Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

So long folks

I have to say SWT's post was pretty refreshing especially if it was sincere. Many of us have a bad experience with someone here and it goes back and forth. Some times we are right and other times wrong. Often times when someone points out a shortcoming a lesson can be learned from it. I have noticed that a couple of the newer mods seem to have attitude which can be counter productive to gaining respect. In all fairness even a great mod like Cal Hunter probably had his day in the beginning. I am willing to bet the newer mods will either learn to be the best they can be or HNI will cast them off like a pair of dirty socks.
Stay the course SB....running away from adversity won't suit you.

I've got more important things to do in my life than become obsessed with having to "win" an argument on here...
Yep, some people just don't get it. This is good advice. Nothing on any forum I've been on is worth getting your blood pressure up for. Sometimes I just walk away.

Hey Neil, I really hope you'll stick around. You are a valuable member of this forum and I've greatly enjoyed and appreciated your contributions. I see that SWThomas has extended an olive branch to you. Why not take it? If, in the future your fears are realized, you can always quit then.

Out of curiosity, what do you do to become a mod around here? I'd like to know the criteria for the mod selection process.

Mike

Hey mods we have a person who wants to migrate to the darkside. He is from Coralville (Iowa City) home of Custom Jig and Spin my favorite ice fishing jig maker and about halfway from Vt to my hunting spot in Co. I stay there often and the people are great. He might be a good candidate. Mmmmmmmm Texas Road House.

There's a custom ice fishing jig maker in Iowa City? Really? That's funny, since I've never once seen anyone ice fishing on the Coralville Reservoir or Lake MacBride. I should tell my brother.

But hey, if they want to make me a mod, what the heck. I'm game. Look at the bright side, I'm more qualified to be a mod on this forum than our current president is to be town dogcatcher. I'd do a better job, too. And I won't tax your hard earned healthcare benefits... I'm driftrider, and I approved this message...

As a newer guy on this forum I would like to say I enjoy reading your post, and it didn't take long for you to gain my respect. I would really hate to see you leave. Looking forward to reading your post soon!!!
