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.'

  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.

    Some need the solitude, other the companionship. What is your preference?

    Kind offer, but I never shoot with others. Have always shot alone, other than with my old keeper friend who first took me out on the pigeons. I find that my own company is often the best. Plus working shifts, I am never about when others are usually off. And then there is the issue that all bar one of my permissions are privately owned equestrian properties, and the very reason that I have gained the permission in the first place is because I don't involve anyone other than myself, so I have to respect that. Cheers for thinking of me mind. KB1

    I am the complete opposite. Much prefer going with someone else. Again, end up going on my own mostly though. Unless I am duck shooting- go with someone else for that.

    Plinking is fine with others. Hunting is a solitary thing in my book, otherwise it just becomes a bit of a Ging gang Goolie.

    Yes, I tend to agree with you Harry. I spend most of my time with people so it is good to get away from time to time.

    When hunting, on your own is best, but it's nice sometimes to go and have a chinwag with a buddy and not worry about numbers.
    That's what I think anyway.

    With an air rifle it has to be solo. If it's pigeons with a shotgun or foxes under the lamp then I prefer to go with a friend.

    I always shoot with the same buddy, pigeon shooting is a great time to chat, take the p**s, any rifle shooting I almost exclusively use a vehicle, so again, I have someone with me, either to shoot or to drive.

    I like to go with others as I like the banter. Especially if someone misses an easy 20 yard shot
    Not naming and shaming but when when they bring the wrong pellets it doesn't help :laff::laff::laff::laff::laff::laff::laff::laff:
