Every gun forum has it’s own culture but how do you explain to someone what any one is like versus any other one? I think I have a solution:
CalGuns.net: Is like an alcoholic 68 year old vietnam vet that got a dishonorable discharge after 2 days in country and never advanced his station in life any further than that. He’s an expert, you’re an idiot and if you don’t think exactly what he thinks then you’re not allowed to talk.
AR15.com: Is like a belligerent 17 year old boy with a foot fetish who claims to be an expert on everything but has never actually learned anything.
LongRangeHunting.com: Is like a sophisticated 35 year old woman in smart high heels and the kind of dress that tells you you can’t afford to even buy her a drink but, it turns out she likes Coors and is perfectly happy to accept a free one.
TheHighRoad.org: Is like an illiterate elderly rancher with advanced cirrhosis of the liver. It’s his way or the highway and no trespassing is allowed despite all the signs saying the exact opposite that are posted around the property.
SnipersHide.com: Is like Jack Nicholson. It runs up and laughs in your face in a very threatening and engaging way before suddenly clearly explaining the quantum chromo-dynamic model of the universe. Occasionally it bites you very hard and suddenly on the cheek for seemingly no reason and after a while you learn when to duck.
TheFiringLine.com: Is like a 5th grade classroom with a 3rd grader doing the teaching. Nobody is giving correct answers but since nobody is asking intelligent questions so it’s kind of a wash.
AccurateShooter.com: Is like a well read and unsociable special forces instructor. He recognizes expertise when he sees it yet he won’t hesitate to tell you you’re wrong but he also won’t waste a lot of time trying to convince you that you’re wrong if you won’t. He finds it more entertaining and a lot less hassle when you either take his word for it, reason it out for yourself or find out the hard way.
