    Not yet. We have a few security issues to get behind us, and then will proceed. Stay tuned.

    Perhaps it would also be beneficial to solicit reviews from the general membership of the forum. I would think that with the vast numbers of products being bought and used by the SHTF community, a wide range of products could be reviewed, the focus of which would obviously be prepping.

    Now with that said, many online forums that have a forum dedicated for reviews tend to have problems with a "signal-to-noise" ratio that is set too low. That is, many reviews are posted by enthusiastic members who should have perhaps spent a little more time honing and polishing the final product.

    In order to ensure that the quality of the product review section was maintained, a forum moderator could serve as a filter of sorts. A member who wished to submit a review of a product would conduct the test and complete the written review. He/she would then submit it to the moderator for final review. The moderator would look it over to ensure that no egregious spelling or grammatical errors exist and to ensure that the review makes sense (it follows a clear train of thought). The moderator would NOT be there to change the opinions of the author but simply to assure that the author is communicating their opinion effectively.

    Once the author completed any necessary editing (if needed), the moderator would post the review, giving credit to the author as the source of the review. As such, only the moderator would be able to post in the forum, but all members would be able to submit reviews to the forum.

    Unfortunately, this could result in some people getting their feelings hurt. For example, their review, "I bought a used leatherman off craigslist. I like it," ends up being rejected and they get upset over it. The overall quality of the review section would be much better for it though.

    Honestly, it seems like the majority of the members here are able to communicate a complete thought though so I'd imagine that the majority of the editing would be due to spelling and grammar issues. These tend to be easy fixes though so I can't imagine too many people getting their feathers in a ruffle over it.

    The end result would be a product review forum that maintains a high level of quality while giving the membership the opportunity to see a wide range of products reviewed from a variety of viewpoints. It seems to me that this is a win-win situation.

    Let's get rid of the bug, and then we start. I felt it...

    Hi, MOlivo,

    I have just gotten a Kindle e-book up on Amazon.

    The title is The 15-Minute Shotgun, by S.W. Smith

    It explains in detail how to make a slamfire shotgun for less than $10.00 and in less than 15 minutes.

    I would very much like to have it reviewed.

    The slamfire shotgun is the only legal shotgun than will fit in a pack or gym bag (as in BOB) without being obvious.

    And, of course it's good for subsistence hunting as well as self-defense in a SHTF situation.

    There is some good stuff in the book related to safety that is original and not available anywhere on the web.

    The book is $2.99 on Amazon, but if you would be willing to review it, I would be happy to send you a free .pdf .

    Please let me know what you think about this,



    Thanks much,

    UncleMorgan
