Perhaps, but how many are active?  Seeing the # of posts I missed during my 'vacation from here', I'd say there's maybe 2 dozen who are active...the rest may be reading and not posting...but there's certainly not 400 active members.

I would say if people are logging in and reading, once in a blue moon replying. Maybe some day doing a lot of posting tells me they are active.
if they sign up and never log in they are not truly active.
every one has a different "active" level, they tend to fluctuate over time.
This is my opinion on the subject.

here is a thought, maybe some of us are 'GUN' shy when it comes to posting on these new fangled forum things.   ;)

I also know that my level of participation fluctuates based on home & work life and the amount of time I have available.

I love staying in touch with the folks here and learn a great deal but life goes on and I have to balance things. Besides, if it's a choice between being here or a range day the forum is outta luck!  ;D

I have a few concepts in the works to perhaps motivate some of the newer members here to participate more, and now the winter months are upon us chances are we'll see more activity now being inside is more enjoyable then being out int he cold.

Regardless I deeply enjoy the discussions with everyone currently active, and find the in depth topics of late in the political sub forum quite engaging, even if I need to (and at times enjoy) play devils advocate once in a while to keep the discussions from petering out in a chorus of agreements with the original topic.  ;D

Well, for a while now, if it doesn't have to do with the remodel work we are having done here at the house, it's probably not getting the attention it deserves from me.  Shoot, we have had to miss our regularly scheduled "stress relief" run to the range for nearly a month.  Hopefully, we can get out either Monday or Tuesday for a while.  I've got a new XDs that I really want to spend some time getting to know.
