Hosting costs for GunWiki are presently $75/mo, and started on 1/1/09. Initial hosting was free at a friend's co-location facility, but when he got out of the co-lo business I had to find another home for my 1U server.
Ad banners were implemented in early 2012, and as of 7/5/12 are covering 20% or so of the hosting expense.
As of 7/5/12, the total hosting expense to date is $3225. Costs related to the physical hardware are not counted, but I'm not worried about recovering that anyway.
Total donations as of 10/6/09: $5
Total donations as of 10/28/09: $30
TGW is not profit motivated - however, it would be very nice to recover the hosting fees so that I'm not spending my own money.

A big thank you to past and future donors!
Yes, I realize that these donations are via Paypal, which is very anti-gun. Unfortunately, I'm presently unaware of any pro-gun companies which do the same sort of thing which Paypal does.
That having been said, if you would really like to donate and Paypal is completely out of the question, use the Comment option below to contact me and we can work out a different way to get the funds sent.
