Here is my idea, keep the general firearms section of the forum open to the public, similar to a noob proving ground, then have another area for people with say over 100 posts or similar. This area would be for those who are friends, in a manner of speaking. I suggest this because this is a small tight community and socializing is fun with people whom you get along with. this also keeps random people from finding out a little too much info about the members i.e. i know that one of the members is moving to Tuscon, and that about 5-6 members myself included live in AZ. This isn't super important info but its info that isn't needed for the general public. It still allows us to talk about hi points but it also allows us to be social. what do you guys think?
