    Gunslinger Newsletter for Week of 8/22/2011:

    There is always something going on in the Gunslingers Clan, so we like to whip up a brief newsletter of noteworthy updates or interesting tidbits for each week to start off Monday on the right foot.  As you wrap up the first day back to work, take a look at what has been going on in the ever active clan exclusively for mature, casual gamers!

    Membership Milestone - As I have stated in prior posts, the Gunslingers got to celebrate the occasion of becoming over 2,500 members strong this Frosty Pints weekend.  I will be the first to admit that I had never intended or would have predicted the GS success.  What surprises new members the most is just how tight knit our clan is while also enjoying the immense level of options he/she has when building a friend roster exclusively comprised of fellow adult gamers.  It is a powerful statement about positivity. True, online negativity and cynicism turn heads and get people refreshing the page for the latest development of gossip, but, ultimately, the average person---the silent majority--just wants to have a good time and be treated with respect.  That is the Gunslingers.  And I thank every single one of our members for doing their part in creating a community that defies the all-too-common clan experience.

    GS Facebook - The Gunslingers added a facebook group for our members out of a late night whim.  Now, over 200 of our members use it on a regular basis!  If you want to take part in the freight train-like speed of real-time discussions and notices that members are getting online to play some games, add yourself to our Facebook group after registering your Gunslinger membership in the GS Forums!  It is by no means required to be a member, but it is there if you are interested!

    RebelBred's Tattoo - Some of our members personify the Gunslinger spirit in their real life.  RebelBred is a fine example.  He has recently gotten a killer tattoo of a cowboy out of his long time interest in the Old West.  It is well done, and swing on by GS to check out pics of it sometime!

    GS Arcade - We install a new game in our custom GunslingerGaming.com Arcade every week!  This week, we are really showing our age by adding Yahtzee!  We aren't nicknamed the "Geezer Squad" for nothing!  Roll those virtual dice for the highest score today!  Yelling "Yahtzee" while firing warning shots at kids who dare cut across your lawn is optional and will not be reflected in the highscore list.

    Gunslinger Newsletter for Week of 8/29/2011:

    Some of us are getting our kids off to their first days of school.  Some of us are taking night classes with not-so-secret dreams of landing a better job and giving the finger to our bosses.  Some of us are gaming after work and on our days off as usual.  Whatever best describes you, here are some updates happening in the Gunslingers community that you may find interesting!

    Atari Trivia - What happens when you create a clan of over 2,500 adult gamers?  You get a lot of retro gaming reminiscing between matches!  To augment that urge, we have installed the Atari Quiz Challenge in our ever growing custom GS Arcade!  How much do you remember from the Atari glory days?  Swing on by GS and find out!

    Gunslinger Banner Making - For a few years now, the Gunslinger members with an eye for banner making have been making some top-notch personal banners for their fellow members.  That creative pool has exploded lately!  Check out the "GS Banner Exchange" thread within the General Gaming Discussions section of the GunslingerGaming.com Forums to see for yourself!

    The Sports Fans Amongst GS - You may know the Gunslingers for this franchise, but, being a collection of well balanced adults, some GSers are also sports fans.  That is why we have added a Master List for Madden 2012 for swapping game contacts!  Whether you are slinging the guns or the pig skin, let's have some fun!

    The Gunslingers are recruiting all fellow casual, mature adults.  If the above information has caught your interest, please stop by <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.gunslingergaming.com">www.gunslingergaming.com</a><!-- w --> to learn more about our group.  Nearly all of our content is public (we are a clan with nothing to hide), we invite you to take a look around.  If you like what you see, register in our GS Forums to start your membership.  It is that simple!

    I often speak of the good times in the Gunslinger recruiting thread.  Frosty Pints.  Tournaments.  Lively forum discussions.  Hilarious moments in chat.  All those are true, and they are certainly worth a toast, whether it be via a raised coffee mug or an evening drink.  Not everything is going well in the world, however.  I believe we all know a close friend, a spouse, or a relative feeling the blow of a fraying economy.  Heck, maybe you can include yourself in that number.  I have even seen some GS members affected by the times.  When we set out to create a group for the mature gamer, we hoped to give an oasis for parent and other hard working adults who are too busy be bothered with silly (yet typical) clan obligations.  True friendships came with the territory as a bonus.  Networking is a true surprise.  Time and time again I am seeing GS members "getting each others back" on more than the virtual battlefield.  One never knows when real life opportunities will present itself, and I am grateful that the Gunslingers has become one of those surprising resources for some of our members.

    The rapid growth and the unique experience of the Gunslingers are due to the type of members who have joined us.  There are reasons.  We are well aware that our formula has been mirrored by some new and established clans alike, but we keep ahead of the pack by actually being what we recruit.  And we don't hide our site's content to force you to join to find that out.  In fact, we want you to feel familiar with the Gunslingers prior to signing up.   That is why nearly all of the Gunslingers website is viewable to guests.  Check under our hood.  Kick our tires.  Give us a test drive.  The more you know about us, the more likely that you will be joining a group that best matches your gaming wants.

    We have been having an exciting week at the Gunslingers!  There were some crazy Frosty Pints nights during the three day Labor Day weekend.  We continued with our tradition of adding a new game to our custom GS Arcade every Monday by adding a McDonalds parody game.  We are celebrating the birthday of our PC Leader, Bobafett86!  We are having a new person join our GS Leader team, who we will publicly announce next week!

    And, of course, we have had some amazing new folks join the Gunslingers in the last seven days!  Let's start their membership off right by giving them a very public shout-out!

    I just got home from a vacation in Colorado to see the season opener between the Colorado Buffs vs. the California Bears, live.  What a great time!  I only frequented taverns that brewed their own poison, did some mountain hikes, and enjoyed the amazing scenery.  A state that has town names like Boulder, Steamboat, and Rifle is the perfect vacation spot for a Gunslinger!

    On the internet front, the Gunslingers clan has been busy, too!  For one, we installed another classic from the past, Puzzle Bobble to the ever custom GS Arcade.  Play like it is 1994 again!  Another development at GS is an addition to the GS Leadership team.  I am proud to announce Slammer as our newest GS*Leader!  He has been a great influence on our community, and we are grateful for his willingness to help out. 

    You will see more additions to the GS Leadership as the fall season progresses because times are booming at the Gunslingers!  We have been getting new members every single day for over a year straight, and we are proud to expand  the most successful social network around for parent and hard working adult gamers at an even greater rate with Call of Duty:  Modern Warfare 3

    Wednesday has passed, even for our American West Coast members.  We had a few new members who snuck just after our epic 39 new sign-ups last week, so let's not let them think that they missed out on the party!  Gunslingers, tip your hat and take a shot of whiskey for the following greenhorns:

    buckwheat32
    SteelAce
    warpig33421
    Billo
    Cowcud
    CashMilton
    Xacinto



    Thank you for joining and welcome to the Gunslingers!

    The literal translation of tipping one's hat to new members is to be sure to check out their introductions and adding their game contacts posted in the Master Contacts Lists section of the GS Forums.  We may have been getting at least one member every single day for over a year, but you would be surprised on just how much more friendly and accommodating we are to everyone who joins the Gunslingers.

    We know that the new member probation periods get old.  We know that the kill/death ratio requirements are unrealistic for anyone, well, employed for starters.  We know how silly it is that other groups want you sign up before seeing any of their content.  The Gunslingers social network for parent and hard working adult gamers is the resounding rebuttal to the typical clan experience. 

    And we want you to join in on the fun of kicking back, grabbing a brew, putting on a headset, and decompressing with mature, casual gamers after a long day.

    The Gunslingers - Blazing Trails for Parent and Hard Working Adult Gamers.
    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    Xbox360. PS3. Wii. PC.

    The weekend is here!  Come celebrate the end of another work week with fellow mature, casual gamers in the infamous Gunslinger event, Frosty Pints!  The concept is simple yet sustaining.  Forget how much of an [insert your favorite insult here] your boss has been this week. Pick your poison.  Grab your headset.  Make sure Call of Duty: Black Ops is in the disc drive.  Join the fun!  You earned it!  The Gunslingers is a clan comprised exclusively of fellow hard working adults and parents looking for the same sort of weekend celebration and game time as you!

    For additional information about Frosty Pints, I recommend checking out the following page found on our site:
