    Forum Rules

    By using this forum, you agree to be bound by the conditions and rules herein.

    Disclaimer: Although the administrators and moderators of Maryland Shooters will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, we can't review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners and moderators of Maryland Shooters nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

    The contents of this website are provided 'as is' without warranty of any kind. In no event shall the owners or moderators of Maryland Shooters be liable for any damages suffered or alleged to have been suffered in the course of using this website or the information contained herein. All liability is assumed by the user.

    By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

    The moderators of Maryland Shooters reserve the right to remove, edit, move, or close any thread, and/or ban or restrict any member for any reason.

    Personal attacks: This is a forum of and for adults. Personal attacks and insults at other members is not acceptable. Everyone also has access to the "edit" and "delete" functions for their own posts, so losing your temper is not an excuse.

    Common Courtesy: Is expected of everyone. This is a very general rule but one that any adult shouldn't have trouble following. As a rule, if you wouldn't say something to someone's face, then you should think twice before saying to them it over the Internet. Remember that everyone places different values on things and what's small and insignificant to you might be a big deal to another member.

    Illegal Activity: No threads or posts discussing how to violate laws.

    Racially offensive material: Racially offensive postings or material are not welcome and will get you banned quickly. This is a diverse forum of people from many different ethnicities, all of whom are welcome here. Diversity is welcome at Maryland Shooters. If you don't like that, then please find somewhere else to go.

    Use of the private messaging system: Use of the PM system to circumvent the rules will not be tolerated, especially when it comes to the buying and selling of items.

    Threats: Threatening another member in any way will get you banned in very short order. This is a local forum and many of us run into one another in the real world (so think twice before your gorilla mouth overdrafts your parakeet ass). This category not only includes physical threats but also threatening someone's job or carry status, etc. because you disagree with them or don't like them.

    Copyright violations: Cutting and pasting any external article content is not permitted. If you care about the forum please don't do it. We can't afford to get shut down over a needless lawsuit and these legal firms are getting more aggressive about coming after site owners. So when you want to reference an article, you may post:
    1)A link to the article.
    2)The title of the article.
    3)A brief summation in your own words of the article.
    That is it. Nothing more. As in nothing, nada, zero. No first sentence clipped out, nothing. Violating this policy will draw infractions and/or banning regardless of who you are.

    Advertising: No self-promoting of business links/interests is allowed. Businesses (including YouTube/Instagram folks) need to contact Kevin for information on becoming an Industry Partner.

    I'll put it here so it's finally codified...

    No more threads to discuss and or share pictures of women/ girls/ ladies/ attractive people. No more posts for that purpose in other threads. No more links shared just for that purpose. This isn't a porn site, it's not even Maxim. If the purpose is because the person in the picture is attractive, it doesn't belong here. Period. Full stop. No more ever again. You want to look at beautiful women, the internet is full of them. Go elsewhere.
