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.

    'Behaviour

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.

    Had a very quick go on a Steyr today , by quick I mean one shot , rested lol . I think it was a 110 but I'm not too up on high end rifles so not sure . It had a Yukon digital sight on which absolutely blew me away , but the trigger and thumb safety is what stunned me , I griped the pistol grip , laid my thumb on the safety , thought about the trigger , at which point the rifle sensed I was ready to shoot and did the hard work for me .

    id always thought they felt how they looked , I.e plasticy and light . Now I'm seriously thinking about trading in a kidney for one . Tech and rifles don't belong together used to be my mantra where rifles were concerned , now I have to go and have a proper play with one to see if it's the rifle or the just the sheer novelty that has impressed me :rolleyes:

    Just checked a few pics online and it was a 110 :up: im thinking about an EV2 as well , and an FTP900 . I know they're all decent rifles but it's the look of the air arms that I really like . I'm usually stuck in my ways but my thoughts around air rifles are changing from traditional to accepting more modern stuff I reckon :)

    It's the adjust-ability that makes a massive difference. I have come to learn that of late.

    the target rifles are a different kind of accurate my mk4.is is just as accurate as my ev2's but it has to be rested etc to match it out at 55 yard the target guns fit into you better so you can shoot better ie standing shots with my mk4 = iffy standing with my ev2's = hit

    i couldn't hit myself in the eye even if I was looking down the barrel with a standing shot . Well , I probably could but I need to get back to shooting one rifle regularly instead of flitting from one rifle to the next then doing the same with a scope lol .

    This was and has been my biggest mistake over the last two years. I am finally at one with my rifle after getting through 21 previous offerings.

    Interesting to know.
