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:


    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.

Getting back into air rifles.

    I used to hunt fairly regularly with my fathers Webley Tempest but after moving to Shetland I never got round to buying a rifle for myself.
    I now have access to a lot of 'rabbit rich' land and have asked to do some pest control for the local farmer. As such I'll need to buy a rifle, which is where you guys come in! :)

    I have around £200 to spend on a hunting setup (don't want to spend too much until I get back into it properly - also my wife won't take the clamp off my wallet!!)

    I have been looking at the Remington Genesis and Gamo Vipermax with 3-9x40 scopes as these are sitting around the correct price and look to be reasonable rifles.

    Obviously up here in the far North wind is a big factor so .22 would be advisable. What rifle would you guys choose and would you pick an alternative type of scope? Also gun retailers are very limited up here so was going to buy online. Any suggestions of retailer?

    Thank you very much for your time and advice in advance!

    Whatever you go for the scope must be able to take the recoil, many cheep scopes won't hold zero for long on a springer.
    If the scope has the lifetime guarantee then you can always send it back for a fix or replacement.
    I have had a few scopes shake to bits and they were supposed to be springer rated, that said i had them on gasram guns and they tend to be a little more harsh on scopes.
    Blackpool air rifles will give you good honest advise, ask if the scope has limited lifetime warranty.

    pellpax are good, they do go out of their way to help, JSR are good as well, uttings not bad but delivery is extra and can be expensive on small stuff.

    Best bet would be to look for a secondhand TX200 or BSA XL etc on the forums..
