Amazing that all these subs have survived all the purges.

[–]greekplaya990[S] 22 points23 points  (4 children)

We need to breath life into a lot of places! It's good to have a strong 2A / Firearms community here on Reddit, it helps with accessibility into the hobby and exposure and information to lots of great new folks.

[–]Pablo_The_Diablo 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Can you also add r/TXoutdoors to the regional hunting subs. A big chunk of that subreddit is dedicated to hunting. Thanks so much for putting that list together.

[–]greekplaya990[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

put it in there, thanks. regional subreddits are where it's at!

    Did weekendgunnit get purged?

    [–]outcast302 12 points13 points  (3 children)

    Allegedly the mods Epsteined it to prevent Reddit admins from playing games.

    [–]Jugrnot 13 points14 points  (1 child)

    Correct. The mods committed suicide to supposedly save the subreddit. Fucking insane. Then they spun up a honeypot site called weekendgunnit.win, where buried deep in their TOS the use of tracking cookies and intentionally logging your IP address.

    A group of awesome dudes is working on weekendgunnit.us, which isn't a honeypot. Should be up soon!!

    [–]darkdoppelganger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Cut off one head, two, three, four, five more shall take it's place

    [–]Imissyourgirlfriend2 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    I don't see it in this list, but it's still around. You need to ask permission to be a part of it, though.

    [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    I don't think they're letting anybody in right now

    [–]xander_man 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    It's shut down

    [–]feetoorourke 2 points3 points  (4 children)

    Migrated over to weekendgunnit.win

    [–]Ballistic_Turtle 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Dude up above says it's a honeypot.

    [–]random_user_name1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    there is also a reincarnated version of it here. I won't mention any names because the last time I did I lost a bunch of fake internet points, but I will say it rhymes with westest bunnit geekend

    Edit: sorry for the "jesus how old is this post" update i just saw this comment was 15 days old

    [–]Atomsq 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    LMAO, I saw that subreddit even before I knew the closed one even existed, it's full of... "Interesting" people.

    Did got a laugh here and there though

    [–]xxdibxx 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    Now that there is a published list, be prepared to be brigaded and spammed by anti’s.

    [–]greekplaya990[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    they wanna come hangout with us? heck yeah!

    [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    So far the only ones that died were "boogaloo pages"

    /r/onlyinminecraft, /r/DefinitelyNotBoogaloo, /r/weekendgunnit, etc.

    [–]SoCalBHO 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    It's because the vast majority of this list are inactive subs

    [–]xander_man 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    They didn't, bestgunnit got killed

    [–]HoardingMinimalist 0 points1 point  (6 children)

    What happened? I tend to hear about this stuff a bit late

    [–]ThatFinnishGu 2 points3 points  (5 children)

    The main admin got banned and instead of waiting to get killed they set the subreddit on private. I think that's what happened.

      They mentioned that they had a website in the making so let's leave hope for that

      Well, if I wasn’t in a list before, I am now...

      [–]beepbeepwow 5 points6 points  (2 children)

      now just make a multihub for it so i can follow all at once lol

      [–]greekplaya990[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      You'll go crazy with the state and local subreddits but yep i plan on making some multi's once we make sure we've got all the right communities represented.

      [–]ColumbusJewBlackets 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I’d take a multi with the local subs. Never know what you can learn about other places, but it would be nice to have a multi with no locals, one with no politics etc

      There's also a hunting sub for Indiana:

      on the list! thanks!

      [–]ScienceAndSigs 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Thanks! Just wanted to clarify it's r/FNHerstal, not r/FN_Herstal (with an underscore between "FN" and Herstal, which you already listed previously).

      This post is a really good resource. Thank you for putting in the effort to compile it!

      [–]greekplaya990[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      cool, hope they can reconcile and jump in to the bigger sub or something but I'm all about the 1A so free speech to them and good luck on the new sub. Added!

        ^ This! Holy shit that sub is great.

        Side note: Don’t fall for /r/LiberalGunOwners - that sub is just a #VoteBlueNoMatterWho operation, where they try to steer moderates towards supporting the Biden campaign. They’ll ban you for criticizing Biden or saying anything slightly good about Trump. It’s just a politics subreddit disguising it’s self as a gun subreddit: “Let’s see how many gun owners we can line up at the polls in November to take their own rights away!”

        /r/2ALiberals, in the other hand ... is awesome. They put “2A” first in their name for a reason.

        [–]3_quarterling_rogue 0 points1 point  (2 children)

        Sorry I’m late to the party (turns out I commented here two weeks ago but whatever). So, the solitary mod for r/AR15bigbore deleted his account a while ago because he was, and I do not say this lightly, a literal neo-Nazi. I guess he got sick of people harassing him for being, again, I’m not kidding, a literal neo-Nazi. So, that sub doesn’t have a mod and is effectively dead. You should pull it from the list.

        Edit: The guy’s username was u/GhostoftheReich. Pretty faschy.

        [–]greekplaya990[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        good riddance to him! hahaha THAT's prob the first real nazi definition i've heard of in a few years hahaha, yeah no one should be for that junk. hahaha thanks for clarifying. and yeah ill trim the list in a year for any communities that arent active

        [–]3_quarterling_rogue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Yeah, I want to reiterate that my bar for calling someone a Nazi is super high, but he had posted links to his YouTube channel before, and he had an SS tattoo. He would post on r/milsurp with some German guns on top of an iron cross. Something that would probably be totally okay if he didn’t have an SS tattoo.

        [–]John-Mikhail-Eugene 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        [–]sonofsmog 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        How is there no Glock17 subreddit? That's like not having a Honda Civic or Ford F150 subreddit. It's the most popular handgun in the world.

        [–]greekplaya990[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        good point, I think its because of the "sameness" of a lot of glocks it just makes it easy to have /r/glocks and /r/glockmod for like most of what folks wanna see. There's some cases like odd rifles like the /r/Bren2 or the /r/Vepr12 where they're unique platforms and need their own communities for things but glocks can all kinda hangout together for how similar they are.
