End of July 2008 Report
First and foremost: I want to thank ever VIP / Premium member. It is through your continued support that this site stays not only open, but also banner free.

-----> Important <-----
Some members that mailed in payments for their VIP membership were put into one billing system. A few months ago we moved over to another system. Subscription renewals were lost in the migration. If you mailed in a payment and if get a reminder email that your subscription is about to expire, and you know that your membership should have been longer - Contact me and we will get the matter resolved.
Example: January of 2008 someone mailed in a one year membership, and get a reminder email in September that your subscription will expire soon. Its no big deal, contact me and we will get it fixed. Once we get over this little hump, everything is going to be ok.

Forum redesign - Some forum sections have been merged. All of the post and threads are still here. Some sections were not getting enough traffic to justify having them. A couple of the sections have been open for a few months and had 10 post. The pistol section has been open for well over a year and only had 300 some odd threads.
The total number of threads per page has been increased from 20 to 30.
Merchants account has been opened: If you have an online store or a store front, contact me about a merchant account. Resellers can have their own forum in the commercial section, which has been moved to the middle of the main forum home page.
I just want to say "Thank You" to all of the members for being part of this community.
