    I find myself wondering how exactly many people have two or three times more than me. I already think I spend too much time here.

    If you do it, how do you post so darn much?

    >If you do it, how do you post so darn much?

    Because we can't afford any other recreational activity? That reminds me, we need a new thread...

    Some people have full time jobs posting here.

    Others just add meaningless comments such as this to increase their post count.

    Well, for me, posting on THR is my only way to get close to the "gun culture".

    I don't talk much most of the time anyways, so posting is a semi-uncommon thing for me, but the fact that I spend so much time here, usually two visits for 1 hour+ a day each, adds up I guess.

    And anyways, I do like seeing that number go up... :D

    Mostly useless posts...

    Boats, I've read a number of your posts and found them informative, entertaining and only partially useless;)

    As for myself, I'm jamming in as many posts as possible so I can get the "FNG" moniker out from under my name:D

    There are people at the DU site bragging about being over 5000 posts. Only thing I can think of about having that much time off is that it is financed through our tax dollars.

    Well, there's, what, like twenty categories on here with multiple subjects being added daily on each one. If you just replied to one post in each section that's almost twenty a day. Some days there's just a lot going on here and you want to put your two cents in. :D

    Yeah, maybe I need to branch out. As of now, I spend most of my posting energies on L&P, General handguns and Autopistols. I have a rifle, but rifles just work and AK v. AR debates get really old. I have a shotgun, but it is boring. I used to hunt, but don't have the time and am anchored by a toddler anyways. I only reload by recipe and am in no hurry to experiment blowing my pistols apart.;)

    I am buying a revolver next month. I guess I am mere weeks away from being a self-proclaimed expert in yet another shooting discipline!:D Look out revolver forum!

    "And so inform us of the revolver choice" the poster asks, increasing his meager post count :D

    My proposed revolver, or a fool and his money will soon be parted, but man, a one of a kind handgun is a thing of sheer joy, (and object of envy of those who have not).:D

    Well, getta loada MY post count. I've been here from the beginning...

    I almost NEVER make frivolous posts. If I don't have a meaningful contribution to make, I mostly don't say anything. Occaissonally I let fly with an irate opinion, but not often.

    And I've only ever had ONE thread shut. I linked it in my sigline! ;)

    Uh, that does make me wonder why THIS thread is still running, or at least hasn't been booted to Legal/Political. My thread got shut in a mere three houirs, and I even TRIED to make it gun related. Had help, too, but it was shut before I could even get back to it!

    I guess I'm just not special enough. Ya see how they're repressin' me? Sighhh... :( :rolleyes:

    I would post more often with meaningful subject matter but everytime I do my thread gets moved or closed! I've had great posts (arguements) on tanks, WW2, and military leadership but all YOU people want to talk about is GUNS. Get a life!:D The Sherman really was a turd of a tank.

    they moved my visit to the surgeon from the 9th to the 26th, so I will have even more time on my hands untill then. this town has WAY to many hills for a wheelchair.

    and my smith hasn't finished fixing my M1 carbine yet.

    thats my excuse and I'm sticking with it (grin)

    Skunk, you of all people, should strenuously avoid discussions about how many meaningless posts one has.;)
