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.

    '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.

    just todays hunting story

    with in ten minuets of ariving at the farm there we four less ferals to wory about.

    as i walked in to the shed i droped to one knee and took one with a chest shot at 20 yds.

    after that one i walked over to a stack of hay bales an poed the gun over the top. i saw two ferals next to each other.
    I droped one with a headshot and the other just looked down wondering what was up with his buddy, well he soon found out.

    after that i walked outside and heard another hooting. i spun round with the gun already in my shoulder and the first stage of the trigger taken up ready. i knew i had little time as it was about to take off. the scope locked on to it and with a twich of the finger i sent a pellet on its way.

    the bird did a hop skip and a jump off the roof and thumped the ground.

    the farmer (and the cat population) looked very pleased with 4 birds in my hand at such an early stage.

    unfortunatley this was almost all the action i saw. for hours there was no activity so to pass the time i did a prahaps pointless autopsy on the pigeon. i thought about looking for the pellet to see the deformation but soon gave up. gutting pigeons isnt as fun as i first thought

    again the cats were pleased with my failed autopsy as the meat was ready cut for them.

    later on (a while later i might add) i poped another on the roof and then just as i was about to leave i saw another in the shed so i gave him a .22 as a leaving gift.

    so my .22 nabed 6 birds and a 100% hit/kill rate too i might add

    i got a 100% hit rate how would .177 help?

    i probably would have had a smaller bag.

    i doubt you can chest shoot with a .177

    sometimes i understand why a .177 would be better when stalking squirels for example but in this situation i'm sorry but .22 has to take the buisguit in all forms

    177 is much better penetrating feather/ and you should not take chest shots on pigeon wih either callibre a full crop will make it hard for a clean kill
