    I'd like to expand my field of input a bit. Can somebody list a few other related forums?

    Thanks :)

    Vermonter,

    Everything you need to know can be found right here at the good old THR. Now please return to your seat and fold your arms in your lap nicely. ;)

    All kidding aside, I enjoy AR15.com from time to time, and although very rudimentary, the forum at http://www.backwoodshome.com/ is enjoyable for me as well.

    Farmer

    24hourcampfire.com is decent for hunting, but there are some Fudds there so you might want to avoid the political discussions

    snipershide.com is a great place to go if you're interested in long range shooting

    brianenos.com is great for info related to action shooting

    ar15.com is also a good source of info, but a lot of the thread topics are repetitive (ie: which handguard should I buy, which stripped lower, etc.) and there's a lot of the "better=mil spec" mentality, which may not be a good way to guide your purchases. ie: a chrome-lined barrel and 1:7 twist are often described as being mandatory, when neither is absolutely necessary for the vast majority of shooters. The Equipment Exchange there is the best place I've found to buy an AR.

    czforum.com is good for finding info about CZs, but doesn't have a lot of traffic and has too many sub-forums IMO

    all that being said, THR is the site i frequent most often because there are people who know a lot about almost anything firearm related.

    I'm surprised no one added The Firing Line since THR sorta branched off it way back when (has it been that long?)

    rather than say "Fudds", say "Adults". Big difference. Children don't last long. They just banned Maser.
    The debates there can be rough for the young, the uneducated, and the unprepared. :D

    AR15.com - is great if your into building your own ARs. The equipment exchange there is probably the best on the net. I also like the hometown forums where you can chat with residents from your home state. My only problem is the layout can make your eyes bleed after awhile, and the notion of paying for a $30 membership on a site that has almost a whole page of banner ads. Seems to me like the owner of the site is less of a 2a advocate and more of a $$$ advocate.

    Armed Polite Society - is related and I am suprised it has not been mentioned since its run buy the same guy that runs this site. Its where the threads Art locks go to die.

    FirearmsTalk - A new site run where the moderation is lax, although theres not much activity there now. They have a pretty good general forum there and off topic things don't get locked down. Theres a lot of industry guys there, as well as a few tactics instructors.
