Ok heres the deal, i believe in my heart that the reason this site works is because of Sam, nope i don't have any personal feelings, weve never talked on the phone as i have a couple of you, and not the sort of friendship i have with a number of you.. That being said, i know that his posts and his guidance makes this site what it is.. besides that i really have spent a life time following chain of command, and will NOT go against what Sam decides on this..

Snake (gonna have to call ya snaks buddy) is one good hearted goofy as a loon appalachian poor kid who has a big heart, was part of gunslot from the start, and only mistake was wanting to impress us all with statements that weren't true..

The boy has owned up to all of that.. He was, and pretty sure will be a regular contributor, not just a "hows the weather" thing.. He had some great posts.. Only issue was not attribution (where they came from Snake).. I for one would like to see him back on.. But consider this (you guys don't have to, but to be honest it works for me) a para military type site, where our rank might not mean shit, but the pres does.. im asking you all.. if you want Snake back then make that clear to Sam..

Sam... This is going to be your call (in my book).. im asking that you welcome the kid back with open arms... come on big guy ...give him a hug... ha ha.. Come on..lets be the "full" crew again.

I don't get it

everyone keeps saying that this is sam's site, and he decides who can and can't be a member. THIS IS A PUBLIC FORUM. ANYONE CAN JOIN. It has always been that way. If someone breaks the forum rules, ANY of the moderators has the right to delete posts and/or ban members. While Sam is good to have around, this is not his personal site (Sam, your still a liberal prick). Snake was banned because he was outted as a liar more than once, more than twice... let me get my calculator out. Personally I don't give a shit if he stays or not. I always took him as he is, and never took anything he said to heart. Thats the way it is with a few other people as well. My only problem with him was when he would tell new members (who didn’t know any better) that he was an expert on sniper rifles and tactics etc... Sam has the right to ban his account again, so does greasy, so do I. Sneaky snake, you are on very thin ice, and its starting to crack... hope you can swim. Stop stealing my root beer.

First off let me make this clear.. I'm NO sheeple, and secondly while i like Sam, i don't view him as a personal friend.. What i do view him as is the PRIME reason that this site is as enjoyable as it is..

Reap.. your seriously into weapons, and if someone had a question on battle rifles i would defer to you in a heart beat.. You also have a tendency to like a less "verbal" site.. ie "more factual".. and i think for our general site credibility thats really important..

i also agree that thier might be a bit more "hows the weather" stuff than necessary.. i think that exchange of pleasantries and friendship is important, but in the best of all worlds it should be in moderation..

Ok the issue of "Sams site"... A. this did not come from Sam, he has in no way expressed this, i do think a lot of us feel that the ONE rank that matters is the president thing.. Sam does guide, like a good editor the ebb and flow of conversation..

Look i can read write and count to 10 ive noticed on more than one occasion that when the conversation gets to dry and technical, Sam will post something humorous.. When its gone a little to far toward the political side he will post some thing on guns.. By FAR and away the highest number of posts are Sams, and they really do guide what the site talks about that day..

Admittedly since the new change i haven't seen that as much, but i really do believe that to be the case.. All one has to do is take a look at Sams site and the posts he makes... That my friends is gunslot.. Again saying this from the perspective of maybe having more of a "chain of command" focus than others, but not saying it based on friendship.. I for one don't think we give Sam the respect and credit he deserves..

Sheesh.. Sam if i ever show up on your door step (f'n heath'n) your buying the first round..
