    Please, please, please, use your real name.

    That lets readers know you are shooting and how you did.

    have the guts to do so.

    Some folks still like to have their own privacy. And probably more so as not to invite the thieves to come and steal what you have. And the firearms related to the shooting sports that are being shared on this site.

    Jerry,
    I have read your posts over the years asking for people to use their real names on these forums, and, while I understand your desire to know who is posting and connect them with a match list, there is a reason why many don't: it was how we were taught in school when learning about the internet.
    Never use your real name, don't give out your credit card information, don't click on any links from people you don't know, don't take candy from strangers or hop into unmarked panel vans with a guy who asks what clothing size you wear (it puts the lotion in the basket).
    When connected with my business/profession I will use my real name, but this is my hobby/sport and I want to keep it separate.
    I don't want my name easily searchable by my clients - not that I am ashamed one bit about my hobby, I just want to keep it separate from my professional life. By using my real name as my forum name any post I make becomes easily searchable by anyone. I realize that those that want to find me and my information will do so I just don't want to make that easy for them.

    If that makes anyone less "gutsy" as you imply, then I might ask you to try to understand a different perspective.

    Mike

    did not grow up in a world of computers. There were no computers in my world until the Commodore we go to rate Auto insurance in the middle or late 80's so there are two worlds of people here, mebby more. Not to disagree with what you have said but there is another side to this.

    Very well said and everyone does have an individual right to their own privacy.
