    I see a lot of unfamiliar people here; usernames I've never seen on TFL. (YES, I'm aware some have changed their usernames...)

    How did you learn about this place? Were you a lurker at TFL? If so, why did you decide to start postin' here?

    If you didn't hear of us from TFL, where did you come from?

    I was a TFL lurker (for the most part - a few posts under an old name). When THR opened, I figured I might as well join the fun!

    Saw an announcement about this board on another board I frequent. Either Parallax's C&R forum or 1911Forum. Don't remember which.

    I followed a link from 1911forum. Things are kinda funky over there right now.

    Lurked once in a while at TFL. Saw the link posted at a couple of the other sites I visit. I thought I would give it a try and I'm glad I did. I'm a guy that might view several gun forums 2-3 nights in a row and then not even turn on my home computer for days. So if I ever respond to a post of yours and you reply with a question, I am not ignoring anyone, just busy.

    I've been lurking at TFL for sometime "addicted" actually. Never posted there, thought I would try to post some here. Congrats on busting 2000 members THR!

    Lurked for ages. Then finally figured that, though I'm not guerilla warfare expert with a world-class arsenal, I might as well open my yap and say SOMETHING. Makes the whole experience more interactive. Besides, I suspect that most of our 2000 or so members are just average folks like me who don't claim to be an "expert" on anything, but who might have a question or comment on occasion, and who are eager to hear varied opinions/experiences.

    Besides, if I say something amateurish or inane I figure all anyone has is my name. What? You don't think my REAL name is "Range J. Rover"??!!:mad: Well! #@%$!*&!
    :p

    I happened across Oleg's a-human-right.com site from a falfiles.com posting last week, dropped him a note of praise on the site and he replied with this sites address.

    I've been on the 'net since '93, but never found TheFiringLine.com.... :banghead:

    I'm here the same way that brought G-Raptor. I'm a regular poster at Glock Talk under the name dave1.

    Saw a thread on the opening of THR, liked what I saw and visit as often as I can. Although I have posted mainly at GT, and own several Glocks, they are not the only fireams I own. I enjoy posting here because, as with GT, I am able to talk about any weapon I own and get some very good replies.

    Thanks again for a place to hang my hat.

    I think I started that thread!!!

    Dave and G-Rap: I know you two from GT!!! Seen you around here, and Eddie C too...you are good guys! Glad you joined us!

    Warning: We might get you to buy a gun other than a Glock if you hang around here too much!!! (YES there are other gun manufacturers!)

    Drjones:p :D

    I think it's kinda nice to see new names with the message "...I lurked @ TFL..." BTW, we haven't had our first troll yet, have we?

    Has This Site?

    Been posted to www.packing.org yet? I was away for Christmas and I might have missed it.

    Oh, to the original question... I learned of this place on TFL where my alias is the same. I also saw the link posted on Michael Moore's BFC forum (don't ask!!).

    I post on GlockTalk and Packing.Org with the same name. Hello all!

    I overheard a conversation at a gun show about TFL closing shop, and those guys were really bummed about it. When I asked what TFL was, they said it was the "best gawda^^$##ed sit on the net." So I checked it out and found my way here. I have really enjoyed myself so far- what a great bunch of patriots!

    member 1911 forum, lurker of TFL.

    I think I started posting here because the 'slate was cleaned' with the move. Everyone was back to the starting line...
