New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know. Please only send real issues not things like I hate the colors of the site or the site looks cheap now. I am trying to get as many issues fixed for you as i can and If i have to read through stuff like that it's going to take me longer to get stuff fixed.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

            What, no Nagant revolver?
            I just added it not for its combat value ( near zero) but because I own one and its a blast to shoot.

              The Colt 1911 was such a great pistol it was the prime sidearm of the US military until the 1990's. A timeless design.

                I have several of these; here would be my top five, admittedly "fun to shoot" is part of my criteria:

                Colt M1911. Hands-down the winner for reasons oft discussed.

                Webley Mk. VI - solid, good stopping power, fast to unload.

                Mauser Broomhandle - ten-round capacity. I don't think the shoulder stock helps that much but others might disagree. A red nine is probably better than the .30 cal. model, but either are outstanding as long as you keep up with the pieces when field stripping.

                Smith & Wesson 1917 (in .45 ACP) - classic design, a lot like the Webley to shoot.

                [tie] Steyr - 8-round capacity, good overall pistol, not well balanced; French Mod. 1892, good small-caliber revolver.

                In a trench fight, I would prefer any of the above to an 1895 Nagant, a 1910 Glisenti, or anything Belgium was using (the Belgian stuff was very well made but the calibers were too small for my comfort). I've seen but do not own a Gasser, which looks like a beast.

                Why not the Luger? It was a great-looking pistol that got by on its looks. It's angled grip made it a bit finicky, it's kick is moderately stout, and I could see how it would have fouling problems. Also, I don't like a pistol that can still shoot once after its receiver is detached from the grip and trigger; it's like a decapitated snake that can still bite.

                  It is specifically a Revolver but also a pistol.
