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.

    'Behaviour

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.

    Finally seeing a brief lull in my work I managed to get an impulsive hour out today on one of my shoots. Spotted some wood pigeons feeding in the next field so stalked and took one at 35 yards away due to the high wind I wasn't sure if I connected but the pigeon was up but flying like he was hit, I quickly round the corner but don't see him come down so I presume it wasn't a good shot or it was due to the wind his manner of flying. Spotted a rabbit a good 80 yards away, stalk to 30 yards (wanted to keep range short in this wind) I hears a whistle and it's a dog walker in a bright yellow tee shirt. Anyway the rabbit wasn't hanging around for long. All wasn't lost though, what's that grey and white thing in the grass ? It's the pigeon from earlier on stone dead wings spread out, I did get him after all.

    So off I go with full grown rabbits bolting out in front of me, cussing myself for not seeing each one, I come up to the horse field where I got permission last year which joins on to my farm permission. It looked like the rabbits were having a tea party on the lawn they were everywhere. So resting the huntsman on a fence post (using the leather sling as a cushion) I laser the first one at 30 yards take aim and he's on his side. The others don't seem to notice (lovely silencer that swift stumpy) so I pull back the bolt take aim at the next one and pop he's over, I repeated this five times in all and the result was 5 rabbits in an arc from my front all dead as dodo's. Decided that was good enough for me for the day I headed home and it started to rain. Result or what?

    Nice shooting mate, I like the huntsman in all its forms, I reckon there will be many a tale from a granddad to grandson in the future about using a daystate huntsman.:D:up: simple accurate and effective is all you need.:)
