Is The Site off-line?

I just tried to log onto The Sight ( to look up some 1911 information and I got a "Timed Out" error message. Does anyone know if The Sight is having technical issues? Has the site been discontinued when I wasn't paying attention?

Try this...

You were looking for the wrong address. it's .org and not .com

1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger till you are ready to shoot.
4. Identify your target and know what is beyond it.

Domain name registration is good until June of 2022. That doesn't mean whoever owns it paid his server bill though. Or that his ISP is still operating. Could be any number of reasons for a site to be down.
"" Different site.
Spelling and grammar count!

Since White Eagle now knows how to check the site (post #4) we'll close this one.
