    Stumbled on it doing a Google search. most the forums I've seen before like to deal in one type of shooting or people that all use the same brand/type firearms. I have been looking for a place that dealt with a lot of different types and names. I own several handguns and a few long guns and at one time or another want to talk about any of them. This forum allows me to do that without logging into several at once..lol

    I'm still real new here but the place seems a pretty good one

    Google. I was looking for a place to waste my time at night. I love talking about firearms. I own several of them. Its kind of a hobby of mine. This is a cool place to hang out. I hope to kill many a shift looking on here.

    Stumbled Upon it. Really. Stumble Upon

    It's a Firefox extension. Someone rated the forum which means everybody who has Stumble Upon and has "guns" as a topic will eventually find their way here. I've found a lot of neat sites I never knew existed this way. Check it out.

    Now if I could find a way to manage my bookmarks to keep track of all this stuff.

    More "Stumblers" will follow me.

    A buddy of mine on a forum completely unrelated to guns/rifles mentioned this forum. We tried to start a discussion over on that forum, but the people there really had no clue what they were talking about, OR they have been watching too many movies!

    Anyway, there is that...

    Ciao, CZ

    OK, I have been avoiding this poll because my response wasn't on the list. But since it keeps popping up, I'm starting to feel bad so here it is...

    I answered 'other'. I was referred here by Bl7205 when I was looking for a good source of gun information. And I am so glad I listened to him. Thanks bl7205!

    I have that FF extension too. I have "stumbled on a bunch of pretty neat places. Being a "computer guy" I learned years ago that Internet Explorer is about as useless as a liberal at an NRA meeting

    Seriously, if anyone is using their computer for any type of secure things like E-shopping etc should NEVER use IE. The security flaws are everywhere and even clearing your IE cache can keep you as safe as you should be. There's a world full of teenagers with too much free time that can do a lot of bad things to you. A free download of Mozilla Firefox can save a lot of headache.
