    Default Pafoa recruitment?

    How come I don't see any representatives at gun shows or anything?
    What does Pafoa do for gun owners?
    Still new here... Just asking

    as well as buy and sell, share trials and tribulations, as well as the occasional meet and greet, and range outing.

    In my time here it’s been more of a online hangout for people who enjoy firearms. Good for bullshitting, sharing ideas, the occasional get together and a way to keep up what is going on in politics.

    My take is at one time it worked towards being more of a legislative influence, but that was before my time. Older members know more about that than me.

    So, there's no active gun groups in Pa that help protect our rights?

    There are groups in Pa that do. Some members who post here do a lot for gun rights. But as far as the forum itself goes, it is not an active entity afaik.

    Here is a group that comes to mind.

    Ha, I wish I had the time.
    I'm a tractor trailer driver with a 4 year old and no family here. My family is all in Maine. I don't mind donating. I can't commit to anything right now.

    I don't believe this is any formal association on paper per se. But rather it's a resource for Pennsylvanians and others for information and for discussion. I don't think it would hurt to spread the word though.

    I guess where my thoughts are coming from is because even though I'm a PA resident of 6 years now. I still follow
    Everything back in Maine. Just seems like GOME (Gun owners of Maine). Are way more organized and active. With paid members and individual chapter's state wide.
    I understand there's alot of commitment involved for someone or lead that type of organization.
    The extent I'm willing to go to is be a member and a possible meeting here and there if pa gun owners was a little more organized.
    Don't get me wrong, please. I appreciate this forum and everything you guys do.
    With they way gun laws are being enacted and there is a new bill be submitted all the time. Seems like maybe we should step it up a notch?
    Is that possibility?
