    i've only been around for a few days, so i'm still trying to get the feel of the place. please bear with my newb'ness. i'm just gonna shoot off a bunch'o questions to try to get my bearings so i can try to find the "vibe" and not go too much against the flow, so to speak.

    i realize each site has its own idiocincracies and i honestly do not have the time to dig through the archives and try to figure them all out. my bad. :wavey:

    what is the deal with milk? is this like an 87 thing on arfcom? does everyone go out for "milk" when they buy a new firearm? :rofl:

    do ya'll do dinner pics? ever? i don't care either way, i'm just curious. i haven't seen one yet....

    is there any 1 piece of advice that i should know around here. anyone that i shouldn't particularly piss off? or more importantly, 1 specific person i should TRY to piss off. :fawk:

    i am a laid back guy and joke a lot, so take it in good nature. :cool:

    i am a mod on another forum, so i know how it is when someone comes in and COMPLETELY breaks the flow of things. i'm just trying to NOT be that guy. that is all. :bigthumb:

    i'm just trying to skip the year's worth of learning curve and get it all done quick.

    any advice?


    speak now or forever hold yer fuckin' peace. :blue:

    Make sure that if you see a red orb to the left of a name, you troll them repeatedly. Green ones are good for that too.

    On a more serious note, its a pretty laid back place, just dont go around asking where you can buy grenades, full auto AK's or anything like that.
     
  3. That's a start.

    We all hate each other for the most part but keep posting here anyway. :big grin:

    Seriously we have a few douches. You'll pick them out over time.

  11. Maybe someone who can search will link to Want2Race's infamous thread. That's a classic one, and a great example of what not to do here.

    IIRC someone claiming they got MOA shots at 600 yards consistently. posted some sketchy ass looking targets, everyone called him out, and found other threads where he was lying.

    i havent' read the thread yet, but i will. what a :greddy:

    everyone knows you can get 1/4 MOA with a remmy 700, off a bipod, with off the shelf ammo....sheesh......

    you can even get 1/3 MOA if you file your fingertips with a file....you know....it makes it "sensative" and all. :rofl:
     
  20. That thread even had thormor making fun of himself in it. It was the best thread ever.
