Under the user's screen name. Under Sig228Nut's name is the word "banned". Whether it's a temporary ban or permanent is unknown.

Ah yes, I see it now. Never noticed that before.

Is there now a police presence here? Kind of been a free-for-all for as long as I've been a member.

It shoots smooth as hell and is comfortable to carry. I almost picked up a P250 but it was the mag size that turned me off to it. Now that they're releasing the 227 the optional mags beat out the capacity of the XDm. Ya oughta see if you can try one out Snake. I've let 1911 and 220 owners shoot mine and they all loved it
I've ahot the XD(m) .45 and for a poly gun it felt alright. Better than the M&P45. The traction is awesome, but the size of the grip up by the web of the hand is too small for my paws. 1911s fit my hands pretty well, and even with the large backstrap in the poly pistol, it just doesn't work for me. The P220 I was checking out the other day fit me pretty darn well.

I've been a Moderator on a couple of forums over the years. This forum does not have active Moderators. Instead, users moderate themselves. You'll notice that there are 2 small icons on the bottom left of each forum post. The icon on the left is the User Online Status Indicator: grey for offline, green for online. Next to that icon is a yellow warning triangle. That icon is for forum members to report abusive or inappropriate posts. The site Admin will review any posts reported as abusive or inappropriate and determine what, if any, action is required. If the Admin receives enough reports of abusive posts from the same user, said user may get a "vacation" from the forums.

Apparently Sig228Nut pissed off enough forum members that he got "voted off the island", so to speak.

Good to know because sometimes the name calling & insults gets carried away on here.
It gets really old fast.
I get on here to learn from the experiences of others. Now the arguements get interesting.

Oh I loved my dad's 220 when I shot it a few months ago. Just hate the mag size! and for the money the XDm came with quite a few things in the case with it!

No doubt. I need to get to a range and rent a 220. Now that the 227 is out, I might just wait for a stainless steel version and go for that. I really think that my .45 is most likely going to be a 1911, though. I'm starting to get an itch that poly guns and big, blocky slides can't scratch!

Actually, there is an active moderator here now. The admin account is "ffadmin", which is a multi-user account for the Forum Foundry staff - the new owners.

The "report" button sends a complaint straight to them, and apparently they saw fit to react.

I realize there's a site Admin, there always is on these sites. But what I don't see are active moderators here. They are usually volunteers from wihin the forum membership that assist the Admin in moderating the forums, cleaning up threads and monitoring/deleting spam and of course, keeping the peace. They can usually be identified in the online user list on the Home page by their user name being highlighted. I've never seen that on his site so I assumed it wasn't being actively moderated. I stand corrected if there is active moderation.

I know what moderators are, I run a Sig Sauer community site of my own (see my signature). I was also once a moderator here at SigTalk.

Now, there are no "moderators", per se, here at SigTalk...but the admin account is a multi-user account that is actively moderating.

On that note, Rock River Arms is advertising the first ever polymer 1911! I thought it was kinda interesting if you wanted to check it out!
