Title: Title of this section???
Post by: Gambo on January 21, 2012, 04:44:38 PM
I took a lot of heat off certain members of the Airgun BBS for titling this section 'Obsolete', as well as a few members of Planet Airgun.  :-[ :-[ :-\


In hindsight, maybe 'obsolete' is a bit cruel, as it might insinuate something that is no longer used, which is not what I meant.

In my defence, I deemed obsolete to be summat that is no longer made or sold.

So maybe 'Vintage' would have been a better title, but then you would not call an airgun that had it's production stopped last year as 'vintage' would you?

So should it be called the Collectors or Vintage section or whatever....or should it remain as 'Obsolete', now that I have explained my reasoning?


If anyone has any other input or suggestions...then please lets hear them.

Thanks.

Obsolete:

According to the oxford English Dictionary

adjective

1 no longer produced or used; out of date

verb

cause (a product or idea) to become obsolete by replacing it with something new


I think thats in line with what you have been thinking

So that would suggest that 'Obsolete' IS actually the CORRECT term, if you overlook the no longer used bit.


C'mon guys, I want to hear your thoughts, as I really enjoy the airguns of yesteryear, and love collecting and using 'em, and so I don't want to offend my fellow airgun collectors or enthusiasts with the title of this section.

Vintage or Collectors, probably more Collectors gets my vote.

How about "Golden oldies" allthough personaly I think you should ignore the politicaly correct bregade from another forum and run the Planet your way.

L Wesley used the term 'Obsolete' extensively in his Airguns and air pistols book, if it was good enough for him..... ;)

I would have thought that 'Collectable' guns would have to be out of production to be deemed 'collectable' otherwise you could justy go and buy it from the shop (where's the fun in that??- half the fun is in the hunt)  ;D

For what it's worth, I also came up with 'Blasts from the Past' but pigeonmenace beat me to it, Classics and Collectables is good too although sounds a little 'dusty'!
