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.

    If your looking at new air rifles, I personally think you can't go wrong with a hatsan, either the 55s or the 60s depending on whether you want a .22 or .177. Cost about £120 new and are pretty accurate and well made.

    They have a good rep, and leaves you a little in your budget for a decent scope too. Stoeger X20S also a good one but let down by it's trigger, which can be upgraded.

    Another to consider is the Remington Express, they come scoped, but again leaves you a little budget for a better scope if you need to.

    For £200, you are mainly in springer territory, as the cost of a second hand PCP and all the filling gear will be nearer £250-300. Up to £200 could see you get your hands on the likes of a second hand HW95 or similar.

    Just read a review for this and note at end that it is only available in.177, is this the best calibre for someone "wanting to get into shooting" given the much flatter trajectory of .177?

    It's only available in .22 but it did fine for me,had it for a year before purchasing a PCP,still shoot the Hatsan now,other choice is a Hatsan Striker.
