This "Welcome Back" message was originally posted at the re-activation of THF about a year ago. It is as valid now as it was then, so it remains in place, simply to clarify the intent of the forum. If there are any questions, please feel free to e-mail or Private Message me or any other staffer.

Very best regards,

Welcome BACK, to many, and an initial welcome to some. Some will call this The NEW Firing Line, and, in ways, it is. Mostly, though, it is simply a continuation of what TFL was when it closed down at the end of 2002. The bench mark has already been set, and we simply need aspire to remaining at that level.

This particular forum is far more technically oriented than some of the others on The Firing Line, and, so, we have historically had far less, uh, vigorous discussion and downright argument than on, say, Legal & Political, and General Discussion. Everyone has an opinion, certainly, and I want everyone to be comfortable in expressing his/her own views on a topic.

About the only hard and fast rule here in Full Auto forum is that, like them or not, there ARE some laws and regulations which must be followed. Please, no discussions of anything which might appear to be in violation of the law.

Me, I’m basically lazy. My goal is to rock along, watch the proceedings, actually “moderate” as little as possible, and contribute from time to time.

Again, welcome and I look forward to us all having a lot of good times together.

Thanks for the welcome. I just joined today. I'm writing a
story, and would like to know whether any semiauto shotguns
were available for general purchase in 1969. Thanks.

Glad to have you on board, modestandrew.

As you take time to browse around TFL site, you'll notice there is a dedicated Shotguns forum. There is a wealth of information available there, and some extremely knowledgeable scatteergunners frequent the place. I suggest you re-post your question on that forum - - You'll come a lot nearer obtaining comprehensive information in the specialized area.

Normally, it is frowned upon to do multiple postings in various areas, but this would be an exception. But - - Don't be a stranger on Full Auto. :p

Best regards,

A blog about the laws concerning NFA firearms. I found it to be very informative.
