Nobody would read it, sort of like the off-topic sticky in this very sub-forum. Plus, if it did work, it would take away all the fun of seeing three or four of them on the first page of the handgun fora. Not to mention that I got my start on TFL with a "First Gun" thread...
So, how about an off-topic forum?
