Re: VASKA vs. WASR 10, thoughts?

Anyone know why it doesn’t work now? I’m on my iPhone, and for some reason Tapatalk can’t seem to find the forum.

If you have better ideas, I'm all ears. :lurker:
Perhaps some kind of question(s) that must be answered to create your account. We can discuss it at the staff meeting.
We already have a Q&A anti-spam procedure in place. Logout and try registering as a new user to see it.
