Yep. Sad... Where did everyone go? This used to be one of my preferred reading forums.

Perhaps seeing an endless stream of pro 2A and related political crap is discouraging for discussion of silencers? Or perhaps there is simply enough data here now that much further discussion and photo sharing isn't really necessary, as in it's all be done now, kinda over, as far as many visitors are concerned. Of course that's not really true. Developments do continue. But with various styles of baffle now so refined and efficient and with many just happy enough to buy flashlight or solvent trap kits online, the majority might not see further discussion as being relevant.

Things still trickle in the smithing portion of the board.

People started leaving when the site went under the google knife and stuff like the trading forum and some of the subforums were removed to comply with google ad driven oppression.

Censorship drove a lot of people away.

Slowed down a lot it seems. Maybe a dozen new posts per day average? 20 perhaps? Pretty dang slow, and mostly on news items many days, not silencer tech.

Even with the Google oppression, some other sites have done well enough. What's it going to take to bring more life back to this site in general, and to this KAC section of this site for that matter?

KAC's own blog went almost 3 years without an update and over half the announcements from 2014 were for tchotchke or happy holiday wishes.

If HPA passes it may breathe new life into the smithing forum.

Wow, glad to see a couple familiar names posting. I don't think I have posted here since 2014... haven't been regularly active for even longer. This place was in its glory days in 2007 2008,2009 KAC hooking people up here, AAC doing tattoos for free silencers. A lot of good memories of this forum.

I haven't followed enough and didn't realize they left.

I used to check the forum, regularly, but have lost interest since there doesn't seem to be much discussion of use, just purchases. I'll try and participate a bit more, though.
