Just an example of the kind of "vibe" you get on AZS...

New User - "Do you know where I can find Brand - X ammo for a good price?"

Veteran User - "Google is your friend!"

Veteran User 2 - "Try using the search button?"

Veteran User 3 - "^This"

New User - "Ya, I tried Google, just thought that you guys might have a local spot to pick it up."

Veteran 4 - "Like User 1 and 2 said... try using the search function."

New User - "Ya.. uhm.. Thanks for the help."

Just an example of the overall vibe there. Just negative.. People are always ready to slam anyone's post. And it's just not a place you want to spend your time. Most of the opinions that I valued have since moved on or lurk in the classifieds.. That is the one thing that I hear most often.. "I only log on to browse the classifieds."

In all, I have recieved 25+ messages from people wondering where the hell the Court Jester (Me) went. And I told them about this place. Hopefully this will become the place where people want to come and engage in conversation like the old days.. And if you don't like someone's opinion.. Discuss it... if it irritates you.. Stop reading it.

I didn't pay much attention to the 'politics' over at azs but could see it was becoming 'stale' with some veteran posters sounding like cranky old fudds.

I still bounce back and forth between lurking and reading as there is a lot of solid good info there to be learned but mostly lurk there and have been abit more active posting here since people seem to be of a more friendly nature.

Oh and I followed Siggy over here as I happened to accidently click the link in his signature o.O happy I did!

when a fine gentleman like "thatoneguy40oz" get's five (5) negative feedbacks and is still allowed on the site....


If I sell ammo here.... and I take PM's and the highest bidder? even when I've already agreed to sell it to you? .... Fk your website and the ilk that deals like this.....that ain't right. and shouldn't be allowed....

Tims response was "well we can't have a public "I'll take it" rule because of those that want to stay below the radar.... FU!! and you radar evading douche bag AZSHIOLEs...

done with the classifieds there...and since there ain't a off topic....


ahhh... Vented. thanks.

Good to have you here. You'll find people here won't jump on you for a differing opinion or just to hear themselves talk.

Hey, I'm new here as well. I think it's funny to see folks complaining about AZS. I really never see it but I never go anywhere but the the ACTS subforum. Must be pretty bad as it's a common complaint.

I usually roam AR15.com...

I'm also a new member here, and I can say that it's a shame what AZS has turned into.
I joined over there in '05 and at that time you could almost always count on someone being helpful and honestly trying to help you out with a question or problem concerning guns, reloading,etc. I looked forward to going there and spending a lot of time with a lot of guys I considered to be my friends. . WAY too much according to my wife!

Now, however, it seems most there can't wait to turn threads into a pissing match, and be rude to others. Who needs that crap? I don't feel it's that way here at all-quite the opposite, and I'm sure glad to be here!

I'm here cause I like to try to discuss topics like a human being as much as possible and newbies are people to :D I'm a member at that other sight but only to look at the classifieds mostly cause I've never felt welcome to join any conversation. Here I see a core group of good people that seem to welcome good times and conversation and don't mind sharing experiences and information without being a dick about it. As long as that continues I'll be here.

I want to take the chance to thank Dauph again for the invite and try not to embarrass him.......to much anyway :mocking:

You guys look like you got a good thing going here :happy:

It is always good to have other places to go. Variety is a good thing....

I have been busy with classes and the new Para-Cord Bracelet/Lanyard/Monkey Fist Projects. Leaves little time for play time.

Going to make a point to be back more.

Hope the problem makers don't flock here now because they have no place to go. I really enjoy this site, theres a few that are a little weird but that is what gives it it's character. Don't you think so, sigdaddy
