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.

    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.

    Hi guys

    As my club shares it's ranges between airguns, live ammo and black powder weapons, we are expected to wear ear defenders whilst the noisier weapons are firing.

    Whilst we can borrow some club ear defenders, I want to buy Alex and I our own.

    I've been looking at the Peltor Optime ii ranges. Do you think these would be ok, or is there anything else you'd reccomend? I don't want to spend a fortune on them, maybe £25 a pair tops?

    Your thoughts?

    something like that will do you well, you will still be able to hear untill a loud noise occurs where it then shuts out, these are a godsend at work, does make it sound like a portable radio though.

    I know it's a little more then you wanted to spend but you wont have to faff around taking them on and off for when you're talking then :)

    Never been to a club so wouldn't know, but could you use the disposable ear plugs rather than defenders? If so, i could possibly get you some from work.

    What cal was that? Sounded nice. I remember when I tried a moderated .223 and said to the owner that I didn't think the moderator did much, so he replied by taking it off and letting me have a go:eek:
    Our ears were ringing for quite a while after that:D

    Erm, that particular one is a bit dead, thus you can't have him.

    However, here is a picture of one of our other cats that is very much alive, but you can't have him either!

    :D
