Maybe start there before starting another guns and cruising thread.

Hint: Im not sure I have seen a gun thread yet that wasnt eventually closed...
I'll take your advice. No point turning this thread into a serious conversation.

Re: New Ad, Guns On the Forum

I'm gonna take mine on the boat. And it doubles as an anchor. It's much better than a Rocna.

A google images search for willy waving was not as explicit as expected. Can't wait to see the ads i'm going to get.

Re: New Ad, Guns On the Forum

Different members see different ads. They are served based on a number of variables including your geographic area, your past search history (google is very, very wise...) and even based on key words on the page you are currently viewing.

Recently I was shopping for some plane tickets and now all I'm seeing are ads from travel agents - mostly for cruises on large (shudder) Carnival lines trips.

Regardless of the ads you see there have been no changes regarding gun discussions.

Re: New Ad, Guns On the Forum

C'mon Joe--say it ain't so!!-a gun thread that degenerated into humour and sexual (in various forms) innuendo. Barkeep- all round.

I was getting ads for Mini Coopers six months after I had bought one.
