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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Good morning,

    I'm too lazy to do a search and I can't seem to find the info on the BASC site so I do apologize!

    Basically, I've been asked to cull some pigeons and big arsed MAHOOOOSIVE seagulls!!

    Is this legal? (The seagulls)

    I'm pretty sure that I saw a photo once of a Seagull with a crossbow bolt through its head?! Is my .22 gonna take one out?! lol.

    I heard they took gulls off because people kept shooting the nicer black headed gulls. Herring gulls and black backs are rife around here. I saw a black back take a shell duckling other month. Was horrible!!

    I've left this on to annoy Darren Petts, Barcelona, and all the other old people.

    Not sure of the law with shooting gulls in the very inner city of Brum but I can't see that happening. Oasis :) brings back memories does that.

    I've been looking at it today, It's going to be one hell of a tricky shoot! There's office blocks surrounding the site.

    You really need to be careful when identifying gulls, there are some very rare ones that look a lot like more common ones and a lot of them are hard to identify unless you're an expert. If your license only allows you to shoot a specific variety be very careful to get the right ones.

    Anyone who refers to a black headed gull as a seagull shouldn't be shooting anything until he/she educate themselves, that 'seagull' might just be one of an endangered species. Have a look on Amazon UK, they had The Hamlyn Guide To Birds for £1.10 posted a while ago, the're £7.99 in book shops.

    Very true, and that is why the OP has not shot anything and instead has started his education by posting this thread. I am sure he is greatful for your advice.

    Anyone who admits to being 'too lazy to do a search', might just be too lazy to bother learning about different species of bird life, Hamlyn's Guide is a cracking pocket sized guide, I fully recommend it.

    Steve1987, when you say West Mids have given you permission what do you mean? I can't believe anyone would allow shooting from the rooftop of any building within the city centre. Within minutes ARV's would at the door of the office.
