When Virgil first pitched the idea of a forum I thought it was great. A little quote went through my mind as I was thinking about where we would find ourselves in the following years. It goes something like, “A smart man learns from his mistakes, a wise man learns from the mistakes of others, and a bored man creates and browses a forum to learn about mistakes he didn’t even know existed.” Virgil and I have made mistakes, and have learned from our own as well as each others mistakes. This forum is for you, the reader, to learn from our mistakes. Hopefully this saves you money and heartache as you seek to improve yourself for the rigours that can be found in Combat Arms.
