    Just want to get the lingo straight. Many of us used to be "TFL'ers." I'm guessing we're "High Roaders" now.

    ...mostly because "THRers" is hard to say, and looks funny when typed out. ;)

    "Theirs"? no "THRers"...your spelling is wrong...no T-H-R-ers...uh what...oh heck "High Roaders". OH-- them, that wonderful forum that teaches responsible gun ownership...etc. Why didn't you say so...

    See, <chalk> Tamara right again;)

    High Roaders suggests there are Low Roaders, and they are....?

    Never saw any denomination as Firing Liners, but TFL was shorthand so "ers" was just a natural suffix.

    I predict that we'll end up calling ourselves THRers just as we called ourselves TFLers since they're equally unpronouncable.

    Some things are for reading, and others are for saying. Never heard anybody speak shorthand so I have no idea what the squiggles of it sound like. :)

    Sounds like some sort of biker gang.

    Nothing wrong with biker gangs though. :cool:

    Well, we could all be "Roadsters."

    Kind of sporty, don't you think?

    Roadsters are better than being called a "Roadie". :D Although I wouldn't mind being one for Shania Twain.;)

    Good Shooting

    Kinda wish this High Road thing could have been put to a vote. Sounds a little pompous to me like some group panhandling money at an airport. However, I'd rather be shooting from the high road than the low road.

    westex, we actually got the name from Rich Lucibella, founder and owner of TFL - see Oleg's introduction. I think it's a pretty nice way to pay tribute to Rich and all he's done for the RKBA cause. It carries the connotation that we're not just "geeks with guns" or "redneck evil-black-rifle-totin' anti-social retards", but that we have serious principles that we try to observe and propagate among firearms owners and enthusiasts. Works for me! :)
