What gives! Sigforum

I figured I would officially join Sigforums in case I wanted to post a question, etc for expert insight on Sigs. Now pending 24 hrs into the approval process. What gives? Is that normal? No mods present?

This is my favorite forum bar none. Just curious as to why the delays.

Surely you are joking right! Close to 24 hrs....still patiently waiting.....

Oh well. I know we have lots of GT members that hit that one too. I will just be patient.

Para is good people but there's so many folks that have been baned that simply just get another email account & open another account in another name..
He used to moderate the S&W as well & has alot of time & money tied up in his forums..
You'll like the SIGFORUM, It's the #1 place to find out what you wanna know as far as SIGs are concerned..

This is correct. They don't have quite the shennanigans and/or school yard bully routine that some forums do. With that being said GT is pretty decent about keeping the riffraff away as well.

The guy that runs Sig forum is a jerk. He just can't tolerate anyone who disagrees with his opinions. "The administrator is the school yard bully. Wonder how he made out with his DUI. Just goggle his handle and you will see my point."

As far as a forum is concerned it a great place for information on Sig pistols. A lot of very knowledgle people there. Great picture posts in the gallary section of pistols and AR15 of members. Some people I know just lurk and dont post.

Well....still no access...LOL. No worries, but I will say, this is the longest I have ever had to wait for access to a forum.

Did go to the range last night and ran my first Sig (a 2022) through some COF's and had a blast. My bud ran his P226 beside it, so we had fun.

HOLY SMOKES!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess the DNA lab was backed up or something!

Hmmm....well at this point and speed, I will likely have another Sig in the herd when/if I do gain access, which will work out well.

I never got an email when they authorized mine. I just tried one day and it worked. Mine was about 7 days.

My gf's dad is a member at Steel City, so I go down there with him when we get a chance also took the Vickers class there earlier this year; that place is nice. When we're in the Ham, we usually just go down to ATI to shoot a few boxes. We're about to move to Hoover, so I will probably join at Steel City in the coming months. If you're ever in B'ham and want someone to shoot with, send me a P.M.; I'm always interested in meeting fellow enthusiast.

Good luck with the Sig Forum registration.

When you get to the Ham, PM me bro. I will be glad to show you my range too......a lot cheaper and less crowded. Not as "pretty" but just as functional. Great pistol range. Only draw back is we only have a 100yd rifle range. USPSA club housed there as well (we have 5+ pistol bays).

ATI is nice and they run IDPA style tourney's on Monday nights I believe. Me and my shooting buds do the same thing at our range when we go. Usually we have 3 or so shooters, so it makes range time fun and your ammo goes a long ways.
