    I have been here for about 2 months now. After we made a decision to start making plans to move to Texas, I searched for a Texas 2A forum. I happened onto TGT, looked around, liked what I saw, and decided this was the place that I wanted to be.

    I liked the laid back, friendly, and drama-free atmosphere here. Almost immediately I decided to become a supporting member. If I was going to hang out here and absorb information and entertainment, I wanted to do my part to help and keep the lights turned on.

    As I look around every day, I am really surprised at the members that have been around a while and have a high post count and are not supporting members. For a very small fee anyone can help support the forum and insure it will be here next time we log in. We all benefit from the experiences and knowledge of each other by asking questions or just lurking around. This place is one of the best bargains on the internet.

    The founders sold it a while back. New owners are not gun people and make money from advertising. I don't think they need charity.

    Welcome to TGT. I too joined recently and liked the group and the content here. Hopefully I can contribute more as I learn and be of help to others.

    I was a member of a forum that was sold to Canadians. The same day, myself and a few others started our own forum. We vowed to never sell nor make a profit. We do not have ads with the exception of our supporting sponsors that are also members. Any money made would go back into the forum and to it's members. On our first anniversary, we had a drawing and gave the winning lucky member a Ruger 10/22 Takedown rifle.
    We have given a lot back to our members and we have some of the best people in the world supporting us.

    As for the supporting/life member thing, some folks here give back to the members in ways not necessarily seen on the screen.

    But fine since you really did put it rather eloquently, I'll pony up a few bucks.(It's really just so I don't get my ass chewed out again)

    How much is my time worth when I often research laws, case laws, etc., to help other members?

    While I would never pressure anyone to send their money, the advertising revenue is a troublesome issue given how google, etc treat everything firearms related. It’s part of the reason some really strange ads have popped up in the past.

    I’ll also say that the “new” owner is a great guy. The forums day to day activities are overseen by members who have a long history here and we are fully supported by the owner. He’s about as much of a gun guy as possible. I don’t want anyone to get the wrong impression.
