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.

    Hi people,
    I'm currently really liking the look of the following.

    Logun s16.
    gunpower strom.
    fx verminator.
    I also quite like the Rohm desperado but the combination of 6ft/lbs and co2 have sort of put me off that one.
    I shall mainly be doing targets and general plinking and I'm looking at .177
    I like the idea of having multi-shot capability and much as I like the fx I can't really justify £650 and the additional cost of charging eqpt.

    so what's peoples experiences of these rifles? recommendations? dislikes?
    thanks
    Whitey

    I would say go for it and get an AA S410...either calibre but obviously .177 is the best !!

    Have been known to have many problems, what the current versions are like i do not know.

    Gunpower Storm
    The long barrel version of the stealth, need tuning from new to make them consistant.

    FX Verminator
    FX guns will beat the other two all day long.

    Get yourself a Daystate airwolf in .22 big shot count. :D

    Or you could look at the Weihrauch HW100T/HW100K/HW100S - these are meant to be some of the best and they're not that expensive. Just a thought.

    cheers for the input.

    I much prefer the tactical look of the three mentioned rather than the traditional wood sporter type weapon.
    I'd probably have the verminator tomorrow if I could justify the £650 asking price plus the additional £150 of charging equipment. :(

    I like the loguns option of multishot capability for plinking entertainment but I have no local gunshop and nobody local to me has any of the three.

    don't want to make one of my typical really expensive mistakes :rolleyes:

    I make those too ... sometimes I buy on impulse which is never good when you're talking hundreds of pounds.

    I was looking at the Gunpower range a while back - after some research I found that they're really not very good out of the box. If you want the Gunpower, be prepared to spend a little more to tune it up to standard.

    The Logun S-16 has mixed reviews, some say it's unreliable at best.

    I don't know anything about FX as they're not as openly available in the UK as other brands, but people say they're good.

    I think someone on these forums has the Verminator, maybe you could ask them about it :confused:

    Make sure you do your own research too before you spend so much on a new gun :D

    i have an S410 in .22 and it has never let me down i get a kill 99% of the time and one hole groups are prety normal for this gun.

    the AA s410 is boring because you know exactly what its going to do and that it wont fail so theres no exitement before pulling the trigger.

    it's too good (in .22)

    If your hunting, go.22!
    That there verminator is what i wanted. Did loads of research and came to the conclusion that a fill kit is a definate must, and the verminator is the dogs knackers!.
    Go with the verminator, Then let me know if i should still get one.:D
    (I'm partial to the fact that it is a takedown)
