User Donations More Important Than Ever

According to the web tracking service Quantcast, this website now reaches an audience of over 40,000 shooters worldwide. As our audience grows, so do our expenses. We are facing increased costs for bandwidth, Forum hosting, phone charges, product shipping, and transport. So, user donations are more important than ever.

We have had donations from many generous individuals. We thank them for their vital support of the site. But 99.9% of our site users have never contributed — though they may use the site on a daily basis. Remember that all the content we provide is FREE. Even our very effective Classified Ads are free. But in order to continue to offer free content for all, we need to increase revenues. We encourage those who have not contributed to the site before to consider a $12.00 donation — that’s just one dollar a month for an entire year’s worth of information, updated daily.

Consider Giving One Dollar a Month
If even 10% of our users donated just $1.00 per month, i.e. $12 a year, that could make a huge difference. One dollar is less than the price of a cup of coffee. A movie ticket can cost $9.00 or more for 90 minutes of entertainment. Compare that with $12.00 to help maintain a site that provides a full year’s worth of articles, gear reviews, match reports, and much more.

Donate by Check or via PayPal
You can make a donation (via PayPal), using the “DONATION” buttons found on our Home Page and on our Shooters’ Forum (at bottom of page). You do NOT need to have a PayPal account, so long as you have a credit card.

Making Donations by U.S. Mail
If you don’t wish to use the PayPal system, we also accept checks sent via the U.S. Mail. Jason Baney handles the mailed-in contributions. Please include a short note with your name and Forum “nickname” (if any). Make the check payable to “Jason Baney” and mail your check to:
