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.

    Hi. I'm looking at getting a springer for my back garden, which is only 10 m long. I want iron sights, not to heavy and with a budget around £200'ish. Was looking at the hw99s, but is there some thing else I should look at, or any thing I should know about the hw99s? Cheers in advance.

    99s are good guns,a little modifying to stop the cocking issues and they are excellent.

    I have a nice little 99 in 177 and it's nice to take to the range now and then and give it a run out. A few people have shot it and are really surprised how good they are. Great little Plinker.

    For a garden plink, I think you'd struggle to beat the HW30S, all the usual HW quality build, accuracy and trigger benefits, but lighter even than the 99.
    Weight makes it easy for a mixed crowd to use, power is 8ish, so backstops will last longer and ricochet chances reduced, quieter so less offensive to the neighbours.
    Unless you plan to upgrade to hunting or longer ranges the mid range power wont be an issue.

    If things must be full power, then the 99 is great.

    Have both, but the 30 gets far greater use in the garden.
