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:

    '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.'

    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.

    Hi I'm a young shooter only 20 years young and from Manchester. Been shooting for a few years and only decided to take it more seriously recently by getting my first PCP rather than a springer, of which I had a Gamo and then a Remington Genesis 1000x. I'm now the proud owner of a Hatsan 44-10 with sound moderator, 10 shot rotary mag and a Nikon 4-12 x 50 scope. I'd love to get into hunting and would love for anyone to point me in the direction and maybe even take me along with them so I can get a hold of the ropes from a more seasoned expert. Thank you

    You have made 3 posts and in each one you are asking for people to take you on their perm, my advice is stick around a while and get to know others before you ask for that kind of thing, perms are precious to those that have them and won't just take you out like that. Have you tried getting your own, knocking on a few doors and asking would be a good start, but before that make sure your capable of shooting a very consistent grouping so as not to injure any animal.

    Oh, and :welcome: to the forum.

    Welcome along mate. I'm sure with a bit more time spent on here and taking on board what other more experienced hunters say and have done in the past about getting permissions then you'll soon get your own permission.

    Cheers for the advice guys I don't really know what the etiquette is here and how these things really work but I thing I get what you guys are saying and take it on board I didn't think permissions were precious or hard to get tbh so a bit foolish on my side of things will do guys and thanks for the welcome hope to get to know a few more of you!
