Are there any active newsgroups for firearms or airguns?
There must be some web forums, I'm particularly looking for ones which are UK based.
What's happened to this group? It used to have a lot of traffic years ago.
[MODERATOR: To my knowledge, this remains the sole newsgroup for tech talk
about firearms. Why is volume down? A reasonable guess is "web sites". We
resisted sub-groups here for years, chiefly arguing that the only way the
community would remain a community is if we shared a single (digital) home
that everyone checked; we would Balkanize overwise. We never split up here
but those who only want to listen to the sound of voices like theirs split
off to different technology. There is a web site for every specialization.
And indeed, overall we have less community for it.
We're still here. Post away! ]
