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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    It's not uncommon unfortunately, as we know all too well there are plenty of idiots about. I have seen some road signs (alongside main dual carriageway) which look as though they were shot with 12 bore solid slug - holes more than 20mm diameter.

    Used to sometimes see this close to the border in South Armagh. PIRA marksman check zeroing a few hundred metres from across the border in a good safe position , easy to drive past innocently later and check their grouping.

    That's probably someone bored though.

    There are a couple of road signs I pass most days that are shot like this.

    It's so stupid, it doesn't take CSI:Miami to work out from the angle who is shooting them from their bedroom window!

    Maybe the shooter skid off the road in their car there recently and took the rifle out for a bit of target practise while waiting to be rescued :D. Hmm, now what to shoot? Ahhhh, that will do nicely :rolleyes:.

    :eek: :down:Worst grouping I have ever seen......looks like they were thown by hand.
    Serious point though is that once again some absolute brain dead wally has demonstrated to the public that the remainder of RESPONSIBLE airgun shooters are, in their narrow visioned self opionated minds, just the same. They will not or ever read the great efforts made by the rest of us to be the most actively responsible minded and acting of all sportsmen.
    :up: If anyone knows the name of this childish wally........tell the police (because he has broken the law plus caused criminal damage) and publicly shame him by telling his neighbours what happened. With luck the Police will confiscate his highly inaccurate toy. 'Toy' because any real weapon would be capable of a far tighter group.

    Take a walk up onto Salisbury Plane around Imber village and nearly every sign you come across has been shot by the army on manoeuvres.

    This-some slingshots with flat bands and 12mm ball bearings will easily exceed 22 ftlb.

    Explains the crap groupings too :p
