So here's an interesting question: how should we refer to ourselves? As I've been recording podcasts, I feel like I need a better way to refer to the community beyond "the community."

The ones that come immediately to mind are "Marksman Nation" or "Marksman Tribe"

Any other ideas?

Bros 🙂

I kinda like the idea of "Tribe".  We're a group of people who are similarly interested, but I don't know if there's enough of us to call ourselves a 'nation'.  I don't know if I'm on board with "Marksman Tribe" per se, but it may grow on me.

I'm not opposed to any of those, but I also thought of some more martial descriptors like Team, Crew or even Posse.

Internet reputations may be one thing, but cold hard data is another.

Team actually has a lot of appeal to me. I think I shied away from it because I know MVT already has their "Team Coyote" moniker, even though it applies only to a subset of the people in that group. Similarly, ITS adopted "Crew" for their groups.

But Posse, though...that has a nice ring to it honestly. "Marksman Posse"

It has a nice allusion to some of the stuff that Jack Donovan writes about with the "gang."

The "tribe" its most evident in the attributes you all bring to this forum community  🙂  You men are made up of a heritage that has stood the test of time from generations past, present and well into the future.

I like Posse, its a nice throwback to the days of the old west & going after the bad guys/defending the homestead.

Also, who here didn't play cowboys & indians as a kid?

I loathe the use of "Whatever Nation" all over the place. I can't explain why it irritates me but it sure does.

lol, I get that. It's funny because I noticed the same trend but put it up here anyway.

Was there a final decision on this?

@pete

I've been using "Marksman Tribe" on podcast episodes based on this. Based on the other discussion, I'm open to something else for team jersies/patches/swag
