I stopped going on that site because the forum software didn't work for me. Specifically the "go to first unread post". I got tired of trying to figure out where I left off in each thread I was participating / following.

I've been a member there over 10 years and I think I understand it well enough. I've got plenty of HK's best handguns and love all of them. I don't need a bunch Kool-Aid drinkers looking down on practically everything else on the market.

I like GT because of its diversity. HK Pro's diversity is basically non-existent. You pretty much either discuss Heckler & Koch products or hit the road. To me, the forum has a very elitist attitude about it. I'll spend my time elsewhere.

The guys wouldn't like me spending much time on there anyway, trust me.

Sadly many forums, that could be great, are just like that. Too many DB Mods that are on some power trip. I like GT because even though Eric runs a fairly tight ship he realizes we are all human and **** up once in awhile.

they are comic relief and seeing how the other half lives lets us appreciate our hk's and single malt more. you must try this Glenlivet Archive 21year old, good sir. i'll have my man servant dispatch some via courier.

Funny, that kinda goes along with HK's attitude a little bit..... HK's are great, but there are plenty of other brands that are great to.
