I'm a new guy, and I posted a question about changing a sear spring for a lighter one in my Cobra on that other site. What I got was an answer that did nothing but insult my intelligence. One thing I can't stand is arrogance, and there seems to be a lot of that over there. One fine gentleman did give me an explanation that made sense, but it took a few days.

Arrogance is rampant over there. That's why most of us are here.

Sorry to see you go Dean. Never enough time and it makes
us all realize just what being mortal is. You have been a true friend to me
and I will miss you every day.

Some folks' behavior can be pretty appalling when they're hiding behind a username and a computer screen.
Another way to say that is the world has way too many ass-holes... And it sure sounds like they have more
than their fair share over there!!

Don't get me wrong, I love my Hi Points, but for a forum that's supposed to be about affordable firearms, they sure have a lot of gun snobs. :roflol:

i lost my desert eagle privlages when i complained about them. said they were a chunky half finished firearm but i loved them. still was enough to throw the world into chaos. got the same treatment when i said my XD was better for me than a glock. you just learn that there are assholes in every forum. you get purists who think chrysforderlet are the only car manufacturers on earth. you get nazis who shun you if you paint your tractor the wrong shade of red or green. the way i see it. do what you like. own what you like. think what you like. and be what you like. as long as you arent forcing it on someone else. you seem like a smart guy. wouldnt even let it get to you. tell em to bend over and kiss their own wee arse.

I must say that I have to agree. I quit giving a shit what other people thought a long time ago. Took the wife a little longer but she finally got with the program. My second daughter hasn't figured it out yet at 30 years old. The other 4 got it.
