General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

All NFA laws apply.

17,384.....0 post?

Post by JDrin » Tue Mar 06, 2012 1:14 pm

just looking at the site's stats of members I found the below.

17,384 members that have made 0 post

now I lurked around here for about a year before I posted, it go me thinking.

any way we could see some trend data?
I would like to see a couple years of graphs showing "guest" visits / site views over time.... that stuff

looking at the ATF numbers, NFA sales, just looking for correlation. (wouldn't it be nice to find causation?)

Probably a lot of automated registers for spammers. Just a guess, anyway.

When I first came across this site, I had to create an account just to browse the forums.

It's open now, but I think you still have to register to see the Artistic Images section.

I'll be posting again when I mail my first check!!! Might be soon. Want to go to the dealers shop tomorrow morning and start my first transfer.

Hope it goes smoothly and quickly.

Thanks to all the guys who gave me GREAT info on my first post though!
I've gotta stop this habit.

Make sure not to settle for something that you don't want just because the dealer has it in stock. Sure its faster to get but really it takes so long to get approved what's a few more weeks to get exactly what you want? And usually at a better price...

Good luck finding data like what you are looking for, its generally protected. I know noone sees our data from our website.

Might need a site modification to get that data but then even if it's applied it may be only available to admins.

Didn't read the details just looked for the option and found this http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=839925

I find that most of the questions I have are already answered in existing threads. I use the "search" function and that cuts down on redundant posts. Why ask the same question three times when it's already been answered?

Post by dano99 » Fri Mar 09, 2012 8:39 pm

Just got my SW 41 back from Accurate Ordnance, LLC. They did an excellent bbl threading job on my 41.
Would highly recommend them. Have some pics but I can't seem to attach them ?
My can is in the safe at the gun shop, NFA cashed check on 2/29/12. Have a long wait now.

Won’t mention brand of suppressor I bought to avoid negative comments on it that I’ve read on this forum.
Hint: named after a small bird.

I'm in the same boat. Years lurking around trying to learn. Hope to make my 1st purchase soon. Thank to the community for having a place to search people's experience and opinions.
