Thread: I have question?
Although we are all registered for this forum and not "members", could we get a count on how many folks there are in WA that have subscribed to this forum somewhere?
If the total number of posts is any indication of the "depth" in WA State members, there are a lot. At 93,000+, WA is second only to VA at 123,000 +. The rest are a much smaller fraction of that. If not an indicator of total membership for a State it sure is a good indicator of the "enthusiasm" of them.
That's closer, thanks!.....I'm just wondering about this in relation to advocacy issues and the power of strength in numbers....and ultimately how we gather them to a rally point that is important (Spokane Parks, Pierce County, Vancouver, Yakima)....every issue needs a champion, but to fire for effect, it's important to not be viewed as "a dog yapping in the yard" to any of these communities that we hope to affect change in and there is strength and success in numbers, that I've seen.....along with a few soloists, willing to take their at bats for the cause....and with 600+ people, heck that's enough for a statewide convention, guest speakers and everything.

According to our administrator, we have approx 1,360 folks with Washington listed as their primary registration state....
That's pretty cool....it would be cooler to get us all out at some event or other.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat....Teddy Roosevelt
I wish we had a "Washington Off topic" forum. Off topic at OC's main page is ok but it would be nice to be able to field a OT gun question amongst friends and family so to speak. Not that feed back from Skippy Moonshine down in the Ozarks isn't great and all. But I tend to value our local opinion, Positive or negative, with a little more weight.
