Well, since we are going to have a biatch session… my .22LR cents worth.
Early on, I made a comment, dealing with training, practice, muscle memory, and that with all of that you react as you have trained, that you automatically disengage a safety when you draw, and do not need to pause or lose time in the draw to do so.
The other person made a false accusation, accused me of being unsafe, using a firearm on ‘autopilot’ which means totally without thinking or planning (which is totally opposite of planning, training, practice and muscle memory), and when I attempted to clarify to explain that he was wrong and what I said, he repeated his accusation of unsafe firearms handling.
I responded with my OPINION of his intellect, and was flagged… all while he was NOT.
I also thought about leaving, as it seemed certain people could make false accusations and get away with it, while defense of your comment put you in the penalty box.
But hey, even with that knowledge, it is still a place to discuss viewpoints (though there are far more here that are actually less concerned with the Constitution and the law than one would have thought, but that is for another discussion), and while I did avoid the ‘community’ for some time, I did read the occasional article and comment, and remained.
Though I still miss the old online monthly newsletter, which to me had a better format than the new newsletter, this is not that bad a place.
Many of us have been there, and many of us have been in the penalty box.
