don’t paint all of us easterners with a broad brush, please

it’s not an undue accusation, but there are still a few of us who dabble in the black arts in the east

as @Susquatch points out it’s more a non-topic or at least a hush topic yet machining is closely tied to things that go bang....at least forum wise

we have a few highly skilled machinists who lean the right way within our ranks :D
It's hard not to use the big brush, with the propaganda machine going full tilt boogie. I agree with you, there are sensible people everywhere, and anyone who has devoted time in their life to machining, or other real world crafts that have consequences immediately for mistakes made, quickly learn to understand. I like people who have a passion for their own craft, and we all should help each other in this.

Agreed. We try to stay no politics around here, for good reason. There’s many avenues to get involved in shooting, I personally only hope people find a way to get involved, educated and find an avenue to shoot safely
