    New members.....

    Ok folks hats with the influx of new members that only seem to be joining to either buy or sell something?

    New blood is always welcome.

    I uses its a good reminder to everyone that Pu never know do how trustworthy anyone is that you are dealing with online (unless you have met the, face to face, even then....) just make sure you don't get ripped off folks!!

    Yes and you should have listened to the wise old man Pengy and started your post with "pardon me for saying LOC but" .....
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    ahhh... new members. New members are great and generally add to the community - there is a lot of "banter" on this forum though and it can take a while for a new member to get used to that. Members joining just for the "for sale" section are ok as long as they are up front and have reasonable expectations.

    New (and existing) members that list something in the for sale section and then offer it on trademe at a reduced price a few days later (particularly given TM charges success fees) are stupidly unrealistic in my opinion...
