    Hello everyone. I was reading various posts and I noticed that quite a few members of the high road seem to personally know each other. Some seem to know quite a few members. I personally go shooting with 2 other members of this forum. I was curious. Just how many people on this forum do you personally know? This is a question for the mods as much as for the members. Have you gone out of your way to meet other members? I haven't, but that's cause I haven't noticed any other members who live in Northeast Pa.

    I'm not sure this discussion really belongs in the 'general gun discussions' forum, it would probably be a better fit in the 'rallying point' sub-forum. Anyway, that being said.. I can't really say I know any THR member personally. I have met one member for a brief face to face gun transaction (I bought his 1911), but I don't really count that as KNOWing someone. And I have spoken, again briefly and also transaction related, to a couple other members on the phone. Thats about it. I think about twice maybe I've had sort of loosely knit plans to meet and shoot with other members, but for whatever reason those just never panned out. I really don't think there are that many THR members particularly close by to me. I've seen some from neighboring counties and such, but never one right around me. I wish there were.

    I only know 2 people from thehighroad. I've met around 30 or so during Nashville gun shows or the 10 or so I've had transactions with but I don't know them well personally.

    I've never really met any other THR members, but I have an idea of who a couple are. A few months ago during the fight aggainst a MD AWB about 500 people showed up, and from the many accounts of High Roaders, I remembered a few from earlier in the day, I didn't identify myself as one, and neither did they. There have been a couple THR shoots somewhat locally that I would have loved to go to, but I got stuck working, and couldn't attend.:(

    Had a highroader come into the store, his gf spotted THR on the comp screen and was amazed a book guy, next door to old-hippie heaven, would be surfing gun sites. Have bought some stuff FTF from the classifieds sections. All seemed to be good peeps. OTT I don' know nobody!

    I know 2 people from here. One introduced me to the board, and got me seriously interested in RKBA.

    This is kind of off topic, but it could be interesting, so we'll let it run for a while.

    I've met at least 50 THR members, most of whom I consider friends. I've been meaning to make up a list, just for fun.

    I'd like to meet Oleg, seeing as we both live in the same city and I'm trying to develop an interest in photography (get it? develop? hahaHA! ...sorry :( )

    I've met people from Potato Cannon forums... so why not RKBA ones?

    I just found out that a THR member is my new prospective member of my 2nd Amm society at school. No surprise, thats as far as it goes.

    I know one, but he is my brother so I don't think he counts.

    Or maybe he counts twice since I know him so well.

    Or maybe it counts against me since I wish I didn't know him. :D

    as far as I know, I've never met anyone from here, however my girlfriend did go to college with the wife of one of the guys here.

    I know that there are a couple members that live near me, but I've only met one. The one I've met is not a poster however.

    If you are in South MS/LA, say hello!

    I haven't met any THR folks face-to-face, but have had some extensive "conversations" {via PM or E-mail} with some memebers.

    Even though I haven't met anyone personally, I do consider a lot of members here to be 'friends'......or perhaps as a very extended family.
