Are you interested in socializing with Diablo 3 players your age but haven't been able to "weed out" all the adolescent gamers? Have you been unable to join traditional, time-consuming clans because, being responsible adult, you have had to juggle your free time with going to college, taking care of children, or being employed in a full time job? In short, are you interested in an online experience akin to "shooting the bull" with a group of drinking buddies? If so, then Diablo 3 Gunslingers is the right place for you!
We are fortunate to have over 4,000 adults registered on our homepage.
We have a large collection of parents. We have a large collection of married couples. We have a large collection of mature, casual gamers. And we have a large collection of hard working men and women members.
If you would like to join the club, you need only to fulfill two things:
That's it! We don't ask for resumes, character ranks, probation periods, or any other sort of silliness. You just want to have fun, right? So do we! If you would like to learn more about membership with the Gunslingers, feel free to visit our "Membership" page of at our website: http://www.gunslinge.../howtojoin.html
We like to ascribe the Gunslinger experience akin to having drinks with some buds after work or partying with them on the weekends. Nothing stops the music faster than a few knuckleheads, so we do have a few guidelines we expect people to follow during their stay:
Pornographic and/or obscene material is prohibited.
Self promotion by new members will likely be treated as spam. This includes promotion of own non-commercial websites.
No personal attacks on other members or various sorts of offensive behavior is allowed.
No glitching/hacking/cheating. We define such as purposefully accessing the game's programming or abusing a flaw in the programming to achieve an act or status that is not intended or possible otherwise.
The Gunslingers experience is as simple and non intrusive as joining up with other adults your own age and playing some games at your convenience. For those of you who like to take part in activities, events, and communications beyond that simple formula, we offer several popular, optional features as well:
It is crazy to think that the Gunslingers group has been together for five years as of June 2012. We started off as a ten member in-game only clan back in 2007, and now we have over 4,000 members and a uniquely welcoming attitude. Ever steadfast in our commitment in defying the perceived laws of clan tradition, we continue to support our members in their freedom of being treated like the rest of us from day-one of their membership in GS, game with them around their demanding work schedules, and promising a homebase to their gaming experience that will always be respectful and civil. A person needs not look far to see that is not truly common on the internet, particularly within gaming clan circles.
Thank you GS Leaders, Toezer, Korchie, Scars, BJS, Scope, Misfit, Slammer, Balki, goppfather, Teufel, Fed Architect, FishinNick, conbrio, Captain Scarlet, and BlastingSlick1, for your proactive dedication towards fielding concerns and helping the rest of us get the most out of the GS experience. Your presence has made a profound difference.
Thank you Gunslinger members for putting weight to my recruiting words. It is quite easy to post recruiting threads claiming such and such attributes to a group experience, but it is all of you through your practice of treating each other with respect, always welcome new members in their Introduction threads, volunteered willingness to help out your fellow members online (and, at times, offline), and working from a mindset of paying forward civility that have made Gunslingers grow throughout the years. Thank you.
Welcome aboard and thank you all for joining the Gunslingers!
Fellow adults looking for a clan experience that is free of silly probation periods, degrading try-out sessions, and toxic clan communications, I invite you to check out the Gunslingers. Nearly all our content is public, so scan through it. Click around our group site. If you like what you see, sign up! We would love to have you as a member, and, when it comes to offering a home for parent and hard working adult gamers, more the merrier!
Again, we are celebrating the Gunslingers 5 Year Anniversary throughout the month of June. We have a number of events planned to honor such a community milestone, and some of which we already have announced. Here is that growing list:
GS Anniversary HeadQuarters - An entire forum section dedicated to all things anniversary related.
Anniversary Give-Away - All members are welcome to throw their name in the hat for a chance of winning an actual Frosty Pints mug.
Anniversary Raffle - All members are welcome to throw their name in the hat for a chance of winning a free rental from Redbox.
Frosty Pints Olympics - Throughout the month of June, we will be running a series of tournaments spanning over several games. Each will have a theme. All of them will be about catching up with friends we have all made throughout the year.
Arcade Tournament - Spanning until the end of June, aim your gun towards the top of the high score list for the game, West Gunfighter, installed in our GS Arcade. The prize? Your forum title will be changed to "2012 Arcade Champion."
...and much, much more to come!
Regardless if you are a current or a potential member, thank you for taking the time to read about our Anniversary.
How many members do you have that are around or 40+yrs old? Sounds like a good place to group up and play.
The average age of our members are around 32, so while that is a little under what you are looking for, we do have plenty of folks older than that average age as well.
We are still celebrating our 5 Year Anniversary as a group during the entire month of June! If you are a fellow hard working adult looking for some simple, social gaming during your down time (Why complicate things? We have bosses for that, right?), you are invited to join the Gunslingers!
Raffles, tournaments called the Frosty Pints Olympics (themed matches + beer = wait, who won?), and other celebratory events are taking place, so it is great timing to join in on the fun. In fact, I have installed "Good Ol' Poker" in the Gunslingers Arcade today!
Adults. Parents. Casual, Mature Gamers. All are welcome.
Our ever welcoming Canadian friend, Dunkaroo69, has become a Gunslingers Leader. Congratulations and thank you for your help!
Perhaps you want to toast Dunkaroo69. Perhaps you want to toast the end of another work week. Perhaps you just want to give toast for toast's sake. Well, in that case, uncork those bottles of wine and uncap those bottlenecks because you are invited to the (in)famous GS tradition otherwise known as Frosty Pints!
Frosty Pints takes place on Friday and Saturday evenings, which actually means all day Friday and Saturday due to having members from time zones across the globe. (Quite the bender, huh!?) The busiest times tend to be from 3:00pm PST and on.
Thank you to all the congratulations I have received on becoming a GS Leader. I look forward to helping out all our present and future gunslingers. Just wanted to say that this is the best gaming community you will find. If you're a mature casual gamer looking for other like-minded gamers to play with, then this is the place for you.
Isn't summer great? The shorts come out of the closet. The flip-flops get pulled out of storage. It's time for fun in the sun, as they like to say. Despite the season, the Gunslingers clan has had a fantastic amount of new members walk through our saloon doors and join us during our 5 Year Anniversary celebrations. Let's take a moment and give a very public shout-out to everyone who have become a Gunslinger in the last two weeks!
WELCOME TO THE GUNSLINGERS AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING!!!
GS is the #1 home for fellow older gamers from around the world, and we invite you to join us. Becoming a member is simple. Visit our base of operations. Take a look around. Nearly all of our content is public because we want you to know that we mean what we say in regards to supplying an oasis for mature, casual gamers. If you like what you see, register in our forums. From there, you can game with the rest of us!
The Diablo 3 Clan for Adults.
Gunslingers - Blazing Trails for Parent and Hard Working Adult Gamers. Gunslinger Gaming
Often, our message to potential and current members alike focus on new memberships and core features of Gunslingers. That makes sense, of course, but I want to take a moment to outline a few of our lesser known perks.
At that GS page, you will find a simple number guessing game and a brief GS trivia game. Self indulgent, for sure, but it serves as a nice hidden extra.
Second, the GS Forums are Tapatalk compatible. If you are tired of zooming in and out of fickle browsers on your cellphone, tablet, idevice, or android to see your favorite gaming forum, I recommend downloading Tapatalk. It builds device-friendly version of your forums. Forums that are compatible, that is. And the GunslingerGaming Forums are Tapatalk enabled. You will notice that the majority of clan forums are hosted on freeware servers, which aren't compatible. We built our forums, and we are mobile friendly!
Lastly, we have a Gunslingers Facebook group. Now, I don't mean that we have thrown together a Facebook group that only allows you to hit a "Like" button and forget about it. We have a FULLY functional Facebook group in addition to our website that enables you to add content, pictures, and discussions. Over three hundred of our active adults have opted to include the group in their daily internet travels while at work, stuck in traffic, or waiting for their kid's soccer game to start. Gaming, particularly gaming with fellow older gamers, should be about sociability, and GS provides you with as many opportunities to add your own footprint to our activity as possible!
Thank you for taking to the time to read about some of our lesser discussed attributes.

Although we still have pending events and updates for July, we have wrapped up our Anniversary Month. Thank you, Gunslingers, for continuing to make us the best group out there for mature, older gamers. Additionally, a lot of new 'slingers strolled through our saloon doors during the last two weeks. Tip your hat and fire a pistol in the air for the following new Gunslingers:
WELCOME TO THE GUNSLINGERS AND THANK YOU ALL FOR JOINING!!!
Giving a virtual home for over sixty fellow mature, casual gamers in just the last two weeks is a fitting end of our anniversary celebrations. We are excited to game with our newest members, and I hope it well demonstrates to any readers thinking of joining up with GS that you will find plenty of fantastic like-minded adults with whom to game!
The Gunslinger Newsletter for Week of July 10th, 2012:
We have had an incredible amount of group activity lately. Perhaps folks are trying to escape the heat wave. Regardless of the reason, it also translates into some exciting updates for the Gunslingers. Please read the following highlights to see what is going on in the #1 home for casual, older gamers around the world:
Frosty Pints Mug Winner - Congratulations to GS*TBONEgohome for winning this year's raffle for a custom Gunslinger beer mug! What he pours into it is between him and the speed of his in-game reflexes.
Gunslinger Controller Winner - Congratulations to GS*Chilly Husky for winning the custom Gunslinger controller created by GS*Fed Architect! Use it with pride, Husky, and thank for crafting such a cool prize, Fed!
History Page Updated - The Gunslingers clan wasn't built over night. It is fun to look back and view all the milestones that got us to where we are today, and that is why the homebase of the group has a page dedicated to doing just that! View http://www.gunslingergaming.com/html/GShistory.html to read up on our progression up to and through June 2012.
July's Member Spotlight - We like to randomly pick an active GS member and write an interview about him/her in our Gunslinger Blog. July 2012's edition features none other than GS*Merky Water! Find out more about this nature loving gaming fiend here: http://gunslingergaming.com/wordpress/
Music Added to Jukebox - One of the great payoffs about amassing fellow adult gamers from around the globe is that people come to us with various backgrounds and talents. A way we showcase the musical portion of said collective talent is through the Gunslinger Jukebox. The jukebox is comprised entirely by music composed by actual Gunslinger members. The latest five tracks come from GS*cjz8z. Check out his and other GS members' music in our forum and chat pages!
New Game Added to Arcade - When we can't get in game with our fellow GSers (usually due to a Netflix addiction of a family member or roommate), the Gunslingers clan has its own personal arcade full of flash games to fall back on. That is why a new game is added every week! This week, the racing game, "Formula Net," has been installed! Give it a spin and be careful around those curves.
Thank you for taking the time to read this week's updates taking place within the Gunslingers. As demonstrated above, we have a lot going on, and we strive to make all like-minded mature, casual gamers feel at home with us. We know you have a busy schedule between work, going back to college, and/or shuttling your kids around town. You want a gaming group that is not going to hold you to time tables, probation periods, or any other form of petty silliness. So do we.
Whoa-hoo! It is already time for another edition of New Member Round-Up! Time sure flies when you are having (summer) fun. We are honored to have more fellow parent and adult gamers join our posse, so let's not keep these 'slingers waiting. The following folks joined the Gunslingers in between July 5th and July 15th:
Do you have any Swedish players? 28 yrs / shiftworking / 6 month old dad, only playing during nights at work.
Currently for Diablo 3, we have members from Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States. While you would be our first Diablo 3 gamer from Sweden, we have members playing other games from Sweden and, regardless, I am sure you would find GSers playingn in your time zone.
At the Gunslingers, we are always looking for new ways to get fellow mature, casual players gaming with each other. Sure, we get together for some rounds of Diablo III, but there may have been titles that we have enjoyed prior to meeting up for that game. That is why we have started a new feature entitled By Gunslinger Demand!
We, from now on, collectively vote for a game already released that is also one of our favorites. The game with the most votes is featured at the Gunslingers with a linked Master List and its own forum section. We hope to get more older gamers swapping contacts and having a good time with this feature!
Join the Gunslingers and start casting your vote! We want you have a great time in this game and other games you have enjoyed in the past.
It is (beyond) time for another round of New Member Round-Up! It is a Gunslinger tradition of acknowledging and showing respect towards all the great fellow older gamers who have joined us as of late. Let's not keep them waiting so, Gunslingers, tip your hat to the following people to join our posse between July 16th and July 27th:
THANK YOU FOR JOINING AND WELCOME TO THE GUNSLINGERS!!!
To new and existing members alike, thank you all for making the Gunslingers such a great group. We continue to defy the laws of tradition by being a friendly, respectful, and laid back gaming clan exclusively for mature, casual gamers. Any guest reading this entry wishing to enjoy the fruits of such a community is encouraged to join us.
