I would like to see a forum dedicated to Tips, tricks, and secretes a place people can give ideas they have or someone looking how to do something. Let then discuss any aspect of shooting it would make it a lot easier for people to find the help they need.

That sounds like an interesting suggestion. Could you elaborate a little bit more on the details as you see them?

I guess that an example would be nice, so we could know exactly what you are suggesting.

Make a place where people who thought another way of doing things can share there ideas and get feed back on them, Or if someone is trying to figure out how to do something and just cant get it will be able ask others how they do it, learn some tricks how to do something little easier. make it anything to do with the shooting sports from hunting to plinking

Something like this: When I place a new scope on my handguns I always place some rubber cement on the inside of the rings and allow it to dry before I install the scope. This gives the rings a better gripping serfice to keep it from being scratched and moving under recoil.

I know these things can be put under other forums but one place for suggestions should be easier for people to find just what they need

HandgunH, have you checked out "The Smithy"? I think that might be what you're looking for...

The smithy won't allow you to post tips about how you "fixed" your deer stand, how you made a portable target holder from PVC pipe. What to do if your boots start letting water in. How to make a improvised urinal from a rubber glove and a piece of old rope. All hunters, shooters and smithy's have thought up some things that made there lives easier and more enjoyable in the forum that I am suggesting is a place that they can share the little tid-bits that they thought if and maybe you didn't. Yes some tips,tricks or Suggestions may fit well in to other forum, but some just might not fit so well.

Looks to me....

like you're describing topics that would be most welcome in Gear and Accessories.

I have heard of the futility of trying to pee up a rope but have never considered what way a rubber glove might come into play. I'm going over to gear and accessories right now!

Rubber gloves like the ones used by fire fighters or ambulance personnel use. they are light, small and cheep. What you do with it is
1) Blow it up to make sure it doesn't have any holes in it.
2) Do your "business" in it
3) Use the string to tie it closed so it will not leak and stay odor free
4) You can use it several times in the Crosse of a day
