Welcome to The Firing Range, a tactical friendship rodeo inhabited by tender friendly Rambos! Maybe you're here for the first time and wondering what all these weirdly named threads are. Maybe you're an old timer who just wants to know why you can't find the lava hockey megathread after some dingus changed its title for the third time this month. To help you find your way around, we've compiled a list of TFR's star attractions and hidden gems. (Warning: hidden gems may be escaping convicts.)

Found a broken link? Found a thread we missed? Drop me a note or post it in monthly chat.

Essential Resources

Newbie Questions - We all have to start somewhere, and that somewhere is here.
General Questions - For when you have a query that doesn't need its own thread.
Mental Health - Wanting to talk about depression, anxiety, or PTSD does not make you a lesser person.
LGBT+ Affairs - The firearms community tends to be a hostile place for non-straight, non-cis people. In TFR we aim higher.
Buying, Selling & Trading - Actual buying and selling isn't allowed on TFR anymore, but there's an affiliated group for that stuff.
Pay It Forward - Giving away stuff you don't need any more.

M1911 Megathread - The gun in the Freep emote.
Milsurp Megathread - From matchlocks to Mausers, this is the place for old guns.
Pistol Caliber Carbines - The Colt 635 looks cool but is actually bad.
Revolver Megathread - Like a record baby, round round round round.
Shotgun Megathread - Short stroking isn't a euphemism.
SIG-Sauer Megathread - Swiss guns. They probably run on watch springs or something.

Accessories & Techniques

Concealed Carry - Carrying a gun is like wearing a seatbelt: better to have and not need than need and not have.
Optics Megathread - I can't shoot the bugger if I can't bloody well see him, can I?
Gear Megathread - Holsters, magazine pouches, vests, etc.
Body Armor Megathread - If Plan A is to take multiple .338 shots to the back, you really need to come up with a Plan B.
