request for off topic forum

I think it would be cool if we could modify the general disscussions forum so that we can talk about stuff like movies or whatever.

G'day. TFL = gun talk. If you want to discuss other topics then go to another forum.

That is about the response you will get.

This forum is just to busy with too many users. Rules regarding language and behavior are hard enuff for the volunteering mods to keep up with as it is... When you add jokes and other such musings, it would soon become offensive to some with less thick skin... Just try and start a "Guns of the confederacy" thread and see how fast it becomes a "war 'tween the states chapter 2" discussion...

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.

I love this forum. I always get a shock if I log onto other forums because of the personal attacks and $#it slinging matches (and language). Like Skull said its a firearms forum.

hoytinak answered it best with the supplied link (and the link at that link linking to at least half a dozen other links).

In other words, sorry, but no.
