I have no Irish in me and I have 4 bottles of Guinness Draught in my fridge I will never drink.

So........... I will drop them off at NFA tomorrow if someone of legal drinking age wants them :D

First come, first serve!

The expression "pay it forward" is used to describe the concept of asking that a good turn be repaid by having it done to others instead. In contract law, typically there are two parties but there is the concept of third party beneficiaries. Pay it forward merely applies this contract law concept so that third party beneficiary be a stranger to the creditor (or obligee). More specifically, the creditor (obligee) offers the debtor (obligor) the option of "paying" the debt forward by lending it to a third person instead of paying it back to the original creditor. Debt and payments can be monetary or by good deeds. In sociology, this concept is called "generalized reciprocity" or "generalized exchange". A related transaction, which starts with a gift instead of a loan, is alternative giving.

I've seen a pay it forward thread on another gun forum, looked like a good idea. maybe we can make a dedicated one here?
It works like this, someone has something free to give, and the first person to call dibs gets it. the taker then has to post something free to give to somoene else, and so on.
