Welcome to The Gun Counter. We are an online community where civility is a good idea, seeing as most of us are armed. Discussions can be on most any topic and will often include guns, gear, freedom, and very personal issues.
This community formed in the early mists of the internet at what eventually became gunthing.com. We have been through many iterations and host platforms, but have managed to maintain a core group of several hundred contributing members.
Several moderators from a former incarnation, CombatController, 308Mike, and Randy; have opened theguncounter.com as a new community site, forum, and wiki. Whether you are a newbie to the gun owning world, shopping for a new house because your gun collection has outgrown your current one, a lover of Liberty American style or just a curmudgeonly person who feels at home with us other crusty people; welcome. We have some pretty simple rules to follow. Please understand that we don’t banhammer often (except for obvious troll), but when we do it is permanent.
The tenor of the site is to have civil conversations regarding anything that might come up while talking amongst ourselves sidled up to the counter at the gun store. If you could see yourself discussing a topic with the sales person at your favorite MOD or one of the other clients, it is mostly likely just fine here. The same thing with language, if you would not be asked to leave the store it will most likely fly here. For those who are really dense, extolling the virtues of communism or the Brady campaign will NOT be welcome. Hopefully that gives a clue as to some hard boundaries.
Also realize that we argue. Sometimes it is in good natured fun, sometimes it is serious stuff; but we are always asked to argue the issue not take personal shots at our friends. We are all friends here (or at least friendly / cordial) as one should be; both because that is how polite society works and because an armed society is a polite society.
Welcome to our little corner of the internet. Become a member and enjoy the fellowship.
This is my attempt at a new intro. Feel free to adjust, critique or adopt whole.
