1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Had a quick hour out with Si (the robin) tonight to ease the HW100 in to the action.
    Well not long in to the session and Si spotted one so I crept in to a decent position and let the .20 go on its way. A reassuring smack came back and the rabbit gave a few kicks of the back legs and expired.
    First kill with the .20 and it did it clinically. After a slow wander and a chat about guns pellets and all things air gun we came across a group of bunnies again. I took one with a heart and lung shot as the head wasn't available, it ran about 5 yard and stopped. I thought it was just going to keel over so I crossed the stream and thought I'd have a look down the fence line thinking they'd of run off hearing the shot, to my shock there was still 4 sat out so I took my third and final rabbit of the night with a clean shot through the brain. On to the one I thought was going to keel over and it was still sat hunched over, strange I thought so I loaded the gun again and got the crosshairs on the side of his head but noticed it wasn't blinking or anything. No movement at all
    It had died hunched over sat up..........never seen this before.
    Upon getting back over the stream I could see Si coming back with rifle in 1 hand and rabbit in the other. Nice one mate first bunnie with the .25.
    Great hour out in great company with a true friend
    What can be better on a Saturday eve

    What a great hour, as always it's just great to meet up and to get out. It was my first outing with the scorpion SE .25 and yours too with the hw100 .20 which is a class unit (I'm a .20 fan boy).

    As always Bry showed his class dropping the first rabbit, I spotted it to the left of us and Bry was on it. Standing shot, no problem and first blood to the hw100 .20, we wandered a bit further and Bry spotted another one and we spilt up. I had seen some the other way, I followed the field round and was within range, wow .25 hits and the rabbit was just nailed stone cold, job done. When I got back to Bry he had three in the bag so the hw100 .20 is running sweet as a nut :up:

    What a sat night spent with a great mate and both rifles did there job as they should :D
