Man, I would hate to see anyone get banned. The truth be told, I enjoy hearing people's opinions AND seeing some of the opinions get shot down with cold hard facts.

Alaska Po Po and Mohha don't need outside people adding fire to their debates. I enjoy reading the exchanges and when both of you get real and stick to the facts. It is informative.

I really believe I would love to hang out with both of you!

Anyway, I see Mohha as a "been there done that" person who has lot's of wisdom from his experience and mistakes we can all learn from.

I see AK PoPo as a pretty cool guy "for LE" who has done his home work and has worked hard for the answers we all seek. Is he always right? None of us are, but he tries real hard to come up with all the answers.

When you all make it personal and take jabs at each other, I believe that is where the thin ice appears. You both have old wounds and it is too easy for you all to get started. I have seen each of you take the first jab so no one holds the moral high ground IMHO.

I'm saying this as a peace maker because I would miss you fellers if the ax was to fall.

I believe the frustation stems from the fact that ballistics does not have concrete explanations of what caliber and ammo is best to stop any attacker.

We are lucky that we live in a time where we all have so many choices and would explain why at one time or another we have all become confused or at least misled down the ballistic trail we all travel.

We are all seekers of the perfect gun and load. I want to believe what the data indicates because light and fast is easier to shoot with more capacity. I want to believe I don't have to carry a cannon to get the job done.

The sad truth is, just hold the rounds in your hand and look for yourself. Common sense should tell ourselves something as well. Deep down we know it. We just can't prove it.

I think this is my first time posting on this forum. As a rule, I read the rules, the stickies and then as much of pages 1-4 as I can stand, or going back a few weeks.


My second post will be a new thread on some ammo I received...it looks like a disproportionate amount of the ammo is suffering from set back.

'Drew out and about.

It just feeds the cycle of ignorance. Feel free to PM me concerning this matter as I'd love to express my views...
Quite frankly, I've never understood caliber wars. Nor have I understood religious wars. Or the Fords vs. Chevies arguments. Maybe that's why I drive BMWs.

Cheers!

We educate ourselves on the limitations as well as the merits of a particular caliber thru this & other forums with intellegent posts & research & PRACTICE. I for one have learned a lot in a short time. Thanks for a great forum Eddie.

From what I have read the best handgun round is only 80% effective.

Not that I am owed an explanation or expect an answer, but I am kinda disappointed that a productive thread where 9 out of 10 people were behaving and many respected members were participating got closed.

Not that life is fair, but should one person's remarks, that were only 1% Of their content, shut down an entire thread and deprive many who were behaving and constructively participating?

I'm not taking a shot at the moderator, and sure are not looking to debate this issue, but many should not suffer for the actions of a few.

I hope this. "throw the baby out with the bath water" does not persist. Many people who were warned earlier where behaving really well.

It's not my intent to throw stones, I could understand how moderating caliber wars could get old and patience could wear thin.

I am just bummed because I was learning something and there were some very respected members participating adding to the validity of the discussion.

Please don't take any of these comments as disrespect for this forum.

That is the furthest from my intent.

It seems to me everyone should use the caliber/model that fits them best, depending on what you intend to use it for...i guess it all boils down to how accurate you are with your firearm. I carry a Glock 23, I have no idea as to why i like the .40 caliber but I'm extremely comfy shooting it, and never seem to stray too far. I have other pistols but i always seem to pick up the 23. My girlfriend shoots a 26 and loves it..no matter what make, model, or caliber you shoot...its almost ALWAYS fun killing cardboard isn't it?

One of the biggest things I see on Caliber Corner is certain people will continue to jump into a topic that they have nothing to add and post the same agenda fueled bashing over and over again and then sit back and play the victim to the mods.This is called Troll baiting for you guys that are new to forums.We all know what members do this and always fall into there traps,lets start just telling them ok and wacth how fast they vanish without fuel for there Troll fire.

The biggest problem we have are the internet stalkers (Trolls) who follow a poster they don't agree with or who they simply don't like from thread to thread and internet forum to internet forum just to flame him. Those same posters usually never address the original posters question either.
This place has been cleaned up a bit thanks to the moderators. The rest of us just need to act like adults and not act like trolls and internet stalkers.

2nd is you need to give everyone 3 strikes and let them know before you ban them from the server becuase what can happen is your just banning someone becuase you don't like there post and it my be there first time they were fighting with someone there needs to be a way to track persons.

And every fourm should have a sticky with the posting rules someone shouldn't have to go looking for them.

The easyer you make it for someone to fallow the rules the more they will. No one reads the rules when they sign up.
It sounds like you are giving orders and not making a request?

And maybe adding a spell checker to your postings might give you a little more authority and credence.

This is the biggest problem on Caliber Corner,it's the keyboard ballistic experts that troll these forums and are relentless with the same post over and over to start a fight.Good point made Pat we need to just act like adults and stop paying them any attention,thank you for some good advice.I just hope the mods see these people for what they really are and deal with them so GT becomes a adult like forum again.

Last time I checked, it was free to post here. That means if the people who DO pay for it (the mods and Eric) say cut it out, people should just cut it out because they (the mods and Eric) provide it for us by their own good graces. Some of the arguments are really silly.

I don't get why people argue about calibers.... An SJ ESC round from a 9mm can be better than a .40 ball. And a .22lr can still stop an attacker.
