Happy New Year 2020 and Message to Our Readers Worldwide
Happy New Year to all our readers worldwide, and especially the 48,120+ members of our AccurateShooter Forum. We hope 2020 brings you happiness in your lives and success in your endeavors. And we wish for small groups, good scores, and successful hunts in the New Year.
Looking Forward to 2020
Every year we work to improve AccurateShooter.com. In 2016 we completely overhauled the Forum, making it faster and more mobile-friendly. In 2017 we upgraded our servers. In 2018 we started vetting every new sign-up to prevent scammers. In 2019 we added more security measures, expanded our popular Deals of the Week, and commenced our first-ever exclusive Promos for Gold and Silver members. We hope you’ll continue to enjoy our feature articles, our Daily Bulletin, our match reports, and our Forum Classifieds. The formula seems to be working — our audience is bigger than ever.
Forum Membership Increased 11.5% in 2019
Our Shooters’ Forum grew significantly in 2019. Our membership grew by 11.5% as Forum ranks swelled to 48,120+ members! More people are successfully buying and selling in our Forum Classifieds section than ever before. Silver and Gold members get unlimited Classifieds for 12 months. Gold members also get custom Avatars and other privileges.
We need your support. For 16 years the site has relied largely on volunteer efforts. But as the site grows, we need the assistance of Forum moderators, product testers, web gurus, and computer software experts. Those guys don’t work for glory alone.
Consider this — you’ll pay $25 for a couple movie tickets and a large popcorn these days. For the same twenty-five dollars you can become a Silver Forum member for a YEAR and help this site provide info, tests, tech tips, bargains, and shooting news.
And consider the benefits — Silver or Gold Members get unlimited classifieds for 12 months. If you were to sell just ONE $1500 rifle through Gunbroker.com, you would pay $58.75 in fees! That’s more than our Gold Membership — just to sell one single rifle.
In the last quarter of 2019 about 470 site users have donated or upgraded their Forum membership to Silver or Gold Levels. That’s less than 1% of the membership. We thank all those who have generously contributed. But that still leaves tens of thousands of users who access the site every week without contributing. With more donations we can deliver more premium content and offer more services to our members.
