A "Member Since" date any earlier than 11/19/2000?

I remember some of the names and seems no-one I remember has an earlier date than that.

Are you one of the originals????

You probably won't believe this but the CHECK IS IN THE MAIL, and to prove this I will bring this back when the status changes. Hopefully Juan will be quick to activate once the check clears.

Five years (almost) and a thousand posts (almost). Most of my posts have come in the last 4 months. If I keep this up I AM buying a membership.

Sometime in 99, maybe 6-8 months before Y2K.

I remember belonging to an AR15 e-mail newsgroup long ago around 1996/97. I believe it was associated with this site. I was also on an M14/M1A list as well.

I have been going to this site off and on since at least 1997, when I bought my first few guns.

I've been around a lil while, but not near as long as some of you guys...

I originally joined when I was having problems with a Hesse AR15 and needed advice... The next one I had trouble with was a Professional Ordnance Carbon-15...

Imagine that.


I did have a membership for a year, but it expired this Summer. I don't spend near as much time here anymore, and couldn't justify spending the $60. (When my renewal was due, the site was having all kinds of problems.) I've since been considering sending in another 60 bux after seeing how much better the site has been the last few months...

I was lurking on the old board, I think since early 99. Always has been lots of interesting stuff on here.

Ahh the old board. Remember when this board was in Beta and on port 8888? Then the old board gave up and we all migrated to the beta before Goatboy set it up as the main board.

Started lurking in 1998 the year I built my house. Bought my AR-10 in 1999 and joined the board soon after IIRC. Planerench out.

The thing is if you read around the dates near the election of 2000 and I had hoped earlier the commonality of threads from then and now is amazing.

What is it about election years anyway???

Funny.... I don't see too many IBTL type posts there though....curious!

I remember when project AR15.com was initiated. Due to our inability to enact any kind of a nation wide gun registration, we encouraged gun owners to come register at internet gun sites. My team, along with several other teams of specialized ATF agents developed internet cells that would encourage the disclosure of firearms ownership. We started small with only a few gun boards, but as our success increased we branched out into several directions creating a number of specific gun boards to attract gun owners of every stripe.
We were supprised at the sheer magnituse of information that we were able to collect from unwitting "members", as they would often times provide a complete list of all personally owned firearms, often including pictures. The amount of data that we began recieving was difficult to store and sort, but yet another team was developed for this purpose alone. By this time our budget had increased exponentially.
Thanks to the participation of the "members" of this gun board and others, we have been able to aquire psychological profiles of some of the suspects we had, as a team "red flagged" as potential problems in the future.
The pure irony of gun owners voluntarily participating in our project, while at the same time decrying any attempt at Federal gun registration was amusing to us here at the agency.

Keep up the good work and forget I posted this. We know you will.

I started reading the old board in late '97 when I was researching AR rifles before I bought my first one, and joined around the first part of '98 - registering for anything on the internet was a big deal.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 3:32:02 PM EST
I was around for a few years under a different name and I never was a paying member the whole time. I used the site for information on ARs only and never felt the need to ask questions too much becasue all of the answers were already here for the reading. One day I suggested that someone manufacture 10-round .50 Beowulf magazines as a loophole for legally buying Post-ban 30-round .223 mags, and I was branded a TROLL by a guy named SHIVAN. I had a very low post count, and never got the posts up past 50 or so. At the time I took offense, but now that I've been around for a while I now realize why he felt that way. If any of you guys can figure out what my screen name was, there's a prize for you!
