gives a ..... cause if big brother comes for us, we are done anyway. Now, if the SHTF, most of us are in good shape. :D

Government agencies can all find me. No Problem. I vote, work, pay taxes, buy guns and do all of the other normal, everyday things that we all do.

I just don't want to beg the world for more spam, junk mail and sales calls by showing my town and state along with my name on every post.

I never thought about it before, so now my location should say "suburbs of Philadelphia". Which is in the fuzzy zone between anti philadelphia and the reset of the state.

I'd never expect street address. Generalized information is nice. I live in middle Tennessee. I'm close enough to Nashville to see the "Bat Building" from the house. Yes, I live in the "hood", otherwise known as Inglewood. I've been in this two mile circle for 57 years. Did I hear someone say "stuck in my ways"? Sure am. :D

turn right where the old Smith barn used to be till it burned down,

Reminds me of Burnt Mill Road south of Colorado Springs.

Kid saw the exit sign once as we were tooling down I-25 and asked me, "Daddy, what did they call it before the mill burned down."

"Why, Unburnt Mill Road, of course," I replied, with a brilliant spark of non-intelligence.

Highway hypnosis, I guess. Duh.
