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.'

  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.

    Just read a post re cap guns we more than likely all had as kids if your 35 pluss.
    wow I had some great toy guns, a few come to mind a plastic and metal what I guess was a german military rifle or a 303 lee Enfield that had a bolt and plastic bullets . It didn't fire them but on bolt action it ejected the round .
    Great fun .
    another I had was a dark grey plastic rifle more shot gun over under barrel ,you broke the last 8 inch of barrel loaded a rubber bullet sucker and hey presto,as a kid I could take out a moth on the ceiling.

    varied cap guns too which were great ,I could be john Wayne all day.

    My mate had the big johnnies 7 great but never appealed to me.

    oh and a double barrel shot tie with corks but I used to shoot coal beans lol.

    awesome days as a kid in the 70s

    I had a complete Johnny 7 given to me as a kid. Sadly back in the day it went to the school jumble. Wish I'd still got it now, they're worth quite a bit.

    Air fix used to make a tommy gun and a SLR replicas in about 2/3 size and they fired plastic bullets. I had a pistol I bought in the USA which fired little cork balls you rammed down the barrel and then put an oversize cap where the percussion cap would have gone on a real pistol

    i remember having tiny "keyring" pistols you loaded with a single cap... when caps actually made a "BANG!"
    also had a tiny revolver, you removed the cylinder and loaded it with a piece of spud and a cap and the cap shot the spud out... fiddly and time consuming but i think the whole loading experience was fun

    Haha the fun you could have with them was awesome! You never see toys like those these days.. Kids these days miss out on so much! I also used to love the polystyrene airplanes you used to get for 20p! With a plastic tip and propeller :) we would take turns throwing them and trying to shoot them with a GAT gun haha!

    OMG, I think you must be 47 years old or there about. I remember them oh so well. What about those two balls on the strings. Think they were called Clackers or something like that. Christ did they hurt if you got it wrong ever. KB1

    Haha I ain't that old! I am 31 and yeah I also remember those! They would cause so much pain! Specially after watching a action film or ninja movie as a child you would see them use those weapons that they threw at an enemy's feet whilst running away to trip them up! So of course as a young boys imagination can be crazy we would try to do the same thing using those clackers haha! Oh my shins tingle with pain just from thinking about it!
