I'm pretty sure post count is off, just as join dates are for really old members, have been reset when the board moved long ago.Man, almost reaching 30,000 posts.
In 2002 I didn't have an avatar at all. That black 1911 pistol has been my avatar for a very long time and I have no plans to change it. For a while my avatar was animated, showing a Glock pistol cycling as it fired. For a short while it was the album cover from Iron Maiden's live album "Death on the Road." Back in 2002 I wasn't a "gun nut" -- I didn't even own a gun back then.Did you ever change your avatar since 2002?
