    Guys - we are it seems heading for another mega thread!;)

    Do refresh now and again to a new thread and also - while no wish to interfere with interplay - Rallying Point is really primarily to serve as a place to fix up shoots and meets etc.

    There is, looking thru here - a distinct ''chat room'' thread running! I like social - don't get me wrong but - this is IMO at times exceeding the purpose of this forum. Some of this should by rights be in one of the gun discussions forums.

    If a lot of chat required then why not set up yourselves for MSN, AIM, whatever - I am just wanting for the forum to not have a perpetual weeks long duration simply for chat if possible. Note -

    P95Carry has pointed out that this thread is beginning to resemble the old one in form and function. In addition, only by the most liberal ( did I say LIBERAL? :what: ) interpretation of the expressed function could one say that this thread is following the "rules" and therefore this thread is beginning to resemble a "chat" thread.

    It appears to me that having a chat thread is useful and desirable so I have set up a "chat forum" for Northern Virginia at another location. This location is as follows: http://www.mrs-tech.net/nova . I don't know how well or even IF this will work out because THR provides so much more that anything I set up could or will. If you want to give it a try and have any problems please drop me an e-mail at [email protected]

    I do want to thank P95Carry and the others here at THR for at least having the courtesy of saying something instead of just shutting down the thread.

    +1 on the unwelcome mat

    seems we've run afoul of a mod. Let's chalk it up to more users driven from THR...

    I understand P95's concerns but don't really view this as a chat thread so much as it is a running commentary on our regularly scheduled meet ups.

    What we have instead are a running discussions on the date and locations of our next range meet, the guns that will be coming to a particular range meet, the types of targets we will be focusing on, humorous attempts to drive up attendance at the range meet, a follow up discussion on that range meet and the guns seen and shot, as well as some advice on similar types of guns that others might consider purchasing and bringing to the next meet.

    Throw in the occaision excuse for failing to show up to the range meet (or, in my case, much more than occaisional excuse) and I can't possibly see how we have violated any rules ;)

    WE SHOOT TO MUCH?

    The problem is we shoot at least once a week or more :neener: and we have at least 4 commercial ranges available.:D Most other threads shoot once a quarter or month.:eek: We only need to know who is going to show and what the theme of the soot is, magnum night, gun of the week [GOW], home defense practice, or personal carry practice.:cool: Also of course where to eat and talk.:cuss: If we put all of the dinner talk on the thread we would have a thousand replyes in a week.:cool: Other people need to practice and shoot more. :eek:

    My sentiments exactly. Just seems like the NoVA group is a victim of practicing too much. Honestly, I do see where some of our posts veer off but we the focal point is almost always around our next meet ... whether at the range, after-range dinner or at the next gun show. Seems perfectly compatible with the Rally Forum purpose.

    Yep.

    Perhaps, instead of punishing us The High Road ought to bestow upon us some sort of award as the most faithful defenders of the 2nd Amendment.

    No such thing


    Shooters at NRA HQ both tomorrow and Friday. After tonight's ride home, I'm not sure I'm willing to chance thanksgiving travel traffic tomorrow night.

    Sinsaba - your board is down 'mano.

    Sound off at bighammer.net, click the message board link (pop up alert).
    I have to make a decision on how many moon clips and magazines to load!

    Note, comments made earlier about the thread's purpose were essentially just that, comments and a request. The thread was NOT closed at that time.

    If however sarcasm is all that remains to be levelled at mod's (I assume in this case myself) then closure is obviously due. I am not a heavy-handed mod by any means and my ''leeway'', if that's what it has to be called, could well be excercized a lot more vigorously if I so chose.

    Snide remarks are not necessary or appreciated. Apologies to the rest of you.
