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.

    Popped along to a new permission today and it seems to have just as many squirrels as my other permission. It's an old vicarage and ive been asked to knock the rabbit and squirrel population down a bit. I recently purchased an Air Arms S200 from a fellow forum member and after a bit of TLC i thought this would be an ideal opportunity to try it out.
    As i pulled up the drive i was met by the sight of squirrels running everywhere. I positioned myself under a hazelnut tree where there was a large horizontal branch from an oak tree which looked like a prime position to intercept them.
    Within 10 mins of sitting there quietly there was movement in the oak tree and sure enough the first one ran along the branch and stopped halfway along it. I placed the cross hairs just behind his eye and gently pulled the trigger.The sound of a decent head shot rang out and he fell to the ground without even a flinch.
    Within 10 mins another one a little smaller did exactly the same thing and ended up on the ground within inches of his pal. Had to leave soon after due to a phone call from the Mrs but i think its going to be a busy few days reducing numbers and the phone will stay at home tomorrow.

    Good shooting! The little beggars seem to be avoiding my garden after knocking down four of them in two days!

    So now we know who wears the trousers in the Damon household! :D

    Don't leave the phone at home - leave it in the car, just in case you need it.
