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.

    Hello Guys

    I need a little bit more advice from you if you don`t mind.

    OK,I want to send my FAC back after the weekend to change the 7.5mm rifle variation that is unused over to FAC Air Rifle,I am intending to buy a Theoben Eliminator.

    In the covering letter that I send to the Firearms Dept will I need to state mechanism type (break barrel) and calibre,such as .22 or just apply for an FAC Air rifle Variation?

    Will I also need to mention pellet amounts like you do with live ammunition?

    Thanks for your help.

    Just specify it as FAC Air, no mechanism or power required :) If however the force is being picky and require a calibre then just amend and ping it back over!

    Edit: No pellet amounts required

    As above but some forces will and some wont insist on stating the caliber, if you know what caliber you want then just state for example - .22 FAC Air & don't forget the suppressor as an FAC air rifle suppressor requires a slot just like a rimfire/centerfire one

    OMG..I forgot about the sound moderator/suppressor,good job you mentioned it,I forgot that Eliminators have them.Thats going to cost £26 for an extra variation.:mad:

    Yeah,I suppose it would be best if I was to mention calibre from the start rather than get it all sent back to me after a 3 month wait (for nothing).

    Will be looking for a used Eliminator and most of them seem to be in .22 so that would probably be the best one to put down.

    Thanks Buddy.:up:

    Ok Mate,will put calibre down from the start,don`t want it coming back.

    Yeah,good thing about not stating mechanism type is I will be able to change my mind at the last minute like I normally do and go for a PCP instead.LOL.

    Thanks Buddy.
