    Just out of curiousity I wonder which are the "top" 5 firearm forums?

    I seem to visit THR & GlockTalk the most. (I don't even like Glocks, but they have a great "other gun" section.) The Smith & Wesson forum I like, but wish they offered a sub-section for "other guns".. "Family,Friends & Firearms" and "The Firing Line" I like, as well as KTOG for my KelTec interests..

    What great firearms forum am I missing?

    Just Curious.


    Thanks,

    J. Pomeroy

    http://www.handgunforum.net/index.php

    http://www.coloradocarry.com/index.php?referrerid=111 Sis/BIL and Mom are in the Springs so I like to stay current on CO issues so I know what is going on when I visit.

    The only other forum I visit as regularly as THR is the SIG forum. I also check in at the Smith & Wesson and Ruger forums somewhat regularly. Occasionally I will read the Firing Line.

    So my top 5 would be:
    THR
    SIG
    Smith & Wesson
    Ruger
    TFL

    AR15.com has subforums for different categories, which comes in handy.

    I think AR15.com is the biggest that I know of.

    After that, THR, GT, TFL, and maybe FALfiles.com are among the biggest.

    There are websites where you can actually look up this information.

    Here are some online comparison statistics for a multitude of forums.

    http://www.big-boards.com/kw/guns/

    In the gun category, we're actually the 2nd most active gun board there is.

    Wow, didn't realize that. I always thought ARFCOM was a bigger board than us, surprising.

    Surprised me too, I always thought arfcom had way more posts than here.

    Surprised that 1911forum is that big, too. Always thought it felt smaller. Guess I only look at the slower moving subforums there.

    I belong to some very good adult oriented firearm forums. These seem to be successful without the need of moderators and they lack the locked threads that are so prevelant in other forums. These forums are fun, and have a strong feeling of friendship and sharing.
    I am going to keep those secret. :rolleyes:

    Im not going to say what other forum I might go to out of respect.Seems to me that would sorta be like taking a girl on a date and asking her more questions about her sister rather than her.If there was particular bit of info regarding a certain subject I might mention somewhere else or a link.

    I enjoy this place,I like going a wee bit off topic sometimes,it breaks the routine but some other forums I've see they talk more about other stuff rather than guns.And I mean that,a general discussion section should be good for off topic conversation,but a couple gun forums I ve seen have more off topic sections like "sports cars" and "sports" then about guns.
