How about a garage sale of sorts? I have a few firearm related items laying around here that I could donate and I'm sure others have similar stuff.

The items could be posted in the Private Party Ads and then someone could make a donation to the site for the amount that the donator would set. I would think that we are all ethical grownups here and could make this flow nicely but if there are a couple toads then it may have to be monitored.

Things that could be donated:
Empty brass
Factory loaded ammo from that gun that you sold and will not need for the new model.
Accessories like holsters, mag pouches, belts, magazines, etc.

Since most of us live in close proximity to each other, shipping may not be necessary. If we did have to ship, then something would have to be arranged between the parties involved.

It strikes me that it would be a good idea to sticky the donation link somewhere easy to find, like the Site Announcements page.
S&W M&P9
S&W M&P9c
pistol-training.com
The M&P Endurance Gun
Dr. Gary K. Roberts' list of recommended SD ammo

Carry guns are like work trucks: who cares if they get beat up a little as long as they work when you need them to.

Thomas,

Would there be a way to implement a phpBB module that tracks funds via PayPal? I looked around a bit and found a few, but the publisher's site was down. I am thinking by posting this here, we can get a few more people on the hunt.

If so that would be great! I don't really like the looks of the Thermometer versions, but whatever, something is better than having Thomas have to keep posting updates every day. And if it were at the top of the site (in the blue space or somewhere nearby) and had a link to donate, we might see more and faster fund generation.

Thanks!

:agree: That would help keep it active. A few days of inactivity and it could become lost in the older posts.

Not sure if you are still looking for information or suggestions, but I voted for the "yearly donation." I would like to point out the possibility of maybe how XDTalk.com does it. Basic (Free) membership and then a few other types of memberships and sponsors. If I can ever get to a NRA training and then get certificated to start teaching Utah CFP and private instruction (been wanting to do it for over a year, hopefully will get it done next month) I would pay for a "business sponsorship" to help promote my shooting classes and myself. Could offer it to like Dougs, Rangemasters, etc. to help them promote their businesses. Just my 1 cent.
