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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  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.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

    Well, might have been yesterday as it goes. 25000 likes on my posts, you sad lot. Anyway, in the fine tradition of the AGF, I guess I'd better give something away. However, being a poor/tight-fisted sort, the prize ain't going to be much.

    So, what do you win? There will be two prizes and two (lucky) winners - one of whom will win a tin of 4.52mm JSB RS, the other a tin of 5.52mm JSB Jumbo RS. Say which calibre you'd prefer on your entry.

    The competition? I need to laugh, especially when my meds have run out, so tell me a funny shooting-related story that won't earn either of us a ban. The comp opens now and will run to 6pm (Worthing time) on Sunday 5th September. Entries will be judged by myself and a couple of my Gun Porn Goddesses. The two winners will be announced once I've recovered and prizes dispatched once @TheWolfmanStore (or my local man) has some RS in stock.

    Not worth the effort for a measly tin of RS? Maybe not, but at least we'll all have a laugh at your expense. And apologies to our overseas brethren, I'm only able to ship to UK addresses - but please have a go anyway, us Brits love your quaint colonial humour (and spelling).

    Now best of luck - and get to it... :D

    Congrats on 25k RW :claping::claping:

    Old gent who owns my perm as an air rifle :facepalm:. He asked me to zero it for him, no problem :thumb:.

    A few days later he calls me over as I'm walking up the drive and says "I thought you said you'd zero'd this gun".

    He goes on to point at a tree about 12yrds away. "I've been shooting at that pigeon and it's not even moved"
    I squint over to the tree, "what pigeon?"

    Man had been firing repeated shots at what turned out to be a tree blossom :facepalm::laff:

    You know which calibre :thumb:

    Congrats, 25k, impressive. :thumb:
    Funny storey? well a mate at the range was shooting his old pistol (Webley) at about 8m, with a paper target on a wooden stake. He got a Rick-Oh-Shay which came back and hit him right at the top of his thigh, just missing his vitals!
    He was hopping around and yelling for a bit. He did not think it was funny, but we all did! :D
    When he came back to the range the next week, he had a Mahoosive bruise at the top of his leg.
    Pellet choice = I'm easy, as I shoot .177 and .22. :)

    On a pheasant shoot end of season dinner for armed forces officers one naval officer comes out of the toilet & the hand dryer is not heard, a young air force officer says the the navy guy "in the air force they teach us to wash our hands after going to the toilet".
    The navy officer replied "in the navy they teach us not to p**s on our hands".
    This was 20yrs ago & hen's never lived it down.

    A shooting story, but not air related.

    When Spike Milligan was serving in Italy in1943, the 10 pounder battery he was acting as signaller for was beginning a huge barrage. One gun crew had forgotten to chock and lock off their gun. As a result, when they fired the first round, the recoil sent the gun shooting back and over the side of a ravine, landing in the middle of their camp, very narrowly missing a soldier's tent.

    There then came an outraged Welsh voice: "Who threw that?"

    It was the first time Spike Milligan met Harry Secombe.

    I hope this makes you giggle... preferred flavour .22 :)

    Congratulations on getting your 25,000 likes to posts.
    I used to work for a private company called Kynamco that had a 100 metre underground range and was used for many military and civilian industrial testing. On one particular occasion we had a film crew in to do a weapons and weapons effects video and even though our armoury was well stocked with section 5 weapons we needed to borrow an M16 and an AK47 from a local company. I fully expected to be assisting with the video but my boss had seen a couple of very nice looking women on the film and sound crew so he told me i would not be required and to stay in the loading room making up some ammunition for big game hunters. After the set up period i heard gunfire down on the range and then it went quiet. Weapon changeover i thought to myself then this huge burst of automatic fire. A few minutes later my boss appeared in the loading room looking extremely pale and asked me if i wouldn,t mind carrying on with the film crew which i obliged with. On entering the range i saw several bullet marks on the concrete floor and asked a member of the crew what had transpired. it worked out that my boss had a negligent discharge with an AK47 7.62 on auto and tried to destroy his own range. After the film crew had calmed down we completed the assignment and my boss never mentioned it again!!
    .22 for me .

    While serving with the infantry one of the lads decided to see what would happen if you fired a RPG (Rocket propelled grenade) straight up..

    He then received a very practical lesson in physics and gravity! Him and his mate cleared their position in about 2 seconds as 3 seconds later the grenade completed its journey back to its starting point, thus proving what goes up, must come down!

    Congrats on all the likes (sounds like attention seeking to me! Lol)

    I'll go for .22 for the 99s!

    Congratulations! That's a lotta likes indeed. :up:

    Learning about combustion

    In the mid 90's my teenage mind wandered between naked ladies, cars and guns like a bumble bee searching for nectar. My dad was in his mid 40's and worked for the MOD which gave him access to all kinds of interesting things. After spending a day with him at his place of work I became fascinated with mortars, as one does. My dad's proposal that a homemade version could be made based around the idea of the internal combustion engine had my mind whirring and planning out what could me made.

    After many failed attempts my good ole' dad stepped in and helped me. A simple device was constructed and fun was had. Only this lead me to other ideas. I was soon able to put a tennis ball clean out of sight, but this wasn't enough.

    Mk7 was built. A thing of true shed built beauty. Designed to fire an empty roll on deodorant filled with lead shots from shotgun shells. Yes, things had progressed.

    After difficulties with 'ignition', Dad stepped in and took the lead, making some design modifications. On one dark November evening, an almighty boom and shocking flash lit up the sky. As our ears rung, we heard the faint sound of bells. Not just the ringing in our ears but actual alarm bells, and lights, shouts too...

    Dad tossed me the smoking barrel and ran quicker than I thought possible back indoors.

    It's at this point I feel I should mention that my MOD employed Dad lived directly behind a large Territorial Army center, with munitions depot. The large sheds used to store small arms and an array of Howitzer mobile guns and things to make stuff deader.

    We had actually caused quite a stir that evening, as the barracks emptied and an investigation undertaken. In more modern times I think we would have had our own dedicated satellite and task force.

    My mum did have a few questions as to why we were sat in the dark, TV off when she arrived home from her step aerobics class.

    After this is, airguns were considered to be a far safer hobby.

    .22 is always bestest.
