Poll: How many would be interested in a "firearms" subsection?

How many people would like to see a separate sub section in the "off topic" section for the general discussion, use, and maintenance of firearms?

Some things that could be discussed:

proper shooting technique
types of firearms
firearms that I own
firearms that you own
hunting stories
range stories
Assistance from our LEO members in regards to proper/legal configuration of a particular weapon.
optics/sights
tacticool versus tactical
etc, etc, etc.......

*edit Zombie hunting stories are allowed!

Some things that CANNOT be discussed:

your rights as they pertains to the 2nd amendment.
Any thing that has to do with politics.


I'm just throwing this out there. We have a firearms subsection over on tbssowners.com that is pretty popular. I figured with 30,000+ members, there would probably be a significant amount of interest in something like this.

I know there's some fellow shooters around here! Where ya at?

I've been thinking about getting a hand gun lately and being as you are all gun people I shall ask my question. What would be a good, reliable semi-auto pistol? Nothing big or fancy, just something that isn't gonna break. All I'm looking for is a small caliber, like a 9mm or something like that.

Maybe add to your poll: wouldn't mind if you did add the section, but may not participate.

Gets the issue of people not being offended if they don't really want it or not want it...my 2 cents...

I own a Glock 30 (.45 caliber short barrel), and most glocks are pretty indestructible. Glock 9mm guns are readily available and decent guns.

If you're new to handguns, Glock may not be the way to go. I have a Glock 22 mil-spec (.40) and I love it to death. But the lack of a safety can become an issue for people that don't carry often.

I have two Kimber Customs (Eclipse II and Covert II) and they're amazing. Both are .45 and the Covert II (my conceal) has a laser sight. I think they would be better for most because you have a safety on it, which will give you peace of mind.

This Poll is WAY slanted to the Yes side...
Just because you vote no doesn't mean guns are bad and you don't like them.

I found it hard to vote either one since I'm a gun lover, but would rather read about it in the Gun Forums not the Car forums... just sayin..

Unless it's... where is the best place to legally conceal a weapon in a Camaro or how do you carry your deer rifle in the trunk...

haha, the only thing worse than being shot would to be shot by that.... How bad would it be to have a tombstone that reads "he was shot by a pink gun with a hello kitty on it".

+1, I own a handgun for protection but I'm not really "into guns". Seems like there would be plenty of forums for firearms. I'm here for the car talk. jmo

I still love my old Sig Sauer P-226 (9mm). It's going on twenty years old now, (Made in West Germany) but as far as a semi auto goes, I trust it! At that time there were several guns I was considering, but what swayed me back then was the fact that the U.S. Navy SEALS (who could have ANYTHING they want) chose that model. That's one endorsement that can't be questioned, and once I got it, I knew why!
