    Can you guys tell me what is wrong with the packing.org site. I was in the middle of posting on that site thursday night when it froze up, said server was too busy. For 2 days i could not get on, then when I do get on, i try to log in and the site will not recognize my IP address, or says that there is a mismatch. What's wrong, my end or theirs? All other forums that I'm registered on still accept my info just fine.

    It's not your end.

    I think their stuff is home grown software. A few guys who got an idea and ran with it. Good but hard to keep up with the growth they seem to have.

    On the flip side are sites like georgiapacking.org and thefiringline.com which use "commercial" software packages like phpBB (free) and vBulletin ($160).

    I used to go to packing.org a lot but got tired of the unreliability. So now I spend most of my time here or on tfl.

    Here's some more people talking about the same thing

    This is a better site for Georgia-specific stuff by far!

    So who else remembers the national "Packing.Org" website run by Mark Solomon?
    I discovered it in 2001 or early 2002, from internet search engine results on gun-related key words.
    I registered at Packing.Org 8/8/2002. Almost exactly 14 years ago.

    Not long after that, the owner enrolled in law school and let the site go. It went offline and I never heard about it, or him, again.
    P.S. I was "GunSmoker" over there, too.

    Several tried to buy it from him, but he would not sell it.

    "Packing.Org" is from the Olden Days, right?

    If I'm not mistaken it's a totally different site if that's what you're asking.

    It's been 10 years? It makes me realize how long I've been carrying.

    GCO has it's roots in packing.org. That is where the "original six" met, concocted, and carried out their plan of debauchery against the racial, anti-gun legacy of Georgia. Was it good for you??

    This website wouldn't exist either.

    As the packing.org admin for Georgia, I created this website to contain all the information which would not easily fit into packing.org's pre-set categories and layout. Which is how I came up with the name for this website... packing.org for Georgia.

    Certainly do remember it. Remember watching it descend into Internet feces, and GS1 providing this site out of the digital ashes. (Thank you!)
