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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

Ammo crisis in the States...going on year two now

    Now I can find most anything but .22 rimfire :mad:

    Last week I went into a local shop and saw to my amazement boxes of .22! so I purchased three
    boxes each containing 333 rounds "Winchester". They allow only one box per customer so I was
    lucky enough to send in some friends to get a box. I paid $15 dollars a box.

    Now why is this a big deal? About six months ago if I had been to a gun show I could expect to
    pay $60 or up to $80 for the same box. Normal price should be about 5 cents a round..but there
    has been a .22 shortage going on for like 2 years now and if you buy any ammo online it costs
    a small fortune.

    Thank goodness it has not effected any pellet prices here "yet" maybe if the price keeps going
    up on ammo people might start shooting more air guns here.

    Going to stock up on pellets just in case.

    Now I have 1,000 rounds of .22 rimfire and I'm afraid to shoot it because I might not find anymore :D

    I knew you'd had a .22 rimfire shortage over there but I didn't know it was still going on. Only problem over here is finding the right make for your gun as my Anni 1417 likes Ely but nobody stocks it locally and we can't buy it on line as the RFD has to see and sign our FAC licence. Luckily my local RFD's do stock Winchester which my gun also likes but we still pay anything from 8p (13 cents) to 10p (16 cents) a round so your ammo is still very cheap over there.

    Hmm that sucks, I don't have a FAC just air rifles but I did watch/read about the 22 shortages and Walmart vids online with people waiting for delivery of ammo which was a while back! I'd expected it was all back to normal by now with there being such a high demand!

    Hey if no changes are made just search for your nearest doomsday prepper! They favour .22 guns for the mass abundance of ammo "well not so mass abundance now" and sock pile as much ammo as they can buy all year round! Maybe they will become the black market dealers of .22 ammo lol

    I've heard of people in the States buying massive quantise of 22 LR, one chap had over 1 million rounds stashed away for the Zombie invasion! :eek:
    much of this has to do with panic buying and hoarders - classic case of supply and demand / raised prices.
    Quite a few greedy individuals adding to the problem by buying in bulk then selling it on for high profits.
    People need to think calmly....
