Well with you being gone for four years you missed all the fun with people trying to sell there wares here that were not real (USGI) or didn't ever send the item after getting the money. The run on ammunition and mag's were taking a toll on the newer members here. So The Firing line Forum Administrators lock-up (had the software changed) the Classified § to new members that the Forum didn't know that well. After some thirty posts/threads we would get to know the member and trust them. The new member/dealers only here to sell and leave, didn't like the new rule and left real fast. You deleting some 11 of your previous threads/posts will take you a real long time to get to thirty.
Well working on my 30 post rule
Two new owners in that time span as well have come and gone.

Oh by the way, try getting that chip off your shoulder as well. Trying to start a fight is not what this M14 Forum is about.
