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.'

  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.

    I have recently had a wanted ad on here and a couple of other places for either a Theoben MFR or TTR1 in .177.

    Yesterday I spotted an ad for a MFR in .20.
    I have never owned a .20 so it go me thinking of trying something different, especially for hunting ..... I have always shot .177 and have a couple of them to choose from. So I met up with the seller today and bought it home with me :D.

    The photo`s are from the sellers ad, it came with everything pictured except the scope. The seller also included a smart (cool) military ammo box for all the included pellets.

    I am looking forward to scoping, zeroing and using the MFR and to see if .20 is the way forward for hunting.

    Thank you to Eddie who sold me the MFR ...... Totally hassle free!!

    I`m not sure Dave, I don`t think so.
    The guy I bought it off was Edwin (Eddie) and he bought it off a (older) guy from his local club up Lowestoft way I think.

    It is in great condition though and has a BTAS reg fitted

    Quiet enough not to need a silencer IMO mate.

    No doubt a silencer would make it even quieter, but I want it to remain in standard guise.;)
