    Here is a new Ruger forum owned by Groupbuilders. It's a whole forum dedicated to Ruger owners and their love for those guns. How about joining up there. Be one of the grass roots members and help build this forum.

    One can never belong to too many firearms forums, right?

    I don't understand why a Moderator for a forum would want to suck members and activity out of it to a another site?:confused:

    Forums are a zero sum game. any activity that one gains is lost to the other.
    posts beget posts and posts lost to that other forum will never come back.
    On the contrary that other forums success will suck activity out of this one.


    A generalist site such as this one is particularly vulnerable to have its sub forums destroyed by people leaving to specialty forums.

    If I was the owner of this site I would be very concerned.

    Maybe for the same reason that preparedsociety is mentioned so often here. Owned and operated by the same admin.

    AND... Members there will likely refer to and mention members here, bringing more fresh meat for us to chew on...

    The owner of this site also owns that site. :cool:

    Also, is there some rule that you can only belong to one forum?

    I just checked and you are not registered under your user name here. We have 2300 registrations and haven't heard of any registration problems, but this is not to say we couldn't have a glitch or two to work out. Send me a PM here and I can help you out anyway possible.
