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.

    Thank you.

  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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    You want to bait them a bit, then give them 2 days without....then bait again the day before you go. When you go they will be at the bait big style. It won't take them long to smell it.

    Great fun shootig rats. Bad news when it is on your own territory mind. Good luck going back to work. Sounds like you needed the rest. The allotment rats will give you something to look forward to for the weekend.

    Get a propane bottle (BBQ bottle!) and put some gas down the top hole of the warren......a few seconds worth of the valve open. It will sink down through the warren because it is heavier than air.

    Get a bamboo cane and whip (gaffer tape) a still to the end. Light the still and put it to the bottom hole of the warren. If it doesn't go WHOOOOOMPH, put more gas down and try again! The underground compression of the gas explosion will kill most of them. I did it with petrol once, about a gallon, but that was just silly! Flames came leaping out of the holes and singed the head keepers eyebrows off! Rats ran in all directions, but I tell you what, they took an age to repopulate that warren.

    PS - Can I film it when you do it?:D

    This sounds like heaven to me..I'm only get the odd one or two in my garden, and sometimes don't see one for days, not that my garden being over run would be fun lol.

    I want to find a place near-by to shoot. i've shot a few things over the years but hunting and killing rats is the most satisfying and although I've only had one clean kill I've been after them for weeks, they just don't sit still for long.

    The night site thing sounds like what I would enjoy...

    Sounds like you have plenty to have a go at. enjoy yourself.
