    elr-resources.com – a resource for the ELR shooting community

    I just finished doing a link check on my website, www.elr-resources.com, and decided to pitch it as a resources to the ELR shooting community, one more time.

    Background: I started the site in May 2011 when I became seriously interested in ELR shooting. The site includes (very low) thousands of links – and links only, save for minor commentary regarding what I found interesting at the annual SHOT Shows, which having and maintaining the site allows be to go to as “media”. It is maintained daily and updated formally every week. Before support the hit counter I was using went away, along with the hit counter, it had recorded 41,000+ hits to the home page – and it is not my internet home page (i.e., not where my internet browsers startup). While the site is primarily composed of US company links, more and more international companies have been added over the years. Please note that it is an entirely non-commercial site, no registration, no fuss, no muss – and no forum, and no interest in having one. I make no compensation from it – zero, zip, none.
