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.

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.

    Hi all, Since I was a kid I've always wanted to have my own air pistol, my parents wouldn't allow me :mad: , I've now reached a ripe of age where the belly is bigger than my feet and have a little disposable cash. So I've been doing some research online.. (way too much according to my mrs) and almost decided to get either a Beeman 2004e/p17 or a Weihrauch HW40, from what I can see are basically the same but one made in China and the other in Germany. The problem I have is I live in Reading, I've looked through Google and I can't find any dealers near. So to the question, does anyone know where the nearest place I can get my hands on both to feel the quality before I make a purchase?

    Thanks in advance

    Would you consider second hand and having one delivered by courier?

    Its a fifty minute drive to ronnie sunshines in Berkhampstead. Alternatively I go to Ronnies quite often and work just outside High Wycombe so if you were really stuck i could pick it up for you and you could collect from me in Wycombe.

    give them a call just to make sure they have one in and book an hour on their range so you can have a shoot with it before you leave. Nice people there, very helpful. My HW95 and Alecto both come from Ronnies.

    What I'd do, in fact what I and a hell of a lot of others do do, is to go to Versandaus Schneider's website and buy from Germany at a significantly reduced price, and due to E.U law, have it perfectly legally delivered to the door by parcel in about 5 days.

    As I say this is perfectly legal delivery wise, the only thing you must check though is that the product you're buying is UK legal, the ones you mention are.

    Put it this way, including delivery, it's still cheaper than buying in the shops

    I would have thought so but you need to be careful when ordering due to the power differences. Some are advertised at 7.5J and 16J
