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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    It is a co2 replica (Webley) that has drawn me back into airguns after a lengthy hiatus.

    I can see where it’s going... it won’t be long before I buy a PPK, then a Peacemaker, followed shortly afterwards by my 4th HW45 (because it’s a “real” pistol... )!!

    I haven’t been on the forum for a long time, but there seems to be a thriving pistol community which is good to see.

    Ahhh.. :coffee: A nice and calm conversation has returned to this thread.. :)..

    Yes Its is one slippery slope.. In 2012 I owned 7 rifles and 1 pistol.. Now nearing end of 2019, I own 3 rifles but the pistol count has risen.. I own a HW44 and 45 which are both great.. But since purchasing my first Co2, Sig Sauer M17 replica.. I'm addicted :facepalm:.. purchased a Colt SAA from Wild Bill :thumb:.. that made me want more! :D.. A Walther CP99 followed and just love it, so much that I have to have a CP88, (in negotiations at mo 4 one).. Also considering a Beretta M92FS, as next addition to my collection.. I like the fact I can use them indoors if requiring a fix, shooting targets 10m away.. I find very rewarding using one with the look, feel and operation of the original.. Regarding PCP rifles ect, they are very very good but tbh the 3 rifles I own do everything I could ever wish for.. Night or day.. Ive see nothing coming out to improve on what I already own!.. I think PCP tech has peaked TBH.. C02's on the other hand are just getting better and better! Always on the look out for the latest replica's.. Some are works of art!.. And mastering shooting them I find very addictive..

    In a nut shell.. Yes I do think there is a much bigger expanding interest in Co2 replica's these days..

    Peace :)..

    I had a day in the field with my CO2 pistols with three friends last summer and a great time was had by all.

    I think that some of the main attractions are that you can 1) pick one and take it with you immediately, 2) the cheap price means it's not too much of a serious decision and 3) there's a fun element to shooting with (what looks like) a real gun with 4) enough poke to destroy alloy drinks cans, but not so much that you can't fire one in the garden.

    Serious fun and safe enough for teenage children to "get the shooting bug". This last point being the most important thing long-term!
