Angry Read please.

It doesn't pay to read the posts anymore. People keep asking the same things that have been asked many times before. If they would read the posts, 95% or more of the questions were already asked and responded to.

Man you got that right. At least the posters asking the same old questions are TRYING to LEARN something instead of trying to start something.

I agree.

I don't mind ANYONE asking questions that we have all read before. Any kind of question regarding our great hobby is welcome by me, even if it is tired out one.

I'll never find fault in anyone trying to learn about something.

Sometimes using the 'search' feature takes FOREVER, and then you get all kinds of results. It can be VERY confusing, especially for a new person. A straight forward question is always the best. It's faster, easier, and you get a more concise answer without having to sift through a thousand different results trying to find something that you can use.

Gunny, we constantly get new people that have questions. We have established members that get new or different firearms and have questions. Sometimes people ask questions just to start a conversation, we are here to talk to each other. It would get really boring if all we did was read old posts. We could buy books and magazines if we just wanted to read. We get the same old "Can I shoot 22lr in my 22 mag" questions. How can you NOT answer that? Someone is gonna get hurt if you don't.

I understand your frustration with same old, same old. It is your choice to read them or not. I might point out that sometimes the same old questions lead to really interesting threads. Sometimes new members or members with very few posts like your self can lead a thread in an interesting and new direction.

I agree with the others here. Pick your threads to read. If it becomes boring to you, then don't read them. Life gets boring the longer you live. But I myself ain't ready to die yet. When I get bored, I find something to entertain me. That's why I come here. Sometimes it gets boring on here because nobody is posting any new threads to read. I like the new posts feature. Even if some of the new posts are the same ole stuff, at least they are new threads to read and maybe I might find something interesting in one of them.

I think its more interesting for folks to interact ....than to sit silently on the sidellines.

The only foolish question is the one not asked

Search Function

This seems to be the most neglected part of the RFC web site, It should be the most used. There is an absolute wealth of information already laying there for anyone to tap into. This isn't meant to be a short answer to everyones questions but it will usually yield more info than you will recieve on any one individual thread. Some people get tired of responding to the same questions and therefore don't, so the person asking gets short changed. If you do a search and don't find anything then thats the question we're all looking for, something new. This applies mostly to the technical questions and the "Any Good" questions. As far as the conversations, reports and good humored sharing, keep those cards and letters coming in.

Good luck

Brad....YEP! GOT IT! but don't have my scope rings yet. I had to get them from Brownells. Nobody in NW Montana sells Tally rings and I wasn't aware that only Talley Rings fit Talley Mounts. They will be here Wednesday. I'm not too sick though, we have had 20mph winds everyday. On looks and feel though.......I want another Cooper!
