View Full Version : C&R forum?

It appears that you've got the web under control and reliable. Any more news on the C&R Forum front? I know it will be popular and I know that you've been busy.

Just wondering.

BTW, the site is very easy to use and as informative as ever.

Thanks Rome.

Here's the previous thread: http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=59909

It may be sometime next week before we get a definitive answer to your question. I appreciate you bringing this up again.

Fact is, this is my holdup. I apologize. I've been super busy of late. Additionally, I've been on the road for the better part of two weeks and will remain so for at least one more. There's a major project we're working on...it'll all become clear (I hope) by mid-June.

In any case, please bear with and keep reminding me.

No problem, Rich. This was only meant as a reminder. Can't wait to see what's up.

I just posted this question in the general forum.
I guess I should have looked here first!

I am anxious to see this new board form!

We could use the "Harley Nolden's Institute for Firearms Research" as a Dual forum... if Harley doesnt mind.

George makes a good point.
This stuff is right up Harley's alley. Is there a valid reason for a new Forum, given that info?

That would be fine by me but I'd point out that the discussions will go well beyond research. In many respects, this site will most probably mirror the "art of the rifle" site with the big exception being that we are discussing curios and relics, both pistols and rifles, exclusively. I see the topics ranging all over the place from the historical aspect of any particular rifle or pistol, to ammunition and parts sources, to refinishing techniques. It might require that Harley's forum have a name change.

IMHO a dedicated C&R Forum will really take on a life of its own. It is much broader than the title "research" might imply. I'd hate to see those who use that forum get swamped by other, unrelated topics.

I do, very much appreciate the discussion and consideration you're all giving this suggestion. I'm of the opinion that the C&R holders will become very important in the future as people preserving the history of the firearm, especially inlight of the recent political and legislative attacks. I'll even bet that it becomes one of the more visited forums at this site, especially when the word gets out that it is available at TFL. I visit many of the "one gun" sites out there. They certainly serve their purpose but are not very well attended. Having a dedicated forum for C&R firearms in one place will be unique on the internet and will attract tons of posters.

I joined another forum just because they have a C&R FOURM. It is my favorite topic, to me if the gun isn't old I am not interested!
