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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.

A Mythical Rifle!...Now I Own One.

    Now I'm not saying its the holy grail of air rifles but for me I just needed it out my system. For month I've been looking for an elusive Theoben Élan .22 due to only making a handful. Im not sure it will ever be a classic PCP or a sound investment but there is very little information on the web which made it more intriguing to me as I've always been a fan of the Rapid 7 it was a must.
    After missing one due to the seller thought it was worth way more than I wished to pay I came across one on Tuesday. The guy selling it was reluctant but his needs meant it had to go. Apart from a few marks on the trigger gaurd its totaly origonal and mint condition. After a price was agreed I collected it on Friday. Ill do a review after I've had a play but first impressions are wow it's the lightest PCP I've ever held.
    Unfortunately I was unable to shoot it on Friday due to helping on Sharon's allotment, but managed to put it over the crono in the back garden with an average of 11.6 flb. Over 12 shots. So I had high hopes for this morning but rain stopped play.
    Sun came out this afternoon and i headed over to my brothers house to kill two birds with one stone, daughter could play with her cousins I could plink in the field. The plinking did not go to plan, my nephew had a hole other idea. I did not get a look in. What can I say about how the Élan shoots, well 50/60 shots is fine for hunting but not when the family want to play. Nephew is left handed but did not stop him, his veridic is "Awesome"

    Had another great afternoon but still haven't played with my new toy. Bummer!
    Theoben Élan .22 came with 2 unused 7 shot mags.

    Looks just like a mk1 rapid with a different stock. Is the élan regulated ?
