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.'

    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.

    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item

    Up my mates farm for a quick 2 and a half hour shoot tonight hoping to see more rabbits. Walked some of my usual pattern and about an hour before dark I head back right by the farm yard by two massive modern steel type barns waiting at a bit of an ambush area where I saw the rabbit 2 mornings ago. Standing by a wooden gate sheltered by some low hanging trees, I settled in.

    I'm still there patiently waiting and not seeing anything for about 45 mins. The sun has gone down and it's just starting to darken a bit and I have to go soon to fetch the G/F from work. Come on rabbits, where are you? Another 5 mins pass and nothing. Starting to feel the disappointment of another missed chance. 10 more mins, it's the last of the useable light and I have to go very soon or I'll be late.

    Then I hear the smallest rustle of grass about 20 Yards front and slightly left of me and there it is, a beautiful looking rabbit just sitting there staring at me through the 1" wire mesh at the bottom of the gate! I took aim, but couldn't quite get a clear enough shot to guarantee an instant kill.

    The rabbit is fidgeting about non-stop and is just moving slowly into a guaranteed kill shot area when I involuntarily let off what has to be one of the loudest farts I've done in years :facepalm:. The sound travels off at, well, the speed of sound I guess haha, and it goes reverberating and echoing inside those two huge barns and the bloody rabbit takes fright and dives for cover into the nearest hedge :susp:. Another failure to get my first rabbit.......Sigh.

    So the moral of this story is, never eat a whole tin of heinz beans a couple of hours before going off for a shoot! ;). Next time maybe I should fit a moderator to my arse just in case eh?

    Andy :facepalm:

    Andy, that was funny!

    Reading your post I kept getting Elmer Fudd and Bill Murray's character in Caddy Shack popping in my head.

    Maybe you should just pop up the warren, sit on a hole and gas them?

    Work on your pelvic floor muscles!

    Im sure you could learn to nip them in on times of great importance, just think yourself lucky you were not front of the que in a quiet bank!

    Anyway I thought thats what hft cushions were designed for with built in fart absorbshion fillings.

    You've not changed gender but do appear to have changed your name. Trade Mark issue?

    Yes a name change was requested and sorted, no sex change on here guys :p

    Great story made me laugh, I think we've all done daft stuff when out hunting. I stalked a pile of cow dung one evening at dusk, looped all the way round the field to get closer and while I was doing so kept checking it was there, yes it was! Once set up to take the shot I then noticed what it was :facepalm::D

    Heck nah mate. If Edgar Bros or Hatsan Arms had insisted I change a simple forum name because of some "trademark" issue, I would have taken the 60's and smashed the ******* thing across the nearest wall :D. Then I would be off out to buy a different rifle.....in about 3 months when I could afford it :eek:. Hmm, on second thoughts, not such a good idea eh? :rolleyes: I'll keep the Hatsan......for now :p

    See this thread for the reason for my name change if you wish. It turned out to be quite a funny thread actually :)

    Done it myself! You have to shoot the dung after putting the work in, right?

    Glad it was a name change, for a moment I thought we had another Welshman with an aggressive looking dragon as an avatar. I'll put my tin hat back in the cupboard.

    I think you misunderstood the manual when it said to gently exhale before taking the shot mate.

    You dont have to be a pregnant woman to work on your pelvic floor muscles:(

    In fact its probably the most beneficial to pregnant looking men than women.

    Mrs is a Nurse and my mum see, and no I don't look pregnant ;):D
