Anyone here part of www.pafoa.org (http://www.pafoa.org)? (PENNSYLVANIA FIREARMS OWNER ASSOCIATION)

I'm a member, but don't check in too often. Mostly because GT eats all my free time!

I know Dan, the administrator over there- he's a good guy. He's also featured on the page after me in Armed America.

I am a member of that forum but no longer frequent it. There seems to be a strong anti law-enforcement sentiment.

I'm a member there as well and joined maybe a few months after Dan posted the opening of that site.

GT shut me down about last Dec to where i couldn't get email notifications(almost 6 months) of thread updates. I guess there were some changes and some of us were left behind :). I just jump over here occasionally.

tpr. Although some members there clearly don't like LEO, I don't see a lot of anti LEO posts aside from a few bad experiences people have. I"m not LEO so maybe that's why I don't notice as readily as someone in the business.

Do you guys have the same screen names? (aside from Steve)

I'm glockmamn22 over at pafoa..

I see you posted on Chaz' thread, eh? :)

I steered clear of that one.

I'm 27hand over there.

I would expect quite a few more GT/Pafoa members but it seems many Pa people choose to only post over there.

Yes it does but there are some interesting threads on that site.

I try to stay away from arguing politics, religion, OC/CC, 9mm/.45, and XD/Glock.

Other than that I, have noticed some threads down on LEO.
I can't figure that one out. It seems to me that someone in law enforcement posts on these forums is interested enough to either give good information or just wants to BS with everyone about what the site is intended to BS about.

JMHO, DG

That turned me off to the site also. Bad mouthing people who are out trying to protect me and my family gives me a bad taste. I don't need the aggravation.

I'm a member there as well,,I check in almost daily but don't post much there,,I understand what most are trying to do there but I guess I'm just on a differant page when understanding some of there view points..
I'm on alot of other forums ,,mostly one I moderate on which I won't mention cause I'm new here and don't know those rules..

I've been a member here for awhile but I guess they had a block on a bunch of IP address's,,one being mine,,got a email last week about my password here and my ip wasn't blocked anymore,,,so here I am.

I know alot of people that have there IP blocked here when they did nothing.

Same everywhere.

PAFOA is a great forum. One of the most RKBA-beneficial things about it is it serves as a way for people who have been harassed by LE for OC or whatever to get immediate support.

It's not anti-LEO. It's anti-harassment-by-LEO.

Big difference.

PAFOA is NOT anti-LE, it is very pro-OC which has led to a number of confrontations as attempts are made to educate and inform the public as well as the police. If you check out the open/concealed carry area you will find several threads dealing with positive encounters with LE.

The only OC , CC wars are the one's where people don't understand that some of us really live in the boonies,like myself
I don't even have mail service,we don't even have a gas pump,plus the fact .it's legal and my right. I don't have a problem until someone starts on me . See-ya .

I am a member of PAFOA. I don't post as often as I used to. It seems to me there are a core group of guys who try and control and steer all discussions towards their particularly held view. If you post a contrary opinion or dare to postulate any thing anti-open carry you are immediately trounced until you yell uncle in submission or just go away.

That seems to happen with all forums. They are great for a while then a certain clan takes over any alternate opinions are silenced or muffled.In my opinion, that is what lead to the demise of Packing.org and other once great forums. Nature of the beast I guess. That is what will eventually strangle PAFOA into oblivion. You just have to wait for the next great free speech forum to come along. Of course after Jan 20 that maybe a little harder.

Amen to that! Know the Law before you hassle me. I have lots of police friends but they know my rights....some don't and let it go to their heads. I'm a friend...not a foe. I like it there, Mike.

Maybe there were too many people posting on the "members leaving Pafoa" thread and Dan is letting everyone get a taste of what the loss of the site would be like. :)

The site is nothing like it used to be.

Perhaps change is good for many but I don't care for it much these days. I stopped my paid subscription, removed my sig line and avatar

Bans for posting off topic? If you went back 3 years and did that, there would only be a hand full of posters left.

I lurk and read more but post almost nothing.

One of PAFOA's core servers went down for as-of-yet unknown reasons and will most likely require physical access to fix. We do not currently know how long this will take.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience and we will be back up as soon as possible.
