Having been to two shoots now associated with this board I've heard a few members say things like, "Oh I stay in the technical forums. I try not to go in that General Discussion forum, it's a waste of time. A total soap opera." To those members who refer to GD with veiled or unveiled distain, I say this - I am not an expert on weapons. There is not much, if anything, that I could teach any of you about firearms. But I do enjoy shooting and, with the exception of a few local shooters that I talk to, this forum is my only link and interaction with the shooting community. I do read posts on the technical forums to learn but there is nothing I can add there. GD is where I contribute.. even if it is only sarcastic and mildly witty banter. [;)] Just wanted to get that off my chest and let y'all know that I appreciate you. [:D] [img]http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1069148&a=12667483&p=47017417&Sequence=0&res=high[/img]

Hey MM - that takes some nerve posting that picture of a FAL on the AR board!! I was there for that conversation as well, but understand a bit of where it's coming from. The other forums (Tactics & Training, Reloading, etc.) have a higher practical information vs. static ratio, but may not be as "wide open" as here. They all have their place. I guess it's all a matter of what you're looking for. I can see how some would think this place is a soap opera! Any you, young lady - what are you thinking posting a picture of yourself in this high-testoerone zone?? I shudder to think of the e-mails you're going to get the next few days :). Black Fox

There had been a thread about posting pics with your ARs... had quite a few responses and it was nice to put a face with the name. I believe there was also a request for a pic of myself... if nothing else, it'll give Anti an idea of what he's up against if he wants to "handle" anything on my chest. [;)]
Link Posted: 4/26/2001 7:50:57 AM EST
Nice post M.M. I think there's quite a few here who really enjoy the usually respectful discussions that go on here. Barring the internet-moron factor, there's enough of us left to give some meaning to the G.D. forum. I'm staying too.[;)]

I would like to add, as much as I like AR's, it is fun to talk about other stuff. I find the members much more interesting than my colleagues at work. You go, girl. I also agree it is interesting to put faces to names. On GD, I find it is often easier to get answers on a specific topic because GD has more visitors. [smoke] Only 36 hours to the weekend!

Pretty smile. Very pretty indeed. (man I better get a date soon, I'm hitting on women on the net.) BTW, what type FAL is that.
Link Posted: 4/26/2001 8:08:04 AM EST
That photo must have been taken during the 5 minutes of overcast sky that we had. My sunburn proves that it wasn't that way the whole time. Perhaps, my sunburn is really a car fire burn?! It was a good time! Still have lots of weapons to clean!

See? Now you ask me something technical. This is actually Ross's FAL... but I think I am becoming sentimentally attached to it (awwwww). From what he explained, there are two kinds of FAL.. this one is NOT metric... Poodleshooter had a metric FAL there, I believe. Like I said... [i]learning[/i]... I'm [i]learning[/i]... [:D]

I think its great to hear and see what women think of the shooting sports...i know i got my AR about 4 weeks ago and my wife drove me crazy to shoot it so I finally took her and she loves it but of course she just loves to shoot period it does'nt matter what we are shooting.... NightRanger

Right by Miss Magnum's elbow you can see one of the 1919's (I think 3 were there). Above that, pointing at the back of the knee of the guy with the orange shirt, you can see the M2HB's .50 cal barrel.
Link Posted: 4/26/2001 8:15:33 AM EST
"Marriage proposals" - So true too. I was lucky enough to see that picture earlier this week. I got my proposal in then. (She hasn't gotten back with me though - I think she's waiting on an email from Imbroglio....) As I told MM, the biggest issue is figuring out a way to survive the ten .40 caliber holes my wife would put in my back on the way out. You're looking good Miss Magnum!!!

Hey, you're right. There are guns and even other people in that picture. I hadn't noticed at first.

You just gotta love the "women with firearms" bit (even if it IS a FAL). Where was this shoot at? Nice photo Magnum.

Hey, nice pic... Girls who like Guns, that's the kind of G/F I need!

Hi! I am a single male that likes long walks and picnics in the park. I also like romantic candlelight dinners. Unfortunately, I have come to a critical juncture in my life where I am unsure of my hoplophobia and need a special womenz to caringly help me to the try to steer me back onto to the right path.

You guys will have to speak up - I still haven't regained my hearing from the 50's last weekend :) :) :) (or my big grin!). Now see what you started Miss Magnum?!? What's the count on marriage proposals so far?? You guys crack me up. Black Fox
Link Posted: 4/26/2001 10:40:25 AM EST
MM, Nice post. I agree; for all the junk, there's some good quality. It's just like anything else and I think the board is bigger than the old one so there just [i]seems[/i] to be a lot of crap- it's all relative. Of course, I sometimes help contribute to the "crap", but we're not talking about that. BTW: We haven't shot in a month- if you want to go with us, we're shooting Sunday and IDPA is this week.
Link Posted: 4/26/2001 10:42:16 AM EST
Fox, No marriage proposals yet... But I would be receptive to cans of .308 ammo, .45, 9mm, .223 or .41 magnum.... ::evil grin:: I appreciate the compliments but that sincerely was not my intention. Others have posted pics here of themselves with their weapons and I reciprocated. But I know y'all are going to do whatever you dang well want to anyway!! [:D]

Not to rain on anyones parade, but there is noting like a rebel flag on the back of a Toyota pick up truck...... Sorry to bring up some thing negative on an otherwise positive post.

Nothing, I admire beautiful women who own guns. You, however, admire beautiful women who own guns, beautiful women who don't own guns, women who exist, period. Also nothing wrong with that, but when you are throwing yourself bodily upon them(in a virtual sense, providing every woman who visits the board with personals ad qualifies), and then whining because none of them like you, we can tell that it's an act. You have in the past, in your more serious moments, shown yourself to be intelligent, well infomed about friearms, and a likeable guy, but this facade where you whine about having no "womenz", no money and only a 10/22 and a .38 is getting irritating. Get over the alter ego, and show this board the real Imbrog|io, the one who knows what Gun Scrubber does to Trijicons, not the one who complains about never having had a date... Geesh, at least I separate my humorous internet personality from my serious, actual persona, that way I can as a question, or make a statement, and be taken seriously. I'm not saying humor isn't appropriate, but this is a bit ridiculous. Again, no flame, but think it over.

A facade huh? I have no gf, I am damn poor, and I only do have 2 guns. The only thing I do have left is that I can laugh about it but you want to take that away from me too. What the hell do you want me to do? Hey if you want to send me a woman, money and guns then my problems would be solved. You don't even know the hell I went through in high school. My so-called "friend" since 3rd grade found himself a gf as a sophomore in hs then all of a suddend I did not exist. I never went to any dances, I never went to any school sports. I was always shunned at school. I don't know why, maybe because I am so damned ugly. I went to college and of course that was just more of the same. I tried online dating crap and got zilch. My new "friends" then started saying crap that I was gay or something because they were getting women left and right off of the same service. What exciting things did I do after that? Things like watching t.v. for hours and going to the movies by myself. Ya a real exciting life. And now I have a crappy job that I know that I am going to lose in June. I am sorry that my life is not as perfect as yours. I have nothing else but this damn forum otherwise I would have no one else to talk to. You know what I have to look forward to in life? Absolutely nothing.

OK, OK, I'm sorry. I still am not sure that I believe your story, but I'm not saying that you are a crummy person if your life is horrible, only that I'm not sure that it is as horrible as you say. You know too much about firearms(and your revolver went from Rossi to Taurus and back), and have too good of a digital camera for it to wash with me. The women part I don't know about, but somehow...I don't know. Ok, peace? I wasn't knocking your purportedly tragic existance. If it really is that bad for you, I feel sorry for you.

I think most women like guns and just don't know it. Every gal I know used to hate guns, until I took them shooting. Or should I say watch them shoot, coudn't get my guns back after they got a hold on them!
