    I'm so flippin' tired of talking about politics. There needs to be a shooting section so we can talk about the cool stuff.

    A buy/sell/trade section would also be handy.

    As I suspected, you CAN talk sensibly when you actually want to. Some new forum, whether specialized or just general off-topic, would be nice.

    Well, except it must be pretty important to the forum owners, the very first sentence of their post on the Forum Rules says:

    NOTE: This is not a general discussion web site - even the thread for "general discussions" must be fairly related to open carry, firearms and gun rights.
    Their ball, their rules.

    Maybe you should be asking "what other forums do you recommend for general discussion?"

    I see you're trying to employ a sports metaphor, but no sport follows that ethic.

    OK, how about: their property their rules.

    There's plenty of forums for that stuff, I'd prefer to keep things focused. Take a look at arfcom; some decent sections but so many subforums people don't even know what's there.

    well, there is "selecting a handgun" where the shooting characteristics ov various weapons are often compares, dissected, yakked about and I have even seen one or two arguments about ballistics, stopping power etc that have gotten as contentious as anything I have seen on the General or Political threads.

    Well of course there are contentious arguments about stopping power. It's like the gun version of the theory of evolution.:P

    Am added bonus is that the political trolls dont come to the tech threads as they generally don't know WTF they are talking about.
