This is a discussion on New to forum within the New Users forums, part of the Lobby category; This is the quietest forum I belong to. The others have far more postings and ribald discussions. I was wondering why especially when one considers ...
Why? because IMO, there is almost nothing I can think of that is as serious as owning a firearm. the latent power of a weapon that has the power to kill at long range is a terrible responsability and one that requires the utmost respect and knowledgeable handling.
One can and should have fun with a firearm but one should always realize that a gun, like fire can be both a comfort and a dangerous thing when used carelessly.
This is one of the "gun" forums who's members realize that. This is not to say that others put fun and joking ahead of gun safety they do not. I have yet to read anything on a "gun" forum that suggests unsafe use of a firearm. But one should always use common sense when seeking information found on the internet and check numerous sources to be sure that the original information sought and received is correct to the seekers satisfaction.
By the way welcome aboard!
