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.'

  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.

    I currently own an old theoben in bad condition that broke today and a gamo shadow 1000. The theoben has practicaly had it, and the gamo is great but i want somthing with multishot and ive shot a few rifles and i seem to be more on the money with the recoilless ones. Im looking to buy it second hand as i do not have a large budget, around £200. Im looking for a .22 because ive always used them for hunting and i find them great :up:. It needs to be able to easily take down a rabbit because they are all i really shoot, well targets aswell but rabbits are my main concern.

    any advice would be appreciated.
    Alex.

    It will be better to try and find a AAS4XX and if it is not multi shot it really doesn't matter. Hunting is mostly a one shot game, i am sure you know this already. Best place i think is for you to go to a gun shop that has a second hand one in stock. The gun shop when they trade them, get them next to nothing, so what ever he is asking you will be able to lower his price. Get your father to go with you and let him handle the payment.

    look on the second hand market if you are on a buget but make sure you go for a good reliable make like Air arms, BSA, there are loads more but just ask the shop keeper they will tell you what to look at

    Yes, ask the shop keeper, but don't take what he says as 100% reliable fact, remember he may be trying to sell you something he wants to get rid of.

    Air Arms and Theoben make good PCP rifles, BSA models can also be good but watch out for the regulated ones.

    The choice is really yours.

    nothing wrong with bsa models there have been some bad reviews but i think they are sorted now

    if you get a bsa its best to go new as they are not as reliable as an S410 for example

    I thought the BSA Ultra, Superten and Hornet had the bad regulator that's designed for higher power, or have they stopped using those now?

    the hornet and ultra are the ones that can be a bit dodgy

    the bull barrel one (forgot the name) is the one thats a bit touchy at low power

    the super ten is the best PCP they have.
    the scorpion works fine too
