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.

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.

    Can I have your help on this one please guys, after the recent loss of my rifles the insurance company wants a couple of quotes to replace on a like for like basis, now this isn't a big problem but I would like to put my business to people who deserve it.
    The guns in question were modded so it may be a little more work for the quotes but the return should be more to compensate.
    I went into one shop this morning to be told, £10 for it writing up, now I appreciate that it takes time but I would expect a business to go out of their way a little to secure a sale, needless to say I won't be going there. (plenty of bad reviews on here anyway)
    So, who are the most helpful ? I don't mind travelling a bit for the right shop.
    South Yorks, North Notts. area is where I am.
    Thanks

    Locally to Retford, there's Kexby Field Sports, and Clayworth Shooting Supplies.

    No experience of either of them it's just what came up locally to you, however, further afield, i've dealt with Kibworth Shooting Ground on a face to face basis and they were quite pleasant. Also bought an air rifle from Airgun Centre in Rayleigh in Essex, their after-service was ok.

    Have you tried Walkers of Trowel.
    Just down the road from you. Nice guy. Whether he is into doing something for nothing I don't know.
    I would have thought a tenner for the service you need is very reasonable.

    I understand that it may be something for nothing, I am no stranger to quoting jobs myself. I tend to look at it from the point of potential sales so wouldn't dream of charging myself .
    This is a potential sale in excess of 2K, so putting a bit of work in for it would be acceptable to me.
    Not saying they are wrong for charging though, it's just an opinion.

    If the shop wants to charge you a tenner for a written quotation on headed business paper(and that's what the insurance company want I expect)you could always ask the shop if the tenner is refundable should you place the order with them,I'm almost certain they would agree to that.
