With you on location and purpose. We will see if we need to network. Would be nice to know and not need it, than need it and not know.

Use caution with Discord. The site is not private and the site is run by furry pedos. (Not kidding.)

I've been to one WI meetup but that was the before the purge some years ago. Doubtful any of those guys are still here. (Only member I can recall by name was the Dang! rootbeer guy.)

I guess it's time for me to join in and I can assure you that I am a good guy. Several of you know me and my loyalty and beliefs for the right side are beyond reproach. As someone mentioned before, we did have a, I guess you could call it a "welding party" a while back, and although I don't recall the specifics, evidently there was someone there that very well could have been a FED or informant, probably looking to see if this "welding party" was for the purpose of manufacturing guns, IDK, maybe some sort of AK build party?

Used to be.  Left ~7 years ago, got tired of the constant "Sorry, can't shoot today, LE has the range booked" hassles.  Plus that was all around the time that WE energies had the contractors (as I recall it) claiming they were getting peppered with shot from the shotgun fields.

Edit:  And more random memories (and trying to keep names straight).  Really the last thing I did with anybody on here was the RN3 shoot back in 2012.  jrpett, I think it was you who I was shooting next to with my braked CETME.  You were ... less than pleased  Kuraki, did you win a rifle at that shoot?  If so, we were sitting at the same table.

Yeah, it got to the point that a majority of the people attending weren't even ARFCOMMERS, got their free lunch and their raffle prizes, and then promptly left. Leaving Parruthead with $600 that he had to pay out of pocket for all the lunches.

You know, I really can't figure why so many people are getting spooled up about this interweb crap.  Seems to me the world still managed before it became so "necessary" to some.  I rarely go on FB and when I do it's usually for something concerning the grandkids.  And Twitter? never used it, never will.  I guess I just prefer the telephone.  Remember those?  Maybe I'm getting to the point where I just don't give a shit anymore.  I'll carry on as always and hope this country decides if they really like the commie way of life or if the country we grew up in is worth saving.  I hope I'm feeding the worms before the brown shirts come stomping around.  I just feel sorry for my kids and grandkids if things keep going downhill.

I don't see him post anymore and I've passed him in some of the facilities I service, as he worked for a company that was a vendor also at a few facilities I service. First time I met him, he came up and introduced himself to me at Cabela's in GB. I happened to have my BFL hat on.

Parrothead was his screen name. I believe he got sick a few years ago.

I hope he is well. I helped him out with a carpenter ant job on his house. Super nice guy.

I understand the sentiment, pull the plug and get on with life. But I also see the value of meeting new like minded folk and getting together for cheeky shenanigans being a positive thing. And who knows what the future holds. 10 years ago if you told me only half the shit that has taken place in 2020 I would have recommended you check in to Mendota.

I'd get along fine without the internet too.

But here's the thing.

It's not about you. Or me.

The internet is the single greatest tool that allows the largest amount of like minded people to organize and communicate in the shortest amount of time.

So when liberal/leftist/marxists organizations start targeting (eliminating) communication platforms dominated by conservatives, en masse and in tandem, you need to ask yourself why.

I seriously doubt they care about our mental health and want us to spend more time outside.

Whole new layout for the range now. Much better that it was before. Many new options for shooting there. I agree with Kuraki to come on down and check it out. Or PM me and I could use an excuse to burn through some $$$.(Shoot)

For a few years we had annual WI HTF fun shoots at Shiocton and then Shawano where we saw each other face to face but it became more of a burden than fun for the group organizing it so the events did not continue.

Gotcha.  I'm not saying the web is all bad, hell, I even order some stuff from Amazon & e-bay.  Just think that as the commies try and put the lid on us, there will be ways to carry on.  Things kind of have a way of working themselves out.  Hopefully this attempted "purge" of conservative views will come back and bite the socialists in the ass.  At some point, even the libs with a little common sense will begin to get concerned - at least I'd hope they will.  When they start clamping down on their own who are not radical enough for them, it'll be fun to watch the fur fly.

I'll be a Negative Nancy.
There's no practical way of truly vetting anybody. You could eat every Sunday dinner at someone's table and still not truly know them.
Every organization has "that guy" and, more than likely, 10 of "those guys" who would throw you under the bus for an atta boy from Uncle Sam.
Best just to know that every word you say (and some things you probably don't actually say) are going to be repeated out of context.
So don't say or do stupid stuff and you'll most likely be fine!

As Ayn Rand said "One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”

My question is, do you trust someone who you do not know, or have never met that encourages you to post offensive anti gov and pro gun memes to their phone?

I don't think anything posted here has ever been anti-gov't.  Anti-communist, anti-socialist sure.  If the day comes where the gov't ends up being socialist/communist, well, then yeah, I guess we'll ALL be anti-gov't.

Nah I'm with you on that. It's one thing to agree with someone politically, but if they're actively trying to get you to do something that seems fishy. Maybe it's because I would never encourage someone I don't know to do something.

My philosophy going forward is to be welcome everyone but trust no one. Someone posting anti-gov memes would be a red flag to me. By necessity relationships going forward will be based on mutual distrust. That can be a workable solution.
