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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Well Ive been in the garage most of the day sanding and old hw35 stock down (35yrs worth of finish took some shifting)[​IMG] so I decided to swap the smell of white spirit for fresh air for an hour tonight.

    I got my rapid to back, so wanted to check it was right, anyway got to the farm and just stayed around the yard and little rabbits bolted here and there, but I had a zero on a drystone wall first about 30 yrds, and aiming for the same spot the gun put three shots on top of each other, but 2" to the right because of a strong cross wind.

    So after a few little uns in the scope, and the feeling of overwhelming guilt I didn't pull the trigger, so I left them for another day, until I crossed a gate hole on the way back to the car and saw an adult rabbit on the edge of some cut corn, trouble is it was a good 40 yrds and ontop of the highest point of my shoot and the wind was really getting up, but I got a nice solid rest on the gate post so gave it a full 4" to the left, pointing into thin air, and slipped the trigger.

    I heard no impact with the wind but the rabbit slumped, so much so it still had the corn in its mouth as I picked it, sign of a clean kill.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Clouds were coming at this point real fast over the village so went back to the car, thought the Rapid is ok.

    But I just happened to have a look in the last gate hole as I passed as I shot one the other day and a few seem to be appearing down there, so I whipped in engine running window down and did almost the exact same shot as I did last week, like a replay.

    The shot was an in one eye out of the other type but the kill was instant, and when I paced it a good 45yrds.[​IMG]

    Then is was back home for a warm, first time Ive felt cold for 6 months:D [​IMG]Two nice bucks.

    Lovely work on the stock, I just don't have the patience for that.

    Good day out on the patch as well, you don't get much for a couple of bucks these days:D

    Thanks mate, I eats em:D

    Sometimes I give them away to people like you know, when someone wants them that isn't often.:(

    Amazing I phoned my mother to see if her friend wanted these, they said no but were in a local pub eating rabbit pie, so they asked the pub who they got them from but it was the same old mate, they buy them in probably farmed or something.

    that's because there's no such lingo.
