6 Years Ago Today......

6 years ago today, I found this fledgling 7 month old forum called Kimber Talk. It had less then 15 active members and averaged about 5 new posts a week. I thought it would be a great place to hang out and see what I could do to get it going.

I for one Chuck, am glad you decided to give 'er a go. It's turned out to be both informative and interesting, not to mention entertaining.

But this place sucks if you have any intention of saving any money!

Thanks for all you do here, Chuck!

I’ve got to ditto Rick. Chuck “ enabled “ me to start buying 10 round magazines, Arland “ enabled” me to buy a 9 mm, which I’ve still not shot, Rick “ enabled me to buy another Milt Sparks holster and ........list is too long......too many enablers on this Forum.
Thanks to everyone that welcomed me to join.

I agree with all of the above! My favorite gun forum, and even as a new member I've felt welcome from the beginning...and enabled!

Am I the poster boy for Kimber?

Chuck, my Brother, first Thanks for being the great and awesome person you are. You feel like one of my best friends but we have never met in person. Last but not least Thanks for doing what you do here on KT, it would be empty and like shooting a Glock without you.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm on a lot of message boards for a lot of my interests, and have been on a lot more over the years... but this is the only one that's full of people I wouldn't mind sharing a neighborhood with.
