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.

    I had another visit to the orchard this evening. It was a beautiful, warm day and there won't be many more this year.
    Anyroadup, I got the first rabbit with a standing shot as soon as I got there, it was at 34yds with me braced against a tree. Walking through the apple trees I spotted the squirrel, oblivious to everything as it went about it's search for buried goodies, it never found them.
    After about 1/2 an hour I sat down with my back resting against an old trunk and, as the light faded, I started to think about the working week ahead. Just then, two bunnies came out of a hedge bottom chasing each other like they were demented. They eventually settled down and began to feed so I lined up on the one at my zero range and dropped him with hardly a kick. His mate looked at him for a couple of seconds and, luckily for him, legged it back into the hedge.

    Well done Chris, I like the gun it looks like it would fit real nice with that CS stock.

    You did better than me at the weekend mate, I covered 360 acres with the lamp to get nothing:eek:, saw some deer though.:up:

    Thanks chaps.
    The gun's an absolute corker Elliot and, like you say, it fits a treat. I'm using it more than the KS at the moment.
    I'm thinking about doing a bit of lamping this winter, I did try it last year a bit but it was a bit spooky. I'll have to man up and give it another go.
    :)

    I don't do much to be fair Chris it was just because this land I drove to is a fair way and we got nothing in the afternoon, so took the lamps as a backup plan, but driving in the corn fields was quite loud as the corn was scraping the heck out of the underside of the motor as it was still quite long.

    So we saw a few rabbits but they didn't stop for the lamp, I drove always home and with such a frustrating night, I bobbed on my own patch, pulled in a gatehole and managed one in the corner of the field just to make me feel better, I hate to blank :D its getting tougher now to shoot anything on my shoots.

    With the pheasant season just about to start there are a lot of out of bounds areas I cant go, which is frustrating.

    But Im happy to watch and read about others now, I cant complain Ive had a brilliant summer with the mild weather everything has bred well.
