I'm 64 yrs old. I have been shooting since I was 3. Had my own rifle at 5. Been
dealing guns as long as I can remember. There is still a lot of things I don't
know. I own several Ruger handguns and rifles. I have bought over 100 new.
I just recently gotten Ipad and learned how to use it. I figured to join this forum
because there would be guys that were Ruger experts involved. I ask simple
black and white question and somebody posts picture of their gun. Another
posts he knows nothing about what I ask, then goes into what he knows about
another subject. Then 3rd poster comes on and "likes" the other 2 posts. It's
like playing board games with my 6 yr old grandkids. If I don't know anything
or can't add any intelligent info to discussion I don't comment in post. Anybody
else notice this.

Hang in there Drm50,

I been hanging around forums for 10 years, i have learned a lot, just from gleaning info from many guys, like yourself,

I think its up to you how deep you want to dig.

I have noticed that phenomenon on several forums, not exclusively RT. A guy wants opinions on a good 9mm SD round and it turns into a pissing match on 40 vs 9 or snubbie vs pocket rockets. WTH?

I'm sure I've posted some irrelevant stuff, but I try to keep to the thread topic and if I have nothing to offer, I won't participate.

On the other hand, if a thread is spiraling wildly out of control, I certainly don't mind poking fun at the culprits who caused it.

Well said. describes a common occurrence though. What thread is that? I'd like to wade in with my own unrequested opinion.

Sometimes people just get off track. It happens when we let our minds drift. When I first saw the thread title I thought it was a question about the thread drift perhaps in gun barrels. LOL I will not now get into barrels.

OOPS! I liked a photo. But then again it was on topic. I need 10 lashes with a wet noodle. Anybody know how to make homemade wet noodles?
