    Dear GSSF'ers,

    Eric Powell, owner of GlockTalk is having severe financial problems due to his recent illness and needs some donations to keep GlockTalk on the air (read and click on his note at the top of the home page). I do not expect the members of the other forums to be of much help, but we GSSF'ers really need this board for communications. I'm mailing off a check as soon as I get to the office today. Please pitch in and spread the word. We just have to keep GlockTalk going. Give what you can. Every dollar helps. If you mail a check, include a note that you are a GSSF'er, so Eric knows we support him. I know I can count on my Team Sidearmor teammates for help. I pray that I can count on YOU! Take a moment to think about the fun we have had and friends we have made through this GSSF Forum. You may contribute electronically, but if you mail a check you can include a note of appreciation.

    Sincerely,
    Danny Ryan

    This board is a very valuable resource to me. I've improved so much as a shooter since I first joined some 20 months ago, especially in GSSF.

    I'm glad to help out.

    A few years ago Woof tried to raise some money for much needed ungrades to Glocktalk. There was little response from the other forums at that time. Everyone in this forum seems to back Eric 100% in his efforts and decisions. There are a lot of folks in the other forums that just don't care. My projections are based on history. The regulars in this forum are responsive to Eric's needs because we need this forum for GSSF communications.

    So far, all of my teammates on Team Sidearmor that are in town have contributed to the cause. I expect the ones out of town will contribute when they return.

    At present, I know of no other moderators that have posted a request in their forum. I've checked most, but not all, so I could be mistaken.

    Fair enough. However, I think Eric's plea appears to be well recieved. I intend to contribute when I get back home (don't like using paypal from public terminals)
