    I think we should have a general amnesty for all previously banned forum members. And we should have O'Bama apologize to them.

    One of the funniest posts I've ever read on this site. The funniest part is the cumulative post count of the folks with negative opinions of the new owners. Hope Philip factored that into the sale price.

    (The 2nd funniest part was the comment about the queef sisters.)
    Heh!!

    I don't know anything about Vertical Scope. Never heard anything about them until I read this post. I will not make any judgments on the new owners until I see if anything changes to the negative.

    Recently, the Canadian media company Vertical Scope has been buying up gun-related forums, including several high-profile ones. The list of forums they've purchased include:

    ACR Forum
    Defensive Carry
    National Gun Forum
    The AK Forum
    Sniper Forums
    Marlin Owners Forum
    Handguns and Ammunition Forums
    6.8 Forums
    XD Talk
    Walther Forums
    Prepper Forums
    New Jersey Hunter
    Trap Shooters
    Taurus Armed
    Colt Forum
    FN Forum
    Florida Concealed Carry Forum
    M&P Forum
    M-14 Forum
    H&K Pro
    Gun Hub
    Kimber Talk
    Bersa Pistol Forum
    Kahr Forum
    Shotgun Forums
    Gun Forums
    Glock Pro
    Glock Forum
    1911 Talk
    Utah Concealed Carry
    Oklahoma Hunter
    Ruger Pistol Forums
    Predator Talk

    And likely others.

    Most recently, they have also purchased Gunboards, my second favorite online forum, and the premier military surplus forum on the web.

    The unsettling part is that Vertical Scope's majority owner is Torstar Corporation. That's the "Toronto Star", a notoriously left-leaning and anti-gun Canadian newspaper. (Known derisively as the "Toronto Red Star" for its Socialist slant.) http://www.torstar.com/html/wh...iew=article&wnID=169

    Online forums are a dying format, like photographic film and cassette tapes.
    Even if VS were to shut this place down another URL and forum could be made in 30 minutes.

    There are plenty of sites to sell guns. There are hardly any new sales posted here anymore.

    Yes there are other sites, but it's way easier to sell a pistol with FUAC 10 round mags here than it is on other sites.

    It's sad to see that money comes before personal beliefs and personal freedom. Selling to an anti-gun media company is the ultimate betrayal, IMO.

    The love of money is the root of all evil.

    You may have noticed the downtime recently. We have moved to a new home. NYFirearms.com is now part of the family of firearms forums owned and run by OutdoorWS a subsidiary owned and operated by VerticalScope . This is a great thing for NYF members. The OutdoorWS team will be managing the operational and technical aspects of NYFirearms, however, I will remain on as an administrator.


    This is great news for NYFirearms as I will be able to participate much more in the content of the website, rather than just fixing all the back end issues and paying the bills. It has been a fun 8 years of owning and running the website.


    A SPECIAL thanks goes out to my team of admins and moderators, especially Jeff, Tim, and JT, who really have helped out throughout the years and explosive growth of NYFirearms.com.


    The best part is that this does not affect you at all. All of the moderators, admins, and members just continue to function as normal, and hopefully VerticalScope will help us fix any future issues that may arise with the website!


    It has been an absolutely pleasure building and growing this website and community for you all to enjoy. I am happy to continue to be a part of the site and see it grow well into the future!


    Thank you all again for being part of this wonderful community!!


    Regards,
    Mike Centola

    Shame you sold out. This site used to rock. Now it sucks the big one.
