I haven't done one in a while, and we've picked up some new blood. I'd like to know what you guys think we can improve on, and also some ideas for the forum.

Some questions to get you started:

What do you like?

What do you want to see more of?

What do you want to see less of?

If you could change one thing what would it be, and why?

What can we do to attract more members?

Thanks!

Maybe a "general discussion" forum along with a "gunsmithing" or "do it yourself" forum. Also, a military guns forum would be good.

As you are already aware, most other successful guns forums specialize in one particular type of gun, thus they draw a crowd that has interest in that type of gun. This forum is all about general discussions on the 3 major types of guns, rifles, pistol and shotguns. I know that you are in search of an identity for this group, but right at this minute I can't think of much else to help steer its identity in one direction or the other. But I will keep pondering this issue and let you know if I can come up with any more specific ideas.
Thanks for your time, effort and funding to provide this site. Good to have something for us Texans.

I also like the idea of a "how to/DIY" section. I have to say though, I am a big fan of this forum and I check it almost daily!

I like the fact that there are TEXAN shooters that i can ask my questions about legislation in our great state. i have gotten some good answers on CCW and legal car carry.

I also like the idea of DIY/ how to section. maybe a place for pics of handguns, rifles, NFA, shotguns, etc.

I do like the fact that you're interested in member feedback. I'm really new here (spend a lot of time on the SIGforum) and really haven't found anything to gripe about.

I like the fact that it's a 'Texas' forum and hope it'll be a way to meet shooters in my area (when I decide just where that is).

Thanks.

We have an existing Gunsmithing forum: http://www.texasguntalk.com/forums/gunsmithing/

I like to think our niche is Texas. We really can't focus on a particular set group of firearms because everyone is so diverse. Our strong-point is pistols, but you'll find a million different choices in there.

I'll rename the "Others" into "General Firearms".

I'm going to go ahead and add "How-Tos" to the name on the Articles section. The Articles section basically is going to be the reference section for things of that nature. If people need help they have the various forums (pistol, rifle, etc.) to start a new thread in.

Pictures can be posted in any of the applicable forums.

Ie. You want to post pictures of your new Wilson 1911.

Go to Pistols --> Start New Thread --> Title: "Pictures of my Wilson Combat Full-Size"

Some of the forums have picture threads stickied at the top as well.

I enjoy this site much in part because it's made in Texas, I would like to see a political section although they can get nasty at times.
