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 all I got my rifle back today after a long 2 months wait as I brought my bsa supersport and took it to a shop to get the scope fitted and the shop said its illegal as it was shooting 14 1/2 ft lb so it was taken away but luckily a work colleague knows a gunsmith who picked it up stripped it and found the wrong gas ram in it so got me a new spring and made me some bits for the inside greased and rebuilt it for me very cheap !!

    im glad I took it to the shop so I wasn't using an illegal rifle, so today I had a play as its my first rifle not a great start but it won't knock me down I really enjoyed today even though I was practising my breathing etc

    Yep, lucky you did as without that rifle listed on FAC that would probably have got you into a whole world of trouble that you could do without :eek: thanks to our strict :rolleyes: laws on such things. Remember, we are ALL children and have to be treated as such at all times by those who know best :rolleyes:.

    If you didn't have a great start, I would suggest you don't do as I did and pick up incorrect spring air rifle shooting habits after 30 years away from the sport and google something like "How to shoot a spring air rifle properly", or have a look at this thread below. Hope that helps a bit :)

    EDIT: You'll have to copy/paste the link as it doesn't seem to be clickable for some reason sorry. That's never happened before? Oh well lol.

    Swapping a gas ram for a spring seems a bit backwards to me? Good news that you now have a legal rifle though :)

    I had no choice the gas ram what was in it was for a 177 and it was non adjustable so I could get the pressure backed off

    Your lucky you got if back at all RFDs by Law if the rifle is over can keep it and there is nothing the owner can do.
    Great result for you though.

    Im wondering what you did with the ram - you most likely would get £30 - £40 quid for that on here!

    No the Dealer does not get a Free Gun

    They have to advise local fire Arms Team who Collect it and make the decission if to prosecute the owner

    In Most cases offering destruction than a court Case

    The police would be very unlikely to prosecute anyone that had taken a gun to a gunshop because they were concerned it was over power. If you are trying to do the right thing and ate being responsible they have no need to take action.

    Some of you on here know this story please don't name the shop.
    A guy took a gun into a shop local to me it was overpower 16ftlbs. The shop wanted a lot of money to reduce the power of the gun or it would be turned over to the police. The man would not pay the price asked.
    The FLO removed the gun from the first shop and took it to another shop who agreed to reduce the power at a much cheaper price. No charges were made and the gun was returned to the owner.
    Don't be too concerned about taking your gun to a shop if you are worried.
    The police will see you are trying to do the right thing. Although it's a lot simpler to have your own chrono.
    Cheers Andy
