    I joined April 2001. The site never recovered from it's previous users base or knowledge.
    I visit once a day with an average post of 0.04.

    Remember Chief Thunder? I still have lots of his full auto videos.

    Yeah I seem to recall 99 as we were discussing y2k a lot. I also remember staying up half the night during the 2000 election.
    I still believe in this site and post often.

    That was a dick move on there part! All that info is lost and all our posts,etc gone! We are just a shell of what we use to be.

    I believe I joined in late '98.

    After today, it's all historical.

    I remember once that he wanted to ride his motorcycle strapping his M16. I did think that he liked the attention. I was curious though, as he did seem to have some personal issues.

    Not to pile on...but I remember old MC was always going on about he was a dentist & made "300 K a year" & had all these great toys, etc etc.

    Despite that, he later said his wife ran off with some dude who turned out to be bisexual & gave her a fatal dose of AIDS, or something to that effect. I think he might have been bipolar after reading a lot of the stuff he broadcast here...

    I can definitely say your statements are incorrect. I met him more than once and have a cap in my mouth that he made. He is a Dentist and perhaps the best one I've ever had work on my mouth. He did have tons of stuff, much of which went in the divorce from his first wife. ( I got to see his collection and home before all hell broke lose on his marriage). I saw her for maybe 15 minutes one time only. I remember her as on the tall side 5-8 or so, good looking dark hair and evidently crazy as bat-shit. Ducati is a very nice guy from what I could tell, a devote Christian as well.

    I made my observation based on memory of some of the stuff he posted here over the years. If you actually know him, that trumps impressions gleaned from the internet. I hope he's doing okay.

    No problem on making an observation. I just wanted to set the record straight from my face to face perspective. I too hope he is doing OK, he went through some hell on that divorce.
