keep in mind, anything over $400 is a felony, do not go to the police, go and report it to your Sheriff dept.. it's amazing how fast things are settled when the Sheriff dispatch a Deputy to pay a personal visit to the perb at their house.

Bongo,
  You have a good point. I once had to contact a Sheriff department in MN. I bought a bow, and the guy cashed the money order. He left his wife, and the bow behind. The department knew this guy and his wife. ;o) I got my bow after numerous phone calls, excuses, and a visit from the Sheriff. I am still very grateful to the department for all of their efforts, and help.

What on earth makes a riser worth $3500? Gold inlay? Diamond arrow plate?

Bear only made a few hundred A-1 risers back around 1970.  Then you find one that Fred personally signed and it's like new...  :knothead:

I'm now hearing I might get sued....and even punched in the face....

Also found out a guy that got banned once before for breaking the rules wrote me and Rob D a nice LONG note wanting back on and apologizing and we let him back on ....now showing his true colors by joining in on the grade school antics of those are bashing us for looking out for our membership.

Its really sad to see the types of writings, from our so called 'ranks' that I'm seeing from grown men.....who only know how to name call and make physical internet threats.  I mean really, all this name calling???  Name calling is the lowest form of intellect.

Anyhow, we are just trying to look out for our members that actually get what TradGang is about the best we can.

Hey....if they are bashing me, they are just giving someone else a break.      :campfire:

Terry I appreciate all the hard work that goes into this site by you and the other Moderators.

I think Scumbags have a hard time accepting they are scumbags so they turn around and exhibit more scumbag behavior like name calling.  

I can only imagine half the crap you put up with that never gets let out (which shows Character), is the same crap management has to deal with while working in corporations.

Its the petty rumors and gossipers that really bring hardship on themselves and the whole.  I think This site is far better than the others I have been on.  Its a place where everyone can enjoy, discuss, show and tell, learn and relax while not worrying about being treated with respect and dignity.

Thank you again
Relax,

Terry, I too appreciate the first class forum you maintain for us. Part of what got me into traditional archery was when an old friend took me to the Berrian Springs Compton's event & I met with so many good first class people. I then quickly learned about tradgang & saw this is where these good people hang out at & I joined the forum. I'm glad to read you are keeping the riff raff out !

Thanks again,
Dan

Terry:

I also have the utmost appreciation for all that you have done and continue to do, in order that we have such a great site to visit.  Without you and the TG Staff's ever diligent efforts, we would not have the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of your labors.  If there is anything any of us can do to help you in these efforts please let us know.

It is unfortunate there are some out there that want to create problems, no matter where you are.  Keep up the great work.  Thanks again.
