    This is my virgin post.

    On Saturday, I won an account here on OT from a large gun forum contest. I have never messed with OT much, but figured I would try it out since it was a free account.

    I did a few searches for my place of residence and a few hobbies of mine, and was surprised to see a decent amount of people here that live in my area.

    Anyways, I love guns, and own more than a couple. I'll try OT out and if I like it, I'll stay. If not, then at least I gave it a whirl....

    Nothing fishy about it. One of the prizes (the one I won) was a free OT membership. That simple. Otherwise, I doubt I would have ever joined up.

    I am new here, and am not sure how the mods feel about folks mentioning other URLs here. Let me put it this way, if you at all into internet gun forums, then odds are very high that you have been to this other website. It is one of the biggest gun forums I have found. And I have found quite a few....

    Again, I am new here and don't want to get in trouble....

    I don't know of any history of any similar members here. I signed up in 2006 due to someone's recommendation, but never posted nor looked around in OT. I just now activated my account with the paid subscription I won.

    Guns. Well, lets see. I am absolutely in love with Glocks.... Sigs, H&Ks, and most any .22lr are at the top of my list too.

    Mods are pretty relaxed here, way beyond most other forums on the interwebs.

    Free to register (which I did a year ago), but you don't get many features with the freebie method so I never bothered .... But whatever. Does everyone that is new get analyzed in this manner? Just wondering.....

    when you post a thread like yours, saying that you "won an account" to a free website and then dont mention the other forum, yes.

    p.s. dont make threads anymore

    I don't mention the other website because I have been on other websites where I bring up various other URLs and everyone starts whinning and crying at how I am attempting to attract members to the other URL.

    Thats my reasoning, and if you don't like it, then oh well. Not my problem.

    Now back to guns....

    If you're really not Light Speed I would seriously consider chaning your user name. If you think this subforum is harsh with skepticism, the main forum will eat you alive. Not to mention, you even own a Mustang...

    I can vouch for Lightsped, I've seen several of his posts on the gun forum he mentioned. Saw the pics of you and your SIG at the range!

    Pretty much. Don't take it too personally...I too was once a n00b and treated like shit. It's just the OT way. If you hang around here long enough, you'll lean to accept it and eventually appreciate it. :) OT is notorious for not being very welcoming to new members. It's sort of an initiation; pretty much everyone has been there, done that. ;)
