I made two donations with pay pal one of them was around 2/25/07 and the other was about a year ago.I hope it was recieved by the proper channels and not sitting in limbo someplace as maybe it never made it to the e-mail address of the site.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. We received a donation from you (STW1648) on 2/25/2007, also one on 6/11/2006.
I try to acknowledge all the donations by individual email within 2-3 weeks. I think I missed the one dated 6/11/2006 because right about that time I was moving and I didn't have email for about 10 days.
Anyway, let me thank you for BOTH your donations. We're working on some major upgrades, including a daily bulletin and a redesigned Forum section that will provide a nice, wide window AND Navigation. I've had to bring in some hired help for these items and they don't work cheap.

Thanks much for the additional donation. Reader support really helps and is essential to the site.
People may not know, but it takes a lot of time to run this site and no one's pulling down a paycheck. We've recently added a daily bulletin feature--that alone is 15 hours per week. Add another 10-12 hours per week to answer email and monitor the board. Doing a Gun of the Week article is 20-30 man-hours start to finish typically. Producing a new Cartridge Guide can require 100 man-hours.
What would be great is if a significant percentage of our readers (numbering in the tens of thousands) could contribute a modest sum every year. That would make a huge difference. With a solid base of reader contributions I could dedicate all my time to creating new content and then everyone would benefit.

JB, as a fellow firearms enthusiast and retailer, I would highly reccomend setting up a Gearpay account. I use it all the time for my windflag business and am very happy with it. It may draw a few more donations from the members since alot of them may be anti PayPal. I too am going to support the 6mmbr site. Keep up the good work.
