Single action forum

Just curious and it really makes no difference to me at all. But why would someone feel the need to move my thread about my single action guns out of this section to the accessories section ???

Very simple …. your thread was about grips, which are accessories and belong in the accessories forum.

Well I thought is more about the guns than the grips, I made a separate post about the grips and their origin. I think there has been more chatter about grips in the single action section than what little was mentioned in my post. But hey this forum doesn't below to me....

I guess they sort of played a dirty trick on us!

We currently have about 40 different topic forums, not to mention the venders. I realize, sometimes it is difficult to figure out which forum is best for your thread, especially if there are more than one subjects involved and even more so for new members. It makes it much easier for members when topics and topic forums match so they don't have to check multiple places for things like grips, scopes, etc.

In this case, the title of the thread was "The finished grip project" and the content was mostly about grips. So, what do you think would be the most logical forum for this thread?

No Bob, it was not a dirty trick, just an effort to keep the forum easier to use.

Actually the topic was Red Mallee and Black Curly Maple that was in the single action section that was moved. I originally posted the above mentioned topic thread in the accessories section. No big deal....

Reminds me of when I used to work at the library.

Restoring hand carved antique decorative wood grips.

Does it go in firearms?

Does it go in wood working?

Does it go in antiques?

Does it go with historic preservation?

Someone carved a naked woman on one. Let's call it art. Otherwise someone will call it obscene and we'll have to get rid of the book. And so no one interested in carving wood grips ever checks it out.

Thanks Frontiersman, that's what I'm doing, historic preservation, and dreaming about naked woman and six guns.

Nitro I guess if you want to see the single action guns I posted about, you'l have to peck around and look in the Handgun Accessories Section under Red Mallee and Black Curly Maple. Unless I take a notion to be a turd and re-wright and re-post in this section.

I wish there was a happy medium …. seems people complain when sub-forums aren't specific enough and other complain if they are too specific. This Rugerforum started in 2006 and is pretty much the same today as it was then with exception of a few more sub-forums added at member's request. I doubt if you will see any significant changes in the future because most members are satisfied with the way it is set up.

It did take some annoying pecking around...Nice Grips and Revolvers.

No trouble finding the thread titled "Pachmayr Decelerator or Hogue Rubber"

about 11 threads down from this one..it's about Grips..Ugly Grips..except for the nice wood ones at the bottom of the page...

Back to welding..some nice stainless parts.

Threads often have two or more intersecting areas of interest and could be categorized in several forums. Sometimes moderators decide to move one to a different place because it seems to make more sense but this shouldn't be taken personally or viewed as the OP made a mistake. It's just routine housekeeping and if you start many threads you'll eventually get a few moved. I know I have. You could argue this thread itself doesn't belong here in the Single Action forum but rather it should be in the Feedback forum...
