Another reason to join NSC...SSAA takes a swipe

Post by TassieTiger » 28 Jul 2020, 1:05 pm

Makes for an interesting read - no doubt it’s slightly out of balance due to personal agenda, but still - an opportunity has gone walking here...

Your link is broken ... however, I found it.
https://nationalshooting.org.au/blog/f/ ... -gun-shops


I pay my SSAA membership in the hope they'd support the industry as a whole, even if it means standing alongside another group. Other than that I get NOTHING out of the SSAA.

I think the SSAA owes its members a serious explanation.

No doubt highly "out of balance due to personal agenda", as it appears that the page has now been pulled.

The only reason that I belong to the SSAA is that it means I get to keep my licence and it gives me somewhere to shoot.

SSAA is a business that sells insurance and operates ranges, it has no interest in shooters and has only one strategy of sucking up to government to keep its fat profits coming in.
When the last 22 rimfire single load rifles are about to be taken away SSAA will bring its full force into the fight to support shooters, until then they won't be wasting any of that money that's filling their bank accounts.

I’m a member - how is it old news...I only found it by mistake.?
If you saw it “older times ago” why not post it up ? Or you’d rather wait for someone else to post it, so you can then post and say “old news”? I Don’t get it.

Got it in an email a while back.

I don't post everything I read mate.

I assume your getting regular emails from them?

Oldbloke from now on you need to provide a list of all emails you receive on a daily basis just in case someone may find something interesting. :lol:

If you're a member, a donator, or on their (free) mailing list you get regular emails from them, TassieTiger maybe you need to check your junk mail box .This particular issue & emails relating to it has been going on for several months. :thumbsup:

Had a look. I joined shortly after that blog/announcement. So it was a freebie email. I have definitely read that info.

Perhaps check junk or spam box as JSS suggested or maybe you just didn't hit that particular link.

Yes, JSS, I promise, x my heart and hope to die if I forget to report everything. :D

Sarcasm doesn’t become you...Or as my ole dear Nan used to say, sarcasm is The wit of the fool lol.
A while ago, in a different thread, in a galaxy far fAr awAy - several members, including OB, posted up about relevancy when replying - in fact, blackened started removing a heap of replies just like the one above...where the reply Is antagonist and contributes nothing...

The fact the heading implies - the thread was for non members and encouraging others to join appears to be lost...non members don’t get the emails...

Regardless - I get approx 250 emails a day, it’s pretty easy to over look one...rest assured, I won’t post up another news worthy item I come across, just in case someone else, somewhere - has read it :silent:

Just to correct you. Non members can get the emails. You just need to subscribe. That's why it was old news to me.

And the sarcasm as you put it was intended as dry humor directed at JSSs comment, not you TT. But never mind. Read my signature.

Your completely missing the point...
How would those ppl / who are NOT receiving the emails (members or otherwise) become aware of what the NSC is doing if ppl don’t post it up? Because you read first - got the info a few weeks prior, does that make you better ? That’s what I don’t understand - why you would post “this is old news”...without adding anything constructive?

No i think you're missing the point. Take off your skirt and stop being such a sensitive little princess. OB made a nothing comment about it being old news and you got all upset about it. So i made a bit of a joke and again you got all upset and feel the need to call me a fool. Unplug for a while and have a beer or three if you're taking this place so seriously and a simple comment like that can upset you so much.
Anyway i'm tapping out as i can't be bothered arguing about nothing with someone who feels the need to make it into something. Enjoy that beer mate.

Sensitive princess lol. Original. Who is upset ? Don’t read emotion into text, ya will give ya self a hernia.
But to maybe explain, you made it into something - by adding on to OB’s post that he should post up every email he reads now,...that was nothing but a dig I get that and good on ya, and now I’ve fired one back at you - highlighting that the topic was for those that didn’t get the info, you now want to take your bat and ball and go home and cry in ya beer lolz...as that little ewok dude says - hypocrisy deep run this one.

TT. It was fairly old news. It was a simple statement of fact. But, true other members could well be interested.

Your getting fired up about SFA.

But to keep the peace I have deleted my original post.

Happy now?

Hahaha...your hilarious JSS - you were tapping out and couldn’t be bothered ? And then you again, hypocritically say - “see I can’t help MYSELF?” Lolz. How do I do a yoda voice in text - “irony and hypocrisy same bed share” :violin:

OB - I could careless. I really could. I’m just wondering why you’d bother posting it was old news...clearly, several other members had posted before you and made positive comment. I’m trying to understand why you’d say it nothing more, nothing less - but hey, the answer eludes because of the what ever clause.

Hopefully the thread bought some attention to the cause lol.

TT, you need to take a chill pill.

Just a friendly tip. Get control of your 240 daily email.
