I also visit more than just this forum ever day because I have varied interests. I seldom post anything but enjoy the good discussions and learn a thing or two every day.

However, I would like to point out that the search bar operates differently on ever forum I have visited. Most of them don't work worth a flip. I have better luck Googling my search term outside the forum and letting Google lead me back to the forum topic I am interested in.

So personally I don't care if some new member asks the same question that was answered yesterday or 5 years ago, or is contained in a sticky. Someone should point them in the right direction or answer the question because when you are inside a forum 'search is not your friend'.

True. Searcher has already pointed out that Google works FAR better than the pathetic search feature native to this forum. Maybe the forum owners would consider simply inserting a automatic link to it.

I for one would hate to see you go sir.

First because I have learned a lot from your posts, and secondly, because I appreciate your dry, rapier like wit, even when I am on the wrong end of the point of it.

I do understand the tedious nature of explaining the same thing over and over again. I do it far too often in my capacity as a classic car mechanic, but it goes with the territory.

I wish there was more new ground to cover, but alas, there really is not much that is honestly new if firearms development currently.

It doesn't have to be "new". Most people don't even understand the "old". There is much to be profitably learned from shining a light on what has previously passed, often unnoticed.

Actually, in concept I agree completely with beamon. It would be very classy. But in practice political discussion that does not quickly swerve off into the frenetic and pugnacious is simply unattainable here. I suspect it has to do with democracy --one man, one vote. So everyone's opinion, no matter how stupid, gets an equal airing, at least on the internet.

Anyway, that was basically a diversion, wasn't it?

No. I don't pretend to be an "operator" or even to travel in fast company. I leave that stuff to others --some of whom post here.

I offer the following to help cheer Mike up: a couple of plane tickets to West Palm Beach in May. I'll bet he's got a couple of stories in his safe that'd enjoy the company of those of a fellow gentleman.

I am old. Plus I am garrulous, cantankerous, horny and unreasonable.

I think 'ornery', (Webster's: having a bad disposition), not horny (see RevRay's post above) might be the allegedly correct term. Either way, as Pilotsteve mentioned, he would be (IMO) a very welcome addition to this years Greet & Shoot.
