    Official "Most useful posts" thread .

    For everyone that is not A1A, finding the most useful posts is not always the easiest thing.

    It'd be nice to have a single thread the listed a good set of useful posts for people to start from. Plus it will help prevent the forgetful from missing something that they "should already know."

    So if you have particular favorites please post them here! Good heuristics: anything you've mailed to a friend, or bookmarked in your browser.

    I'll cheat by just listing out a tiny subset of very useful dfariswheel posts:

    If you can find them, I'd probably add some threads on shooting issues, what loads for different vintage guns and black powder vs. modern frame issues. Threads on valuations might be useful too.
