SCCY forum haters

Postby Mark38090 » Wed Jan 04, 2017 9:17 pm

I came here looking to exchange information, likes, dislikes, and possible problems. However there seems to be more haters and negative posters than positive. I understand that not everybody likes their pistol, not everybody has a glowing experience, I'm sure some have had some crappy experience.
But damn, move on! Makes me want to avoid this forum all together.

I agree

I agree! If you hate your Sccy so much, sell it and move on.

When I bought my CPX2 I got what I expected. So I respond to this member who joined in 2015 and just sent his 4th reply. Why? And to all the other negative folks who have lately been appearing here. Everyone has a best side, but some folks missed getting all theirs during their conception when some dirpped down the inside of their mothers thigh. I know, I used to be a Philadelphia cop. Bless us all who can discuss both sides of an issue. Please be one of these folks

Mark;
Thank you for your post...
AND this was NOT a paid advertisement...!
Whenever I or the other administrators contact users for the type of posts you are referring to, they always respond that we are just picking on them, don't allow negative comments, etc. etc. OBVIOUSLY we DO allow negative posts.. All we ask is to be constructive in your posts, not just being a negative ninny...
They never see any fault in what they do, and feel it is there mission to destroy SCCY .. But they do NOT realize that they are not destroying SCCY, but they are destroying a community that has a relationship with the SCCY product.

We have banned some users for a periods of time.. We have even deleted a few users, but in the end, it is users like YOU that can control these posters more than we can...By telling them you don't appreciate their posts. Flagging posts (admins can not follow every post and every thread)
By YOU letting these posters know that know that there comments are only negative and not helpful and not wanted here, it helps modify their behavior, or makes the administrators job easier to suspend or delete accounts.

We talk about taking personal responsibilities with our weapons to protect ourselves within our communities. Let's do the same with this forum,. IF you see something, Say something. Try your best NOT to use DEADLY force, but stand against that which is not good for the community as a whole.

Thank You for your support - The administrators

You spout off about how you are the esteemed monitor of all that is right and just on this forum, yet...
You make a negative comment about me because I advise a potential buyer who wants a safety to consider another manufacturer. How is that is keeping with your holy and pure view of no negativity?
A poster makes a disgusting, negative, sexual comment, and you just ignore it and go on your righteous for God, country and the defense of SCCY tirade.
A forum is for experiences and opinions regarding a product. That would include both positive and negative comments.
Re: The safety issue. You had issues with the CPX safety mechanism and commented about it several times. Many others have had issues with the safety mechanism and have commented about it. The internet is full of comments regarding the CPX safety. The FFL I work with has had so many complaints on the safety, both in operation and location that he is not carrying the CPX-1 any longer. I know of several other FFLs who have gone in the same directions. So I will most definitely advise anyone on this forum who wants a safety on a firearm to consider another manufacturer. You did the same thing in trying to convince the poster how foolish they were to have a safety. Which one of us made more sense and was so much more valuable to the poster who needed direction?
The comment about sliding down the inside of the thigh is offensive to me and probably others. But you, in your high chair of moderator wisdom, don't appear to have a problem with that. BTW = How funny that after that delightfully negative and objectionable comment is the comment "bless us all"
I am so very tired that anything other that a flaming "I love SCCY" comment is viewed as being objectionable. The purpose of a forum is to share both positive and negative comments. It is only in that mode that posters learn and hear the truth.
I will tell you that if someone makes a comment in which they will be doingor have done something unsafe or stupid I will jump right at them. So should anyone.
I have said this before, but if you want a forum that is only pleasant and light and highly positive, then there are several good forums I would recommend: Ladies Home Journal, All Recipes, Highlights for Children. Even those sometimes cross the boundaries of political correctness.
I promise in the future I will remember to put my PC awareness vest on before I comment. But don't expect me to drink the SCCY Kool-Aid first.

My question is why do you continue to come here if you're so unhappy with these weapons. I don't know you or your history with Sccy but if I had a major dislike for a product or a company I wouldn't go back to a website dedicated to that company or product.

This guy needs to go. A few guys like this can kill a forum. People come here because they are proud of their new gun, have a question, or need help with a problem. They DON'T need to hear about wooden shims, quality control or how SCCY should run their company.

I have had my Sccy2 for several months now and am looking at getting a second color for my wife. My history has included experiences with "off brand" guns like the Tanfoglio/EAA Witness. It took a lot of research, reading , YouTube videos before I committed to buying the Sccy. So far, I have had one problem with the gun that was solved with a little hand sanding on the feed ramp. Now, I can reliably shoot tight groups at 20 yards. Image

Don't apologize.. Long over due in several cases..

Funny, I once again was accused of not allowing negative comments, and yet, this thread shows that most would disagree with that statement and that the opposite is true, that too many negative comments were allowed, and allowed WAY to often, and repeatedly....
I also go accused of bashing (not to be named) for directing an owner to look for other brands.. My issue with his comment was that was usually his comment no matter what the complaint or problem was.. Of course if you are not satisfied with a product (for whatever reason) the reasonable choice is to look for an alternative.. I started my response to the poster as I was not trying to offend them and that I felt the safety was redundant based on the design of the pistol. The Poster stated that the safety was necessary not for safety sake, but for his wife's wishes sake.. This is perfectly reasonable.. No gun or bend some to comply to the wishes of their spouse.. SO, He needs a safety, whether it truly makes a positive impact on safety or not..

Somehow I feel we are presently being bashed on some other forum about how unreasonable and unfriendly this site is.. So remember this situation the next time you read such a comment on a forum.. Maybe, just Maybe THEY are the unreasonable party..

So no apology necessary, in fact, I'm actually happy you spoke up.. Thanx for being a good citizen..
