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.

    me and my mate get loads out of his 3ltr 300 bar i have a huntsman and he has a airwolf. a 3ltr bottle is easyer to carry around (if you take it out with you) or easyer to store out of the way

    Hopefully getting my Huntsman Sunday (if they've got them in yet) and I've gone for the 300 Bar 3 ltr bottle which should be good for 15+ top ups. My local dive shop is only 5 mins up the road so filling it it not going to be a problem though. I guess if you've got a long way to get it filled then bigger would be better!

    If he wants a 3 litre let him have a damned 3 litre. We have 2 x 3 litre bottles. We get about 15 fills on the HW100s, the 232 bar Super 10 does take a bit more, but there again you get more shots per fill. A 3 litre will keep him happy! We have 2 so that if one runs low (ie will not top to 230 bar, we can use it for 200 bar), once it gets to 190 bar it goes for refill, so we never run out of air as then we use the other bottle until we get the refilled one back!

    me and my bro ended up going halfs on a 12 litre, the costs difference of a new bottles was about 30 quid compared to smaller ones, but then we are an hour n half round trip to get it filled up, but then again if plinking at home bottle is with us, if out hunting we get a good 60 shots from each rifle, so no chance of running out of air on either rifle .... * wishes there was 120 kamikaze bunnies so we could have a try though * ;-)

    Going on my own experience when I started shooting I purchased a 3ltr bottle but soon regretted and upgraded to a 12ltr which is kept in my garage the ideal l would be to have both and keep the small one in the boot it's all about money

    PUMP! A Hills pump for topping up. Saves having ANOTHER gurt lump to find a home for. Never have to pay to get it filled either. I don't know about you lot, but we have loads of air about the place at home - and it is free and we don't have to even go 5 minutes up the road for it. I would say, I am careful about changing the moisture trap granules regularly, but they are cheap enough. I LIKE pumping too. I haven't had to do it from empty, which might be a different matter, but for top ups, it takes no time and very little effort (effort that I NEED, otherwise I shall have to buy all new trousers:D)

    Tried a bottle, gone back to the pump. Only lazy oiks use a bottle.:D

    What about 7ltr? I notice some guys have both 3ltr for portability (top-ups) and 12ltr kept at home. I have 7ltr and it suits me sir.

    If you need to take a 12ltr tank on a shooting trip with you then you would just secure it in the boot of your car and use it as and when required.
