    I lurked for about a month before joining TFL. Then I joined THR right when it opened.

    Found The Firingline about a year before it closed and got on with the first visit and I got lucky and found the Highroad before it went live.

    I was shooting for a while before discovering THR. I lurked for a bit over a month. The biggest reason is that, as I don't often have much time to spend here, by the time I got to the really interesting threads someone already said what I wanted to say!

    Lots of smart folks here...

    Registered at TFL about 2 minutes after I found it. Took me a few weeks to settle on THR as a replacement.

    Hmm... I found out from the 1911forum. Took me about a week to actually sign up and stuff. But usually it doesn't take me long to register onto a forum, Im on so many different ones that one more doesn't hurt.

    Hell I'm even signed on GlockTalk for heavens sake. But that took much, much longer to register into. :p

    Actually my experiance mirrors Kinsman's. I joined up the instant I found TFL, but I only racked up 85 posts on the 3 yrs I was there (I was too busy reading...). I post a little bit more here at THR, but not much.

    Umm, it took me three years to register...:( I think I've read each thread on TFL's historical thread listing at least twice.

    I hung out less than a week before registering on TFL.

    Came here when I first heard it was the "new" gathering place.

    Lurked intermittently on TFL .. ''always meant to sign up''!! That did tho ''introduce'' to me many of the familiar names.

    When I got heads up from Derek re THR, it was not too long before signing in ...... and now, well ..... addiction has gotten the better of me!:)

    How fitting that this is my 1,000th post.

    I lurked for one or two days after I found the site. I found it thanks to a thread on www.packing.org which included a link to Oleg's site, www.a-human-right.com . This is without a doubt, the best firearms discussion forum on the net. Thanks Oleg.

    Minimal Lurking

    Found the THR last week, over from outdoorsbest, liked the tone and content, and jumped right in. Water temp seems fine so far...

    Still trying to figure out why "molon labe" wasn't in my church school class.
