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.

    Sounds good to me. Im not a fan on air arms, i have had an s410 TDR .22, S410k .177 and S510 TDR .22 but cant seem to bond with them. Im hoping that the budget s200 has enough character to win me over. After the £1000's ive spent on rifles, my favourite pcp is still probably the mmc bsa ultra, fingers crossed the s200 has the same effect.

    Always liked the S200 - I still recommend it often as a great starter option that you never need to 'progress' away from. Easy to add multishot as an option, light, quiet, good enough shot count to be useful, usually bomb proof, I really rate them. Wish I still had mine :(

    Like I need another gun...

    :rolleyes:

    Good luck with the calibre change - anyone care to place bets on how long it takes for you to switch back to .22 ;)

    Epic offer, but please don't tempt me :)

    I'm collecting my FAC Rapid later this week so you can probably guess which toy I will be fooling with...

    I'm up to me ears in guns at the moment - after clearing loads out I am back to 7 self contained air rifles, 2 (soon to be 3) PCPs, plus the cannons :rolleyes:

    To be honest I am mainly using the rimfire at the moment due to some of my shoots being very sketchy, with super-cautious bunnies.

    Rather than buy any more (famous last words) I am going to adopt a 'one in, one out' approach otherwise I won't have anywhere to store the little beggars :)

    If I shift one of my current PCPs on I may dabble in another S200 - they're a great gun and I'd certainly have another one.

    Thanks again :)

    XTX does a good job.
    From the point of view of changing the bore, I would have sold the .22 and waited for a .177 to come up. This would be the normal way and also should be the cheaper option.
