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.

    I recently sold my Heritage for a good price and saw a nice EELL Beretta I liked, so I bought it, not cheap and not new but I liked it so that was that.

    Shot it this morning on a testy sporting layout expecting it not to fit great as the lad I bought it from said he was a good shot but couldn't get on with it.

    Anyway I shot a 45/50 which I was more than happy with as I think I will improve on that in time that was using just 21grm loads, and its a very slender quick gun very well balanced.


    So first time out is always the mustard cutter and I was well chuffed, I had to do a few little jobs on the gun last night, but all it all, it shot great Im very happy with it.:up:

    Thanks lads.

    No mate I sold the browning at a price I couldn't refuse, but I think this Beretta shoots better for me, although I shot the same score with both first time out.

    The only issue with the browning was it weighed about 8 ibs so it was a lump of a gun, and me being less balanced than the majority of individuals I just wanted a lighter gun.

    This one is a game gun not a sporter so its much quicker in the hands and points so nicely it made easy work of the majority of clays this morning, powdered most of them under 40yrds in fact, so it must pattern well, but then again what beretta doesn't.:up:

    Still got my browning semi auto Paul, I think I will be keeping that now as I shoot pigeons and crows with that every week so Im used to that now, what surprised me is how similar dimentions this and the browning auto are, probably why there were no nasty surprises this morning on the clay ground.

    All it all Im happy with the swap of OU's no regrets.

    Thanks lads I like it, lts a pretty gun.

    Some say to me why bother when a £150 Baikal will do the same?

    At that point I always go on an old gunmaking film my mate showed me at his house.

    It talks about "Art for Arts sake" and talks about why guns or weapons of any kind were made 100s of years ago using thinks like carved Ivory inlay placed in the wood, and fantastic detailed scroll work and gold inlay put into black power flint lock pistols.

    Its a bit like saying why buy a ferarri when a mini van will get you from A to B just the same.

    I say why not?

    If it gives you ownership pleasure and fun I say do it, as there are more flavours than vanilla to life.:D
