    Default This is a truly great site w even better people

    I am a relative newbie to the MartinTech site, but it is truly awesome. Because he is a jumble man, I won't say the name of one Vet who served our country for years as a proud member of the 101st Airborne, but heis like so many members-selfless.

    I had to twist this gentleman's arm to take anything for a brand new set of Nitro 3.0 cams.

    He & others here define what this sport/lifestyle is all about!

    I agree with you 100%. The members make the forum, and I appreciate the way the members on here treat each other. It makes my job easier as well.

    I believe it. This will sound a bit silly to some, especially younger folks, but this.truly is something the founding fathers of modern archery would be proud of. My dad met Mr. Bear, as in Fred, and the man was willing to share every ounce of his knowledge with anyone who had a passion for archery. The site would make Mr. G Martin very proud. Kudos to all who share their experiences, knowledge, and equipment with the remaining few who share the passion many folks on sites like AT just seem to lack.

    As long as we all remember that we once didn't know the meaning of ATA or BH, and we speak/reply with complete respect to those who ask the most basic questions questions, the love these great men shared for the sport/way of life will continue.

    God bless everyone, the passion we share for archery, and our wonderful Country where this is possible.....In case people were wondering, the Martin Militia never died.

    elcid99 I couldn't agree with you more. I am somewhat a newbie myself having just returned to archery about 6 months ago after a long hiatus. I say I am new because so much changed with bows from when I was younger so I am relearning a lot of things. This site and the people on it are an unending source of knowledge and everyone is polite and always willing to help and answer any questions folks may have. I have learned a ton just reading through older posts. God bless you too sir.

    You guys are gonna make me cry. Nice to hear such good reviews of this site. Since the days I became an admin, with the gracious help of some others, we drew up some "rules of engagement", if I can use the phrase. One of those rules is that everybody has different views and should be respected. I don't know how many actually read the rules, but it just seems that we have members here who are willing to share their experiences and show respect for each other and promote Martin Archery and the sport of archery/bowhunting in general. As such, there is little in the way of policing needs done, making the job of the mods and myself so much easier. To that end, I would like to thank all the active members.

    I didn't intend to come across as a sap when I started this thread. I was trying to say that the way people interact on here is the way we as archers/hunters treated each other 20+ years ago. Not that anyone on here would need to, but folks on here don't hide behind a computer like so many do on another site.

    New to this site, but certainly not a new archer. Respect has been the name of the game since I started slinging arrows over 25 years ago. If someone has an opinion, people realize it & respond accordingly....agree/disagree or whatever, but from what I have seen people are not attacked for for.simply providing an opinion. The folks on AT attack one another & many times respond with fighting words for nearly everything.....I feel rather sorry for them as they are not happy people.

    So, it is nice to see mods who are involved in discussing archery vs having to police a site. I hope the new brass at Martin realize what they have....experienced archers who not only love Martin bows, but more important, truly treat others as they would like to be treated.

    As mxtuner might say, well done "gents."

    elcid99,

    You didn't come as a sap so don't need to apologize for anything. What's more, most times I'm a happy go lucky guy so please read some posts with humor in mind. And I do know what you men about AT. I spend a lot of time on their, too, but have gotten to a point that I lurk more than post. Now go have fun with the guys on here. Bye Bye.

    Lurking on AT is like watching a train wreck or MMA fight...you can't help yourself. Sad too. I admit many bows are out there, but man those Mathews folks believe a deer has never been double lunged by any other bow.....heck, they truly think pros shoot them bc they are superior....they don't understand that those dudes who shoot pro can put most of us to shame w my bear whitetail....not exactly a pleasure to shoot, but they could dot an i & cross a t with it!
