I hated EZ board.

I miss it now.

Indeed, I agree with requiem, the history is interesting and also I want to thank SKSseven for hosting this site.
This is without any doubt my favorite on-line hang out.

I like it here as well, though I ignored it mostly until I got the boot from ArfCom, even tried THR but it was full of moderate to liberal gun owners who have no concept of freedom

Here i have some kindred spirits though!

Hail FSN!, I became a member shortly after I started shooting at POP'S range (I even had the pleasure of meeting him) when I moved to P. Pines. Since then it has helped me find new friends and motivate my range skills and weapon collection. Thanks SKSseven, and Hail FSN. /:f

Lake City is FDCC, down here it's SFDCC, and in the very early days of FSN there was an FDCC-S.

Rob thanks for the clarification-not much of the tactical carbine type as I was
enamored early on w the AK; my perception of the AR was influenced by the
guys at FDCC. =D>

I can't get into the links; I think I joined in 2002 or 2003, but I don't remember. I do remember Nick kept asking me to join FSN, but I never used the net for anything but research. I'm glad Chris started this forum!

When I was in pre-law and wanted to be an lawyer, when Nick and Dean were alive, I cannot believe that all you guys annoyed the hell out of me with all your gun fire and shooting! It seems so odd since I shoot every day and help others to learn, now!

I remember when I first posted. I spent forever checking my spelling and grammer; I was so frightened of you guys!

The heck with school, I have a wonderful job with all great people--I'm so grateful!

Anybody here have old pics of POPs Range for our new site?

Frightened? Frightened!!??

You weren't so damned frightened when I was on the range one morning alone, doing some walking fire drills, and you came up behind me with one of the dogs and that BIG shiny revolver in your hand, yelling at me because you thought I was someone else who you didn't want on the property! #-o

Frightened, my ass! [smilie=pdt_xtremez_30.gif]

Actually, if you joined in 2005, I don't think you met Dean. What year did he pass on?

yea, but back then I didn't know how to shoot, so I could have had a canon, but it would have not done any good! Plus, I probably thought you were either The CIA or Environmentalists! Now, I know who you all are and what you all do and what you all own...shall I say more? HA! Zip!

Unfortunately. I've been with the UN for almost 10 years and have been to some of the worst places on earth. I'm also tired of living in NYC. I miss Florida... you guys don't know how good you have it.

If you look on google maps you can see it Right behind the publix shopping plaza in the south east west. I was rooming with fellow FSN'er Amstel78 at the time. We where both members on assault web and I just wanted to try making a board for fun. Amazing how far its come really. :ber

Ahh, those were the days. I miss it. Are you still on Marco? Will have to catch up soon. PM me your phone number if you get a chance.
