The blog turns two years old!

The blog has turned two years old! I can hardly believe I made it this long, it feels like I have been doing it for 20 years, not two.

Happy Bday

When the blog had it’s first birthday I posted some stats:

* 593 posts
* Most comments in a post: 176 (Ruger SR9)

The stats for it’s second birthday are:

* 1409 posts
* Most comments in a post: 611 (Ruger SR9)

I have to thank my fellow gun bloggers. Without you I probably would not have started blogging and certainty would not have lasted two years!

A big thank you to everyone who has emailed me content, photos and links to interesting things. It is always appreciated.

And thanks to everyone who has commented on the blog. Your comments make the blog significantly more useful for the community, and they encourage me to continue blogging.

I should give a special thanks to, in no particular order, Jay (jdun1911), Daniel E. Watters, Heath, Sven, Matt Groom, REMOV, Mehul Kamdar and Wendell who have each given me a lot of help and content for the blog over the years.

    Happy Birthday! Keep up the great work, Steve.

  • Congratulations, Steve! And here’s to many, many more birthdays in the future. We need you to give us our daily gun information fix – addictive but not harmful at all and actually good for both the mind and the body!

    And, there’s no need to thank me. I haven’t done much – if anything. I have gained so much valuable information from here that I have to keep coming.

    Good shooting, friend!
