Disclaimer: I am not in any way being compensated by the vendors offering 5% THR discount - Just a customer who has bought their products over the years. My retirement is less than 2 years away and cleaning out the house for anticipated sale and relocation (we'll be looking to buy our retirement house starting this winter). Instead of putting items on Craigslist, I thought about starting a new PIF thread. As many of you know already, I am a supporter of blarby's "Pay It Forward" thread - http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=698208 So to thank THR for a forum to let me vent my work stress away (and not on my wife), to thank the many contributing members who chose to support THR, to thank the vendors who offer THR discount and to thank the members who support these vendors, I thought we could use some diversion in the Handloading and Reloading forum category. Here's it goes: - I will post up items to PIF (members are free to post and offer items) - Contributing THR members are eligible to participate (You can become a contributing member to support THR by paying $25/year which will remove annoying ads and gain other benefits- http://www.thehighroad.org/payments.php - THR members who participate in the "Pay it forward" thread are eligible to participate (We will use the honor system for gifters and not recipients of PIF) - http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=698208 - Regular THR members can participate by making a purchase from vendors offering 5% THR discount and let them know by adding your THR name/ID in the order comment box - Make your participation known for the item by replying for the item followed by eligibility (Example: "Check weights - contributing member" or "RCBS universal trimmer - Purchased from Dardas/MBC/RMR and purchase date) - If no member replies for the posted item, the ending date will automatically reset to the following Sunday and continue until a member replies for the item. - A random member will be selected from the participation responses (blarby/rcmodel will make the random selection and me by default if they are not available or if they want to participate for a particular item). - Once the selected member PMs the address to the poster, poster will pay-it-forward the item and also cover the shipping cost in the spirit of PIF If you post a PIF item, set an ending date for your item and post a picture if you can. I would suggest at least 2 weeks, preferrably a month so other members who do not log into THR as frequently could have the opportunity to see the offered PIF items and check on Sunday nights (when most members are not working and likely to be home) to see if they were selected for the item. I will start with several items to "seed" the thread but hoping that others, who while doing some house cleaning, will find unwanted items to post on this thread. I hope this thread will encourage more to become contributing members to support THR and help vendors keep offering THR discounts (and perhaps more vendors will join) to help all of us reloaders. BTW, following vendors offer 5% THR discount (RMR requires your THR name/ID in the order comment box for the discount): Dardas Cast Bullets with HIGHROAD promo code - http://www.dardascastbullets.com/mm...GY&Store_Code=dardas&Category_Code=OURBULLETS Missouri Bullet Company with THR-Original promo code - http://www.missouribullet.com/pricing.php Rocky Mountain Reloading with thehighroad5 promo code - http://www.shop.rmrbullets.com/ OpticsPlanet on $50+ orders with THRFORUM discount code - http://www.opticsplanet.com/ I thak you all in advance for your generosity and support!
