I was trying to sign up at the site and I only have gmail accounts - which are not allowed :confused::confused::confused:

What kinda goofy $hit is that...?

Was going to post or message this guy... but I guess not... :(

Be careful what you wish for. While having lots of members is nice from a variety standpoint, it also comes with all the (rational or otherwise) opinions and "first hand knowledge" from every Super Awesome Joe wannabe drive-by-ing your threads, the product and manufacturer fanboys ("it's made by HK, therefore it is infinity superior to everything else on the planet"), and the sassy young pups whose contributions are pretty much limited to foul language and butt hurt when you point out how little they actually know.

I'm a member over at arf, but only get over there about once a week or so. I really don't much care for their formatting (way clunky IMO) and I can't really find anything that interests me outside the piston section. Is there a ACR section there somewhere I haven't taken the time to try to go mining for? If there is, maybe we could draw some good folks looking for more easy going conversation in a much friendlier web format over this way...

Your right on the money there Dan....

A couple other forums I attend (non gun related) are rather large and boy do the tool bags come out of the woodwork on a regular basis, makes for nothing but a huge bickerfest constantly.
Fanboys.... gotta love em...

I really like the cozy nature of this forum, its nice to get adult education, without all the poo slinging....

There is a bushmaster forum in the industry section where the acr is discussed, but it doesn't get much traffic, maybe a few post a day or so

I am also a member of ar15.com but often find myself primarily using the site for the equipment exchange.

I'm with Dan, though there are some good guys with good posts, there are far too many couch commandos with "itchy key board fingers".
As this site grows in members it builds a closer knit community with quality information that anyone could benefit from.

just me 2 cents

That's probably due to the Internet Fuckwad Theory. Normal Person + Anonymity + Audience = Internet Fuckwad. The bigger the audience, the bigger the fuckwad.

I also want to focus a certain level of hate on games like "Battlefield of Duty: Medal of Warfare". I don't know if these kids join forums because they think they're now experts on all weapons ever invented because they are 7-star Master Sergeant General Chief on their 50th prestige run or if they join with the intent to learn about their favorite in-game weapons but can't sit back and shut up long enough to learn anything.

Yeah the gaming industry does a great job in provide a peek into the current firearm industry. The problem of course is the uneducated group (from all ages) that think that their gaming experience provides traning in firearm proficiency...very dangerous. Point is made by simply taking a good look at the "red flag" users at a few local ranges. This is the very reason I keep my sidearm strongside when checking targets downrange.

And why is it those folks are always at the range when I go? Almost every flipping time. Yes, it's an ACR. No, I haven't played Call of Duty. Shoo fly, don't bother me.
