This place is awesome

I was just looking through the options you can post a new topic under and I realized how awesome it is that there is actually a pretty popular forum that is based solely on guns and gun speak....a glitter of hope

One of us, one of us, one of us...

Its therapy really. Shooting, reloading, and highroading keeps us all from going bonkers!

THR has been one of my favorite places to hang out online for quite a few years now. Lots of interesting topics and plenty of helpful and enlightening information. The gun photos are nice too.

In the non-internet world I can usually be found at the well-stocked gun magazine section of my local bookstore.

Agreed! I wish I had looked at this site more closely years ago. It is a refreshing format and I hope my being here contributes further :-).

I spend way to much time trolling these forums, but it is great info. Not as fun as shooting or reloading but a close 3rd.

Yep.
I'm a member of a few forums (one for golf, one for cigars) but THR gets the vast majority of my online time.

This is a great forum and a big thumbs up to the moderators who help keep it that way.

More than 90% of the moderation is done by members reporting post that do not conform to our standards. It is the members that make THR what it is, we just sweep up from time to time.

Welcome to THR
+1.
Ive seen where some complain that it's more "heavily moderated" than most. Im glad it is though. Nice to have some structure.

It's probably because the moderators are paid so well I bet!

This place is a haven when the rhetoric elsewhere becomes less than civil.

I am an Admin on a smaller shooting Forum, THR is pretty much my role model of how a great shooting Forum is run and managed.

Always informative, and the stupid stuff gets shut down very quickly

There are several good general gun sites and a larger number of sites dedicated to specific gun types. I don't want to name any out of deference to this site, but a good search engine should find all or most of them.

We all hope to add to gun knowledge and to the strength of the pro-gun, pro-2A movement.

It's also one of the slickest in terms of user operating efficiency. No hangups, no tricks, no timeouts. You click post, and it posts without delay. You click this or that and it does "this or that" without confusing the software... etc.

Really refreshing.

I read on a couple of other forums but THR (and targettalk) are the only ones I ever post on. People here are MUCH more accepting of posters for who they are (and their grammar!) and the ratio of help/criticism is, like, infinity. You know, division by zero? There are members on other forums whose posts I always skip due to the attitudes and tone of their posts. Of course there are some here that don't grab my interest but that's not to say they're not civil, they just don't fall into my "read me" category.

Big thanks to the mods and sponsors here on THR!

As far as gun forums this isn't the only show in town but imho it is the best. There is a certain level of respectfulness and rational thinking expected of posts here.

Welcome and thanks.

Do keep in mind we take that code of conduct that you pledged to uphold very seriously and you may be surprised how high a standard we expect members to uphold. If you can honor your word and keep an open mind about breadth and depth of 2A advocacy you'll learn a lot.

Welcome aboard. THR is far and away my favorite of the gun boards. Good breadth of sub-forums and knowledgable people contributing to each. I frequent several others, but this is the one I call "home."
