    Most of the forums are basically dead, no responses in six months or more in some cases. It would be awesome if GT could find some new mods to revive them.

    Kudos to Mas Ayoob for keeping the Self-Defense forum alive and well. His average response time is a few hours typically. Amazing! He is a class act.

    I think that's a good idea.

    Do we have any experts on the forum that would like to take up that roll? I will be asking what qualifies you as an expert.

    I think all the forums should be condensed into the Okie Corral, except for questions about Glocks :)

    The Self Defense GATE forum is the first one I go to when I log in. Kudos to Mas for the great job he does. Here's hoping we can find the same level of expertise and support for some of the others.

    I've basically given up on all but MA's GATE.

    Getting someone for High-Power/Long Range/Precision Rifle would be good. This is a primarily a pistol forum (and not a particularly accurate pistol at that), so I'm not sure how much activity (meaning just a few Q's now and then) there would be in a Precision Rifle GATE - so it might not take that much time for an SME.

    Also a (active) NFA/Title II SME/GATE would be good.

    Seems like there are a few forums here that could be pruned due to inactivity.

    Ayoob is awesome, btw.

    I'm an expert on eBay... Does that mean I can be a moderator???

    I have plenty of free time.

    Beretta, Sig, and HK forums come to mind. It's not that people don't talk about these guns, it's just that they typically do so in general firearms.
