Sounds like you have a really good handle on how things should be. Start your own forum. It can be "Beyond TheBox's Fave's and some other crap nobody cares about."

Again you make it something it something its not. What's your deal vkingpop? I think you're reading WAYYYY too far into things. Or perhaps I'm not making my point clearly enough. Though I find that hard when the words are very clearly stated and layed out lacking not in punctuation...

I agree completely.....it's exactly the way it should be. It's laid out in such a way that you can read about specific guns. Very helpful if you need to post a question or look for opinions. If they were scattered amid the forum your questions could get lost easily in the shuffle. The way it is now creates some assurance that owners of the same mfg. will see your question.

Again, fine, but move it from general semi auto. That's my main problem with it.

Don't get me wrong, I think most of them are ridiculous and absolutely unnecessary, but that's because I think the guns are overrated. Didn't mean I'm against them having a specific forum, just against it being where it is mucking the semiautomatic forum. They're diluting the waters!

Especially having an m&p and s&w. How absurd and laughable.

Nothing circular about my logic. Perhaps a lack of full disclosure, but far from your poor and incompetent diagnosis.

Where else would you put semi-auto guns? What do you shoot, by the way?

Are you sure that you should be insulting me? After all, I'm not the idiot thinking that semi-auto's shouldn't be in the semi-auto forum.

Talking about semi auto is fine, in semi auto, but plaguing the first full page of it with subfora is absolutely absurd to me.

I shoot semiautomatic only. Handgun only. This this is my home here, hence perturbation with all this. But then again, you probably don't understand. Surprise.

You only further prove my point. Utter incompetence in assessment. Disgustingly so. A simpletons view is more apt. I quit, deaf ears are usually intentional.

Like I said, somebodys meds have run out. I"m not going to argue with you, you're just wrong. But it's your opinion and that is all that matters....at least to you.
Personally I'd like to see a sub-forum for EVERY semi-auto made. That would greatly speed things up when looking for advice or reviews on a certain gun. And if that pissed you off, that would be a bonus.
