Sites with discussion groups related to weapons and tactics
http://tacticalforums.com - Contains numerous subforums usually related to various US armed forces and armed professions. This one is frequented by some heavy hitters in the tactical publications and training community. Several writers for SWAT magazine and people who run some of the more widely recognized training schools post there. This has a fairly active forum for executive bodyguards and higher end private security personnel. Note, skins and be thin and egos are big in this forum and most of the forum regulars feel well licensed to trash someone they don't like. They also generally have little regard or tolerance for those who are openly survivalist, although the information and subject matter discussed in several parts of tacforums is highly relevant. Some of the moderators and principal members at that site hate savvysurvivor.com and the writers here. Still, tacforums remains a source of valuable information in a number of related subjects.
http://www.sturmgewehr.com/ - This is where a lot of the people from Subguns.com ended up after Tom Bowers started charging money for people to post classified ads. This is a diverse website with forums and some very active classified ad boards.
