Enough to get more mods interested in starting up a gun forum!

I totally agree that poor communication was a huge problem. That said, I don't think Steve was "very active" on the camping site. I think a handful of posts were made under his login, which he later explained were made by another person he had working on that site. While people had a legitimate gripe about not getting their cards and paperwork, I thought the camping site thing was blown WAY out of proportion.


Communication (both with the mods and the members) was and still IS a problem - for example, it would have been a simple thing to ask for a direct answer - but that answer was continuously sidestepped or ignored. (what was asked is irrelevant)

"someone else" using his login to work on the other site?... then why not have had that other person logging in HERE ? Just doesn't ring true to me. and again, I get the desire to "play with the new toy" and let the old one (LIF) gather dust and rot.

I actually find the tone of discussions much more acceptable here since a bunch of a..holes went to the other site. Last week I was browsing a topic there, left a browser window open, my kids use my iphone on a regular basis, they were stunned by the lingo used ... It turns out none other than the moderator told a member (who was voicing his opinion in a respectful manner) to shut the f..k up with that sh.t.

I've noticed that people who have not donated to this site are telling other people what to do. Seems weird to me.

I agree. As long as Destro is here the place still has some life.


Don't forget me.

just wait till your kids discover they can find porn on the internet. A couple of words that's kids say all the time won't mean so much then.

and if you go to that other site you will see I don't post and I don't like the bull **** there so I left. And I will most likely leave here to.

If you look at the membership roster there you will find someone who has an avatar with a screen name Mad Russian with the words "is an ahole" under it. What's up with that?

he's calling himself an ahole?

what's the big deal?

irony that you quote a post with ahole in it while having an issue with it.

for the people citing how much money was paid for nyfirearms.....that site always struck me as much larger in scale than LIF in it's prime, and definitely larger than longislandgunclub.

this place is a bit sideways at the moment. it may come back. it may not. no matter what i know i'll still be bugging destro about bbq, talking about racing with dank whenever he comes in to pick something up, trading transfers for health food with the dude sitting on a tree, and slinging shingles with a smile.

NY firearms is a statewide forum. LIF is a regional forum. It would reason that they would be bigger, especially if you don't count the inflated membership numbers here.

LIG is still in it's infancy. But it is still a regional forum. To expect it to gather the same membership numbers is expecting too much.

OK that's awesome.

Seriously, hang that in the store. As a matter of fact, bring that down to Ripped LB to show those guys what is possible clean eating and no crazy supplements.

exactly the point i was trying to prove, but was too clumsy/tired to.

I highly doubt the mods at LIG are building it to sell it. Can't get enough critical mass to sell for a big figure, and also these are the guys we see at matches every weekend. They're not the type of guys to put their name on the line and then reneg on it.
