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.

    Just getting into air guns after a long time. Looking at a BMA Ultra either single or multi shot.

    Is that an ok gun to start for target and vermin. 177 or 22?

    Thanks.

    Hi and welcome.

    Ultra's are very well regarded so you can't go wrong there mate. I'd say get a multi shot if you can though, bolt cocking rather than MMC but that's just personal preference.

    Calibre is just personal preference mate so you'll have to decide for yourself I'm afraid!

    Loads of info on here anyway so enjoy! :)

    Bma that's a new one lol. Y if you mean the bsa ultra yes that's a very good gun to start of with. With regards to 177 or 22 depends on what your shooting and whether you do more target or vermin. More target 177 single shot more vermin 22 multi shot. But really it's just personal preference. If you don't know the difference between them i.e flight path then I would looking that up yourself and see which you prefer then if possible test them both out.
    Good luck

    The .177 target and .22 for vermin thing is what people used to say but that's not the case now many people use .177 for both to great effect.
