    Hello, welcome to the forum,
    In general it's a pretty great community.
    There are lots of very knowledgeable people willing to answer questions and help people out. You just have to ask.

    Welcome to the forum!

    There are a few weirdos here that have an obsession with potatoes, feel free to ignore them.
    If you truly want to understand the present, or your self, you must begin in the past.
    History is not simply a study of the past, it's an explanation of the present.

    A mostly peaceful group of gun owners with a range of disorders, those disorders in no particular order of severity include: potato on (in) Speedo crime, AI obsession, unfunny jokes, rambling diatribes, 3 day wars, why did that pepper burn my butt, I bet I can get my reloading cost per round down to free and of course the pariahs who vote a certain way because things will be different this time...maybe. On a positive note we've moved past the best gun for bear defense quagmire. YMMV.

    Good day and welcome to the Gun Owners of Canad forums.

    Esteemed member Camo tung lays it out pretty well:

    But Camo also forgot a few of us have an obsession with questioning other's political and social obsessions... and somehow at GOC it still remains civil no matter how much we disagree: you don't find that very often on the Internet any more.

    Anyone who screams 'FREEDOM' but does not give it, especially freedom from something someone else has freedom of, they are the true traitors to all freedom: they don't want freedom, they want privilege, they want to abuse, they want to violate... and they want to do it with impunity.

    Welcome!

    You'll notice people's join dates give them pretty good insights related to historical gun related events and our post histories are pretty interesting to delve into, especially if you're newer into guns/shooting...

    A lot of us who've been in the sport for 10+ years are a bit... rattled... by what's been going on, but I'd be willing to say we're also the most enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate about the sport and community - despite the present state of things.
