    I am of course biased in this matter because with full disclosure, I am a Moderator here and of course I think this is the best forum ever! That being said, We have a lot of new members here and a lot of you who have been here much longer than me.

    I am interested in making sure that we are and continue to be the best forum ever! We have recently had many new women members this is very good for the shooting sport as a whole and we should be the leader bringing women into the fold and I know a lot of us have kids and family that enjoy the forum with us. It is my wish to make this a place for all!

    My question is, Do we have a good standard by which we the mods. and the members all adhere to for everyone to be able to enjoy the forum, the things I look at is, are we being fair, are we allowing enough conversation about all topics and still keeping a sense of common decency and respect for all members, are we having fun and still being respectful to all within the forum? I just really hope that all the members here can go to their Friends and family and say they enjoy this forum and would recommend that anyone they know would come here.

    I am posting this in hopes of the members giving me feedback to get any and all feedback to make this forum better , Good, Bad, or ugly and that we can take from this thread and make this forum better and keep doing the things we do that make it great as well! Thanks and I look forward to some great conversation.

    As many of you know, both my wife and I are members here. We think of this forum as kind of like family. We have had great conversations with members about all different topics, not only about Glocks. As this forum has grown, so has the diversity of its members. I am glad to see more ladies getting involved in the forum as well as the sport of shooting and wanting to learn more about being a responsible gun owners. To the guys, we should welcome them in and treat them with the respect they deserve and how you would like your wife or mother treated. Let us all make the effort needed to bring in new members and help them become a part of the family.

    I love it! I cannot complain at all!

    This forum does rock and I look forward to many, many more topics and discussions. The mods here are very fair and there has not been one thing they have done that I disagree with.

    I am glad you posted this BD. I am very bad with words and perhaps that's why I work with my hands for a living but you put my thoughts into a post. This thread you and Dutchs's post should be the intro for new members.

  7. I have no problems with the forum or the members. I really like the fact that the good majority of the people on here can have a good, educated, civil discussion with out being to tightly wrapped up in their beliefs and flying off the handle.

    All most at 10,000 members!

    Good post, Dutchs! As with any conversation, they sometimes have a tendency to get out of control. You fellas (and miss Donna) do a fine job of keeping things in check. Some things have reached the threshold but you always bring it back. That's a sign of a good forum.

    I can just say that I am impressed how involved the moderators are here. Typically conversations get out of control and there seems to be no oversight. Not sure how you all divvy up the duties but its working so good on you all!
    I'm new to this stuff so I take more info than I give but it is a great group and I would happily send my grandmother to this forum. Keep up the great work!

    I think this is a great place to fellowship with like minded folks. Male, female, white, black, red, brown, yellow, green-with-purple-polka dots...
