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.

    You've got Allcocks in Stourport and Durrants in Worcester every one has their preference.
    In my opinion try to avoid Wildcat rifles/ Custom shop in Droitwich - they seem to be a fullbore & Shotgun shot that sell a few airguns.
    Never realy intersted when I've been in there, expensive as well - charging £9.99 for HW FTT pellets when there were £7.00 elsewhere.

    I use Shooting-Supplies in Bromsgrove only because I am close to it and only for pellets or a cylinder refill. I have never been granted a good deal or discount despite buying several guns over the last two years. Nice enough lads there who unlike many other places don't force an opinion on you when you are after something. Most of my deals are on this forum.

    Thanks milek, yes they do seem a good bunch and they did have a 1 month old lightening xl with scope for £270 which was tempting but pushing my budget. I can see this is going to end up like when you look for a car, by the time you've bought one your budget has doubled :rolleyes:

    Avoid Durrants,very overpriced.
    Allcocks are okay price wise but dont always have much stock.
    Shooting Supplies okay,more stock,cheaper than Durrants but dearer than Allcocks for some stuff.
    DAI in Merry Hill,lots of second hand stuff and new but they dont normally have anymore stock than what is on the shelf at the time.
    Allsports in Gloucester,can be expensive but they do have some second hand and sometimes some more unusual stuff.
    Been in Wildcat once for about 30 seconds.

    Taken on board mattyts, that's why forums are so important to noobies. Its so easy to get talked into the wrong thing in a shop. Can I ask why avoid the lightening?

    Have a read of this;

    http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums/showthread.php/178411-Modern-BSA

    They have a lot of parts made abroad in Spain etc,they are no longer the great British company they once were 50 year ago,TBH I think a lot of their current customers are either buying their PCPs (which are actually pretty good) or are returning to the sport and recognizing the BSA name and buying a lightening or similiar thinking it will be the same quality as the guns produced in the past,which they aren't.

    I Shot mikmons 97 on sunday. Very nice ( I had his other one a few weeks back)
    But what I logged on to say was Allcocks have gone up in my estimation. Just picked up a pair of BKL double strap monuts for £35. Cheaper than just about anywhee else I've seen them.
