    I like it. But I switched back to We The Armed. Change is bad.
    I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

    It looks nice, and I do like the targets and stuff on the top.  But after I realized which gun forum I was on, I promptly changed back to sullen madness.  In fact, I'm 1 out of 5 people who still have it.

    Does that make me a surly curmudgeon?  


    You're too young to be a curmudgeon. Sorry. :neener

    However, being surly seems to be quite popular with today's youth...so. OK.
    Just don't be lettin your pants droop down past your butt. :bash OK? OK. :rotfl


    (I'm also one with the Sullen Madness - but I'm going to give the new look a bit more of a chance to win me over. 'Cause I'm nice that way.)

    I used to use Sullen Madness, but this new theme is much nicer in my opinion.  T-Man, as usual, has done a fantastic job for WTA.

    When I went to Vietnam in 1966 my Church still held Mass in Latin. When I came home, it was in English, there were frequently guitars, and part of the Mass included shaking hands with perfect strangers apparently just because they were "there".

    I just spent a week going to and coming back from Arizona.

    Just one week.

    WTA is completely changed.

    I also noticed that Joplin Missouri had also completely changed.

    I have completely wrapped my head and the Jack Russell's head in foiul.

    Wrapping Mary's head though is proving to be a challenge. She is being difficult

    I like the fact that the page loads faster, the new format is definitely easier on the eyes.

    But..........  I thought something was wrong with my computer.  Been having trouble with some pages loading properly lately.

    Huh...for me, this format loads rather slower than the one I was using. 

    Could be an issue on my end though.  I'm living off of my 3G cellular modem now.

    It seems to be slower for me as well, though I'm not sure if that's because now I expect it to go fast.

     :shrug

    I like the look of it though, very snazzy.

    If you watch the status bar in the browser, you'll see that more times than not the hold up is Tactical Republic (our ad affiliate).

    I see that name a lot too.  I remember the time when WTA didn't have ads.  It was kinda nice.  At least the ads are gun related now.  Remember all of those random ones?  (Are you a hot momma) comes to mind...

    The proceeds from those ads keep the lights on, and may get us a nice server upgrade very soon.  The rest (which isn't a major amount or anything) is donated to RKBA causes.

    Nice job, T.

    My internet was screwy for a while and then I went to Montana, so it's been a while since I've been on, but I like the new look.  At first I had to do a double take, "Is this the right website?"

    Loading a lot slower now for some reason.

    Could be that 'AWESOMENESS' needs more time to load.
