I forget how I found this site, but I was actively searching for an Alabama based gun forum, so I would have found this eventually. When I lived in Virginia I was on a state based forum (still am) that had a wildly active for sale area, and that momentum carried into other parts of the forum in spurts.
A contest might bring short term activity, but what you want is longer term activity. Seems like there are some good people here, but just don't have a lot to talk about. The contest is good to bring people in, now you need the magic to make them stay.
Maybe you need a good MOA scope vs. MIL scope argument to get started opposing ideas always bring a lot of comments.
