A number of complaints are flowing into TTAG central about the ad at the bottom of the page. We know it’s annoying. We also know it’s a plenty profitable proposition. So . . . we’re going to add what should have been there in the first place: a little X to kill the ad. The question will then become: is that still too annoying for our readers? Or is it like the same deal inside YouTube—a fact of life as we know it? Your input would be much appreciated. For those of you dead set against any assault ads, rest assured that this is a test. This is only a test of a revenue generating procedure. If you could, please grin and bear it for a bit. We will see what’s what money and agro-wise and keep you in the loop. We now return you to your regularly scheduled gun blog. As always we thank you for your time, patience and patronage.
