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.

    Put my WTC up for sale/swap on PW forum last night.

    A bloke's offered me a mint Leupold VXII 3-9x50 LR as a straight swap. Only thing is it's a duplex/30/30 ret (same as the WTC).

    Surely I'd be mad to refuse?

    You're nothing but a gypsy!:) Even got the long dog running around the camp!:D

    I think you would be missing a trick if you didn't PROVIDED the Leupold is not broken and is a genuine.

    I got a WTC 3.5-10 x 50 a Phillipines one the other day to replace the rubbish that broke on the SLR.....if you can get a Leupod for that money, go for it.

    Nah, it's an established member of the forum with a good command of the English language :D

    Full paperwork with it supposedly, I'll check the serial number with the Leopold database before I commit to the swap but on the face of it it seems like a good deal.

    I reckon I can live with another 30/30 ret given the quality of the optics.

    I'm backing out of it and have sold it to him for cash instead - I'm unwilling to swap for a pig in a poke that might end up being an expensive paperweight.

    So, on the lookout for another scope now - but if a deal's too good to be true.........
