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.

    'Behaviour

    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.'

  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 everyone, here´s my short introduction. Right now in the process of moving to Elgin, Moray from Berlin, Germany. Always been with airrifles, despite the nasty german laws. Thank . my wife is from Poland where I spent many holidays. Now I hope I´ll be able to get into all sorts of field sports here in scotland, especially into stalking rabbits. I read already that the shooting permission is obviously not an easy thing to get and it seems here in scotland air rifles are having a PR -problem. Anyways, great having found a place like this forum.
    Cheers, Sascha

    Thank you very much for the warm welcome, everyone, just awesome.

    To your question, Donki Oaty: in Germany, legal limit for air guns ist 7,5j which equals about 5,5 foot pounds. I own there still a modified Walther LGM2 matchrifle in .177 which is really a tack driver up to 25m (consistently hits an area of a pound coin). But you basically can´t shoot in your garden or anywhere, just in one of the many many clubs. But as these clubs are mostly very traditional, if you show up with a modified rifle, wanting to shoot with a scope and further as 10m they are not very happy. Air rifle clubs are basically only for training for competition shooting.
    On the other hand, there are some gun ranges in the broader Berlin area and in Poland where you can just go, pay some money for the amunition renting a gun and range time and you can shoot different guns up to 300m. Like that I shot lots of guns from .22 stuff up to WW1 G88, AK´s, handguns.
    At my families place in Poland I can set up a nice 50m long range in the garden and there I build myself 2 nice and highly modified crosmans in .22 with lots of parts from gmac and other custom stuff I could get my hands on. One is a pretty powerfull 2260 and the other based on the 2240 but with custom 19inch barrel and set up as a carbine with folding stock. Both very accurate considering the co2 and valve mods. Hope to get them over here one day, chrony them and have them around.
