Happy New Year From The Truth About Guns

happy new year champagne gun


As we approach The Truth About Guns’ 10th anniversary early next year, we’ve passed some noteworthy milestones. We passed the two million comments mark within the last sixty days. We also just had our largest single traffic day and month in our history.

As always, everyone here at TTAG appreciates the continued support and participation of our outstanding, engaged readership. None of this would be possible without you.

We’re look forward to an interesting — and likely challenging — 2020. So from all of us to all of you have a happy and a healthy new year.

    Any chance of finding a new range and enough manufacturers for Texas Firearms Festival 2.0? Even if not in Texas. I made the trip from MI in 2016 and it was awesome!

    1. avatar M1Lou says:

      I wanted to go to that event, but couldn’t due to being in a hot sandy place that was not Texas. I would plan to go if they had another. It looked like an awesome time.

    Happy New Year! Time to pray more frequently for Virginia and the USA! We need God’s grace more than ever.

    I am relatively new to firearms; I purchased my first pistol and shotgun late in 2016. TTAG, and all of you, have provided much education, training suggestions, and experience/wisdom. Some good laughs, also!

    Thank you, TTAG, and all of you who post here!

    Health, joy, love, and prosperity for this new year!!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, Everyone. ,,,,, I’m thinking this new town I moved to might be A Okay, 24:00 hours she lit up with gunfire and fireworks .

      Considering where I was one year ago today, using a walker and over $140,000 in debt and a lengthy recovery ahead, it doesn’t get much better than this. Mostly-healed, debt-free and some cool new guns to play with.

      May the good gun people have a most excellent new year, and may the TTAG trolls all get a combination of incurable venereal diseases, gingivitis, and stage 4 cancers.

      (Spreading the love, wherever I go… 😉 )

        And terminal halitosis…

        *snicker* 😉

    Happy new year y’all! Been here daily for years. Always enjoy the banter and discussions. Still miss my daily digest though🤦🏼‍♂️. Stay safe, stay armed!

    1. avatar possum, and the "Coons of Doom" says:

      I liked the “captionn this” myself, skip the prize. I also liked the pocket dump of the day even though I ragged on it s lot it was fun to see other people’s ECC’s

      1. avatar GaPharmD says:

        YES !! The caption this was always hilarious…. though I didn’t agree with the winners for the most part

        1. avatar Geoff "What would John Wick do?" PR says:

          Shockingly, even I won a caption contest…

  12. avatar Prndll says:

    Wish everyone a more prosperous 2020

    2020….the year for clarity of vision

    1. avatar possum, and the "Coons of Doom" says:

      Going to eye doc the 7th, see about getting my cataracts fixed,,,👍

      1. Hey, Possum; I had both my eyes done a couple of years ago……..It’s nothing to worry about. They were both done about a week apart………….Good Luck !

      2. avatar Geoff "What would John Wick do?" PR says:

        “Going to eye doc the 7th, see about getting my cataracts fixed,,,👍”

        I see my surgeon in two days to get that done. Everyone tells me the results will be amazing. I hope so, driving at night currently sucks.

        And I can afford to get it done thanks to being nearly killed last December 20.

        Best luck on yours!

    …happy New Year from the hinterlands of north Idaho. Enjoyed the sounds of neighbor’s “balistic celebration” from across the valley. Looking forward to improving basic health in 2020.

  14. avatar Nanook says:

    Happy New Year Folk! Let’s not forget in the year 2020, that we’ve just about lost all of our war vets from WWII and Korea. The reason why we have a free nation today is because our Fathers and Grandfathers knew how to shoot! You were taught to shoot by your Father growing up. So in order to keep this great tradition going, you need to take your kids out and start shooting. Start with a pellet gun, then 22 and go from there. When the old timers were drafted, they were already deer hunters. They were outdoorsmen who could take care of themselves and endure hardships. Let’s not let those important skills get lost in the modern world.

    1. avatar possum, and the "Coons of Doom" says:

      What’s that you say, I’ve got my eyes buried in Facebook,, then I’m playing video games. no time for that target shooting snd outdoor stuff.

    Happy new year!

    Happy New Year!

    As an original TTAG commenter and sometimes writer for the last decade, I can remember when we had a dozen frequent commenters and just one tr0ll.

    Times have changed.

    1. avatar M1Lou says:


      He was entertaining for a while.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        That’s the guy! But I forgot JadeGold. He was never fun.

    2. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

      Same. Been a long time Ralph. Here is to another 10 years!

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        Yessir. But at my age, I’m thinking that another ten would be a miracle.

        1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

          Strange how everyone wants to live a long life, yet no one wants to get old.

          The game is rigged, I fear… 😉

    3. avatar RCC says:


      I remember the small site numbers.

      Not sure how long I have been reading the site but I did go back to the original pages and read them all years back. First time I had been a hospital patient in 40 years and I had a lot of reading time.

      Have also found that TTAG is banned in about 6 countries while travelling. Hopefully will be back in USA late this year.

      It’s already the 2nd here in Australia and I am going to try get to the range more this year. Knee replacement with complications and house remodeling slowed me down since last July. I did get six hunting trips in before that though.

      Hope everyone has a good year.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        I hope you feel better this year than last!

  17. avatar M1Lou says:

    I’ve been a daily reader since DEC 2012. There aren’t too many websites that are on that list for me. Hopefully TTAG keeps up the great work. There are a few posts I miss that I wish you would bring back, but they don’t seriously impact my enjoyment. More of a nostalgia thing.

  18. avatar Craig in IA says:

    May you all have a happy, safe and profitable 2020, and thanks, Dan, for managing the site. Sometimes it looks like trying to herd cats, but better by far to have it and the voice than not. All the best, everyone.
