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.

    '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.

Two hours in the orchard

    I haven't been able to get out for a couple of weeks so it was lovely to get out for the last two hours of daylight today.
    I went to the orchard part of my farm permission and just set up on a bipod in a place where I could shoot 180 degrees of one side.
    I bought the HW second hand and added a few tricks. It's an absolute belter using 4.52 AA Fields.
    The squirrel showed up first at my zero distance of 36yds and it was a simple case of crosshairs on brainbox, pull trigger and not even a twitch.
    The bunnies showed up sporadically and at varying distances and angles, when you're 51 it's damn difficult to move, on your belly, with your gun, slowly enough to not spook your quarry, but for once, the old bones did as they were bid and I managed four perfect headshots.
    I've got to say that the Hawke Airmax I've got on the Kraut is superb for the money (£90). I have Mamba Lites on everything else but went for ultimate lightness on the Kraut.

    One more thing, excuse me for rambling on, but I love this sport and thank . and everyone else that I can still roam the countryside and do this.

    Thanks Matt. CS800 stock, A&M cylinder, Rowan cylinder band and Rowan trigger, and Twink MK2 silencer. Only a couple of pieces that are still HW so that may explain it. :D

    I'm sorry but if you have a HW100,you're in no position to pick faults with other guns :p :)

    The 100 definitely came out of the walnut ugly tree ;)
