As far as TTAG’s concerned, the more gun-related conversation and presence on these here internets, the better. Everyone’s welcome, the water’s fine so hop on in. As such, we certainly welcome Charlie Pratt’s new firearms-related “social networking” site, gunway.com. The goal, as foxcharlotte.com reports: “to connect and grow the firearm community in a way that Facebook and Twitter can’t, says Pratt. ‘There were people who wanted to connect and there was no way to do it…'”
No way to do it? Really? Maybe Pratt and his partners aren’t aware of sights like thefiringline.com, thefirearmsforum.com and plenty more like ’em. Perhaps they haven’t developed the mad Google-fu skillz to unearth the more focused, special interest communities out there like glocktalk.com, ktog.com, pistol-forum.com, shotgunworld.com, ar15.com, hunting.net, sniperrifle.org trapshooters.com and too many more to even scratch the surface here.
It’s great that Gunway’s made its electronic debut and all. But from a quick perusal, it’s hard to see what unmet need it meets or unfilled niche it fills. Then again, it’s new. There could be all kinds of mahvelous innovations in the works. Maybe Pratt’s middle name is really Zuckerberg and Gunway will be the next big gun thingy. Whatever. More gun talk and info is always a good thing, so welcome to the conversation.
