    Have you noticed how well this site responds on the Net?

    Lately I have been using my Tablet and phone to access this site. Compared to other sites accessed similarly, this site is ALWAYS faster, accurate, complete, every feature works, and there are no hiccoughs. Ordinarily I am a PC user and expect that format to exhibit an odd irregularity or two. It is nice to come here where technology works unincumbered.
    If it was easy, anybody could do it.

    Yeah, it works very well. I'm on a couple of other sites that load slow, the screen jumps around some before it settles, newly opened pages don't open on the 1st thread. Stuff like that!

    I like it.
    I hang out here a lot, and on a few other places including Fox News.

    With Fox, you can click on a article, and go wax your car or strip and clean a AR while it jumps around,
    blinks, and reloads until it finally settles down with all the ads.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    Yep,

    I use my tablet 90% of the time. This siteloads faster then any other firearms related it that I visit.
    I HATE auto-correct

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.

    It is a race between graybeard and marlin owners for the slowest site.

    it is because of the way the site handles advertisements... its not waiting for different adds and so forth to be downloaded everytime the page refreshes. and there are no mid page advertisements and so forth... basically doesnt let advertisements rule every bit of the site...

    just remember when fund raising time comes around.

    Make sense. Since this site is funded by the members. It doesn't have to rely heavily on advertising which sucks up bandwidth and resources.

    I use a Kindle some of the time and our PC most of the time. I never experience problems here. I don't know about other sites because I don't frequent any others. All I need right here. Willy and No.1 along with the moderators keep things running like the proverbial well oiled machine!

    I think that nailed it. I had not thought of the ads, which do not have to load here.

    Everywhere else my PC uses ADBLOCKERPLUS, a freebee on the Interweb, which works well.

    This site is good, no question about it. But Ublock Origin and Privacy Badger makes other sites behave better also. I do get asked to turn off my blockers a lot, seldom do I do so. Very seldom.
