I've started this thread to serve as a forum to propose and slect a name and description for the California forum.

I'd appreciate it if we could limit response in this thread to those that signed up for the fourm.

My first idea was to name the forum California Raiders. This name to honor the various Raider organizations formed during WWII that operated behind enemy lines (not the football team).


For a description... "A Forum to discuss and ask questions about the unique Laws and RKBA issues of the Golden State. A place for California GT'ers to trade info on the best places to shoot, meet, eat, and enjoy life in spite of them."


Discuss, Suggest, Come up with somthing totall different.....

A good start. I was thinking we might want something about it also being a place where non-Californians can learn the truth about life as a shooter in the Golden State. Too many myths out there.

when you say CA Raiders, first impression is the Oakland Raiders, not the WWII people.

When you come up with a few suggestions, I can start a poll for you all if you like. Just let me know. :)

You're probably right. We could go really basic with something like "California Glockers." Or get some alliteration going with something like "Golden State Glockers."

Just throwing it out there...

I would avoid the use of Raiders, 49ers, etc.

How about the California Shakers?

Or, Golden State Shakers?

The thought occurred to me too but I liked the symbology enough to suggest it.

Actually my first though was California Viva La Resistance! but I found the french connection more objectional than the Oakland one.

California Glockers and Golden State Glockers also occured to me. Certianly there's nothing objectional about either but I figured we could come up with somthing more snazzy.

You want snazzy?


What are we packing? Heat!

What state is this all about? California!

What better name for a GT club name than


CALIFORNIA HEAT

How bout something simple, like just 'California Glockers'. I'm sure there are a lot of people who don't even know what state is the 'Golden state' (including myself, and I'm living here!) The name doesn't need to be all snazzy, just the discussion.

I like California Heat except it sounds like a basketball team to me. I would vote for Golden State Glockers because it does say who we are. Most people seeing the name could figure out what we are about and stay away unless they have something to contribute. I already know most of the bad things about California so don't need outsiders reminding me. I am conservative enough to want to not shorten California in any title. I think it is demeaning to our state.

I got no response on shooting on Thursdays or Mustang Range. Anyone interested?

I just read, again, the post above mine above. I like California Glockers for the same reasons listed above.

Couldn't agree more.

It would be great if we could reduce that and put it in the description, something like "Don't gripe about our state, that's our job." ;)

(edited because the GT filter doesn't like the 'b' word)

You can call it "California ___"
You can call it "Kalifornia ___"
You can call it "PRK ___"

But you doesn't have to call it "Golden State ___". Them are the GS Warriors basketball dudes from Oakland. ;L

nick1911
05-18-2004, 17:30
Where do you think the Warriors got "Golden State" from?

So far I think the GSG is the best. Anyone who doesn't know that California is "The Golden State" (especially someone who lives here) could certainly benefit from a little education, which we could easily provide in the brand spanking new forum. :)

gudel
05-18-2004, 17:36
everyone that lives here should know the "golden state". it says that on the license plate! ;)

I concur. While I ultimately don't care what we end up calling ourselves (as the Bard said, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"), I'd like to think that we don't pass over a name because it's too meaning may be arcane to some. I realize I'm coming dangerously close to mixing metaphors (or perhaps that line is already behind me) but I think that if we do anything, we should be raising the bar, not appealing to the lowest common denominator.

I like this one. But it should be more like "Kalifornia Dreamin'" - as in "I'm dreamin' of an AR-15!" ;g

Yeah. "Golden State Glockers"

Descriptor: "Better than you, and we know it!...and you do too, that's why all the crap-slinging." Too long??

Oh...and this is happening so quickly, time to throw this on the table: "WULFENITE for Moderator!"

"Don't mention it, Wulfenite"

Some day, and that day may never come, I may call upon you to do a service for me...

Quick update,

Patricia and I traded a few PM's and here's what's going to happen. She's going to open the forum with a temporary, generic "California GT'ers" name and will open a poll with suggestions for a permanent name. Then we can either choose something more snazzy or just move on to bigger and better things.

Be keeping an eye out for the new forum. It should be here just as soon as Patricia finishes shipping all the left handed IWB holsters for obscure, WWII era, Japanese revolvers. ;)

I've been told there will be no fluff in this forum.

I knew I shouldn't have gotten you started over there.;f

Patricia

I set up the new club, and started the poll. It's just for the title right now. I figure we can work on a description after the title is decided. :)
