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.

  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.

    Firstly I am new to air gunning although did shoot Hand guns before the goverment decided we were not fit to do so. I am now retired and looking for another hobby besides golf and will be joining a shooting club in the near future
    So asking you fellows which air rifle would you say is the better for both target shooting and also hunting which I hope to do when I become more profficient also are carbines just as economical as the longer barrell on air
    and would you reccomend any other rifle in the same price range all advice very welcome
    Regards

    The R10 is good gun and you get a good lup of shots from it with the buddy bottle but there has been quite a few issues with them,I would prefer the S510 because it's a great gun,still a good amount of shots,AA also have an excellent repuation for great guns,nnearly all pcp shooters have owned an S4xx series at some point,it isn't regulated but still very consistent...

    there is a great review here; http://www.airgunb*b*s.com/showthread.php?566293-Air-Arms-S510-Review

    *remove the asteriks,they are there because this forum has banned linking to other forums.

    I would say the 510, but that's because i really don't rate the R10 at all, some will say they're good and some will say they're bad, each to their own, but i'd go for the 510 ;)

    My advice would be to go to reputable airgun dealer and try as many as you can. Consider your budget and buy the one that fits you. People will always point you in the direction of what they own as the best when what's best for you is the one that fits.

    ok you asked for it :p

    get the R10 as long as its a mk2 all should be fine
    and it is regged and much better shot count

    yes the 510 has a reasonable shot count and is reasonable consistant and is a good gun
    it still has the flaw it is not regged so it has a power curve

    or just ignore everything and see if you can find a 2nd hand daystate mk4 or airwolf in your budget and never look back :D

    r10 all the way for me
    tried the s510 did not like it,do not like the side lever
    have an s410 as much as i love it its a git to cock and load and needs a firm hand ;)
    the r10 is slick to cock and load :)
    i love my r10 :)
    Dont like gaystates or pieracks :)
    Lot of folk slag the r10 but there are more good r10's than bad ones you only ever hear about the bad ones from the usual suspects
    My r10 is outshooting my mates airwolf and it cost half the price :)

    Not to annoye any one but I have a R10 mk1. Love the gun but as said before try them yourself and them make your decision based on that. Many folk buy on recomendation and then can't get on with them.

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    i am a confirmed air arms man, but would love an r10 if funds allow. there's pro's and cons to either choice, but when it boils down to it, the choice should be made when you've picked up, shouldered and handled both rifles mate.
    both are up to the jobs you want them for, different shotcount, but as accurate as each other, but when you pick them up, one will probably feel better than the other - this will be the one for you.
