I am relatively new here, have been here for a week or so. I have looked everywhere to find out what the benefits are to being a paid member. I haven't found it. Can you make a sticky in this forum about what the benefits are to us called "Why become a paid member?" If it is as simple as paid membership allows us to provide the site, then so be it. But even at that I am sure that there are benefits such as member status graphic or something in the member's profile. If I am missing it, it is just because there are so many areas of Glock Talk that it doesn't pop out at me.
