I want to take a moment and remind members about forum etiquette. This past week saw two or three threads turn ugly. So bad in fact I locked them.
This board has always been a friendly place. We're fortunate to have a wide knowledge base and plenty of guys that are new to the hobby. Opinions are fine and those opinions don't have to be universal rule. Counter-discussion is good and is welcome. But do so with respect for one another. As much as I like the internet, I do think it brings out the worst in some. This sport used to be chalked full of gentlemen (ex-military, competitive shooters, sportsman, etc). More and more we're seeing folks that live to 'internet troll' and provoke pissing matches. That won't happen here....I'll be damned if this forum goes the route of others I won't mention.
So with that said, let me be clear. I won't tolerate people that bait, jab, and incite. If you do, you'll be warned once via PM (and more than a few were warned last week). If it continues you'll be banned.
I'd rather have 100 knowledgeable gentlemen on this board than 10,000 bomb throwers looking for a place to argue.
For those that have added value to Singleactions.com I have one thing to say: "Thank You".
I totally agree, years ago , maybe 10 or more when I discovered Jim Taylors site and John Taffins site I thought I'd found some long lost friends , but feuding began to take its toll and lots of arguing took place over small petty things and people left and sites were closed ....I'm glad that this place and a couple of others are still around . I read about 5 forums everyday and look forward to information and opinions of the good guys in this internet world . I don't post as much anymore due to some of the rascals who just pick fights . Thanks Lee .
Thanks Lee. I concur wholeheartedly. As a mod on another forum I find it sad and disgusting to have to step in at times between a few full grown men who act like a bunch of 12 year old girls.
I find this board a very informative and refreshing place and like most others, try to contribute what I can.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted...If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job."
This sight has become my daily "go-to" mainly because of the positive atmosphere and the kind and helpful gentlemen that hang out here. The level and depth of knowledge, experience and pure willingness to help out to me is unprecedented anywhere else on the net when it comes to SA revolvers, or anything else for that matter. I hope to one day have the privilege of meeting some of you great folks in person. This place just feels like home. First class all the way! So, thanks for taking the time and initiative to help keep it that way Lee.

Thanks for a great forum. It is a great place to come for infromation, and advice. I don't post much, and when I did ask for advice replies were great. Being able to go back and search old threads answers questions. This old dog has learned new things here. Photos make my day sometimes. Was reading here for years before signing up or posting. This forum has answered questions I did not know I needed to ask at times. Thank you and all the people that make this forum what it is.
A well regulated militia! I for one, am grateful for not only the large caliber (get it) of informed individuals here but also the ease in which this forum can be navigated. I believe next month it will be a year since I signed on here and am better for it. Thanks to Lee and all who make this a reasonably safe place to be.
