    One member asked that I change the name of the forum for the assault rifle (AR15,AK47) forum. I renamed it SPORTING rifles.

    Why in the world are you worried about being PC? Who the F calls them Sporting rifles? Might as well go ahead and remove the picture of the AR while you are at it. That's my opinion and worth nothing. It's your deal, run it as you see fit.

    That being said, I think there are way too many categories. Could easily get away with 4-5.

    Thats what I've been waiting for !! Someone who will speak him mind about my forum ...thanks !! I started off calling them assault rifles because I think thats what most people call them. Sporting rifles doesnt sound so bad, after all they are fun to shoot and they arent reallyhunting rifles.

    So what else should I call them ... Military style rifles? Semi-auto something-or-another rifle? How about soon-to-be-banned-by-Obama rifles.

    I agree that there may be a lot of catagories but I wanted to seperate the pump shotguns from the double barell shotguns and the revolvers from the semi-auto pistols.I guess I could scale back some on the WANT TO BUT section and eliminate the different sub-catagories.

    KEEP BRINGING ON THE SUGGESTIONS.........I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY ARE !!

    AND SOMEONE LIST A GUN FOR SALE OR A GUN THEY ARE LOOKING TO BUY.

    THANKS ALL !!

    I agree with VAopencarry. IMHO, it's waaaay too many categories, which means it's too confusing.Where do I sell my SPAS-12? In the pump or the auuto shotguns sections? Or my Savage .22/.410 O/U combination? Can I sell my Browing .30-06 autoloader in the "sporting rifles" section or the semi-auto? And what about my Remingotn R-15 VTR?

    You want honest opinions, right? Here's mine:If I was looking to buy or sell a gun online, your site (as designed)would be almost the last I'd consider because it's so confusing and involved. If you're serious about it, I'd say six to seven sub-forums at the most...WTS/WTB handguns, WTS/WTB rifles, WTS/WTB shotguns, etc.. Or better yet, how about how about three sub-forums: WTB firearms, WTS firearms, WTB/WTS accessories.

    OK, I'm going to trim it down !! Glad more people are chiming in and giving some input !!

    Keep it coming !!!!!:celebrate

    How much you want for your .410/.22 ?

    Still too many categories IMO. Make 1 WTB section and then have subcategories for Pistols/Rifles/NFA/Accessories. I don't think you want to have too many as some of the categories might not have much traffic to warrant having it's own category. IMO, it's better to start off with fewer categories and branch off when necessary (KISS mentality)

    Notice the subforum headers here on OCDO aren't ALL INTERNET-SCREAMING AT YOU.

    How about having a section listing For Sale and Want to buy, then having subcategories underneath. Like below:

    For Sale

    • Handgun
    • Long Guns (Shotgun/Rifle)
    • NFA (SBR/AOW/Suppressors/Machine Guns)
    • Accessories (Holster, knives, flashlights, etc.)
    • Ammo

    Want to buy

    • Handgun
    • Long Guns (Shotgun/Rifle)
    • NFA (SBR/AOW/Suppressors/Machine Guns)
    • Accessories (Holster, knives, flashlights, etc.)
    • Ammo

    Current format isn't bad at all. Easy to navigate and very self-explanatory. Those are two of the hallmarks of a good site.

    I like it.

    My only complaint... lack of content. C'mon, where's the stuff for sale? :P

    Another bump. I just registered, but there are ony two guns for sale. Let's get more!

    BTW, I like the categories as they are now. You might want to make it "For Sale/Trade".

    Regarding the recommended rules, check out some of the other sites (e.g., Glock, Firing Line, THR, etc.) and see what rules they use...then copy them. All are pretty straight-forward. Other sites also show the state in the post. Maybe we need to show relative location in the state (e.g., NoVA, SE VA, etc.) so we can identify the FTF opportunities.

    Good job! Keep it up.

    When I do the REAL forum I'll add the rules, still need to figure out what I need to list as rules. I'll check the other sites and see what their rules are. Basicly just guns/accessories for sale, no cars, boats, realestate.

    And everyone needs to follow state and federal laws pertaining to the selling/purchasing/possesion of firearms.

    Another suggestion worth mentioning is a system of feedback. Just a thread, or something, where we can rate our transactions and the seller/buyer type of thing.

    It would help with credibility issues and all that jazz.
