I have made many gun profiles for this site and try to add as much info as possible. I love profiles that allow you to know a lot about the gun from the one pages dossier...and "knowing is half the battle...G.I.Joe!!!"

So I have asked the Wonder Twins known as MarvQuin to update the look of the gun profiles. I think that in their current state the leave much to be desired.

A few ideas I had were as follows:

1. Add medium thumbnails of the available pictures to the top of the profile. So you can see what pictures are there with the ability to click on them to see the full-sized version.

2. Take the statistics and filled in information of the guns and have boxes to the right with the info organized in a standard form. Sort of like the boxes on the right side of the screen for Wikipedia.com.

3. When creating a profile, have the "roll over" ability on the title descriptions for the information being asked for that line. An explanation of exactly what is being asked for.

These are just a few I thought of in a quick hurry to post this. This site is maintained by MarvQuin and mods, but ran by you, the masses. So please drop suggestions in the comment section below (don't forget to click "submit") and lets make this site even more flashy and awesome than it already is!

I like the ideas

mentioned. I just can't think of any of my own. I really like Snake's idea of being able to add the videos too.

First Naked chicks are always welcome, I agree with Snake and Randy with video, and some thumnails that let you go right to a subject being talked about now and then the hottest subject of the week or 2 days. An easy way to navigate and pictures, I am having a hell of a time tryibg to get them positioned right and stay in place even. AAAHHH! JLC

Randy; You know me better than that, I am not talking about this site being for Porn or anything close to that. You guys are the most informed and believe in what they do and want, and have helped me a Hell of a lot with a lot of stuff and none having anything to do with naked chicks. I just do not mind a pretty girl in a scantily clad pose once in a while. You are right my friend and do not ever want to put that in jepardy,( cannot spell that either) and you are right snake too. If you want porno go to those sites. Just wanted you guys to know what I meant and not take it wrong. I may have a tip-- I was told by a friend that a cheap crossman laser sight, usually used for a BB-gun, and Walmart sells them for 19.95. Will slide on any rail pistol, or rifle. He tried it on a PS-9 and no tools just slide on and in daylight 80 feet was right on and highly visible. What do you guys think? Try it out? or No I am gonna try it, this weekend and let you know, but if anybody else has done it already let me know. I will be gratefull. As my brother always says to me when he is leaving. ( Be cool, fool ) Do not know what that means nowadays?

One more thing, I am backing out of Dennys after a sunday brunch, and a squabble breaks out behind my car. To my wifes dismay, I get out and two young guys are screaming at an old guy for hitting his door against theirs, when he got out. His wife is crying, scared. So I say hey fellas show me the damage? I get from one a none of your business, the other says there isn't any.

So I ignore the first one and ask the old guy if he meant to hit the guys car when he opened the door. He says of course not and I appoligise and will pay for damages. I turn to the guy who owns the car and said just a minute before their are no damages. I say then why are you two guys making these good folks into basket cases when they have offered an appology and payment if necessary. The cars owner said , I don't know, but thanks, we are stupid the way we are acting, and they walked away and drove off. The old guy thanks me and his wife is wanting to hand me money like I saved his life. I said no thankyou Maam but I would appreciate a prayer for those two fellas making a big deal out of nothing. Consider it done young man, she said. I said have a nice day. She made me feel good when she said young man to me at almost 59 years old, and my wife gave me a lecture of how I am not that young anymore to get involved with that kind of stuff, but admitting she knows they would have lost in a hand to hand fight with me. What the hell is the matter with everybody, a slight tap to this guys piece of shit car, and what did he think he was gonna get besides giving the old people a heart attack. That ruined my week now, so I started to lift my dumbells again. Wife hates that though. But really, what is going on fellas? , is their that much hate! JLC

And I never intentially meant to imply anything by it. I too enjoy looking at scantily clad ladies. If they are (correctly) holding a weapon, then that makes it so much better. Personally I like redheads. Never had much luck with them, but there is something about a redhead that stirs me.

Personally, I have no experience with the laser that you are referring to. If you check it out, then post some sort of review. Maybe call it something like "Cheap Laser..." tell us how it worked out, what it needs to really work or to work better. That could save lots of folks some money.

Finally, as for the two punks. Good for you. It seems that you held your cool yet you took charge of the situation and calmed things down. You also let them know that there was at least one witness to their bullying the old couple. In some places, they (the young punks) could have been arrested for terroristic threats. John, when you and I were kids, we were taught by our parents and those around us that you RESPECT your elders! Today, kids are NOT taught that. If our parents had seen us doing that we would have likely had our butts busted, even if we were 25+. We were also taught to take responsibility for our actions. Today, kids can get away with saying "I watched violent cartoons and because of that I'm a violent person." When we were kids, if we said that, someone would have taken us out behind the woodshed and taught us about violence. Can't do that anymore. The libs have convinced too many people that they are violent because they watched violent T. V. or they were abused because they were spanked. The younger generation has no respect for anyone, not even themselves. As for the being called a "young man" I know how you feel. I'm 49 and not long ago a lady called me a young man too. She looked to be about 40-45 maybe even a little younger. I told her "Thank you" and smiled. She asked what I meant so I told her that I suspected that I was older than her by something like 8 years or so and I appreciated the compliment. After that we parted with both of us having smiles. Get your mind out of the gutter, we didn't do nothing. LOL.

Thanks for doing that with the two guys. We need more people in the world calling people on their BS. I don't think there is really that much hate. I think what it is is that there are so many people that are spoiled and have never been called on their ways so that they don't know how to act. Since everything is so PC today and people are afraid to call people out, assholes grow bolder. There's always been an abundance of people who can turn into assholes, but in the past they would get the shit kicked out of them or run out of town or both. Until they learned to not be an asshole. That's why there are so many today. Because they've never had to stop and realize that they are being an asshole. Just like those kids. It never occurred to them that THEY were the assholes. Until you pointed it out to them. Then they realized and, thankfully, their parents taught them enough to feel bad about being wrong and they hopefully learned and grew a little from it. I know I needed my ass kicked a few times until I realized that maybe the problem might be ME. ;)

Thanks JLC

The old man may have been a WWII vet. I hope the kids really did realize how stupid they were acting. I think the biggest problem in our country today is no one wants to get involved or rock the boat. Again, Thanks for doing what is right.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

There are some

naked chicks here, and some who are scantily clad. Its just that since there is a policy here of no exposed genitialia they usually have a gun hiding that part, or they are being photographed from the side. Personally, I don't mind it as I'm here for the information on guns and the comaradie. I can get my porn fix from other sites. Don't get me wrong, I like looking at (most) naked women as much as the next guy. But there are ladies who visit this forum and I wouldn't want to offend any of them.

i agree with you on the subject,,my comment was meant as a joke, I don't wish to offend anyone either. I am enjoying the site for what it is ment for "The Guns". Yes the half naked women are nice but learning is more what i am looking for, as i said before I am not very knowedgable when it comes to them. So this is where i am starting.

Unfortunately, I didn't have someone around all the time to teach me a lot. Most of what I know, about them, I have learned through magazines like "Guns & Ammo" or "American Rifleman" or something like that. I have also learned from listening to people who were more knowledgeable than I was. Since we now have the internet, we can now reach out to more people and learn from their experiences and absorb the knowledge that they afford us. I learned some from being in the service, but I was in the Navy, not the Army or Marines where they get to know their weapons intimately. I learned more when I was a prison guard.

A wise man told me once, "God gave you two eyes, two ears, and one mouth. Why would he do that if he didn't intend for you to look and listen more than you talked?" I try to absorb everything I can like a sponge. Unfortunately, sometimes the sponge gets saturated and I have to hear something two or three times. I think that you should try to learn something new every day. If you do that, you will never stop learning, and you will be able to pass along information to others.

Randy,Guys

The site would not let me thank you guys after I wrote that appalling scene. But thanks guys for the I was right to do that and all. But if those punks went the other way, it could have gotten nasty. Because one thing that keeps me alive today is I can read when it is going to be a fight inevitabley. And the precious tenth of a second, is when I hit first, especially when 2 against 1. That has what my wife witnessed me do quite a few times.When we lived in jersey, and had our first daughter, we were going for the nightly ride to get her asleep, when out of no where a guy in a sports car runs right up my tailpipe and starts beeping and yelling out the window and flashing his high beams on and off. So I pull over thinking something or somebody is hurt etc.He pulls behind me and blows his horn, and starts screaming profanities at us out his window and the baby starts crying and all. So I flipped, it was only 6 months back in the states for me, and jumped out and grabbed him threw his window and drug him out and planted one on his face, Knocked him out cold, and good thing because first reaction was to kill him, but held back. Meanwhile a girl jumps out the other side and runs screaming into the woods there. I yelled I am not going to hurt you, but she never came back and guy did not wake up, so we left and went home and forgot about it. 12 years later at a party a youg lady just married and a senators daughter, walks up to me and throws her arms around me and kisses me and says my heroe at last. Not to appreciated from wife or her new husband, and I did not have a clue who she was other than a friends daughter. Yea, you guessed it, 12 yrs before my friend was a councilman, and his daughter was kidnapped that night and after I dragged the guy from the window and knocked him out she ran home and cops found a 45 pistol on his seat of his car. After many thanks and all we just left, did not want thanks, wanted to straighten out an asshole. But it turned out pretty good after all. So you never know what the future holds when you stop a jerk or two. John
