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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Visiting Lincoln recently decided to pop in, can't say I enjoyed the experience. Asked very rudely to leave after about five minutes, as "I was only looking and he was busy". Shame really as the wife had spent several hundred pounds in an antiques shop the day before, so no groundwork required. Find something to buy, smile nicely, hand over cash, job done. Can't understand some people.

    Outstanding sales technique! Loss of a sale and a mention of his attitude on here to boot!
    Well done for sharing

    Amazing really ....
    surprising that he is still in business really ... I wonder if it was the shop owner or an employee ? May explain the attitude ?
    It really not so hard to engage with people .. Find out what they are interested in drop a gun in their hands just to get the feel of etc ... Tell them about any new gadgets etc
    I have to say I had a great experience recently at a shop the guy passed me guns I expressed a passing interest in pointed out their good points told me about a deal he was running on pellets
    I left the shot with close to £100 worth of pellets and some other bits I only popped in to kill a bit of time before meeting some friends ...

    still some will stay in business some won't we should only re visit shops that deserve our custom and money
    cheers

    I've never been but just up the road (13ish miles) is Kexby Fieldsports and he is the most patient and helpful guy I've had the pleasure of handing cash to!

    I even locked my keys, phone and wallet in the car (yep I'm a plonker) and he let me use his phone made me coffee and engaged in small talk until the AA broke in for me.

    Next time you are in the area take a leisurely drive out there.

    I mistakenly phoned his shop, thought I was getting in touch with the shop of the same name in Brum which has an excellent record.
    Tel conversation lasted only few seconds. Guy has a real attitude.

    Is that really true? I can't see the police allowing a shop owner to keep it's RFD license?

    I've heard from someone who was applying for an RFD license and got knocked back because he had a mere punch-up that on record (which was self defense) 15-20 years ago.
