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.

    Nice shooting :up:

    i managed to get a plinking session in today. Was still a bit windy but 20-25m and was getting some good groups. No where near as good as yours but still under a 2p which is good for me :)

    Nice one Steve, I went out hunting in this wind this afternoon, I was only shooting 25 yrds ish but needed a milldot below and a milldot to the left, it was a learning curve but got there in the end.

    Thing in the field is your up against the elements like today I was shooting at 45 degrees upwards at only 25 yrds on top of a hill in real blustery conditions, you would think the shooting easy at that range but all those factors combined made it very tricky, I put a few groups on the tree on a branch that clearly showed the impact, and the results at 25 yrds where half inch at best, so wouldn't want to go any further than 25 today, even though I know in dead still conditions the gun will put in pea sized groups at 40yrds.

    Managed a straight twenty woodies though so more than pleased but a few clear misses also to start with:eek:

    Nice one mate!

    I can get good groups out to 35, but for some reason that extra 5 to 40 every thing just opens up!

    I thought about a pellet change, but give the rifle to my mate and 5p groups at 40 all bloody day, I'm sure the arshole converses with Yoda. It's not very easy with the coming time of year for some serious practice, there's a few large barns around were I live, so going to ask if I can have a corner for some winter plinking:)

    Work has been really mad this summer, so I've missed some perfect hunting days, overcast and not a breath of wind.

    Bloody work!!
