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.

    Seems about the right price. Judging by what I read on the forum it's far more cost effective to work for cash and pay for shooting than spend your labour knocking on doors.

    Yeah its steep, but I've heard of people that pay £50 per month so its not that bad.

    Off topic Martin but can I ask you about your A&M cylinder on your HW100KS - is it right that its not quick fill and you have to empty it everytime?

    i do agree with that and i would pay myself if i was struggling for permission,i think though that anyone who is interested needs to find out if they were the only ones paying for the permission or if not how many,the one in barlow people were moaning as they were letting loads on apparently so folk were going up there to find other people had allready been round it and it was getting shot to death
    just to add im not saying its the same people in the add just an example as you can imagine how many will be interested :up:

    I don't know really either, I think you need 20 acres + for a start. I think there is a market for providing hunting for air gunners in syndicates, I don't know why they aren't more common.

    I put an ad on the SD at 10pm on a Sunday looking for two new members for a small deer stalking syndicate, making 6 guns on 1000 acres including vermin rights.

    By 8am Monday I'd had over 200 replies and all week guys were contacting me and what amazed me was 60% did not even meet the requirements.

    I personally think paying is a good idea but many air gunners feel they shouldn't have to pay to shoot vermin. Yet many deer stalkers and pigeon shoots have no issue with pay and play.

    What were the requirements that 60% did not meet?

    Do you think the price was too low given the interest ?

    No the minimum requirement was dsc1.

    Price was below average as it's non profit only condition was I wanted guys local to Leicester so the syndicate could share costs and get to know each other

    i do agree syndicates are a good idea but as mentioned above if run properly,id happily pay if so and if i was looking for permission,the case i was on about in barlow the bloke was apperantly just letting anyone on that turned up with cash,not only were people paying for basically a worthless permission it was dangerous for obviouse reasons
    run properly though with a regulated amount of people and again as said above that get to know each other theres definatly potential

    you wont find me paying to control someones pests/vermin,we are doing landowners a favour,they should be paying us really,but we do it for the sport/hobby/pastime or whatever you want to call it,i could understand if its for pheasant or deer or grouse,but not for just pest/vermin control
