    Hi Ron, I realize that I am very new to your site and I probably owe you alot for making/ keeping it so awesome... so thank you! I was thinking that a group for us "gun nuts" to hang out and shoot the breeze (terrible pun, I know) would be pretty cool... there seems to be quite a few gun lovers around here and to be honest, you don't win a race by beating a dead horse, so an endless discussion of the Companions weapons or how Traders Armalite shoots 9mm isn't going to give us any additional I.Q. ya know? Maybe some of the others would like to put in their two cents on yea or nay... just some food for thought...

    Thanks Again,
    Sun

    Actually it's how Traders Armalite DOES NOT shoot 9mm.LOL!!!

    Seriously though you have a great idea as I have read on some of the other posts and my pal AEOC had his ass reamed over discussing guns more than once with people citing it as a"beaten to death topic".(maybe it is if you are a veteran,but alot of us are new members right?)

    I find discussing firearms much more interesting than what is more believable "The Interphaser or The Mat Trans".One place where I noticed one guy(not gonna name him,haha(making some smart ass remarks towards guy's like us because we are more interested in discussing something pertinent to Death Lands instead of Outlanders.
    Maybe we should discuss who is cooler:Captain Kirk or Captain Picard for the anti gun people?LOL!!!!!!!

    who is cooler:Captain Kirk or Captain Picard...


    It has to be Picard as he uses a Mark IIIb Phaser rifle, but I don't recall either being in a DL or OL book

    Look on the left pane.  Click the "Groups" link

    You will see in the description that in creating a group, you get your own forum.  Once you create your group, Click on "Discussions" and there is your forum.  All you need to do is create it. Check it out

    Yup. You can create any group you like, and as the owner/creator of the group you can invite anyone you like to join the group. Creating a new group automatically creates a new forum for you here on the message board that only people belonging to that group can see. It is the perfect solution, in that it allows people to talk about whatever esoteric things they want to without being distracted by "done to death" nay sayers.

    Go forth and create ye a group! And let me know if you have any questions or issues, I will be happy to help facilitate the new group in any way I can.

    Thank you very much for the feedback... I am just a little hesitant to start it until I have a few more replies so stand up and be heard if you would like to be a part of it please... I just don't wanna be the only guy there ranting to myself about whether or not an AK-47 is better than an AK-74 lol...
    But honestly though Picard?! I mean COME ON! Kirk was a way better actor... bahahaha

    I would like to participate in a weapons group if one is formed, though I'm not 100% sure it is the right answer since new members of the forum might not notice it and would probably post some of the same questions we are discussing to the general discussion boards and be disparaged by petulant old wrinklies then leave without knowing that we do have an active discussion of such topics.

    Actually B.T.S. I think the ak74 is far superior ans so must the Russkies since they only equip their Spetznaz elite troops with it.In my opinion though all Ak's are pieces of junk.I was in the gun store today and out of 4 ak 47's only one did not give me the utmost difficulty removing and replacing the 30 rd bannana clip mag.The AR 15(M16) is so much of a better designed weapon it's ridiculous.
    Oh by the way Jim,I was joking about the Kirk'Picard thing.I am not nerd enough to care who is cooler.haha!

    I'm gonna start it! Hopefully we can get a few more people to show... I am going to make it open to all comers and hey, maybe we can inform the general populace on firearms and maybe even their importance in a free society... but we will at least have a place to whip that horse out of rigor mortis and back into running trim lol...

    The Group is up and running! Thanks to One Eyed Vengance and the illustrious Mr. Miles we now have a place do a little social plinking... before we get carried away with ourselves I'd like to make one point clear, I will not have personal vendettas/ issues spilling over from the weapons group onto the axlerverse! I'd like you to think of it as our little Las Vegas... what happens there, stays there. Thank you again for the support, and hopefully we can have some good discussions and maybe even some good arguements! lol

    Any rational human being knows that while Picard is the better diplomat, Kirk runs circles around him in the coolness department.

    probably not i talk to literally 100 people a day on the phone and i'd say 70 of them scare me that they own guns...

    best line from Bull Durham rings true......

    i hear you couldn't hit water if you fell out of a F-ing boat..

    damm right...but what is in the brakground you are shooting at then! -O

    I agree that most people who own guns probably are not quite as "brainy"perhaps as JMD BTS and myself.Only problem is people have been murdering each other and waging wars since 4000 B.C.(and that's just recorded history)
    My point being that as scary as it is that alot of firearms owners might not be people who should own them,if you took them away they would just find some other means or devise a weapon to kill or rob with!
