    Ever messaged someone your bank details while selling something on here? That data. Ever sent someone your address when buying? That data. Ever used your name when arranging to meet someone at Bisley in a PM? That data. It's easier than you think to steal valuable data via online profiles.

    Peter, the forum has been running for 16yrs, and when it was first started there were a number of people trying to join and advertise rubbish which was nothing to do with shooting. So yes, I put in the sign-up phase to try keep it to genuine shooting enthusiasts.

    Hi all, We've enabled what is called Two Factor Authentication (2FA). Some of you will have seen this in your online banking and other similar systems where by a username and password are 'complimented' with a One Time Password (OTP). Some systems will call you, some will send you an SMS to your mobile and you then enter a code into the website to complete the login. We've opted for Google Authenticator (you can use alternative similar Authenticator tools also) which is free for you to install on your mobile/tablet and there apps for your PC too. Why are we doing this? Sadly in the world we live in today, more and more crime is done online and these unscrupulous individuals are always looking for data on their victims which they can use against them. We want to ensure you continue to enjoy a safe environment on our forum, and make sure your account is as difficult as possible for someone to compromise. How do I enable 2FA on my stirton.com account? Go to your Settings and re-authenticate with your password Download Google Authenticator from the Android or Apple store on to your mobile device (preferred route, alternatively you can Google how to get it on to your PC/Mac/Linux device) When in Google Authenticator, the easiest way is to click on the + symbol and let your mobile device's camera take a picture of the square QR code on screen. This will automatically set up forum.stirton.com within the app, and will give you a 6 digit code. Enter the 6-digit code you see within Authenticator into the dialog box on the forum and "Verify Code" You should now have protected your account. Are we making this mandatory? At present, no. This is an optional security measure for those of you who wish to benefit from it. That's not to say that we won't make it compulsory in the future, depending on if we see any attempts on security from said aforementioned unscrupulous parties. Many thanks Neil

    Tabular vs Grid Layout

    Fair enough. I didn’t notice anything change back in Feb but this layout is fine anyway.

    Wanted Anchutz 6702

    And, more than likely, a foresight, handstop, buttplate etc. If not, the negotiate the price. Jonty

    Wanted Anchutz 6702

    £50-£60 sounds about right for a 6702. However, I wouldnt advise buying one when it is more than likely that when you get your first rifle, it will probably come with a rear sight. Jonty
