As anyone who has spent any time at all here at ASR knows, we don't have an 'off topic' section as such sections have not had a lot of success here at ASR in the past. In fact, I was one of moderators that shut down the off topic section around a decade ago (crap-- has it really been that long already?). Since then, our moderators have fairly aggressively shut down any thread with the faintest hint of subject matter not directly pertaining to airsoft.
I talked it over with the current crew of moderators and we thought we'd try something new this holiday season to see how it was handled by you folks: an Open Discussion Thread. In this thread all the normal 'mind your manners and don't break any laws' rules apply but you're free to discuss whatever topics come to mind--- you are not limited to just airsoft (of course-- airsoft discussions should be conducted in their appropriate sections) . Open discussion is limited to THIS thread only, don't let this discussion bleed over into other threads.
So welcome to the one outlet for Off Topic discussion here at ASR.
Range hot. Weapons free.
Merry Christmas, Joyful Solstice or Happy Holiday of your choice.
Enjoy this gift responsibly.
