An Ohio 7th grade student was suspended from school for 10 days because he clicked a "like" button on a post about a friend's airsoft gun picture. The school administrators unwilling to admit how inane that is cited their perspective than in such matters it's better to play it safe than have regrets later by not taking action. Really? These are the folks charged with educating our young people? What else are they too closed minded to spend a little time looking into before they react?
Yikes! I guess it should serve as a good reminder to our community that sensitivities run irrationally high in the minds of many people with regard to any gun related subject.

The rule at my school is that action will be taken due to something online if a student's well-being in a school environment is affected. If this school has a similar rule, they unquestionably overstepped their authority and I would hope most (if not all) other school administration is more reasonable. Still, take care with gun-related posts on social media, and also with WWII German-related posts (especially SS ones.) A photo of you as a "Nazi" can have lasting repercussions.

I heard on the news. That is totally ridiculous. Unfortunately I think it has a lot to do with our society now a days, the knee-jerk reaction to anything gun related. When I was in middle school, I got yelled at multiple times by teachers when discussing ANYTHING battle related with my buddies. It didn't even have to do with guns specifically. Although I don't like to use this term, they were the prime example of "sheeple".

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
