Where have I been? Japan, San Diego, and some time in my backyard digging ditches (for reasons to be left undiscussed.)

Is there a "State of WAGUNS" somewhere folks can read?

I mostly frequent automotive forums and I've seen a lot of those get bought and "privatized" and now they are rampant with advertising.

So, I'm just curious how WAGUNS is doing financially and how donations help. Or do Dan & Steve suck up some cost to keep this awesome place going? I know it's not cheap.

I do come here occasionally and share some love ($$$) to keeps things alive and well.

WaGuns is doing awesome. Financially to us isn't an issue. This site isn't expensive to run and maintain and all the donations go back to the members in the way of PIF's, events, etc. None of the Admins or Moderators are paid for their positions here, it is a labor of love. We have had some offers to sell to the big boys, but we are just not interested at this time.

Dan did buy a house. In cash from PayPal. Just sayin...

I think it is great that 100% of donations are given back to members. While we have some sponsors, all funds go back to us! Who else can say that?

Yeah, I'm proud of that too.

All of the donations and advertiser money go into the pot, and out of that we pay:

- Any site fees, like hosting charges
- PIFs to members
- Expenses like the signs that we put up when we do cleanups at the pits
- The occasional swag donation to huge celebrities like The Yankee Marshal, robot, and Tombrewster421.

Saw a fellow Wagunner at the range today. Put in a donation because every bit helps.

Waguns is something I really enjoy about Washington. As Waguns goes so does what we love about this state. Remember that guys and gals.

Thank you. It has been a while since I have seen you. I hope we didn’t cramp that end of the range. One of our finest is heading to a class and hasn’t shot a rifle in three years.
