I figured I would officially join Sigforums in case I wanted to post a question, etc for expert insight on Sigs. Now pending 24 hrs into the approval process. What gives? Is that normal? No mods present? :crying:

This is my favorite forum bar none. Just curious as to why the delays.

the All-Mighty Parabellum has to do an extensive backround check on all prospective SigFourm members.......

Surely you are joking right! Close to 24 hrs....still patiently waiting.....

Oh well. I know we have lots of GT members that hit that one too. I will just be patient.

Para is good people but there's so many folks that have been baned that simply just get another email account & open another account in another name..
He used to moderate the S&W as well & has alot of time & money tied up in his forums..
You'll like the SIGFORUM, It's the #1 place to find out what you wanna know as far as SIGs are concerned..

Well....still no access...LOL. No worries, but I will say, this is the longest I have ever had to wait for access to a forum.

Did go to the range last night and ran my first Sig (a 2022) through some COF's and had a blast. My bud ran his P226 beside it, so we had fun.

It took about a month for them to authorize my access.

HOLY SMOKES!!!!!!!!!!! :wow:

I guess the DNA lab was backed up or something!

Hmmm....well at this point and speed, I will likely have another Sig in the herd when/if I do gain access, which will work out well.

I never got an email when they authorized mine. I just tried one day and it worked. Mine was about 7 days.

Hey Bama!

I am a member at Heritage Range in Argo AL. I shoot some IDPA at Steel City when I can and also at the hunting club on occassion.

How about you?

My gf's dad is a member at Steel City, so I go down there with him when we get a chance also took the Vickers class there earlier this year; that place is nice. When we're in the Ham, we usually just go down to ATI to shoot a few boxes. We're about to move to Hoover, so I will probably join at Steel City in the coming months. If you're ever in B'ham and want someone to shoot with, send me a P.M.; I'm always interested in meeting fellow enthusiast.

Good luck with the Sig Forum registration.

When you get to the Ham, PM me bro. I will be glad to show you my range too......a lot cheaper and less crowded. Not as "pretty" but just as functional. Great pistol range. Only draw back is we only have a 100yd rifle range. USPSA club housed there as well (we have 5+ pistol bays).

ATI is nice and they run IDPA style tourney's on Monday nights I believe. Me and my shooting buds do the same thing at our range when we go. Usually we have 3 or so shooters, so it makes range time fun and your ammo goes a long ways.

Sigform can be very informational. My only issue is that ALL handgun discussion is mixed in with the Sig Pistol area.

In some ways, it could be considered a benefit in that you may be intrigued in reading threads on other makes, models, and platforms besides Sig.

The site owner is a very strong Glock advocate, and in countless polls, the number one carry preference is the G19.

Then, like this site, have a separate forum for Sig's, and for other pistols.

bcThough this topic has been discussed ad nauseum over there, you could certainly raise the issue again with the site owner. :)

I know it has, and I have sent my feelings to the site's owner. It's his site, he can do as he pleases.

My protest comes in the form of not being a regular poster there.

I forget, but it took at least 3 to 4 weeks for me to get approved. No notification. I found I was able to log in one day. They use antiquated software, so the process can be very slow.

Seriously, that is the norm waiting time for the Sigforum. It is worth the wait, and they are also just testing your patience.

Parabellum the Sig forum owner is a pompous jerk. Bans people who do not agree with this megalomaniac.

I tried to join, but got a notice that my email address was banned. Had never been to the site.

Asked for clarification three times, but no response, so I have taken my electrons elsewhere.

This is correct. They don't have quite the shennanigans and/or school yard bully routine that some forums do. With that being said GT is pretty decent about keeping the riffraff away as well.

The guy that runs Sig forum is a jerk. He just can't tolerate anyone who disagrees with his opinions. "The administrator is the school yard bully. Wonder how he made out with his DUI. Just goggle his handle and you will see my point."

As far as a forum is concerned it a great place for information on Sig pistols. A lot of very knowledgle people there. Great picture posts in the gallary section of pistols and AR15 of members. Some people I know just lurk and dont post.

I like it pretty well over there. The lack of a separate forum for every manufacturer makes it a little less cluttered I think. On here I read browse through the current topics and stuff but couldn't tell you what half the sub forums are. As far as email addresses go your best bet is to use whichever email address your Internet provider set you up with through their service, even if you don't use it for anything else. Once you get signed up and approved you can easil change it.
