    Ah Authority intervention to remove distasteful or disturbing things.

    You can see how the right to bear arms will be difficult to hold onto in the publics eyes, when gunwoners cannnot even support free speech on their own forums.

    We ban things that 'upset us personally' just like someone wants to ban guns 'because they knew someone who got shot'

    tsk tsk my fellow gunowners

    To all

    I feel exactly the same as Boyd feels and others here have also expressed the same feelings since the format changed.

    I have been on LR hunting since the beginning 3 years ago and "if" I have helped anyone along the way I am very satisfied with that. That's the "only" reason I came on when asked by Len to do so.

    Since the forum administrators have decided to eleminate the "Competition section" and also the "Ultra Long-range" section, I don't feel it is a "true combined" Longrange hunting forum any longer.

    It has been a pleasure posting and I think I'm just at the age where I don't feel I want to post here any longer or take any crap from anyone who has not walked in my shoes over the past 25 plus years.

    I have been longrange hunting longer then "some" here began shooting their BB guns.
    I have nothing to prove to anyone and have done most everything I set out to do in the Longrange hunting fields and mountains across this country.

    If any of you run into me in Colorado or Pennsylvania your welcome to set up your bigeye optics and glass the far terrain along with me. You can even shoot my rifle if you find an animal you want and we will make sure you kill the game cleanly.

    I may place an ad or two here but, this forum and posting on it does not interest me any longer since it has been changed, thanks again to the administrators and owner of the site.

    Good luck and good shooting to all.

    Keep watching, there may be another site coming in the future which will be dedicated to "true longrange and ultra longrange hunting and competitive 1000 yard shooting."

    Sincerely
    Darryl Cassel [​IMG]

    As an add on here---If you want to reach me for any reason, my email is either Dcassel@aol.com or Dcassel@penn.com

    Best wishes to both of you. Thanks for your contributions over the years. If you start a forum elsewhere you are very welcome to promote it here.

    Whoops, sorry, Chris, my fault.

    I meant to bring you up to date on the "moderator" thing. As part of the upcoming switch in software next month and quite a few other changes to mark our 3rd anniversary we are going to go to a co-administrator setup. No moderator titles (software willing) and just Ian, Dave and I as co-administrators. Nothing personal at all, I just forgot to email you what with all the other distractions going on lately.

    Sorry. [​IMG]

    Boyd and Darrel, I am truely sorry to hear all this, it just don't seem right! But becuase this is a great Nation we have choices in our life. I have been reading this site for awhile now about 2 years and it just don't seem right to not here about your 30goodling mowing down the boogielinger and so on. I have had many good belly laughs at you and Boyd's on goings. I feel you both are top noch PA! guys in my book and I hope you do get a page up and running. I'll follow!

    Ohh no...
    Actually, I've never met you but I believe I'll see you at Williamsport matches someday. I'll try to shoot one of your worn-out benchrest rifle this summer. I want to know what it is "like" to shoot at 1000 yards.

    Oh well... "There is nothing left to say unless it is horizontally". Good luck to you and of course, I'll email you if I have some questions. Later, I'll contact 338-378 that I have some ideas for his next Point Blank project.

    Well, Iam sick to hear of anyone leaving.
    Boyd, you gave me my first "fix" for my .300 UM, and told me to use RL25 with 180gr. pills.

    I wish you all well. This forum and the people here mean alot to me. I love the guys at AR, but this site has enabled me to glean sooo much information. And Iam thankful for that...sakofan..Bummer [​IMG]

    I also wish no one any ill will, but I will follow the 1000 yd and Ultra Range shooters into Hell if necessary. I will drop in occassionally to see what's happening, but it will not be a significant part of my life any longer.

    As an aside, the Pa contingency are as great a group of guys as I have found anywhere. If they weren't proud enough to feel the slap in the face they got, they wouldn't be the men I know they are.

    I just hope that LRH doesn't make the next cut to be those that would use less than .25 caliber as inhumane or suitable for hunting. And then there are those awful black guns that can support a bayanet.

    We do not need division among our shrinking ranks and I do not appreciate the smallness that caused this divide.
