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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.

    Well go for an S400 or S410 if you want to be like EVERYONE else, but the S200 does have good reviews and I know a lot of people who would happily recommend them.

    There are a load of people who got an S200 before any other PCP and still have it.

    S200 is pretty good, S400 is way better. BSA Ultra or Ultra MS are worth a look as well as a first gun... the best advice is to get down to a club and try them, what's right for someone else may not be right for you.

    It shoots pretty well although not close to the Steyr (obviously)and I prefer the magazine on the Ultra... the Falcon stays at home more than the others to be honest.

    Those knocking the S200 are very much in the minority within the sport. The S200 has a fantastic reputation well above it's price level.

    i have had a S200 in .177 cal for 4 years now and it has never missed a beat.:)
    it has accounted for hundreds of rabbits and i use it if and when i enter any club competions.
    the only reason i miss a target is because i am not good enough, because the gun never fails to deliver pin-point accuracy.
    i have never had any power fluctuations either???

    i will not let mine go for a long time, i love it!!!:)

    i have seen the big boys with thier super-toys get beaten by folks using an S200 more than once.

    cant say any more than that !!!

    I use a S200 in competition and at the Redfearns and Emley rounds of the UKAHFT I was 2 and 1 shot respectively off the top score. The shortfall was my doing and not the guns. Last year I won the all comers at the gathering with a S200. I've had many dozens of guns through my mitts in the last several years and the S200 is amongst the three most accurate guns I've owned.
