I will post the information later about login, but get ready.

Chat time will start at 8:00pm Central time, as usual it will start early and usually end late.

Bring your own topics and have fun.

Voice server will use the usual Ventrilo software that is free from www.ventrilo.com

Dial up works and you dont have to have a microphone, but if you have one you will be able to talk to us with your own voice instead of using the chat.

Join in!!!!

Go to www.ventrilo.com and get the client version.

I will supply an IP address so you can log in around 7pm tonight, in the meantime run ventrilo (it will be in your programs) and test it using the settings. Make sure you use the Push to talk hot key, make the hot key F12 or something like it.

There are further instructions on the ventrilo website.

Click HERE for the ventrilo website.

Gonna miss you kyle!

Everyone else join in for the discussions!

Go to ventrilo and get the client software. Read the FAQ and setup questions there and you can get in.

Dial up is working fine, there is one guy in right now and its crystal clear

I enjoyed the whole discussion. We are a growing group. Even Nick joined in for a little bit. All the new faces were a nice addition to the group.

PhilOhio was in for a great discussion about his Thompson and we were all refering to Frank's book during that discussion.

We discussed a newer members very early Colt and his recent purchase, JC Devine auctions, etc...

If you are thinking of joining next Sunday, do it, its free and there is a lot to learn.

You can just listen in or can join via instant chat if you don't have a microphone.

We all had a good time.
