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.

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.

  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.

    Not quite sure what market they are aimed at?.
    They still cost 6890 kroner here, and if you count that at 12kr = £1,(Think it's closer 12.75kr at the moment!) thats only £574.58p!.

    still to much for me, but i can take orders from here if anyones intrested!

    Way to much for me, but why are they so expensive in comparison to an air rifle ?
    You get a lot more engineering in a rifle surely, considering you can by an AirArms S410 multishot for £470, http://www.euroguns.co.uk/acatalog/Air_Arms.html
    why the big difference in price ? Don't say the engineering cos that's bull,
    Is it because the manufacturers don't sell as many so the cost of development etc is passed on to the consumer ?

    That ranchero is nothing more than a cut down cyclone, with the loading handle on the left side.
    I think they are just cashing in on a niche that must be for those who are loaded!.

    Slightly off topic, but if a bundle of used tenners fell from the sky one day I might be tempted to spend it on a really good match pistol - e.g. Steyr LP10. Looking at the Steyr website, there also do the LP50 which is a match pistol with a 5 shot magazine. AFAIK this isn't allowed in normal 10m competition and indeed Steyr provide a single shot mag to make the pistol legal for that. So what's the point, is there a type of competition that requires 5 shots in rapid succession?

    (and yes, it would have to be quite a large bundle too :D)

    there are many disciplines for a 5 shot
    rapid fire at 10m ,20yds and 25m
    standard pistol at the same
    falling plate at various timed sequences,and distance.
    many,if not all,are shot at various competitions around the uk.

    I can understand someone wanting to spend that much on a dedicated match pistol like a Steyr,but that is only your bog standard precharge pistol.Brockcock do one nearly identical for a shade under £300,i'd still need a bash on the nut to even pay that for a pistol personally.
