Fidonet GUNS_N_SUCH Echo Rules
Updated on 12 July 2020
Moderator : Mike Powell (1:2320/105)
GUNS_N_SUCH is an echo for gun enthusiasts to discuss their mutual hobby
in a safe, friendly environment. This echo originates in Zone 1 in the
United States and will focus on the freedoms of gun ownership as well
as the rules and regulations on guns in the United States.
However, international gun enthusiasts are welcomed also.
All weapons that could be considered a "gun", such as pistols, long
rifles, shotguns, black powder pistols and rifles, and even heavy
artillery are on-topic here.
The use of guns in hunting is considered on-topic also.
WHAT IS NOT ON-TOPIC: Any subject related to guns that could be
considered as politically sensitive such as gun control. This
echo is for the enjoyment of guns and the hobby of gun ownership,
gunsmithing, and gun sports. Please take all political discussions
to one of the echos dedicated to political discussions.
