In stock Ammo deal sub forum in the WC

Similar to how the cyber security section is a sub forum of the Prepper section, it would be good to have an “in stock ammo” and other good gun deals section that is a sub forum of the WC. I know there’s a members only thread in the WC for in stock ammo now, but it’s a pain to see the deals with all the discussions going on at the same time.

A hidden sub forum for ammo deals would be good not just during panic times, but in normal times as well.

There is but it’s limited to IP and those with 24k+ posts.

The ammo thread in the WC is up to 1,000 pages, seems like that volume of posting justifies a sub forum

Then there will just be one more thread to check/add to. Nothing wrong with the existing one IMO. You think a new one won't include discussions, sidetracks, tangents, etc.?

I think it's a good idea but I suspect it would swiftly become cluttered with irrelevant posts

EVERY thread on MDS has to have 3% posts unrelated to the original. I'm guilty myself.

I don’t think you know the diff between a sub forum and a thread

OK, I reworded my post to reflect my intended point.

Not really an issue for me, just don't see the point in micro-dividing the forums. If a deal was found for a scope, light, gun, or whatever why not just start a new thread in the WC? IMO, the only things that would sustain interest and participation over time anyway would be ammo, reloading supplies, and maybe mags
