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.

    Ok thinking of a fun pistol for the garden plinking

    Thinking either some sort of CO2 or the brocock PCP. (72FS or SW 586):)

    Bearing in mind i have the air equipment to charge the pcp.

    I know the co2s are fun but what about running costs of co2 (had a cp88 and two sw586 6" barrels.

    Already got an Alecto with red dot and laser which i love. Not sure want a springer but have looked at the HW45 But it might make a nice companion to the Alecto.

    shame they dont make the old brocock cartridge guns anymore:)

    I have a Brocock Atomic. It is a lovely pistol. Much better balanced than the Grand Prix and very accurate. I shoot out to 25 yards+ and with a scope on it is cracking to shoot. I would defiantely recommend one, especially if you have charging kit anyway.

    Whats the point of that if you already have an Alecto? You would soon find your Alecto has no place.
    The CO2 option gives you rapid 'semi auto' shots (yes I know not technically) which gives a different spin on things. However the Brococks a far superior shooting machines.

    what would you buy and why?

    Given you already have an Alecto....... tricky

    Brocock - looks like somebody cut down a rifle..... and fitted an ambi handle....
    Crossman BB - bit too toy like - but might be fun in the garden
    Crossman C02 pellet - people who have these describe the Alecto trigger as "Match Grade" - worrying - but they seem to love them.

    Then there's the whole match pistol thing - these should come with a "Wallet Health Warning"
    AA Alpha - Neat and BLUE!
    Rohm - Classic and relatively affordable.

    Walther, Steyr et.al. - Join a club and buy secondhand.

    Sell the Alecto, get a Brocock for serious pistol shooting and something like a Walther CP88 for fun. To be honest I got bored with mine and got a hw45 instead. It just feels less toy like.

    The Atomic is the only well ballanced Brocock pistol but it's stock is a bit "Ikea Chair Leg" for many, modifying the trigger bar to allow angling of the trigger helped for me but it still doesn't fit a lot of people.
    The Rohm can be tuned to the same power level and is then a better platform than the Atomic etc.
    If you want accurate fast fire don't forget the Drulov DU-10, second hand ones keep popping up, or the Aeron BRNO b96, both brilliant fun and capable of true target performance ;-)
