SailFree, Heinlein would have said the same thing in prose that read and sounded more like Ernest Hemingway and less like James Joyce. ;-) But IMHO he would have agreed completely with what Stapleton said.

As long as James continues to moderate, I can't see that happening here. The worst that could happen would be new users would have to write a little note to the moderator in order to join.

(*Mental image of Jim sitting on porch with shotgun*) No... me neither...

<chuckle> Yeah, I could definitely see Jim having a shotgun and knowing what to do with it.

Shotguns. :roll: I had shotguns protecting the old NitroForum and the sneaky Rooskies just walked right through 'em.

Now I use a pair of these:

...and it's MIGHTY quiet around here.

Post Re: 3000 posts
The place that SailFree is referencing was a nice little forum/chat room, but it was one of the last to use open posting. It was prone to garbage at any time and then was completely overrun. One day, it just wasn't there any more, although the shell site survives, inlcluding the link to the forum.

The proprietor was kind of odd - cared enough about Heinlein to set the place up and do a nice job of it, then was sort of never heard from again. I pinged him several times on various points and never received a reply. Neither, apparently, did any of the regular participants in the forum. I'm not sure why he's never touched up the site, taken it down, or answered any inquiries.

Is that a fully automatic rifle? Ni-ice. ;-)

I bashed up my shoulder and arm quite a bit a couple of weeks ago out in BLM land shooting our new Mossberg 500 at bottles of water and various sorts of non-formal targets. Darned thing has a stock too long for me; I think it was designed for 6' males. We're looking at getting an adjustable stock/recoil absorbing stock for it.

It's mostly for my husband; he likes his toys and I figure that this one can be justified as home defense too. ;-)

Hey, Jim, those the same guns you use to chase off the boys after your female offspring?

SIG550 - literally the Swiss Watch of assault rifles. (No, I don't actually have one. Or two. The semi-auto model runs about $8,000 when you can find one.)

And no, RJ, assault rifles don't work against teen boys. You need something... more substantial.
