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.

    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.

    Just wondering about this gun, as it's more 'affordable' than most others.

    There's an opeprtunity to get a pump as Christmas is coming up as well, so that makes getting another rifle seem less silly.

    Would be using down the club (when I can be bothered to join) as winter's almost upon us.

    James.

    Forget the pump....get a bottle.

    Last weekend Jenny and I went to Euroguns at Finningley and there was a guy there knocking out trebor mints at 30 yds...every time. He stopped shooting, got out his pump and pumped up the gun....he then couldn't hit a 20's ciggy packet at the same range he was shakin' so bad. He sat out for about 20 minutes before he got his arms back. This was a young fit guy, not an old geezer like me.

    From what i understand it's well made, looks good and performs well.:) You can get a logun solo in the same price range though, and that is a good rifle
    Just get it in a .22!!!!!!!!!:):):).....PLEASE!!!!!!!!!





    Just kidding. it's a preferance thing.
    if you shoot better with a .177, then stick with it.

    But the S200 has a small tank, and shouldn't be too hard to fill, surely?

    ALSO - Can you leave a PCP charged or do you have to empty it once you've finished using it like with CO2?

    I pump up my FX, and yes don't expect 10mm groups at 30mtrs directly after!
    But a pump will do fine at 12ftpounds.
    always leave a PCP with at least 100bar in it, as this keeps it well sealed. i only get about 15-20 shots from mine, but for hunting that's all i need in a session.
    Get a PCP, you wont regret it...... well you will untill next payday, but after that you will wonder why you waited. I know i did!!:D.
    And yes, if you really have to, get a .177:rolleyes:

    I've had hundreds of guns through my mitts and my S200 is amongst the 3 most accurate guns I've ever used, an A model Mk3 and a Protarget being the other two. If club shooting get a tank as you'll use lots of lead at a club and waiting for the heart rate to calm down after pumping isn't what you want.

    Tanks are cumbersome + you have to go and get them filled when they run out.

    A pump is self contained, that's why I find them appealing.
