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.

    Went out for an early woody shoot under my favourite tree.

    Set out my decoys and went into standby mode.

    First customers of the day landed 30 yrds away, a nice pair, one 3 yrds behind the other.
    One nearest me with its head up, one behind head down eating.
    Took aim at the head of the front one, and squeezed the trigger. Que slo-mo reverse matrix moment. Saw the pellet strike home on the 1st bird which dropped like a stone, which made the 2nd one pop it's head up and it caught the pellet square in the neck! It flipped, twitched, and ceased to be!

    Two birds with one shot. I actually did a little happy dance!!

    I was only out an hour in the end, as it started raining. But managed to stop dancing long enough to pot another two

    hello, i remember back in the 1960s when hare shooting was part of the game shooting days for beaters i shot 2 with one cartridge (12 bore) a 40 yard shot with no 5s, then hares were in large numbers on most big estates and this one was 1,600 acres, sadley the decline of the hare has brought many to think as myself it is better to see than shoot. but 2 pigeon with one pellet has to be a first on the forum ? and good for the cooking pot

    Cool mate! I had two rabbits with a 410 before but this is the first i have heard it happen with a pellet! Good shooting! Bet a .22 wouldn't have brought the same luck.
