I am GUILTY.
All I can say is, I set the hook as deep as possible today B)
How often do you enable others outside of forum posts?

    After so many years this place continues to amaze me about how much knowledge resides in here and how generous folks are with their time and knowledge.  

    Thanks Ernie, I’m really looking forward to the next class… 😎

    About a 20 minute drive south of town, I have access to a permanent steel range that goes beyond a mile.  How many specialty pistols/chamberings do you want to shoot? o:)
    Gillette does have an airport o:)

    I believe someone here has a 6x45mm. I just had to mention how much 5.56 brass he had to burn...

    Oh yeah, it is show and tell every time I see friends or family I have not seen is awhile, enabling is a two way street :D

    Been trying the Jedi Mind Wiggle on Zee for a CZ .22 bolt gun - I THINK he's weakening. :p

    Hey, I have a CZ Scout .22lr. 

    While I’d love the long barreled Jaguar……not for the price when I already have several .22lr rifle options in the fold.

    There will probably be a few if you indulge me.  This is a project that I want to do right.

    Lately, I've been more the victim of enabling rather than the perpetrator.

    The OP, "Who Here Is Active In Enabling Others To Buy Guns?", may be construed as a phishing trip.
              The short question should be "Who Here Isn't Active In Enabling Others To Buy Guns?"

    I like Elmer Keith; I married his daughter :wink:

    *Hand wave. Quiet voice*  This is not the answer I'm looking for. :D

    They're a shooter's rifle.  If they let the accountants into the design meeting, they at least didn't let them eat lunch at the cool kid's table.  A rare thing anymore, and not going to get cheaper.  Get to the pound and bring one of the sad-eyed little darlings home!

    Pretty sure I've done more enabling off the forum,  with members,  than on the forum

    I'm guilty on other forums. The folks on this forum are self motivated so there's few people to enable, but I try.

    I heard my name! (smoke clearing, slight smell of sulfur) what’s up guys? 😈🤣
    I’ve  never offered something to someone that they didn’t want……
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I have been known from time to time encourage other members to buy good deals or unique finds….. I’ve done the same along the way…..

    Helped my friend walk out of LGS with a GSG Firefly last week. I’m feeling very good about myself and his decision.

    I picked one of those up after being encouraged by the late BigChief.  After a few cups of coffee and seeing a small percentage of his collection, we went to Rural King and i left with one.  Great little shooter

    If I didn't have a Colt conversion unit, I'd probably need the GSG 1911.  I may still need the GSG 1911.

    I scored hero points with one of the range regulars when he showed up with his new in box.  I scanned through the schematic in his instruction manual and said "Would you like me to try to get rid of the magazine disconnect for you?"  10 minutes later, it was acting like a proper 1911 should.
