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.

    I figure when out hunting or at the club you aren't unscrewing a tin, trying to lay it flat and then spilling pellets all over the place - so do I buy a pellet pouch of some sort?

    Cheers

    I use a tablet holder. You know, the seven day clear containers that you can get. As I oil my pellets, I find this very useful because it gives me a clear indication of how many I am carrying at any one time, being made of clear plastic. KB1.

    I like to keep my pellets clean, protected and accessible but without rattling as well to avoid spooking quarry by the noise. I use one of the Wilkins hard leather pouches, I have a couple for different rifles. A large, black one for the Rapid .20, because it will hold about 100 pellets AND a magazine without crushing the pellets. I have glued foam from the JSB pellet tins around the inside of the pouch to stop the rattles and help cushin the pellets.

    A small brown one does me for the break barrel .20, because I don't need access so quickly with a break barrel. You are never going to get a fast follow up shot off. It helps concentrate the mind on getting a telling shot in first time.

    I use foam in cigarette cases (from the pound shop), no noise when walking, pellets kept in good condition (no deformed skirts , no dust, fluff, or grit to get into the action) slim and flat in the pocket , open up and the pellets are held in the foam even if caught and overturned no pellets lost

    I had a Wilkins pellet pouch but, one I don't like anything around my neck when hunting and two I don't like anything that can make a noise when walking as the Wilkins are quite rigid.

    So Ive returned to the old pouches I used a lad, often the first thought is the best.

    I have a velvet pounch some small aftershave bottle came in, other one just a soft leather pull cord jobbie, fits hw100 and Rapid mags in that one.;) had them both best part of 25yrs

    I use this...an old coin wallet (it's a coin purse really, but blokes don't carry purses!).
    It could have been made for the job, it's flat in the pocket, carries more than enough pellets & there's no rattling about as I walk.

    sorry can not do photos but they are 3" square, 1/2" thick, the .177 has 150 pellets in it and the .22 has 100 they can hold more but I got fed up of punching holes. as they are 'leather' covered I use a dark colour for the .22 and a light colour for the .177 so I pick up the right one when going out with different calibres
