Forum for Old and/or Collectible Firearms?

I was wondering about the possibility of creating a new forum aimed specifically at old and/or collectible firearms? I see there is a forum for traditional type muzzleloaders: flintlocks, cap 'n ball, etc. However, looking at most of the posts, this forum appears mostly for the posing and answering of technical, hunting related, etc. type questions. It also doesn't include older cartridge guns, etc. Just a thought.

You may want to re-post this in the "Good Ol Days" forum under "Traditional Muzzleloaders".

How about a forum for some of us air gunners? I shoot just about anything. I have 14 tree rats, 4 bunnies and 2 coons with a Benjamin Trail NP .22 air gun. 850fps with a 18g pellet. I own or have owned everything from a .17rem to .416 Rigby. these air guns are fun stuff !!Good way to get the kids into shooting. Any takers?? Some will say that there is enough airgun forums, but I say, Hunting is hunting. Doesn't matter if you do it with a .17 cal airgun or a .416 Rigby. I have a couple of airguns that will put some of my powder burners to shame. After all, is this "Hunt" Chat!!! All the best to everyone! This post might get moved but that's OK. Put it where the people will see it.

There are a lot of classic type firearms out there. I'm one that my taste in firearms runs to the older firearms. A lot of them that I shoot are from the 30s, 40s, and 50s, as I like the way they were manufacture.
