I left after the entire board began to
implode with the B.O.I., and closed door

Now AW.N is down for good, it seems. Do
we have any other AW.N refugees here?

(in a sense, this is a homecoming for me,
since my first gunboard was the OLD AR15.com
back in 1999)

I heard over at A Well Regulated Militia that AssWeb was changing servers.  They had a temporary URL set up.  I stop by there every now and then but the site is pretty much worthless.  There is very little valuable info and a bunch of jackass moderators.

I believe that even the mention of this site will get you banned.  Nice bunch- afraid of words and divergent beliefs . . .

I really don't have a problem with AssaultWed. I do try to stay away from the General Discussion section. The only sections I really look at is Battle Rifles, AR, Gear Accesories section.

Everything's offline for me, no home page, no gd , nothing as of this post.
There was a post this am about server maint but I would think that things would be back online or at least a greeting page would appear that said that the site was down for maint. Just have to wait & see. I would imagine some here have the private emails of some of the admins or mods there and could post info if it were available.

They're probably having a secret BOI meeting and forgot to turn things back on....

So, is there anyone here left over
from the early AR15.com back in 1999?
Link Posted: 5/31/2002 7:28:30 PM EDT
I was a member of the "old" ar15.com in '99
Drifted over to assweb since their were quite a few more locals their than here.Calling here home again tho'. Stil post on AW.net but things have gotten really  "tin-foilish" over there if ya know what I mean.

IS that what happened to Belloc the rightious? I never went there except once quite a while back and it made me see why Christianity has had their own knocks about being as bad as the extremist muslims.

well, I'm gettin AW.N now, guess it wasn't due to the vast tin foil conspiracy after all. [argue]
Now the games resume @ AW.n

There are some really nice folks over at Assault Web, and if you stay in the GUN forums, lots of good info. The General Discussion is where the sh** happens.  I'm sure I don't fit the mold of what the board founders expect, but then again I don't make it a point to let 'em know that on a daily basis, so I've never had a problem there.

There are a lot of good folks over there,  shoot with a bunch of them on a regular basis.  I think the current goings on are an attempt to regain some measure of quality the board had before the "Whack Jobs" ran rampant. I really hope the old AW.N comes back.  BTW:  AW.N was the first gun board and chat room I ever found, immediately followed by this one.  Memory is hazy, but I think that was 1997/98. My list of  suppliers, contacts and such come from this board. Especially the reloading stuff.

I've been here since day one. Quit Assault Web due to a lack of ... manners I guess. Was on Mike Reagan's 2nd Amendment Board before he removed it in '97 or so.
