About Donations...
« on: May 23, 2017, 08:21:29 AM »
We all tend to take it for granted that our favorite forum will always be here. Smokey has never asked for a dime in donations from anyone here to keep up daily operations, but I know it can be tough at times keeping up the domains and related expenses, so...
While donations are completely "at will" and not required to be a member here, they are certainly helpful in defraying the costs of maintaining a forum and are very much appreciated!
I'm gonna put my money where my mouth is and start out with a small donation to help out with upkeep here. No donation is too small (or too big for that matter) and is very much appreciated. &\?

Sad but true. You may have seen how Mike was 'pushed out' of his former shooting range...much better now that he owns the Duelist's Den property.

The way I look at it, is the effort put into starting and maintaining a forum web site is work , and should be
cost shared by all. But the big benefit is to the member who receives a lot of individual knowledge ,as well
as friendship.
Thank you all . My donation is on it's way.

Thank you for the pleasant surprise, guys. I plan to keep the forum going as long as I am kicking. And when I am gone Kirk will still be in control. Forum donations do help out a lot. Thanks again, Tim
