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.

Beretta Kick Off

    Hi, I am looking to get a new Beretta A400 Explorer Light. It will be used by me for rough shooting but also occasionally by my wife and daughter for clays.

    Recoil has never bothered me, but I am unsure if I should be getting the kick off system fitted to benefit the handling by the ladies.

    I am concerned it will feel strange having the stock moving when its fired and maybe afect my shooting.
    Has anybody used it?

    What do you think, good or bad idea?

    Thanks.

    Chris

    In theory I agree with your idea. The problem is my wife doesn't allow me to keep the guns in my own cabinet hence I have to keep them in a mates safe and there is only space for 1 more gun.

    Hence the Semi Auto needs to be a compromise.

    Is it best with or without the kick off.

    I am working on it. First phase was to get her a shotgun certificate, second phase was to get my daughter a shotgun certificate. Now my daughter is really keen on the clays, hence the gun has had some overnight stays.

    Sounds like a well thought out strategy. As baldrick from black adder would say ' I've got a cunning plan... '

    Ots all part of my plan as is getting a semi auto that the ladies can shhot with as well. Hence back to the question is the kick of a good idea or just a gimmick?

    I have it on good advise that if you buy a "Kick off" system beretta, don't have a second gun that hasn't got kick off.


    You get used to it you see, I was told to avoid it as I looked at the Explor also, but I ended up buying a Browning Maxus which has very little recoil for a 12 its more like a 20 shooting clay shell, apart from I shoot a minimum shot these days of 32grm 6 for pigeons.


    If you intend to get an explor with kick off for clays I see no reason it wont be good at what it does, as I have beretta over and unders and have for years I rate anything Beretta as very good.


    I have a problem now switching to my Beretta clay gun from the semi Auto as Im so used to the semi, I would probably straighten most layouts with my semi but its a 26" 3.5" magnum in full on cammo so hardly a clay gun, I doubt it would shoot 21gram fibre wads, where as a Beretta probably will.

    On balance I decided it was best to go for the A400 xplor light with the kick off fitted as my wife was commenting how a normal O/U 12g was hurting her shoulder.

    Gun ordered today so we should be able to try it out on some clays at the weekend.

    Thanks for the guidance and replies.
