If we have a discord going, can someone PM me the link too?

Thanks!

87, naturally

Whereabouts in the state are you?  I think we have pretty good coverage of most of the state across a couple of repeater networks.  If you look at the FM38 repeater network http://www.fm38.org/HomePage can you hit one of the local repeaters for it?  Obviously if you have HF capabilities it's a lot easier (I think there's a standing arfnet) but if you're limited to 2m/70cm like me (for now), I think the repeater networks are our best bet.

I am willing to have book club meetings at my shop to vetted members.  North of Milwaukee about 15minutes.

I'll look into the discord thing later today.

Another member and I went to a local meetup for people that want to network and start taking political action but it was cancelled due to "threats against the establishment that was hosting it" (that is as clear of an explanation as we got when we showed up).  We have to be very careful in establishing a vetting sequence prior to setting up physical meetings.

We just want to talk to each other; the crazies want us fired, dead, or in jail.  PERSEC, PERSEC, PERSEC right now.

Several years back there was a welding class in Milwaukee at the soda king’s shop.
A guy who wasn’t a member, so he didn’t sign up showed up, and left after a while.
It was suspected that he was with the ATF.

So how do we go about vetting people? Some years ago I had thought of having a meet and great but just couldn't work out the details.

Yeah, it's a short term solution in case Arfcom goes down in the near future. We can always find an alternative later on.

We can start with who knows whom.  I know membership has changed over the years (hell I haven't been active for years until the last several months) but many of us have met each other in the meatspace and can vouch for each other that at least I'm not going to get the copper wiring and scrap metal stolen from my shop.

Besides, I'm talking about an actual book club where we can start reading everything from Sowell to Von Clausewitz to Hayek so about the worst that can happen is we teach a glowboi about how currency works.

That might work for some, but full disclosure I don't know any of you folks. I've exchanged a few PMs but none of you would recognize me in a crowd and vice versa. It's always a balancing act trying to get the word out to as many as possible while still keeping it on a need to know basis

It's a shame that stories like this must be considered in order to even get together and discuss things.
So as far as "vetting" as well as setting up any type of getting together, it would be very wise to do so. And we have to have our collective shit together.

That’s my problem too, and as much as I know vetting has to take place it’s probably going to mean I’m “out”.  Doubt anybody here knows me or remembers meeting up with me save for a few FTF EE deals or what must have been like the 2012 Roasted Nuts shoot.  I never made it a priority to network when I should have, and now it’s in to “too little, too late” territory.

Roasted Nuts shoots are a pretty good start.  I've got plenty of pictures from at least one of those and a zombie shoot up at Shawano as well.

Maybe classes we've taken?  Keep the ideas coming.

Hey now, I may or may not resemble that remark.

working 2nd shift and pulling on-call duty for the past 25 years has kept me pretty much a loner. But hey my wife and dogs love me.

Did meet a couple of members at a gunshow last Oct and had a good time.

Have dealt with a couple of other well respected members here over the years, both have been to my home and I to theirs.
One once a regular in the Wi HTF has been absent since the dust up over the banning of a WI member several years ago.
The other only posts infrequently now days.

Interested. In Milwaukee area. I think the only way we know is if we have someone vouch for each other.


I was looking at LiberalGuns at Reddit and there were a lot of people who carried multiple patches for their carrier so they could blend in if needed. I'm not afraid of that, but it's not out of the realm that someone wearing a Gadsden flag and carrying a nice AR is not who you think they are. I think vouching for each other is the only way.
