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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    well woke up with the plan head over to wakefield collect new 7ltr 300bar filling kit and head to hallifax to try out the rang there as it is a pay as you go set up.
    so jumped in the car with the logun and headed of arived at the gun dealers charging kit purchased they even put my fill addapter onto it for me. and that is where things started to go wrong took gun to there little range to zero my new scope in and the logun was sick after putting it over there chrono power came ot at 6ftlb so gun in for service. arhhhh

    now as i had set out planning to have a days shooting i had a look along there racks and was shown a hatsan at44-10 came with 3-12x50 scope and silencer. 30 mins later i was heading of to halifax to give the gun a work out then the dreaded trafic what should have been 30 min drive turned into 1hr20 mins due to m62 closure and everything trying to work its way around it grrrrr.

    anyway arived at the range was shown around looked nice so payed my money £10 for as long as you want and headed to the 10 meter range to check the zero out and shoot some paper well after about 50 shots i got bored groups where spot on at 10 meters so went upstairs to the longer range which is stuffed with a variety of targets from spinners to disks hanging on chains from the rafters to different bits and pieces to shoot untill you got bored or they closed for me it was the latter i went through 500 pellets and was amazed by the hatsan i was getting 15mm spinners out at 35yards from the off i think i hit every target on the range then a guy came on i got talking with and he found some mints on the range and they where put up at 35 yrds and . it was fun watching the hatsan turn them into dust.

    now its time for tea as i am back there tomorrow for another blast with the new gun and got a bag full of mints to shatter too lol

    Eventful day, glad you got some shooting in. Hatsans seem to get a good press, might have to take a look at them.
    Thanks for sharing.

    yes the guys at halifax where nice and helpful

    and as for the hatsan i am very impressed with it for the price i found it a very well made user friendly and most of all accurate the only down side to it was it just having 2 mags its supprising how fast you can zip through a 10 shot mag with it

    Sounds like you had fun once you got to the Halifax range, it's a nice spot and John, Mike, Dean are spot on and very helpful. I'm sure your service won't be long on your logun but it sounds like the hatsan did the job spot on though :up:

    yep the hatsan is a nice gun very shoot able and accurate as for the logun they said they will try and get it done for next weekend for me but if not it will be the week after but another good point is the guy doing it served his time at logun so rather than going just for the repair of the problem i am having a full service and seal replacement done as they said the repair would be £40-£50 and the service is only £70 and with full guarantee on it so seemed the better option to me. cant fault the service from the gun shop redbeck guns in wakefield very plesant guys and the service i recived was second to non right off to put another few hundred pellets down the range as i went through a tin of 500 yesterday between 1pm and 6pm when it closed yesterday hopefully get some pics of target groups after today
