I would appreciate a section for the discussion of collecting and restoring classic firearms. Also one on shooting and reloading for the classics. It could be titled "Collectors Vault" or something to that effect.

John-
An interesting possibility. However, you'd have to convince us that these topics could not be appropriately handled by the various firearms, gunsmithing and handloading forums already up and running.

Instead of taking up space in other catagories, collector's topics would be centralized in thier own section. Where where would I go right now to ask about bayonets for a Martini-Henry rifle? Or information on proof marks on my Lee-Enfield .303? Other questions such as current values on historic or special addition arms would be appropriate. Ruger is having its 50th anniversery, what is the expexted future value of an anniversery .22 pistol from Ruger? I hope you agree with, and see the need for such a catagory. Thanks.

Wodered about that - Cowboy Action slows down at times and many contributors are outside the SASS, WASA, NCOWS - more interested in "historical" (of which CAS is definitely a part). Other threads also seem to drift off into restoration, old military rifles, hanguns and other firing lines of far away and long ago. Collecting would be much in the same situation - although not all collectibles are necessarily old (such as commemoratives and such) - Couldn't we kick around the idea of "Collecting and Firearms History" - (net worth = $0.02)

Sounds interesting, John...
The technical aspects of coding it the software are easy, but:
1) Is there sufficient interest?
2) Got anyone in mind to moderate it with sufficient expertise?

If the *$#&*%?#! anti-self defense types have their way, they'll all become collector firearms. ;)

Lookin' forward to the new forum.

Harley Nolden's new Forum should handle many of the collector topics. The rest will go well in the other Forums.
