    Len thanks for running a great site , I tell people about this place all the time that seem intrested in longrange shooting and hunting ingeneral , theirs a very friendly help atmosphere here and thats nice for new people.

    Len , one thing that I was wondering if maybe you might post a pop up when we log on or somthing here is that to remind eveybody that their are alot of younger people that may visit here as well as women and that somtimes we should keep a little better check on our language and content of some of the off topic post.

    Thanks again for a great place to visit

    This is a great site! I've learned quite a bit here in the last few months. All of the main contributing guys are really cool (never degrading).
    Honestly, I'm usually wearing gray socks though:confused:. Hope that's alright?

    Congratulations on running the #1 Long Range Hunting site on the web.;);)

    All of your hard work and investments of time and money are paying off big time.

    And I agree that we have the best bunch of guys assembled here that you could ask for. Knowledge, experience and the help available are tremendous.

    I know that during the fall hunting season this year if I was gone for a day or 2 when I came back the new post count was amazing compared to the same thing a year ago. I can't wait to see what happens in the next year.

    LRH has been my #1 site for reading, learning and occasionally posting.

    There is a continuous stream of information here from the guys who have been-there-done-that. Not just a bunch of blow-hards which can be found almost everywhere else.

    I might add, to the credit of all participants, that this is the most civil place of discussion regarding our (sometimes) controversial sport. The posters here are what makes LRH the #1 site for me.

    Len has done a great job of leading the charge. Thanks Len.
