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.

  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.

    If you had one shot and had to hit a blue bottle on a target card at 35yrds, with your airgun to hit it would mean you win £100 but if you miss you have to pay £100.

    Would you try it with one of your airguns, and what is the airgun you own that you would use?

    I'd have doubled that bet with my old HW77 15 years ago. But money didn't mean much then. :D

    This sounds like the English version of buckfast!!

    You could drink the stuff for hours, then out of the blue "STEAMIN" the hangover was horrendous!!

    The only thing that fixed it was flat Irnbru and a packet of paracetamol!

    So would I mate my stomach tenses up just mentioning it, and its been 20 yrs since I last had some:D

    Anyway, back on topic I would put my full trust in the Rapid, the rest would do it but the Rapid would have the most chance of getting me £100 in the pocket and least chance of taking it out.

    Would go for my LG110. Easy £100 as long as there isn't a gale blowing or earthquake/volcano eruption going on nearby :)

    I'd throw a Turkish Webley Tempest at it - Which will Increase it's power and accuracy drastically . Even if I dont get it with a direct hit, one of the flying plastic bits is bound to swat the little beggar as the gun disintegrates.
    Can I have my £100 now....? :D

    No, I can't do that, my groups at that distance are twice the size of that fly so only a 50% chance really :)

    Ps- this is another reason for getting .22 more chance of hitting it :)

    Bench rested and no wind with ten minutes warm up and zero refining time I would have a good stab at it with either my EV2 or Airwolf running weighed pellets. Unweighed pellets then I'd be £100 lighter!
    Change in POI from lightest to heaviest in the tin with JSB is around the size of a bluebottle.
    If FT sitting position then unlikely and no chance kneeling.

    has anyone looked at the legality of shooting flies for fun and are they legal quarry or vermin and as such have you done everything to stop them landing in the target area ? i cant find anything about it on the natural england website .:laff::laff::laff:

    In answer to the original question, sadly very few. If such a challenge was made I think I'd be reaching for my NJR100 :)
