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.

    If it is genuine panther then you have a bargain, I brought one new so i Know, is it 177 or 22? they need to be filled with air very slowly I take mine upto about 225 bar.
    Check the o ring on the pellet probe they do need replacing about 1000 shots maybe less if using magazine BS003 for 177 BS004 for 22.
    You may need to adjust air stripper at end of barrel once you get it right it is a lovely gun, very consistent.
    make sure you get battery charger and keys when you collect

    If you're not getting the rifle until next week why not pay all at once rather than handing money over for nothing in return at first.

    £650 is too much of a bargain and its making me sceptical. You may wanna keep your whits about you :)

    Can someone translate this for me please? I think it's written in Swahili, but I can't be certain ;)




    Ok, ok, I'm just kidding around lol. But it sounds too good to be true to me, know what I mean guv'nor, nudge nudge, wink wink. I'd be very careful myself. If it sounds dodgy, it um, might be :susp:

    If its someone he can trust then I would agree...lower deposit, then remaining amount. Paying 75% without having the goods sounds dodgy. If you can trust him, can he trust you and let you have the gun until you pay the 150?

    If not, just wait a week for the full amount.

    Thanks
    Tim

    Sounds legit enough then going on what you have said. Why such a low price then as the guys have said here this particular rifle/setup costs way more than £650? Just asking like :)

    I really hope this turns out well for you **.I gotta say it sounds dodgy though.if it were me I'd only part with £500 with nothing in return to a very good mate.then I can't see why they wouldn't say here's the rifle,I'll see you next week for the rest of it! Let us know how you get on.atb jw
