This is to support youth shooting sports. Which I think we can all agree, is constantly at risk of losing support. If John feels this should be removed, since it is his site, then I ask that he just simply let me know.Forum Rule:
(14) LONG GUN CARRY IS OFF-TOPIC: This web site is focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life. We do NOT promote the carry of long guns. Long guns are great! OCDO co-founders John & Mike and most of the members of this forum own at least one long gun - but due to urban area issues of muzzle control and lack of trigger guard coverage, we cannot support long gun open carry.
The post is to raise money for a rifle team, not a pistol teem.
I have built a custom rifle with donated parts from members of WaGuns. All money will go to Tumwater High School Rifle Team.
Snipp...Especially the fotos...Well Jamie oh wait badkarma, forgive CoL for failing to provide a cite as is the custom on this forum of the rule you are blatantly violating, so...https://xf.opencarry.org/index.php?help/rules/ but to his credit he quoted it properly.
Now as an illustrious site moderator of WAGun, please advise this august membership of your response to any WAGun forum member who posted a thread which very clearly violates your site’s rules; point it out to the member, and the member basically disrespects you by stating ‘they are precious, special, and don’t really give a rat’s derrière’ about your silly forum rules!
Now, this premier, NATIONALLY recognized, open carry handgun forum has a policy regarding LG discussion is prohibited, w/o exception, why do you feel you are special and precious to violate our policies. Especially since you posted last in 2016, once in 2015, three times in 2013, ad nauseam!
Further, how by existing Federal statutes as well as new post WA initiatives are you going to transfer your HAND BUILT kludge?
Finally, don’t you think NRA, DUCKs, and FEDERAL support enough?
That rule is focused on the issues surrounding long gun open carry. But we don't ban mere discussion of rifle events, etc, which many of us engage in and enjoy.

Solus. This portion of your post from Jan 2, shows that YOU want to bring this to John, as a personal matter. Your post is implying that John should interpret Badkarma's post as a personal attack. How else could I perceive the above quote?...nope they come to your Forum John - Open Carry forum soliciting donations - why?
BobR, “why you quit coming...” ?And this type of public BS is why I have quit coming to what was once a great sub-Forum on an exceptional site. Now that every "Tom, Dick and Harry" that is either interested or not has had a chance to see this and form their own opinions I guess the time for taking it to PM is past.
Defacto, sorry BobR, I did not step out of the mist w/maybe six (6) posts in the last five years criticizing members posting as BS.Wow, you got me there. Are you the defacto board monitor now, at least in your own mind?
I see you started coming here in 2013 and are quite the prolific poster. Good for you.
I stopped coming here before you even came onto the scene so your history and mine are quite different. I come here 2x a year to participate in a very specific thread, the WA state OC campout. While here I will look at other WA state posts to see how things are, which are usually pretty good because we fought the fight and won. Now it looks as though the fight in WA will be starting anew so I was considering becoming more active again, but I see you have that covered for a lot of areas so I will spend my limited time for internet interaction to more appealing subjects.
Did I buy a raffle ticket? No. I have no desire for an AR platform rifle built by someone I know nothing about, my preference. I figure the money and time I provide to the Friends of the NRA will cover me for many shooting clubs. If I give directly it is to local Youth Groups because they are the people I know.
