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.

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.

I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!
