Are you exclusively THR or do you still visit TFL?


December 26, 2002, 11:10 AM
I find myself visiting TFL & find a fair number of members still there. Do you still go?

Still visit TFL. Things have REALLY slowed down there since THR opened though.

I still visit TFL often, although often I just browse without logging in. Blackhawk's right about it slowing down since THR opened... at 10.14 a.m. Central time this morning, THR had 242 users logged in and 134 guests, for a total of 376 on the board. At the same time, TFL had 51 users logged in and 103 visitors, for a total of 154 on the board.

I try, though I've been quite busy behind the scenes here. I'm sure going to miss TFL - it's been "home" for some time.

December 26, 2002, 11:19 AM
I'm two timing...

December 26, 2002, 11:31 AM
Still go to both. Remarkable however, when you look at the who's on the forum box over here, it's like exactly what it use to look like over at the TFL! I am very happy to be here!


December 26, 2002, 11:35 AM
No, since THR opened I have not been back to TFL. Mostly I lurked there, and here I'm posting more- maybe because everyone on TFL seemed to know everyone else, just me but I felt a bit of an outsider. Even with alot of the same people here as on TFL it feels like everyone is new in town.

December 26, 2002, 11:56 AM
Yep. Still check it. Here's my order of boards:

1. G&A Board
2. THR
3. Rimfire Central
4. Gun-Talk
5. TFL

used to be:
1. G&A Board
2. TFL
3. Rimfire Central

Yep, though I haven't posted in a few days. I'm just lurking and waiting to take my shot at Last Post of TFL. :D

December 26, 2002, 12:01 PM
TFL , well became home. I have done some searches, and will continue to use as a reference. Sentimental perhaps, but I think a bunch will be online at TFL to "turn out the lights". A farewell salute.

December 26, 2002, 12:02 PM
Two timer. I'm sure I'll continue to go back to TFL for a lot of the archived threads there.

December 26, 2002, 12:05 PM
Watch both.

Like Runt;
Really busy here tho.


December 26, 2002, 12:07 PM
TFL will always be like a home. There is so much good information there that it would be hard to leave it alone.

December 26, 2002, 12:08 PM
I still check the handloading and hunting and rifle sections of TFL and will do so until the end.

90% of my time is here though.

December 26, 2002, 12:25 PM
I have completely switched to THR.

December 26, 2002, 12:43 PM
Still active and reading/posting at both. I will continue to use TFL for reference info.

December 26, 2002, 12:46 PM
This is my first post here. I like THR, it has a comfortable and familiar"feel".

I'll stop back at the old place a few times, to be sure I don't miss private messages, etc. but this is where the growth and future reside.

December 26, 2002, 12:48 PM
Reading and posting here, but still looking in on TFL, too. And TAC (The Armed Citizen) is another of my favorites.

December 26, 2002, 12:51 PM
Browsing? I'm still posting over there. :o

December 26, 2002, 12:56 PM
but less and less at TFL due mostly to a lot less traffic and topic's to post to. I do like this place it has the same flavor and good people as TFL. :D

December 26, 2002, 01:00 PM
I visit daily "for the people".
I consider fellow posters family, and the host site as home (in an internet sort of way).
If there are folks still posting at TFL that need an answer to a question that I just might have, I'd like to help.

I am in the transition of finding a new primary site. This seems to be the horse in the lead, though other respectable sites exist as well.

Mildly resentful of being evicted (and of course feeling guilty over that emotion), I try not to visit TFL as often anymore.
Being bitter for a little while is just the way I am, a form of catharsis if you will... it runs in the Snowdog family.

In a couple months, I'll be able to speak of TFL with a grin again.

December 26, 2002, 01:02 PM
Been postin around differnt places... :D

December 26, 2002, 01:21 PM
Still poke around TFL and read new & old posts...
I won't leave until Rich turns out the lights.;)

As far as TFL goes, I said my good-bye's on 24 Dec 02; so
I'm currently dividing time between The High Road, Family-
Friends-Firearms, and Shootersville.

I still visit TFL and will do so until the end. I plan on being more active on this board.

December 26, 2002, 01:54 PM
Yes I still visit it.

December 26, 2002, 02:36 PM
I've been checking in at both sites. TFL is down right now. I tried twice.

December 26, 2002, 02:43 PM
Here, there, a couple other places.

Rich suggested the best outcome of closing TFL would be if we fanned out and took the High Road Philosophy on the road, so to speak. I like this site so far, but I will be checking in on several boards, as time allows.

December 26, 2002, 04:13 PM
Well, if TFL is still going to be online but not active, I am envisioning many, many links on this forum to that one in various post.

There is so much good information there.

Its almost like another online encyclopedia.

December 26, 2002, 04:30 PM
I still check in at TFL. I'm sort of weaning myself away. I spend more time here now, but I guess I'm afraid I might miss something if I don't take a look at TFL. Maybe the 9 vs. 45 debate will be solved before they shut down. :D

December 26, 2002, 04:33 PM
Still visit. Still some new posts over there

December 26, 2002, 04:34 PM
I am still going to TFL, and will go until it is shuts down.

Mike Irwin
December 26, 2002, 04:35 PM
I'll post to TFL until the last minute.

I would be posting and moderating at, but for some reason my Mother's computer goes nuts when I visit that site.

December 26, 2002, 05:21 PM
I'll hang with TFL to the end........may need someone to turn out the lights........

December 26, 2002, 05:45 PM
still check in but tfl sure has slowed down since thr opened.

December 26, 2002, 06:40 PM
I still go over to TFL and still will until they pull the plug in a week or so. It's kind of sad, like walking around your old home but the main thing is that it had a very happy ending:) For some reason I have the desire to write my name on a wall or something.

December 26, 2002, 07:12 PM
When time, still there and a few others. Lurk a lot, post a little.

December 26, 2002, 07:23 PM
The king (TFL) is dead! :mad:

Long live the king (The High Road) :)

December 26, 2002, 07:28 PM
As the year ends, TFL should be used for searching the vast database on firearms. I will go there as long as the site is up, to search a question before I post it on THR. I suggest everyone else does the same. Saves resources. Hey, this stuff ain't free!

December 26, 2002, 08:10 PM
I will be on TFL till the end. Only seems right since I was there since the beginning. Just starting to hit this place.

December 26, 2002, 08:21 PM
10-Ring, I look when an email notifies me, but I find it a bit uncanny- like stepping aboard a ghost ship where the lights are still burning but the decks are empty...

December 26, 2002, 08:44 PM
Still doing searches over there, and still post occasionally. Using PM to try and get a friend over here, but haven't been able to reach him yet. I've been leaving bread crumbs at TFL and elsewhere for him.

December 26, 2002, 08:49 PM
Still dropping by.

I'll miss the old place, but LOVE the new digs. :D :D


December 26, 2002, 08:55 PM
Standard Ops: TFL first, THR second. After the 1st it will be THR first and Gun-Talk second. That is if I can break away from here. ;)

December 26, 2002, 09:33 PM
Yep. I'm still hanging out at TFL alot. I've been dividing my time between here, there, and Gun-Talk. For some reason, whenever I start my browser, my fingers type in without me thinking about it.

December 26, 2002, 09:45 PM
Both until the very end.

December 26, 2002, 11:07 PM
But it's kinda depressing to know that the old girl will be steaming on a preset course, the passengers and crew long since departed.

December 26, 2002, 11:33 PM
Just did... nothing new in the Art's Art of the Rifle.

December 26, 2002, 11:57 PM
It's just habit I guess. I'm used to clicking on the TFL shortcut in my favorites menu every day. Old habits are so hard to break. This forum is great though. All the old people are here, so it seems like home.

December 27, 2002, 12:06 AM
I used the TFL search option just yesterday to check out a gun I found and it saved me from making a mistake.I had never heard of a Rem. 522 but other members had and I didn't see a good thing said about the little plinker.I didn't post much at TFL but I sure learned alot.I thought the site was going to be left up so the old post can be looked up or am I sadly mistaken?This site looks like it will carry on the TFL tradition but it will take some time to get that much information again if it is lost.

December 27, 2002, 12:19 AM
I'm visiting both until the very end.tom.

December 27, 2002, 12:31 AM
WOW :eek: I didn't expect that kind of response. I guess it's a testiment as to the quality of what TFL was & the high standards it/they set for THR to live up to. :cool:

December 27, 2002, 12:32 AM
in honor of TFL let's stay with it till the end...tom

December 27, 2002, 12:35 AM
Still go there first and then here. Check out "Winding down & getting lonely" post in the General Forum. Kevinch captured it.

December 27, 2002, 12:38 AM
I lurked most on TFL and I mostly just lurk here. I do more readin and learnin that way :D
I also go to
*GunTalk and on occassion
*The FiringRange


December 27, 2002, 01:53 AM
I still go over to TFL & look around, & post if I can answer a question.

I'll wait for a last opportunity to say goodbye; meaning the last time I'm online before midnight on the 31st.

December 27, 2002, 02:04 AM
I'm using TFL for research only at this point. Sadly, I only recently discovered TFL after lurking on Shooters for a year or so (got tired of Shooters due to the obnoxious troll that took up residence over there).

Looks like this site has all the comforts of TFL- like coming home.

Hope they can keep it going!


December 27, 2002, 02:06 AM
I still go to TFL. I was only a member for a short time and there are tens of thousands of posts I have not read. ;)

December 27, 2002, 02:08 AM
I still go to TFL; I'll keep going until the last post.

And I'll probably continue to visit for research...

December 27, 2002, 05:24 AM
'Til the fat lady sings, to the very end.

December 27, 2002, 12:11 PM
Still will visit T.F.L. but can see MANY familiar folks here so it feels like home here too !

December 27, 2002, 12:48 PM
then use it as a reference for myself and others. I will miss it, but it looks like this site is going to take off and hopefully become even greater.:D Thanks again Oleg and all that helped him put this site together. A fine job indeed!;)

December 27, 2002, 09:37 PM
I also continue to visit TFL, and will 'till the plug is pulled.
best, RG
