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.

    Howdy, Im getting married in 6 weeks and being a hunter I wanted to give my bridal party .50CAL BMG Inert rounds engraved which is fine, but my best man is coming from Australia.. My question is can he take back his .50CAL INERT bullet to Australia without any trouble from customs? if he cant there is no point me doing that and I will get something boring like flasks or cufflinks :)
    Hopefully someone by a very long shot has dealt with this situation before haha :rolleyes:

    I came back from Canada some 14 years back from hunting and had 6 shell cases in my hand luggage...I know dum!

    Got as far as Amsterdam for a plane change to the UK....didnt get much further!

    Ended up in an interigation cell and after some hours and an interview I was released. Missed flight, luggage had long gone to to London I ended up in Glasgow.

    Havent done it since took up bow hunting abroad instead.

    haha oh dear Elk! Obviously they would be declared!! I have found some nice ones that have been cut into bottleopeners and engraved sent from USA 5 for £60 so maybe that bypasses it if they are clearly a bottle opener now?

    I would post it to Aus, it may be the easiest way.

    If they are labelled and clearly novelty items I couldn't see a problem but as Andrew said,having them posted would be easier.

    That's got to be your best bet.
    Your guests have a use for their gift and there is no need to prove the round is inert to some numpty at customs as it has a huge hole in it.
    Congratulations I hope the wedding goes well.
    Cheers Andy
