    Greetings all, I'm new here.

    It has come to my attention that I have been accused by a formerly banned member of this forum of being a sock puppet. I am extremely uncomfortable giving out any personal information (like location) as a result but I will offer this to the forum.

    A quick check by the mods will prove this accusation to be untrue.

    I have a new WCI member number. I have been greeted by Mr. Hoffman via pm here.

    I joined this forum despite the drama because my belief in the Constitution grows stronger every day. I used to collect, restore, and target shoot firearms. I have some experience with black powder rifles. I have been a member of a grass roots motorcycle rights organization in a different state for years. I know from experience the power these groups wield and the power of voting.

    I am here mainly for knowledge. It has been a long time since I have been active in this sport. I am not a native so I do not know WI laws as well as I should. The concept of OC is completely alien to me. But I believe it is important because every day I wake up I have less and less rights.

    I am trying very hard to attend the Veteran's dinner tomorrow night so hopefully I will meet some members in person.

    Thanks,
    HH

    ahahaha....

    Hopefully you've learned how to use proxies. They are very important for hiding your true identity.

    Hello, and welcome.
    It is good to have you. The forum is going through a "thing" right now, and I am sorry that you got hit with some of the problems that we are working on.
    All I can say is try not to fight with the people that start the issues. Sooner or later, they will go away, by force.
    This forum has a lot of good members, and even better info on Wisconsin open carry. If you do have any questions at all, feel free to ask.

    Howdy HH,

    Don't worry I didn't provide a "proper" introduction either and I was treated the same way. I guess they will just have to get over it.

    By the way I like that avatar bus you have there. Is that the way it came or did you convert it? I have never seen a bus like that.

    Been watching... and I hear you. But I have a writing style that tends to piss people off for whatever reason. So I thought this might be a good way for you all to get acclimated to me.

    The bus was pilfered from the net. Wish I could take credit for it.

    I haven't seen anything you've written to anger me. There seems to only be one that doesn't like anyone else, but we won't talk about him.

    Welcome HandyHamlet. It's always nice to see new people joining up. I'm mostly into collecting and target shooting, myself, though I don't collect anything in particular, just whatever happens to catch my eye. I'd love to get one of the Legacy/Puma .22LR "replicas" of the old Russian PPSh-41.

    If it's the old Soviet / Warsaw Pact weapons you like, you might be a little envious to know that for over two years, I hauled a genuine one around in the Army. Also a couple of full-auto AK-47's, AKM's, an RPK and RPD machinegun, a Czech Vz. 58, Tokarev and Makarov pistols, and even an RPG-7!

    The one thing I didn't have but wanted to get was the Skorpion sub machine gun.

    Envious indeed! It's too bad someone doesn't make a more accurate replica of it.

    Thanks Paul and Yote,

    I plan on being at the dinner but I don't think I will be there till later. I originally wanted to document the event but at this point I will be happy to just shake a few hands.

    Of course that's a figure of speech since I don't have hands. I'll be the giant white sock with plastic eyes, magic marker eye brows, and a floppy red tongue.

    Looking forward to putting faces to the names.

    I doubt there is a bus from Washington Island this time of year, short or long.

    $100 says HH is Huffman and he never shows. Any takers?

    In this case it would be unwise to take that bet.

    Exclamation Looking Forward To Meeting Mr. Handy Hamlet At Lizzy's!

    We are a suspicious bunch aren't we? So every new member is accused of being an alter ego of Doug or James or ??? If you believe there is a banned person on here then just report him/her and move on. Why all the drama?

    I believe we will meet Mr. Handy tomorrow night at Lizzy's for the Vet's dinner. I am hoping that more of us show up to show our support for our Veterans and show them that the United States DOES care.

    I will be there tomorrow night with McX, Yote, Springfield 1911 and our family members. We hope to see many Wisconsin Carry folks there with their families if possible. This is a one time event and many of these Veterans won't make it another year. The event tomorrow night IS AN OPEN CARRY event and we have the permission of the bar owner next door to open carry in his bar tomorrow night (Keith).

    Let's get back to open carry events and topics.

    Yeah, I know who HH is and their 1st name is not James or Doug.

    In Spartacus's mind, there can only be 2 or 3 people in the world who disagree with him so anyone who is new and disagrees with him must be James or Doug (or me).

    I will be a Lizzies tomorrow. I plan on being there around 4:00 pm and will stay as late as possible to help honor these folks.
