Someone in jest mentioned this place becoming like graybeard outdoors. That place looks like it’s on life support. And has been dying for a few years. Not much happening their to keep the attention. What’s your experience been in that site?

Never heard of it. Maybe that's their problem.


There were 2.1 homicides per 100,000 people in counties voting Republican. There were 13.2 in counties voting Democrat. Control Democrats, not guns.

Was an ok site many years ago, but was bought out, along with many others, by anti 2nd amendment interests. Should be avoided.


Imagine your grave on a windy winter night. You've been dead for 70 years.
It's been 50 since a visitor last paused at your tombstone.....
Now explain why you're in a pissy mood today.

The moderation was brutal, owner Bill must sit on his keyboard anxiously waiting for a rulebreaker. His classifieds rules were pure comedy.

It is a good place to trade T/C stuff.

This place is a breath of fresh air.

I look at Graybeard Outdoors every now and then, it's a good place if you are into single shot rifles like the TC and Handi Rifles. Outside of that, I agree it is on life support form what is was a few years ago. You think it's bad though, try Hunttalk.com, that place is really on life support. I can go weeks without looking at either site and catch up in just a matter of minutes when I do go back to them.

I was a big member of Graybeard for years. And then, it was about 10 years ago, I got fed up with them, wrote them a nice "goodbye" post and they have never seen me since.
Someone said they were "overmoderating." I think that was the problem I think it was Mr. Graybeard himself I had some run ins with.
They used to be a good web site.

Been a member there for years. I visit the forum daily for a few minutes checking the Contender classifieds forum and the political forum. There are some good characters there and the interaction there isn't as brutal as it can be here on the "Fire". As far as moderating goes I am amazed about how close a tab they are able to keep on both the classifieds and the rest of the forum. That said yes the traffic is down there as it is on this forum. Moderating is a part of it but in general I feel we are an aging group and prefer to actually reload and shoot, run the dogs and the grandkids, fish and watch TV or any other thing that is interesting enough to pay attention to. I would just about bet the average age on the hunting/shooting forums is reaching 60 and by now most of us already know what we need to know about shooting. Most of us have already done a lot of hunting too. As for the new cartridges so what? My 270, 7x57 and 30-06 were more than acceptable at the tasks I put them to and I don't need a high BC bullet 6.5 to shoot at animals 600 yards away because I don't do that sort of thing. Possibly some don't participate in these kind of forums because they don't want their gun interests exposed on the internet.

Bravo

There is only one decent outdoors site on the 'net. And anyone reading this obviously knows where it is.

Accurate reloading is as bad as Greybeard. Years ago a guide in Argentina made the proclamation that the members of AR could not shoot. "You guys can't shoot", and then went on to expound on how many of his clients had missed shots, made poor shots, or not taken shots at stag.

I responded that a hunter does not need anyone holding him by the hand and pointing to game animals, nor does a marksman need coached through a shot.

I did not get kicked off, but I surely was.not very popular after. And I soon abandoned the place altogether.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

You are allowed to post only if he fully agrees with what is posted. I left there long ago.

Have not looked on that site for at least 2 years, maybe I should go see if anything has changed.

15 years ago Graybeards banned me for putting too much Unique in 45/70 handi rifle.
I'm sure they made the right decision.

I was on that forum for years, mostly as a lurker. After the buyout, I left. IMR the are owned by a Toronto company that is pushing a serious anti-gun agenda.

I think the same outfit also owns trapshooters.com, which seems to be moderated by the soup Nazi or someone.

I was a member there ,a couple of years ago the look of it changed and they made me change my password and I forgot it. Didn't care enough to reset it. Greybeard controlled it too much based on his opinion. Like everyone his opinion was wrong a lot.He wouldn't let people discuss things freely. I got tired of it. Lots of differing opinions here too but here you aren't banned or threatened by administrators for voicing an opinion.

Still am a member there, although half the time I have to reset my password as I forget it. Go on once in a while to look at a couple of specific items. Low traffic there.

Around 2002-2003ish I volunteered to moderate a forum there, I think it was the medium bore rifle forum. To my surprise, I was given the job.

At the time the entire forum was very heavily moderated. I never took a single action as moderator and just let the chips fall where they may. In fact, I even stopped posting and just lurked occasionally. Several remarks were made about the freedom in that particular forum at times due to lack of moderation. Eventually, I lost all interest there having discovered 24hr Campfire and quit logging in at all. After what may have been a couple years later, I received a scathing email from Bill informing me of the un-moderated arguments ensuing in my assigned forum followed by a terse notice that I was fired as moderator. grin
