Thank you to the admin. and moderators for a fantastic sight. It's never heavy handed and not as restrictive as many other sights I attend.
I'll second that! This Forum is like no other I've been involved with. Great knowledgeable members always willing to share.

Example: All the fine Swiss watch collectors sites I attend (yes I do like fine watches) you can't recommend or provide resources for any vendor or experience with retailers. You don't dare question the direction or integrity of said watch company. You can't help new members discern a fake with the real thing. And you don't dare talk about money values.

You can wish other members happy birthday and post pictures, and that's about it. Not very informative huh? This site actually provides very important information on ALL aspects of the brand.

Agreed. This is an excellent forum, populated by a bunch of fine, classy people. I really enjoy spending time here.

Yep, me too. Kinda like coming home for a comforting "warm fuzzy" with my Colt buds each time I sign on. I give all the credit to the Admin guys (& gals?) for keeping it that way as well as the "All Things Colt First" perspectives of our Members. Pleased and proud to be a Colt Forum Member.

I was a member, briefly, of the Rolex and Breitling forums. While they were not forum member unfriendly, compared to the Colt Forum, they were booorrinnggg! :cool:

Definitely agree. I have been on other gun forums where members don't have much sympathy for those that are learning. Often the answer is go get a book and study up.

I've had a Rolex DateJust since 1978. I can't even afford to have it cleaned again. That starts at $600.
I wear it every day.
When I bought it I was undecided between the DateJust and the Submariner. I chose the former, but I still like that Submariner. I have a feeling whichever one I bought. I would hve also wanted the other.

ACTUALLY MR CADET, there is much to be said and commended about this as an answer. I do not understand MY buying the books for my edification and then having lazy newbies expect me to be spoon feeding them like pablum to a baby, as if they were owed this. OR MY favorite, the fellow who DEMANDED loading data from the brand new latest loading manual and who threw a fit when I gave him the ordering address for that loading manual; HE OWED NONE AFTER FIVE YEARS OF LOADING, and was obviously still a rank novice from the silly questions he asked.
AND so it goes...

I'll say something here. Wil Terry is the only ammunition expert who worked in the industry that I know of on the internet. When he talks about ammo, I listen.
I occasionally PM him with ammo questions ( I don't reload, though). When I do so, I do so very respectfully. He can just blow me off if he wanted to :D

That watch will outlast you. Yes, service is expensive, that's why I use a local watch repair shop to lube mine up every 10 yrs. or so. Much cheaper--same result.

Thank you WIL TERRY. Always the unselfish, helpful, constructive and civil Forum Member. Bet you're glad you were never a "newbie."
