    This post is in apology to three different parties. First, the Manchester, NH police dept., second, The Firing Line, espescially James McLoud, and third, to all members of THR.

    My previous thread, about a felony stop, was made up.I did not realize when I started the thread how damaging it could have been/was to the reputations of The Firing Line, MPD, and THR as a whole. I am very truly sorry for my immature and childish behavior.

    That being said, can a mod please sticky this so all parties may see it?

    Strange. That was your 187th post which is code for murder. Why would you do that?

    You mean the " So this girl called the police on me..." thread?

    Why did you make it up?

    I don't recall what was going through my head at the time, the only thing that's going through it now is that it was a bad idea, and I am very very sorry for doing it.

    Biker, I didn't even notice it was 187.

    Thank you for posting this retraction.

    I was speaking with Jim about it the other day, and was waiting to see if you would step up to the plate.

    Made Up

    I would venture a bet that there have been many such fabrications on this and other forums. Very few have actually owned up to it. That at least says something about your character.

    Apology accepted, but you may have to prove yourself for a while before the membership takes you at your word.

    Nashmack, if you don't mind me asking. How old are you?
    I'm not flaming or insinuating, I'm merely opining that younger members of boards and forums generally fabricate stories to compensate for real-life experiences. I've seen it a lot elsewhere and thus take anecdotal evidence online with no more than a pinch of salt.
    Good move admitting fault, not a lot of that around these days.

    EDIT: Your profile says 21, that explains it for me. Some people are mature at 21, other remain young at that age.

    I'm not so sure a mere "I'm sorry" is enough.

    You want to be congratulated for doing what you should have done in the first place, viz., tell the truth?


    Derek asked you why you did it. You owe a better response than what you gave.

    At least you had the gonads to admit it. Many don't.

    I would appreciate you not do that again. :scrutiny:

    Not that it really matters, but I'm the one that told Jim about the story.

    We both thought it strange that he had not heard anything about the incident when I told him. It was especially odd since many of the Manchester PD officers shoot at MFL regularly. He decided to check up on it, and could find no record of any such incident. He said he would contact you directly, and I said I would not take any action until he heard back from you.

    Making this story up was obviously a childish thing to do, made worse by the fact that Manchester is still trying to recover from the last such incident.

    Owning up to this took a lot of courage, but it will be a while before people will feel ready to fully trust you.

    Nashmack, thanks for your honesty. It's appreciated.

    Other members of THR, consider this. None of us likes being gulled: but Nashmack's done the honorable thing and owned up to it. Save the negative comments for those who gull us and don't own up! Let's give credit where credit is due. Nashmack, you'll have to re-build your reputation: but you've made a good start. Hopefully this experience will go on to influence your whole life, and you'll be a better person for it.

    It's easy to pig pile on him

    And a lot harder to forgive him.
    When I called BS on this-he didn't hesitate for a moment to come clean. I've met too many people in my life that never came clean when caught,and he did. No Police Department/Company or person is perfect-but you should see my parking lot when my alarm sounds :D Many Officers there are also considered friends.

    I feel good that I didn't take NashMack by the throat when I had him, twenty years ago it may have been different. I also believe that when he looked me in the eye and said "I f##d up" he understood how bad it was to lie. He is still welcome as a customer - and I found THR :D

    Doing the right thing always is.

    If 'taking the high road' was easy, we wouldn't have a forum named in the honor of that set of life choices.

    Wait. You mean you talked to him in person before he posted the apology?

    BTW, Jim, welcome to the High Road. Got any pinned and recessed 98% (or better) 629s/29s with four inch barrel for sale?

    I still thinks that he deserves some form of punishment. Since spankings over the internet are rarely performed and very difficult, perhaps an ammo fine is in order...I can provide the disposal methods and means if necessary. :neener:

    Oh, wicked, bad, naughty Zoot...um, Nashmack!

    I don't know Nashmack and I don't even know the thread he's referring to.

    What bothers me most is that a lot of people come here to be with friends. A lot of people come here to learn. It had never crossed my mind that someone would willfully come here and lie and deceive like you did.

    I find it disgusting.

    I believe Preacherman said it perfectly. Nashmack - you now have a reputation, but not one you, most likely, ever thought you would have. The re-building has begun.

    At least one postive thing has come of this. :)

    We all want to have good judgement. How do you get good judgment ? From experience. How do you get experience ? From bad judgement.

    The 2 most important things about making a mistake is 1) Admit it 2) Do not repeat it.

    Hello, Nashmack!

    On the proverbial "bright side," it's a lot more gruelling to live with a lie than admit it, make your apologies, and move on.

    You'll be all right in due time.
