One thing I do know, registrar, is that you are no shooter.

I’ve been around shooters, even before I started shooting at twelve years of age, because my uncles hunted and talked about guns and hunting around us kids. This makes my fiftieth year of shooting and I shoot as much or more than ever, now that I have retired. In my fifty years of shooting, I’ve met and shot, side by side, with all kinds of shooters. I’ve hunted with true sportsmen and shot in various target sports with true champions; I’ve won a few medals, myself.

I can tell in fairly short order when someone knows of what they speak and I can also tell in short order when someone is just a poser blowing smoke. It’s not hard.

Without exception, every shooter and hunter I’ve met, beginner or expert, is eager to talk about guns they own or guns they had or guns they want to yet purchase. When the talk turns to ammo, it is what specific load, what specific brand, what specific bullet, what brass, what primer and more. Move on to sights and accessories and it is more of the same; specific questions about specific guns and specific accessories. Actual shooters want detail and they supply detail in their posts. They’re eager to share their experiences when it comes to actual shooting. They want to post range reports and gun evaluations.

So, alas, poor registrar, with over forty posts and numerous requests from many of us, here, to tell us about your guns and your shooting, what have you shared? Let’s take a look.

You’ve made one vague reference to an M1A you shot in the 70s and one reference to the way you carry a gun to the beach. Other than that, zilch! Why no mention of any specific gun you own or specific gun you shoot? Why no mention of any ammo brand you prefer or pet loads you’ve developed, other than once mentioning you practice with cast bullets. Why nothing on scopes, red dots, sights, lasers or other gun related equipment? Why no range reports? Why no pics? In fact, for some one who preaches at us about CCW, tactical and combat shooting, we’ve seen nothing about actual equipment or accessories you recommend in those areas. That’s rather odd, given that a visit to any tactical, CCW or combat shooting forum is even MORE loaded with gear talk than this forum. So much for your credibility, here, as a shooter.

What makes me nervous is the way you are so quick to tell others all about how they shoot handle themselves in a self-defense, life and death, situation. Based on what qualifications, may I ask? Have you ever served in combat? Have you received any combat training? Have you ever shot a gun at anyone? Have you even once pulled a gun in defense of your life and home? Are you a shooting instructor? Have you been certified by any organization to teach others how to protect themselves with a gun? Is any of what you say based on any real life experiences that you, yourself, have had? If not, maybe you should think twice about preaching to others, in your very opinionated and nasty way, about how to defend themselves or their loved ones.

In short, put up or shut up. Otherwise, take your rude, pompous act somewhere else. I'm sure this is not the first forum that has asked you to leave.

Most people that have been in combat situations don't like to talk about it. And the fakes that claim to have been can easily be spotted. A lot of people like firearms because they see them as protection but the truth being told I just like to plink.

In some areas of firearms I am quite knowledgable but in other areas I'm a newbie. I've collected WWI and WWII military firearms for most of my life but have recently gotten into cowboy action. I hope cowboy action is the right term.

No one has asked to talk about his combat shooting experiences. I've only asked him if he had any in order for him to qualify himself as a combat expert, which he obviously thinks he is.

Yes, Cowboy Action is correct, just one of several action shooting disciplines. Another one is called Wild Bunch in which you are allowed to use WWI vintage guns, i.e 1911s, Model 12s and so on. Basically a Rough Rider , Butch Cassidy era style shooting. An them of course there are the many tactical and combat style action shooting disciplines.

If you have ay Cowboy Action shoots in your area, you should go and watch, even if you don't participate. It's very entertaining. I've been invited to join by our local group, but shooting fast is not really my thing. Still might give it a whirl, though. I've sure got the guns for it.

Our range has cowboy action once a month and I've gone a few times. Most of them dress up in era clothing and have a chuckwagon dinner afterwards. I've participated in the high-powered rifle shoots and we dress in either WWII or Vietnam era uniforms.

I'm with Mac, well said. My response was a bit more acidic, but we r on the same page.
I too am fairly new to this forum, I've had a couple small differences of opinions with my fellow members, but the conversation was strictly P.M. I think i've blended in alright, maybe i'm a bit of a Smartass, but i feel i've got the tempo right. If i haven't, anyone can P.M. me & tell me so & i'll b happy to remedy the situation....
But with this clown, the remedy is easy in my view, just don't respond to any threads or comments & he'll go & annoy some other forum.
Idiots like this feed off angry responses. Don't give him the food....

Absolutely. Differences of opinion are fine and to be expected on a forum, but insults and lack of manners are not fine.

Again our new spammer is attempting to sell parts. This time for the wrong type of firearm. The OP asked for advice on pistol parts. This genius lists parts that he keeps for his fictional AR. And then of course there is a convenient link to his online store.

Without this post being revisited, I would have never read North County Gal's Awesome post!

Yes NCG's reply is one of the classics. On the other hand,Registrar aka mall ninja, troll boy, etc. was a classic ass. You would have loved to hate him.

"Registrar" was the name he used. We gave him the other handles. He was a piece of work.

I don't know if all his posts still show. I know Shootist used to delete some of his posts and then whine that the responses to his offensive posts were picking on him. He liked to try and bully the ladies and then complained when they did not treat him as a pampered brother.

Register was just a blowhard jerk. His ignorance was only exceeded by his arrogance. He could not even keep his stories or claims straight from one post to the next.

He was probably used to posturing on survivalist blogs where most members know little about guns and their use. The kind that buy Alex Jone's wild claims about the evil of HLS buying "Dum-dum" bullets designed to rip apart internal organs and kill people standing nearby just by the massive shock from those military assault bullets in 9mm.

Here with people like Gunrunner and North Country Gal he just looked silly and annoying.

One thing I have notices of NCG and SG from the two forum that I see them on, they seem to be able to handle things for themselves quite well.

You gotta love a tool that picks a fight with a lady and then complains about getting beat up by them
