UPDATE: Blog posting will resume on 29 December.
Words are cheap, especially online, and so is hard for me to convey real sincerity, but I will try.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you! I want to express my profound gratitude to you, the loyal readers of The Firearm Blog. Without your continued support, there would be no point in me blogging.
A special thanks to all the readers who sent in tips, photos, wrote articles, leaked news and commented on blog posts. You are an essential part of this blog. It would not be the same without you. I used to thank everyone individually, but now there are just to many people and I don’t want to leave anyone out.
Also thanks to GunsForSale. They lived up to their promises, both to you and I. They have given me absolute editorial freedom and not interfered in any way with what I write. Earlier this year I was threatened with legal action for publishing facts a company did not want known. Without some weight behind me I would have been forced to back down, despite having done nothing morally or legally wrong.
Last but not least: thanks to all my fellow gun bloggers for all their hard work. I know as well as anyone the effort you put into your blogs.
