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.

  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.'

  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.

    Right , I was in the house last night and I decided to do some vermin control as the wife had been complaining about them being everywhere.

    I got my Daystate out and in no time at all came across the first one at very short range, so close in fact I couldn't even use my scope. I took aim, fired and saw him get bowled over and thought that's the end of him, only to see him crawl off.

    Two minutes later same range another one same result!

    After another two same scenario results I decided that this was cruel and obviously I need more power so I think fac is the only route for me !

    Ok so much for quarry respect. Vermin yes but come on. I don't post that much but read a lot of peoples posts on hunting views and how they advice new shooters to hunting and mostly describe how to set up their gun and practise on paper to be able to kill the quarry without suffering. Reading the op post seems to me to go completely the opposite way.

    Not quite sure what you're trying to say here as it doesn't read back very well. I think you are saying I have not practised enough but I can assure you I spend many hours on the range but these damn things were hit full force in the face, were bowled over, crawled a bit and then flew off so I'm thinking I need more power

    You didn't say what they were, although I think its safe to assume rats? Try some hollow points such as H&N Barracuda Hunter Extreme (the ones with the cross). I had the same problem with rats with .177 until I switched to those bad boys :)

    They are flies I've been dry firing them in my kitchen from about 4 inches away. I just thought it would be a good enough reason to go fac as 12ft lb air only stuns them but 40ft lb air should do the job! Ho ho ha ha ho ho lol

    Get a chrono check carried out but even if it's on the low side the Huntsman normally is a pretty damn good killing machine.

    What great fun - indoor shooting, I liked the idea of those little guns from the USA but heard they were crap, I could sit shooting flies all day.

    I nailed an earwig on the wall of the shed by his head at 30 yards with the R10 last week, made me so proud of my gun!
