Here is a google map, you can use it to find goons around you.

YO BUT WHY WOULD I EVEN WANT TO
The purpose of this map is to help us find one other in near locales so we can:
* ask each other for help & about local laws and resources
* Meet up and become ~*friends*~.
* Have goon shoots.
* Share reloading equipment.
* Add fresh blood to gun/book/wife swapping groups.

i met some good ppl at tfr meets some of whom i am friends with 10 years later in the dystopian future we now occupy -- ZenMastaT, 2016

WOW THERE'S A LOT OF GOONS IN MY AREA, MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE OUR OWN THREAD?? Use the tag and look at the first page of the Houston thread as an example of what a good informative OP looks like.
* Michigan!
* Tennessee!
* Houston!
* San Francisco!
* Pennsylvania!
* Illinois!

OKAY YOU'VE SOLD ME, HOW DO I JOIN??
Post in this thread if you would like to be added to the map,and I will add a pin representing you (in your general area). Make your location as specific or vague as you like. Specific is better, as it lets people know how far they'd have to drive to meet you, and help them decide if they want to bother trying to make friends with you, you goony rear end goon.

WE HAVE SHOOTERS FROM OUTSIDE THE US HERE, WHO KNEW
we're fairly US-centric here and that sucks. I bet traveling goons would looooove to visit and bring you gifts from our magical land of many weapons. joking about this probably violates some trafficking & terrorism statute.

CONTAKT: If you'd like to get up with goons, or get got up with, and you DON'T have PM/platinum, it'd be a good idea to throw on an email address. You can encapsulate it with text:
* username @ gmail.com
* rot13 of same; username@gmail = hfreanzr@tznvy (here is a rot13 encapsulator)
or hide it in an image. or do both for extra security! Hell, you could throw on a phone number.

xTRAz: Mention information you'd like to throw in the NOTES field:
* specific interests (archery, long guns, 3gun)
* places you shoot, contact info
* willingness to meet with others (one goon mentioned he's willing to tutor anyone who buys him beer)

PICZ: If you'd like to associate photo(s) with your pin, you can do so, I just need a photo URL. It can be anything that doesn't break SFW rules or offend my personal tastes (no bikini girls, cats, sporterized mosins, anime)

STATZ:
* US/CA goons: at least a hundred.
* Non US goons: twelve!
* Mystery goons: down to seven! congrats to NickBlasta for swallowing his ironypride and sharing his location! The other seven thought this was a good thread to make unfunny irony posts in. They are on the "idiot children" tab, in the bermuda ocean.

Surprisingly this is listed on Zillow.

The list of features is surprisingly modest but it is cable ready and the estimated home owner's insurance rate is a mere $67!
