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.

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.

Good news Are Co2 Pistols Are Starting To Get Popular Again ?

    What with our AGF unofficial co2 target comp and many members buying and showing off their pistols and today whilst in my favourite airgun shop I think co2 pistols are becoming ever so popular again.
    The shop was actually really really busy and when I spoke to the owner (nice lady she is) she told me that by far, the replica co2 pistols are the ones moving out the door quite fast. She said they had sold 11 pistols today.

    co2 pistols are great for informal plinking whether in the house, garage, loft or garden. They reasonably safe (once the handgun basics are taught) and reasonably accurate for plinking and close target work. But most of all they are great fun to shoot, to handle and to cherish.

    Co2 is cheap enough in my opinion. I buy 50 at a time for 13 quid and if you buy pellets or targets at the same time, the postage is worth it.
    The pistols veary in price and you can have just as much fun with one that cost £50 to one that costs £300.

    So if you want some man fun, get a co2 pistol and enjoy your shooting again. Join our informal AGF competition and just have fun.

    Great collection Andy! :thumb:

    I did like my S&W 4" .586 and 92FS but they weren't what I required for my interest which had changed after 10 years, so I sold them to help fund my r10.

    I love mine, I built a little range in the garden and set myself time challenges including reloads and so on. A trip to the range for some serious shooting is always a good day, but an hour bashing reactive targets or seeing how fast I can reload a pair of peacemakers is just a lot of fun.

    It’s the replicas that rekindled my interest.

    Apart from being good fun..I think they are So pleasing to the eye! Mine take pride of place in my man-cave.
    I have a Baretta, but it just doesn't have the charisma of the Colts!

    Nice. But that's it. These pistols are so pleasing to the eye and to hold. It's a man thing I think because my wife looks at me stupid when I am caressing my sidearms. :up::D

    I think a lot of it is the affordability. A nice semi auto is well under £200 or less than £100 used. There is no doubt that pointing and blasting is a giggle.

    I also think it's a nostalgia thing, bringing back memories from childhood playing cowboys and indians, but now with these realistic looking guns, it makes that roleplay a lot more fun :D

    I’ve got zero interest in firing co2 pistols,

    but the replica collecting thing definitely appeals

    I have few pistols, so does my gf, also knives n axes etc.. yup not the standard kinda wench you meet ;)

    I find guns like the peacemaker and Schofield have a much greater aesthetic look than say a Colt 1911, even tho I love the look of them too...

    Did they become unpopular ? Or just die off a bit on here ?

    I think there always be a good following for them , they are relatively cheap , and have that pick up and take home today appeal in RFD’s .
