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.

Addicted To 682's

    And I haven't even got a sec2!!!

    After buying & using my Gold E for a while I've found another 682 in a local, but this time in the shape of an x-trap in black.
    Multichoke, raised rib, 29.5" barrels, monte carlo butt, beavertail forend, price seems ok but unfortunately the rfd is closed today.
    And with the petrol crisis I don't really want to drive down there & waste petrol if it turns put to be a right old dog, the shop in question are advising on GT but never put much if a description, rang yesterday to ask but a lady answered and didn't know anything about it so took my number but they never called back.
    I think I might be addicted to 682's & there's plenty of models so I could very well be in trouble with there being no "slots" on a sec2 to stop impulse buying (when I eventually get one).
    Anyone else have a shotgun problem or do you see them as tools & keep control of yourselves?

    Haven’t got a problem other than sneaking the next one into the house, they are all tools but just like buying Snap-on or from the local market you only get what you pay for.

    Nice shotguns are not just tools, they are things to be loved and cherished. I have been known to sleep with mine. The hammerguns can get a bit uncomfortable though. I know a guy who puts his away after the game season and they dont come out till the next one. My guns would sob their little hearts out if I neglected them like this,

    Yeah mines a late one, 2008 iirc but with the schnabel sporter forend.
    I don't know what it is about 682's, I can feel a difference between one & a say a 686 or 687.
    If I get this x-trap I know what's happen next, I'll be on the look out for the skeet one!

    Well for sure you could have worse addictions- personally I love 680 action Berettas. The 682 Gold E adjustable was (and probably still is) my gun of choice for competitions.

    They are tools , but nothing wrong in taking pride of ownership. All of mine are cherished, bit pampered I’d say . I’m a tradesman and once a month I clean and sort out all my tools on my van . Buy the best and look after it .

    Great reliable action especially the original wide action 682 putting a bit more weight between the hands.

    I unfortunately had to scrap one this year as it was shot out and beyond economical repair. It was a coaching gun and had shot about 3/4 million cartridges so owed me nothing.

    Took it out for the first time today for 70 birds, unfortunately the layout was exceptionally hard with all three of us scoring lower than usual, I finished on 35.
    Despite the low score the gun felt so natural & easy to shoulder, i was worried the high rib & raised comb would feel too different & would take a while to get used to being a trap gun.
    So more practice needed at longer range going away birds I think.

    I love beretta shotguns. They fit me well and I definitely shoot better with them. I currently have a 687 Silver Pigeon V. It’s a game gin and the chokes are a bit tight for clays but I use it for everything.
    Beretta make a gun to last. I will buy a gun for clay shooting soon. Definitely another Beretta but not sure what model.

    Depends how much you have to spend, if it's just for clays then a broad assortment would be a 682 gold E, 686 E, 690 sporter or a 692.

    Get one, I can't really pick holes in a 682, or any Beretta for that matter, its just personal preference that makes me go for the 682 in particular, they just fit & balance really well.

    The 682's are really desirable shotguns. Can't remember why but a 687 was my preference back in the distant past when I was considering an under and over Beretta, never got around to getting one as I never had the time to take up clay shooting other than an occasional outting at Christmas with my mates.
    I have made do with my 302 I bought second hand 35 years ago for vermin control on the farm.

    I know next to nothing about them or their history, I just picked up tge Gold E in a local rfd and it felt right, in fact I think it chose me. Like when Harry Potter got his wand!

    I know what you mean as I was handed one by a colleague at the Clay ground and told to try it…:) said he has a 28” one at home he doesn’t use……:) which could prove promising if I can make some room in a cabinet :thumb:

    There's always room in the cabinet, just bought some pellets and my rfd has three 682's in, one being an old 682 fold sporrer with the mirror/glossy finish, really nice gun.
