    Just wondering about a closed thread?

    I started a thread about long distance shooting because people on here give good advise and not just tell you to buy a different gun or something unhelpful like that. It got closed and I was wondering, why? It seemed g rated and it was in the pay to play area. Any help with this would be great. Thanks. Mike

    The rule was not in effect when you opened the thread. It went into effect after you opened it. But according to the post referenced it was not directly influenced by any current post. So its not a personal reaction. Just the luck of the draw.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    This is true.
    It was nothing more than bad timing that your thread was active when the rule changed.

    Shoot me a PM if you like and we can move to email. I am pretty involved in the sport and would try to help.

    I got to say, I find it funny that bow hunting and knife threads don't get closed but shooting paper is a big deal. I'm not whining, rules are rules but I think the PC movement is a bad thing.

    I think its less about Political Correctness and more about keeping the Politics off of the forums. Firearms seemed to always polarize people and many of the threads would degrade into a pro/anti gun discussion.

    Not what the forums are geared towards.
