    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.

    Hi guys,

    I was just wondering what everyones opinions were on firing FAC air rifles into trees.

    I keep hearing pretty different opinions on this, the main one is that .22 fac air is generally okay if you're sensible and know whats in the direction where your pellet will land.

    It gets a bit more interesting when you throw in .25 air and .30 100ft/lb rifles.


    Thanks for reading and look forward to reading your responses.

    Its all about being sensible.a .22 running 35lb will probably only go 2-300yds max before it hits the ground pending the angle.if you've 2 mile of fields behind the tree shoot away.dont use a LR though.

    Whats your opinion on a .25? Main reason I'm asking is I'm planning on adding an FAC air to the cabinet, I currently have a slot for a .25 but I'm thinking of switching it to a .22 because the main use for it will be shooting into trees.
    Don't worry wouldn't dream of using the .22lr, I have a perpetual heart attack for about a week after whenever it ricochets.

    Fac air is perfectfor shooting in to trees once the pellet runs out of steam it will simply drop to the ground .25 is Perfect fac air imo and would rate it over most rimfire guns myself my pal has a .25 cricket on ticket and his bag at end of the day as caused big argument over on the theoben forum as lads cant understand how he gets such big bags to tne point they claim hes cheating (huntting league) and using deeks and shottys

    .25 crickets are very very hard to come by mate we had to import ares if im truly honest id go the edgun route as the kalibrgun cricket fiasco as been nothing but bull Censored from the very begining there great guns one the best ive owned but tne politics and arguments that me with them as been very very off putting cheshire gun rooms ave just taken a delivery of them tho as there the new uk supplier after the last sold a batch of faulty guns hth dave


    Ps a rapid in .25 takes some beating also mate and half the price of a cricket or edgun

    What happened with the cricket guns just out of interest? Was most of the trouble with faulty ones being imported or was something else going on?
    I've been looking at some very nice rapids .25 on the owners club but they only come up for sale once in a blue moon :p
