    Cool. (Though COBOL is more my era.) I just have to work out how the same personalised version of the Google Authenticator algorithm gets onto both my phones and my macbook. I guess my Google account controls that.

    Can someone explain how a standalone app like Google Authenticator which doesnt need a signal can generate a code acceptable by the forum and identifiable to me? How does it know it's me holding the phone? Not rhetorical, I just dont know. I use a combination of Macbook with Airmail email client, five email accounts on Google mail and Outlook mail, and two android phones with Aquamail email client. Once started on the 2FA path the complexity (even for this retired IT person) and the danger of being locked out somewhere along the line are too great to contemplate at this time. All my mail accounts have single password entry since all the problems with the interim solution before 2FA. Even if I activated it for this forum, the guy I bought from has my home address data in his PM and I can't protect that from my end. He would need to 2FA too. Not sure how GDRP protects me either. I can't ask you to delete his PMs. I prefer to stay relatively anonymous and use false personal data in forum profiles where possible ie be street smart. I will now review how I communicate with sellers for next time.

    Im still struggling to see what data is at risk. Apart from my email address and a photo of Victor Meldrew. How would I access the forum from the local library PC on holiday?

    Absolutely. Dont get me wrong. Neil has done a great job keeping out spammers. I have bought stuff here with a high level of confidence. On the other hand I had originally resisted registering my data with an unknown site with content you cant see unless you register. That is until @DavidLevene in another forum assured me it was safe. Without that assurance this site could have been anything and I know people who wont register because it is unknown on the web and invisible to non members. Making it even more difficult and you will continue to have sub forums that have not been posted in for many years.

    Just saying. No other forum that I know of uses it. But then no other forum needs registration to view content like this one. Its already more tightly controlled than most.

    Just my 2 penn'orth, if 2FA is ever compulsory is when I stop visiting. Google follows me about enough as it is without controlling my access to anything.

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

    Forum Blocked

    Its not the only gun forum to be blocked by many providers. It gives the snowflakes something to do reporting them. Surrey Guns was also blocked just before they went bust. I just ask my provider to switch off the adult filter which is not so easy on PAYG.

    Help

    Like I said Steyr.

    Help

    Steyr if you want gold medals. Avoid any pistol where the retailer cant give you a source of servicing and spares. Avoid anything under £1000 although Hammerli AP20 is popular. However see para 2 above.

    Looks like the new layout from this end.

    rear sight required

    Real Gamo sights with the name moulded on them like on the Supermatch were adequate but these latest ones that come with the Air Atms S200T and S400 10m are even cheaper copies. Yes Ive replaced mine with Centra Pro57 about the same price and same design as the Gehmann Compact. You still have the FWB front sight that's 4mm lower that could be a problem at 10m. Modern front sights won't fit.

    rear sight required

    I bought two of those chinese copy "Gamo type" 30 quid sights and both needed the clamp filing to bed them down and one iris plate wobbled so much I scrapped it. I think Air Arms et al get the pick of the batch for their rifles and the rest go on the spares market. They have 9.0mm thread not the standard 9.5 so you can't fit a better iris without retapping (see my youtube channel). FWB 300 standard sights are about 4mm lower and you may not have enough adjustment. Apart from that they'r ok

    10m target pistol

    I presume you mean 6004 and 604? The 6004 is a cheaply made version of 604 when Chiappa took over. They halved the price and quality went the same way. The late 604 without trigger stop were already going that way. I wouldn't use any ssp at 20 metres but a well maintained 604 from the 1990's will cut clean at 10m. PS that means they need maintaining and in my experience that means new seals every couple of years.

    10m target pistol

    They are all rare when you try to find one, cheap as chips when you want to get rid! The 90 has electric trigger otherwise its mostly an 80.

    10m target pistol

    Pity I just sold aFWB model 80 that would make the companion to your 300S. For a couple of hundred maybe look out for a 80 or 65. Consider FWB model 100 single stroke. Or a FAS 604 and get a 20th century one with a trigger stop but look out for cracks if it has the sharp corner as per video below. hopefully someone will have one. Clubs are the best places to find one.

    Spring, CO2, SSP or PCP?

    wanted FAS 604/6004 ambidextrous GRIP

    To commission a donated FAS 604 with fixed custom grip for use by club juniors we seek an Ambi grip for not much money. I think 6004 grip may fit. Offering only low tens as we are not a wealthy club. PM me
