    The content standards set forth in this section (the “Content Standards”) apply to any and all User Contributions and Submissions, your use of any interactive features of any of the Sites (except and to the extent additional terms and conditions apply to the use of one or more interactive features) and to any links or hyperlinks to any of the Sites or Content as described in the “Linking to any of the Sites and Certain Social Media Features” section set forth in Section 7 above.

    • infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other intellectual property or other rights of any other person;

    • involve commercial activities or sales, such as contests, sweepstakes and other sales promotions, barter or advertising; or
    • give the impression that they emanate from or are endorsed by us or any other person or entity, if this is not the case.
    We do not undertake to review User Contributions or Submissions or other material before it is posted on any of the Sites, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted.

    Accordingly, we do not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any information or material posted, uploaded, input or submitted to any of the Sites by us or any users, and we do not endorse any statements, representations or opinions expressed, posted, uploaded, input or submitted to any of the Sites by users. Any user’s reliance on information or material posted, uploaded, input or submitted to any of the Sites by other users shall be at user’s own risk. We assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or content provided by any user or third party.

    We may utilize volunteer moderators or administrators (“Volunteer Moderators”). Volunteer Moderators are established members who have exhibited a knowledge and adherence to the applicable forum rules and attempt to keep the Sites and applicable forum civil and spam-free. However, Volunteer Moderators do not work for or represent us, or our affiliates. Volunteer Moderators’ words and actions are their own, and Volunteer Moderators do not have permission to engage in any sort of business as a representative of us or any of the Sites.

    If notified by a user of information or material posted, uploaded, input or submitted to any of the Sites allegedly in violation of these Terms of Use, we may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith and our sole discretion whether to remove such information or material.

    Old Posting Rules...

    XVII. Posting Guidelines - GlockTalk Community Guidelines.

    Respect the GlockTalk Community

    Every community feature on GlockTalk involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and thousands of other users respect that trust. Please be one of them.

    Posting Rules

    1. No illegal content.

    2. No foul language. We are trying to maintain a familt environment and such language is not appropriate or necessary. This includes posting curse words that are deliberately misspelled or have special characters inserted in them to avoid the bad word filter.

    3. No rude or abusive language allowed, including flame wars. We do not allow GlockTalk to be used to deliberately trash, denigrate, or malign another forum or site. DO NOT drag your board wars over to this site or attempt to use this site as a staging point to start trouble on other sites.

    4. GlockTalk is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. Posts with sexually suggestive or explicit content are not allowed. That includes links to sites with such content. Similarly, Cheesecake/Beefcake threads and posts are not allowed here. If you want to look at, or post, pictures of scantily clad women or men, please do so elsewhere. This is not the place for it.

    5. Do not post or link to content containing graphic depictions of serious injury or death to people or animals. Any User Submission showing or describing someone or an animal being physically hurt, attacked, or humiliated will not be tolerated on GlockTalk.

    6. We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But, we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity). Posts with racist or extremist comments or content are not allowed. This includes links to sites with such content.

    7. Posts concerning politics, civil liberties issues, Law Enforcement issues and/or religion should be confined to the forums we have dedicated to those topics. Please do not argue these topics elsewhere on the site.

    8. Actions like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people’s personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts, crimes, or to violate the Terms of Use are taken very seriously at GlockTalk. Anyone caught doing these activities may be permanently banned from GlockTalk and may be reported to law enforcement.

    9. Unsolicited posts by companies and/or individuals promoting themselves, a website, or a product are not allowed. Please email for information on how to become a site sponsor.

    10. Do not reopen threads pertaining to subjects that have been previously closed.

    11. Do not post the same or similar thread in multiple forums. Select the forum best suited for the topic and post it there. Multiple postings with the same subject matter by the same member will not be allowed, and GlockTalk reserves the right to delete or move such postings at its sole discretion.

    12. We do not allow anyone to be registered under more than ONE member name. There is absolutely NO reason to have an extra account unless it is used for trolling purposes. If you are found to have more than one account, you will risk losing ALL of your accounts.

    13. Avatars of your own choosing are allowed for “Senior Members”, as long as they are tasteful in content, and conform to the rules above. Avatars should be used to express your likes, loves, and individuality, but there are limits. The Administrators and Moderators DO NOT want members using the avatar system to make bigoted personal, religious, or political statements. The avatar may not include scantily-clad, provocative pictures of women/men.

    14. Signature lines fall under the same rules as your avatars. If your signature line doesn't meet the above rules, it is not allowed.

    15. All the same rules listed above apply to the posting of pictures and videos. This includes content with language that would normally be censored by our bad word filter, if it were typed out. This also includes using videos for self-promotion, whether you are promoting yourself, your products, or your videos themselves.​

    Everyone is welcome to hang out here and express their opinions, but we expect anyone that chooses to post to do so within the confines of the posting rules above. GlockTalk reserves the right to close, edit, or remove any User Submission, posting, or thread that violates the rules listed here, or for any other reason, at the sole discretion of GlockTalk. Anyone that repeatedly violates the rules will not be allowed to participate here. You can disagree with someone, just do so like an adult.

    Above all else, we expect people to be treated with RESPECT!

    Thank you.

    We Enforce These Guidelines

    GlockTalk staff reviews flagged posts to determine whether they violate our Community Guidelines. GlockTalk does not and cannot review all information and materials that may be viewed on the Site. You acknowledge that GlockTalk is acting as a conduit by allowing you to submit and view materials through the Site and is not liable for any contents viewed through the Site. When GlockTalk reviews inappropriate content, GlockTalk removes them if deemed appropriate in its sole and absolute discretion. Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations and may be terminated in the sole and absolute discretion of GlockTalk. If your account is terminated, you won’t be allowed to create any new accounts.

    GlockTalk is for the Community

    Remember that this is your community! Each and every user of GlockTalk makes the site what it is, so don't be afraid to dig in and get involved!

    1. Have fun with the site. There’s a lot to see here, and lots of folks doing amazing stuff—one of them might be you! Equipment’s getting cheaper and easier to use all the time, so dive in and enjoy.

    2. Let folks know what you think. Feedback’s part of the experience, and when done with respect, can be a great way to make friends, share stories, and make your time on GlockTalk richer.

    3. You may not like everything you see. Some of the content here may offend you—if you find that it violates our Terms of Use, then click the button with the triangular exclamation mark below the post to submit it for review by GlockTalk staff. If it doesn’t, then consider just clicking on something else—why waste time with content you don't like?​

    Enjoy this community of Outdoor Enthusiasts!
