    Checking on downforeveryoneorjustme says it's down. A handy web site when you want to know for sure.

    They probably had too many pop ups and other Effing Adds built into that site and it crashed.

    I'm happy to be a Bonus Member(20.00 per year) besides not being bothered by pop-ups,I've learned so much from the others and made some very good shooting buddies as well as internet friends.

    Hope Jay is ok,not sure where the servers are located though but I imagine no elec. from Irene is why it's down.

    I am also a Bonus member and ejoy not having all the pop-ups. I have bought and sold many items and guns on this site. It is a great place to discuss shotguns.

    Jay lives in Alabama but don't know where the servers are located.

    One of the mods posted on SGW's face book page he tried calling Jay yesterday but couldn't get through.

    It's no great loss. I gave up on that site a long time ago. When posters there make their way here, I just refer to them as chum. They generally get educated real quick.

    While this site isn't for everyone, I still consider it the most educated group of shotgunners around. People here know their guns and their shooting!

    Thanks short shucker it's nice to be welcomed. And folks wonder why trap shooters are such a friendly group.

    Sorry if you feel offended hopper', but very few of the shotgunworld regulars do well on this site. We call it as we see it and try not to white wash things.

    I looked up the server site for SGW and found Virginia.
    I suspect the hurricane did shutdown their power or
    something. They should be back up shortly, I am guessing.

    SS, you admit to being from shotgunworld and then go on to refer to people that come from there as chum? Wouldnt that make you chum also? Please educate me. Real quick.

    "They generally get educated real quick."

    I have certainly learned something about you. Thanks for the warning.
