    I remember him, missed out on the whole "troll killing" part. :cuss: He was a real "Gecko" wannabe

    My favorite was the .410 guy. He was really tenacious, lots of fun to smack around the forum.

    The recent Canadian boggled my mind. To come on a gun forum and argue that Americans are paranoid and too dependent on guns............that's smart.

    Gunkid

    This guy plagued dozens of firearms boards over the years created multiple accounts which were quickly banned as most gunboard mods learned to recognize Gunkids unique posting style within about 3 posts.

    Did this board ever get a Gunkid infestation? I banned him multiple times from other boards and haven't seen him on gunboards since his prison stint for federal gun charges.

    I remember a GunKid thread. He got into it with someone (Teach maybe) and Teach said something like "That's why you are not GunMan." I don't remember seeing him after that.

    I seem to remember something like that to.

    Yeah Gunkid was a real piece of work. On one site I banned him 6 times and then ended up having to go 100 wide on an IP ban to stop him. This was when he was in Colorado and he was posting from public library computers. He was always trying to peddle his plans for making beercan silencers and full auto conversions for AR's so he was always trying to sneak in links to his websites. He was a legend in his own mind. He ended up going to prison 1st time as I recall was for securities fraud during his brief career as a stockbroker. Second time was for federal weapons charges illegal possession of a silencer and excon/convicted felon in possession of firearms. After he got out of prison the second time he made a brief appearance on AR15.com haven't seen him online since then. Always wondered if one of the conditions of his parole was that he stay the hell off of gun forums?

    Yep, the fact that he saved the Mayors son has stuck in my mind.

    I do remember some guy that posted up on here about an event where he was horse riding in a wilderness area and an incident took place. I think he was Gecko45's cousin cos he saved the Mares son..........

    There's been a few great ones over the years, but for some reason the one that sticks out in my mind above the others wasn't really a troll. Just strange.....really strange.

    Often posted late at night in a "stream of consciousness" format. Trey. Dan C recommended he put the hash-pipe down, but apparently the advice wasn't very well received. DanJ banned him soon after.

    IIRC, the final straw was for recommending shooting deer in the rectum, due to the plethora of blood vessels that converge there. "Quick bleed out", he claimed.

    He came back a year or two later as Three Bears. I banned him. He had a buddy in a supporting role the second time around who's name I don't recall, but I got him, too.

    Not really trolls, but memorable nonetheless.

    I remember one guy on the old forum back around 2004 with the name 'shooter30-06' or something like that. 30-06 was part of the screen name, anyway. One Friday night, he must have been well into his cups, and was posting a bunch of nonsense in the 2A forum. Drew and I bantered with him back and forth well into the early morning, and he finally lost it, big time. Dan took care of bidness early Saturday morning and banned him. (Man, I sure do miss Drew.)

    Then there was that guy from Wisconsin or Minnesota, don't remember which, or some other state in that area, that advocated riding down the road and shooting cats that were more than 100 yards from any house. He said the DNR said it was OK because the DNR said cats killed small game. He got banned, then used his girlfriend's login to post on the forum, and Dan banned them both.
