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.

  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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

Question £1000 or so budget - what would you buy ?

    Due to changes at work I can no longer find the time to go to the range so my gorgeous custom HFT HW100 has been sold. I really didn't want to drag that gorgeous stock over the fields plus she was quiet heavy.

    I maybe able to grab an hour or so every now and again over my permissions and really don't want to give up this sport that I love and the permissions I fought so hard to get, so what I am looking for now is a top quality light hunting rifle, probably tactical and probably .22

    I fancy the Airwolf .MCT Tactical in .22 and have a "wanted" thread running. My budget is about £1000. My RFD says a new Airwolf will be a month before delivery at £1,420 and he will throw in the £63 Airstream Mk6 mod plus lifetime servicing and repairs f.o.c.

    Tempting ..... but what else is out there for this kind of money ? What would you go for in my position ? I don't really want to go cheaper and step backwards from my HW100 so looking top end.

    What would you buy and why ? Verminator ? Bullpup of some sort ? I want a very quiet rifle as one of my permissions has horses on that come pretty close sometimes.

    Help me get off the fence please gents.

    Thanks Pete :D:up:

    Get a good MFR inmo the only gun as good as the hw100 but with more shots, robust and quality engineering.

    Ive got a Daystate but they are not half as well made as the above.

    What about secondhand ?

    You could get a nice GC2 for that money.

    I'm a bit torn on the nv ? I really want the Yukon but that means the scorp would be a tad restricted to one job... lm considering one of nitro joe s rigs so I can transfere between guns. But as for the scorpion I'm very happy with it and I had about the same budget as you but didn't feel the need to blow the lot. As much as I liked the 100 it just didn't fit .

    It seems a lot of people swap the inbuilt IR to a Nightmaster 800-IR ? as the in built seems a bit grainy. so yet more to bolt on and 5 x mag seems a bit low to me having a Mamba 4-16 currently

    hello, with that budget you could get 2 PCPs a .177 and .22, 1 day scope, and a photon, photon @£400, day scope £50 leaving £550 to look for a s/h AA S200 £250 in .22 and a brockock in .177 @ £300. just a little extra for the pump unless you can get a deal with rifle.

    At nearly £1800 I think that may stretch his ballpark £1000 just a tad!

    If you shop around you can get them closer to the £1400 mark around the same as he was thinking of spending on the daystate.

    Blimey, £1000? You should be careful here. Play your cards right and you may be allowed another gun later.....different calibre or discipline. I suggest you get a good second hand pcp and take the missus for a weekend break to Paris on the change. Sweeten them up. It worked for me. I quote: "more items from Ebay I see. I'm looking forward to our next mini holiday"!!!
