Hey guys, I started a Facebook page several years ago in support of this group. I have about 200 folks on the page now and several new members that are trying to get added to the forum and also purchase a membership. Can anyone advise as to the status of the group after Doug's passing? There is so much information they can glean from this group I know they would join. Any help appreciated

Status? The group is healthy and self-policing.
We seem to be Ladies and Gentlemen.

You can not do more than that at the present time

Hope this helps

Mike

I sure do like the ones that I have Smile

Yes sir, bought an over and under that matches the double gun. Both are fine guns. I have really enjoyed them. I have a guy on the Face Book side who is trying to join, looking for load info for 16 ga 2 1/2". See below.

Edwin Quiñones-Señeriz Thanks for posting that. I'm one who submitted a registration earlier this week. My condolences to the owner's family and friends.

I really hated to hear of Doug's passing, he was a good man and a wonderful advocate for the "Gentlemen's Gun".

It took a while for my request to be processed. The administrator has a life other than this and, being impatient, I reminded myself of this. Eventually, I was accepted. It also helped to remind myself that nothing I wanted to know was either life threatening or demanded an immediate answer.

Yes, thanks guys - I do go through and add the new members every few weeks. Sometimes if I am busy with my regular job or family duties it might take me a little longer to get to it. I have to go through a lot of spammer requests to weed out the valid applications - so unfortunately its time consuming.

Given that we are now 13 years in since this forums inception - I figure there really isn't that much of a rush.

I'm relatively new to collecting, shooting and hunting. I haven't shot my new-to-me 1930 Model 12 16 gauge yet, but hope to do so soon. Would like to try trap with it at a club I joined recently. Very glad to have found this forum.

Thanks for all the welcomes, everyone.

And Mike, thanks for the offer to shoot together. I'm too far away, though, just south of Dallas.

Welcome to the site Ed. This is a great forum with lots of knowledge, especially if you like to load your own recipes. Enjoy and post often.

Good Hunting,
Mike
