    It was suggested that a thread be started to see who would pay to access trapshooters.

    Well who would? I know this won't work, but I will throw it out there anyways. . .

    To make this easy, if you are in favor please reply, if your are not then don't.

    I say I would pay to access this site assuming it went to a different format that had different topics and a general "smack talk" / politics area. Then those that want to debate can go for it amongst FRIENDS and those that don't, well they can argue the shot size thing.

    I'm the same as you. It would be nice to have separate sections.

    Personally, I have made small donations a couple of times, plan to again & recommend all who use and enjoy the site consider occasionally sending a little donation to help David out.

    "Pay to Access----", no. I don't guess I would.

    sure i would pay, i feel like a 100 dollars a month would be a fair and honest price, it might weed out the undesirables too.

    Before the inmates redesign the asylum...

    Has anyone asked the owners/administrators if it's even possible, given the current state of their equipment and technology, for them to create a forum format that can separate paying users from non-paying users or traps posters from "smackers"?

    I have no problem w/ an annual fee but if you mean pay as you enter, I'd say no way. Time for someone to post David's address and I'll get off my rear and send a check.

    Yes, I guess I would support a fee based TS.com IF it were a reasonable fee. I think a better answer would to be to have a few more moderators kick a few more trouble makers OFF the site. We all understand how to take the trash out don't we?

    This will not be a realistic poll. Many will not post on this subject.

    Wow!!!!

    Some of you guys are your own worst enemy!!!!!

    You ask-------"how come we can't recruit and keep new shooters"!!!! And then we have the suggestion of 100 per month.!!! *^%^$%^#@^&&**(

    Even though this site is not affiliated with the ATA or NRA,,many think memberships to both should be mandatory!!!!!

    It is here I suggest to you gentlemen this-------Why can't the NRA recruit more than appx 4 million of the appx 100 million gun owners????

    No then,,,seperate rooms,,,or seperate "pages" of trapshooters.com!!!! All one needs to do is look at those "other" sites that broke up into seperate rooms!!!!! They "DIED"!!!!! Worthless!!!!

    And like "anything" that people wish to control,,,and weed out the "rubes",,the trash as you folks say!!!! Who defines "trash",,,,,Who decides that the differance between 7 1/2's and 8's and politics or anything "off-topic" is trash??????

    In a way,,,I sincerly hope some of gentlemen get your way!!!!! Yes,,,,I would like to see 100 dollars per month to freely converse,,,just like a gun club charges!!!!!!!!! Pretty soon,,,,,,some of you gentlemen will be typing questions and then anwering them yourselves because there will be NO ONE left!!!!!! Turn out the light and lock the door is the orders given to the last man out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes,, I can see already 150 to 200 hits on a "wad thread"!!!! Shot size and hardness will have you gentlemen responding for weeks on end!!!! OOOOHHHH and when we talk about "barrel bluing",,,Wow---there is a spike in trapshooters wifes gettting pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AKA Grammie.............

    Grammie ... is that you in front of me in the line weeded out trashy rubes or are you behind me?

    Talk like this will only cause arguments and right now we, as a group need a sing-a-long of Goombaya or whatever the name of that good ole' campfire song is.
