While I agree it would be nice to have a off topic forum,it would also hammer the mods with work.
Expect it to be the sixty percent closed thread forum from the start.
Also,there are ten thousand other forums where you can shoot the breeze.
The people that run The Firing Line try to restrict it to a guns only subject matter so it does'nt become a free for all site,poorly controlled and full of problems.
So far,this is one of the tightest controlled forums on the internet and I like that.
I don't have to worry about a full blown computer bug dumping itself on my computer when I log in.
