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.

    Im completely new to the sport and currently in the market for my first airgun, however fully intend on joining the local riffle range in the near future and no doubt i'd get my answer then, however I was currently in a debate with a member of the family about .22 firearms arms being legal without a FAC...this true??

    You haven't specified if its an air rifle,only a "firearm"


    A .22 Firearm could be air rifle or .22lr etc.Are we talking about an air rifle with a muzzle energy below sub 12 ftlbs? if so,it's legal.

    Well the old man was referring to some (not air powered) .22's are legal without a licence but I was under the impression that all firearms have to have a licence of some kind?

    Some people can be in possession of a .22 Rimfire bullet rifle without holding an fac.

    They are:

    Crown servants in connection with their duty. ( often cadet instructors, cadets)

    Members of the showmans guild who operate mobile .22 lr rifle ranges at fairs etc.

    Visiting armed forces from other country's

    Visitors to the country who have a permit.

    People given a temporary permit by the police because of a death or other instant need to legally hold the rifle.
    Cheers Andy
