censorship Tactics & Applications Purchases LightFighter.net Dave Merrill March 1, 2021 Join the Conversation With censorship becoming a large issue across platforms, many are seeking out more-friendly pastures. Though stepping away from Facebook and their Groups is no guarantee one won't be censored, you won't have to deal with their algorithm issues. Still, the issue remains of establishing a new platform. Recently an organization that started on Facebook in 2017, Tactics & Applications, made the leap by purchasing the well-established LightFighter Forum. Here's what they have to say about it: For nearly 20 years, Lightfighter.net has been regarded as the definitive source for factual discussion, learning, and exchange of ideas in an online forum for the tactical shooting community. For those in martial professions such as Law Enforcement, Military, or Security Contracting; it set the tone and standard for experiential and fact based input for the greater gun community. This is but one of many legacy footprints that can be attributed to the late Pat Rogers and many other esteemed and noteworthy members. Since 2017, Tactics & Applications has provided members of the 2A community a social media based service they never had previously; a place where they could speak directly (and casually) to some of the greatest minds the industry has to offer. All this without their questions and discussions being marred, muddied, or distracted by conflicts of interest or irrelevant input from those lacking experience or credibility in the topics being discussed. This to ensure they get not only the information they are looking for, but with the proper context and frame of reference. With the current state of affairs across both the political spectrum and social media landscapes, it is imperative that professionals and 2A enthusiasts alike have an unbiased safe haven for discussion, education, and community. Tactics & Applications has acquired Lightfighter.net to ensure that the atmosphere and avenues conducive to producing and archiving the information both entities are known for are safe and secure going forward. The sanctity and preservation of these information sources is therefore guaranteed beyond the whim and auspices of social media moguls, politicians, and other questionable actors. The most historically relevant collection of data and experience known throughout the firearms industry and tactical end-user community, and the most recently relevant aggregate of quality content and discussion between the generators and audience thereof have now been combined under one roof. All this to ensure the longevity and proper care of the information and surrounding community trusted across the country with life & death conversation and decision making. Founder and CEO of Tactics & Applications, LLC, Frank Woods, says “I’m grateful for the opportunity to be the curator of the great base of information that is Lightfighter, and the opportunity to continue the legacy of the forum, while making improvements to both communities for the good of all 2A enthusiasts.” He went on to say, “The gravity of this honor is ever present and I do not take it lightly. I’m proud of my team and their hard work to make this acquisition happen, and we are as excited as ever to move forward with the community.” For advertising opportunities, please contact [email protected] to inquire.
