    Greetings, Welcome to the forum
    There will be a few that should comment on the guns you asked about
    FYI, for me the link did not work

    Welcome.

    I'm not too terribly far from Kileen, in Texas terms. :)

    Lots of good folks here.  Hope you stick around.  Also, seeing as how you are sending a greeting from a military base, I'll assume you're in the service.  In that case, thank you for your service.

    Welcome, aboard. I did a goodly amount of deer hunting in that area.

    Nine posts and then banned, is that a record? 😂

    He's been banned a bunch of times...based on his last username, I surmise he's been watching Band of Brothers...

    If you guys had more tools at your disposal you could use a MAC IP scanner to look up and then ban his number. Instead it's wack-a-troll.

    We used to have that feature until the latest upgrade. I just freaking love upgrades.

    In place of the old IP lookup function we now have a bot that tags certain post for our attention as possible spam. More often than not it's a established member it's tagged 4 review. Not much way anymore 2 get rid of repeat trolls. So it's endless whack a troll. Pretty frustrating from a mods point of view.

    Hell, he uses the same writing style every time. Ain’t that hard to target.

    Bobbert just won't go away, I guess.
    A mods work is never done.

    I remember the name Bobbert, but not his posts.  I wonder what got him banned.  He sure posted a lot of questions on the Cowboy post.

    No, not even close. But....I was being patient. It's a virtue, so I'm told.

    Thanks to this clown, I've grown leery of welcoming new members.  It's a damn shame.

    Now I wonder about Rick.

    He was banned for being weird, best I could tell.

    Question, how can you tell someone has been banned?  Y'all mean there are those kind of people in here?

    Easy. Look at their avatar. It's got a red background and plainly states "Banned User, Carry on".

    And yes, there are those kind of people here, but usually not for long. We've gotten pretty good at sniffing them out over the years.
