    So I got to thinking. The earliest post I can find is in late December 2002. And I recall some years back a special Ten Year Anniversary knife was made up.

    So the question is, has anyone thought of what sort of tribute we should have for the Twentieth Year Anniversary?

    Twenty year members should be bestowed a "magic button" that instantly and painfully neuters anyone who types the word SHOTTY.

    According to my profile I’ve been here since March of 2003. I was in my early 20s back then and THR was the first discussion form I ever joined. I’ll be 40 in another couple months. I’ve been on THR nearly half my life. Besides my dad It’s been my greatest source of firearms knowledge.

    Thank you everyone for the past two decades of shared knowledge!

    I would be up for an anniversary knife every 10 years, if the knife was good and affordable for all. Of course, there would be a lively discussion to designate which knife that would be, but with all the connections to the cutlery biz that we have on this board, something wonderful should be possible.

    Wait, if there was a knife involved, would I have had mine broken in half (when I was suspended) like Chuck Connors at the beginning of *Branded*?

    I came in on Christmas Eve 2002, which may say something about my social life.

    My man, I was born November '99. I'm not exactly used to being older than many things aside from family.

    Many of us learned to reload before the internet from books. I remember building my first computer, a 286-16 that had a radio shack cassette player for a drive and played games on cassette. That being said, I may be in for a knife, depending.

    I was working for a Radio Shack repair depot back when they were updating their TRS-80s from 4k of memory all of the way to 16k.
    Almost enough to record a reloading recipe... .

    I learned on a TRaSh 80. I think we got one in my school around 7th grade. :)

    So, I wouldn't want my knife to be another Glock knife.;)

    I joined in 2004, though lurked at TFL before that.

    I'm the same age as Glock Inc. (1963) Older than the G17, (1981) , or the Feldmusser 78 & 81, however.

    I think a switch-caliber pistol, in 9mm and .45 ACP, made by Colt and Glock in cooperation, would be the perfect 20th Anniversary Comemerative.
