    Yesterday, Tuesday, Oct.25, I began having trouble logging on to the SHOTGUNWORLD website. Today, I am unable to connect with them at all.
    Is it just me or are others having this trouble? If so, does anyone know
    what going on?
    Thanks.
    Jack

    They are down. There is a Facebook group that is keeping track of their problems and progress. https://www.facebook.com/groups/228844355113/

    Looks like their server is down or off line.

    I like ShotgunWorld. But, I am on rural internet service (satellite) and SGW is one of the slowest responding websites I've ever seen. I've just about given up on viewing it. Maybe they'll get a new server and things will be better. I hope so. Of course, all those #*@! Chevy Truck ads aren't helping response time any, either.

    Thanks for the information. I had checked all the connectivity functions on my laptop and they all said everything was fine.

    Maybe it was then, but 'taint now. There was talk a few days ago that the site was under attack by some Far Eastern hackers. Don't the Chinese have anything better to do?

    ...a serious blow to MEC's free advertising program to be sure.

    The main page comes up now, but that`s it.

    Says it`s "Down for Maintenance."

    Regards, Pete

    The web site has been down for a few days, but it is now back up. I've been in twice this morning with no problems.

    Shotgunworld is down again since last night. Really wish they would get rid of their background advertising, it really taxes computers and slows things down.

    I got an error message MOnday that said I had been permanently banned. Contacted administrator & he said they had been spammed & would fix it. No luck yet after a good to go message from him.
