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.

  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.

    Since starting shooting a couple of years ago it has always felt more normal to me to use my middle finger on the trigger.
    How common is it to use the middle finger?
    Am I part of a tiny minority or is it more like 70/30?

    Just interested really.

    Cheers

    interesting you say that - the pull of the middle finger is more powerful than the index. I use the middle finger for my crosman 1077 as the trigger is so damn stiff!

    I use my middle on my springer as the trigger is rough and I have a tendon problem in my index finger

    Generally this tends to be used either as a preference or to stop trigger snatch (usually can be an issue with shotgun shooters)

    Middle finger on the trigger works surprisingly well for quicker rapid fire with semi auto paintball guns, but for airguns that is of no value and I find the index more natural. I tried it for a while trying to get the better of the crude trigger on an ASI sniper, to no avail.

    Apart from people with problems with their hands most use index as you have more control & feel of the trigger some users have just carried it on from using guns in their early lives when trigger reach was a problem.
