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.

    hello all. (by MSP in the title i mean multi stroke pnuematic) this is a bit of a roundabout question


    with a springer your meant to hold it in the "artillery stance" basically have your forehand as a rest rather than grabbing the gun tightly. also it should be placed on the balance point of the rifle.

    does the same apply to pnuematics.... or should a i use a different technique?

    secondly then i ask, as i wish to mount a bipod.....where exactly should i mount it?

    as in should it be on the balance point or further forward...? or does it even matter?

    thanks in advance for your advice
    jim

    Hold it as tight or as loose as you want,it's not going to move anywhere,it dosen't recoil.

    The front mounting point will have to go somewhere you can fit the stud for the bipod to clamp onto without it causing damage to any of the metalwork, it will probably be just in front of where your hand goes on the forend. The bipod legs should fold forward, towards the muzzle, so allow for this when you're sizing it up.

    as matty said, its recoiless, plus I can't see how you can mount a bi-pod on a pump up

    You can't really mount it on the pump arm,nor could you mount it on the barrel as the cocking arm moves across there,the only place you could put it is the tiny little space between the trigger and cocking arm.

    Warn:
    to urge or advise to be careful

    Threaten:
    cause (someone or something) to be vulnerable or at risk

    Huge difference IMO.

    Warned. A threat is something that might happen; a warning is a statement of what will happen.
