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 all,

    Are there any magazines devoted to air rifles? I've looked in WHSmith last few times I've been in there and can't see anything at all.

    If so, what are they called and where do you buy them from? I don't want to subscribe to any as I find magazines can get fairly repetitive after a while.

    Thanks
    Dan

    Can't find any mags, where you looking ? there not in the porn section, although some refer to guns in the gallery as porn.

    Air gun shooter, gun mart and a couple of others, but I've drawn a blank on what their name is atm. lol

    If you can't find what your looking for, ask an assitant or fish around, hint hint.

    Depends if your local store has a demand for it. My local Spar stocks both Airgunner and Airgun world. All of the local Tescos and Sainsburys don't.

    yes very true, but I do like to see what's coming out in the near future, but I will say I don't take what they say as gospel, never seen a truly bad wright up any mag :shrug:,I've been getting a airgun mag since the mid 80's ,but I have stop buying both mags now (AGW and AG) because found that the both end up with the same gun to review all be it the month after :( so was a waste of money, I just buy AG now as it has more stuff regarding HFT in it (and picture's of me :D) , will just add sporting shooter has airgun stuff in it too:up:

    stopped buying mags when I joined here. have learnt more on this forum in a few months than I did in 30 years of mag reading. the mags just dont give honest revues... everything they test gets good revues and quite frankly its bo#####s they wont give a bad revue because they loose the advertising revenue. just sales catalogue's thats all they are mate save your money for kit or something. I havnt bought a shooting mag for years.

    In answer to the question there are 3 dedicated Airgun Magazines currently on the Market

    Air Gunner
    Airgun World
    Airgun Shooter

    Air Gunner and Airgun World are from the same publisher and as previously mentioned do appear to contain very similar content at times

    Gunmart and Shooting Sports are two other magazines that cover airguns / reviews along with other types of rifles. Gunmart produces The Sporting Airgun Handbook which comes out I don't know how often

    My local Gun Shop carries magazines, as does 3 of my local WH Smith. I can also but them in my local Asda and Tesco. In fact in Tesco at the moment Air Gunner and Airgun World both carry a free magazine as a promotion.

    My preference is Airgun Shooter, the newest of the 3. Better review, more balanced coverage.

    just to repeat what others have said the mags never give a bad review.....and there are some BAD rifles out there. The worst critisisim they generaly come out with is "oh i dont like the shape of the trigger"or "the trigger guard" :rolleyes:..imo opinion if you still want to buy a mag Airgun Shooter is the best of the bunch.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Its just for general interest really, something to read while on the train etc. I always buy mags on a whim when I need them. Mountain biking mags are the same, full of advertiser propaganda and rarely a bad review, but sometimes worth buying for the features / instructables etc.

    Having looked in 3 to 4 local newsagents / supermarkets and whsmiths recently I can see none of the titles mentioned.
