I got an overwhelming response to my request. Unfortunately it would be impossible to accommodate everyone, as it would only serve to make the 'yotes call shy. I have a member who will be coming to try to help thin them out.. I intend to keep all the member's names who responded, in my file, so I can possibly call on one of you in the future.
That said, I want to speak my peace. Anytime I, or for that matter anyone, posts something, members should have the respect to keep the thread on track. If someone is NOT looking for advice, don't give it, at lease on the open board. We have a pm system for that kind of response. When someone takes a thread off track, it often then starts a verbal war, or otherwise upsets the OP or someone who has replied to the OP, or "waters down" the intent of the thread My thread was no different than a wanted ad in the classifieds. If I had posted there, looking for a .22 rifle, I wouldn't expect someone to post saying they had a .458 mag for sale and then someone posting to that possibly starting a conversation about the virtues of the .458. Everybody needs to show some self control, and respect to a thread, and keep it on track. I have not placed this post here for discussion. If it gets a lack of respect and goes that way, I'll just have to pull the entire post. A lot of well meaning posts get pulled because of people not showing the respect to keep them on track, and in the long run it hurts the OP and his/her intentions for the thread.
