There was an old thread that chronicled how the members found their way here but it must have been lost when the servers crashed sometime ago.

So let's hear it how you guys and gals made it to Glock Talk's Band of Glockers Clubhouse?

We used to post on a single thread at GNG. It reached several hundred pages, i think, that's why the site owner thought to give us our very own clubhouse. Thus BOG was born. :)

Searched and researched on Glocks. I thought I'm running out of materials until I hit the glocktalk.com site. Curiosity overpowered me and I'm hooked ever since (after I discovered that we are Pinoys here at Band Of Glockers).

I forgot to mention that the people here are very nice and always helpful. :)

Intrigued by the constant references to GT's site(mostly bashing) at the HKPro forum when I was still enamored by HK's, coincident with this I was also looking for info on the Glock 30 which I had just ordered then. On scanning "The Club House" the misspelled word "filippino" caught my eye same with the catchy title Band of Glockers :). Decided to check this subforum out, lurked a little, liked what I saw, made a test post to check the waters for friendliness so to speak, felt the love ;f and the rest is history :)

Google.

In researching for which first gun to get, stumbled upon old posts (in Filipino). I think I was looking for contact numbers of gun shops then -- found this thread were you folks listed all the shops you know.

Like JuDGe, i'm also a member of the pinoyglockster of yahoogroups. After months of encouragement from EC, finally decide to check out becasue posting in pinoyglockers was significantly decreasing! Nandito na pala lahat ng mga GWAPINGS don!;f ;f ;f

Yet to own a BoGs shirt though....

Thanks Doc for the invite...

I was trying to Google on Glock 19 which I was planning to buy. Came across Deenoh's posts on WSC which had a sale then.

I also found out that one one the members, Glockideeglock, was my high school classmate. ;f

Di ko na maalala kung paano ko nadiskubre 'tong GlockTalk. Naalala ko lang nag-PM ako kay Prez JMY nung malaman ko'ng kapwa Pinoy. Hanggang sa dumami at nagkita sa Tia Maria Megamall at binuo yung BOG. 6 or 7 lang ang miembro ng BOGs nun.

Can't remember anymore how I discovered GT. I just recalled sending JMY a PM when I learned he's Filipino. We grew in numbers and met at Tia Maria in Megamall and formed BOG. We were 6 or 7 BOGs then.

was browsing a 1911 forum and somebody posted quite a long one in tagalog. he/she was advised to check out a forum where you can post in tagalog without being accused of speaking latin. followed the link and voila! here i am. it took me 2 weeks before i was cleared to join.

thanks a bunch! Oh yes, before that, i was having a good laugh on browsing posts re: advises to a guy who has some issues with a girlfriend about to marry when a 3rd party show up in the scene. serious advices sa una then 'sige pagbigyan at pindutin' down the thread.

now, i start and end my day browsing the BOGs.

Anyway, is BOG a 'brick and mortar' club? Not virtual on the net? How can you become a member? D'you need to be in Phil?

Vicara,

BoG members interact with each other both in cyberspace and in the physical world, whether at shooting matches or at non-formal meetings and drinking sessions ;Y

You become a member by posting and interacting in a responsible and friendly manner. Cheers :)

d'you guys have members that are non-glock owner? how about a membership application and/or dues?

Bylaws? Officers?

If it happened at 1911.org... then im guilty of showing you the way to this site. :)

It's just that 1911.org has this forum dedicated to the Armscor,Charles Daly,Rock Island & SAM 1911 that most people that post there happened to be Filipino... The more the merrier diba.

Incidentally, i learned about the BOGS when somebody posted the link to this site at 1911Forum.

Yes, a lot of BoGs are non-Glock owners. It just so happened that this is GlockTalk and many BoG members started out with a Glock pistol before trying other brands. Likewise, the TV mini-series Band of Brothers was very popular during the time that the group started out, hence the BoG moniker.

Membership dues? All I remember is that new members have to treat the old-timers to a round or three of beer... joke ;f

There were actually only 2 officers, that's jmy who is president and ppts799 as secretary. You should see them go at each other when they post here in GT. ;f

It's really an informal club, and as what mikey said just be friendly plus the 3 rounds of beer. ;f

VICARA
07-25-2005, 14:31
sige, hahanapin ko kayo pag bakasyon 'ko diyan. I guess I can live with 3 rounds of beer. Pero bakit tatlo lang? o bakan naman tatlong case?

nice to know you guys, kahit lang sa cyberscape...thank you.

Whoh finally managed to login

found GT via HS2000 talk ,CZ forum and firingline forum

was a former member of those forum/s but i liked it here more Pinoys and the advice is more reliable (first hand from Pinoys)


if you guys are having difficulty in accessing your GT coz of firewall and site blocked by servers try this

One lazy Saturday afternoon three and a half years ago,after posting all the questions I wanted to know in regards to Glock pistols,I thought to myself on what other question could I post as I had nothing else to do and I was really bored that day and I just posted a question,"Filipino GlockTalk Members".To be honest,I wasn't really to sure if I was going to get any response to that question.Little did I know that that post of mine would reach 72 pages.If my memory serves me right,Alexi was one of the first to respond.Then came Mighty Cherokee.Batangueno,Mc Oliver,Reccah,ppts,etc..After a few post,Mighty Cherokee asked all of us to post our phone numbers.What I did was jot down all their numbers and when I got to the office,I started calling each one of them to set up a meeting.Finally,we all met up at Tia Maria,Megamall.After that,we had some fun shoots and I guess you guys know what happened after that.The rest is History.

My brother, who is also a BOG, suggested to me to create an account with Glocktalk, while I was still living in the Philippines. Rarely used it at first, but now open it almost daily!

It's a nice venue to keep in touch with kabayans back home and discuss anything under the sun.:) Whether you agree with one and disagree with another, masaya pa rin.

I distinctly remember I Google searched "ELISCO M16" and ...presto! Only a few matches came out, mostly press releases, a couple of AR-15 enthusiast forums, and this one. The thread I found was "On ELISCO and Colt"
