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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Perhaps I expect too much but I bought a new air rifle 10 days ago from a dealer. Now I realise its much too heavy for me, I have only fired it 6 times and I asked if I could part exchange it for a more expensive but lighter rifle. They didnt want to know. Is that being a bit unreasonable.

    I dont want to do a name and shame thing. The gun was new at time of purchase and cost just under £200 the gun I wanted to px for was just under £400. They were just not interested. If you cant try out something before you buy I think after 10 days or so with little use still boxed its abit much.

    This is where the "try before you buy" help from other members of a club is handy.

    That way you can get a good feel of a gun before you commit yourself.

    That is very poor then. I can understand them not wanting to give you the value you paid off of another gun.
    But to refuse any px for an existing customer in these circumstances is poor in my view.

    Try another dealer,as asked what rifle is it & which would you like.
    For example if it was a HW99 then you would get over half price for it.

    Not sure re gun dealers but we bought a TV very large ,watched it 2 days we all had head ache or migraine .
    i phoned shop told him he said give it a few days longer reduce screen brightness if no good no problem please return it ,that's service .
    It cost more than 2 k too.
    I think if it's unmarked theirs nothing stopping them cleaning it and back in the rack .
    Its not like it happens with too many sales ,poor service or not I'm sure they could have helped more .

    Lets just keep this as a general discussion as I said I dont want to go into too much detail and upset anyone. As I said if you spend alot of money for something is it unreasonable to expect abit of understanding if you find its not for you. Yes I could sell the gun privatly I suppose I just expected a bit more.

    To be honest if they are not playing ball I'd sell it privately and buy what you want elsewhere. At least you'll still have your dignity! Move on and putit behind you. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    edit, see if you can chop it in elsewhere?
