    VGOF has arrived - Howdy folks!

    Hi everyone. Been awhile since I posted here, and now with the new OCDO forum setup, I figured I should swing by, wave and say "Hello!"

    Sooo... Hello!!

    Hello and welcome. Are you new or did the new forum reset your post count?

    It would also be helpful if you updated your profile to show "where" in Virginia you are.

    So what does VGOF stand for?

    He's another forum...and not a bad one. He has some posters I could do without but that's not his fault

    I think I still have an RSS feed to them on Old Va.

    Working on ad banners with OCDO owner John brought me over here today.

    I just realized that my old username (allingeneral) is still in the system. I thought I had to re-register for the new forum. Oh well...I like VGOF better now that I own VGOF.org and VGOF.net

    45acpForMe - VGOF == Va Gun Owners Forum and I'm near Fredericksburg.

    You've been pumping the email out lately. Your membership should be pretty sizable now.

    Yep...the VGOF Feed's still running but OCDO must have crashed during the changeover.

    Hopefully, the emails haven't been too intrusive. I try not to be annoying, but I do try to get things out that I think are worthy of broadcasting.

    Almost 1700 active members (spammers are truncated) and we just hit 50,000 posts over the weekend and I gave away a leatherman tool to mark the occasion.

    Naw///they don't bother me at all. Actually it helps me keep up with the framework of the site.

    I have to sift through a thousand or so syndicate feeds a day and can't keep up with all the sites I'd like to.

    I was thinking more along the line of people who start fights with bartenders that they can't finish and badmouth OC'ers as "Fringe" people.

    I saw that he posted there as well. Didn't really follow up on it much past that though. Saw enough to know enough already.

    That's not Rick's doing though. I don't think he even said that on VGOF. That was a twitter post if I recall correctly.

    Twitter and clarified and made perfectly clear elsewhere. I saw he posted at VGOF and thought of registering to look at his posts and see if he said anything similar there... but never actually checked because I figured what the hell's it worth. Well... 'til just a little bit ago.

    I keep up with too many forums already but I might as well add another to the list, since I'm already registered.
