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.

  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.

    Ok, silly question time...

    Once I get this cast off will shooting right handed with a springer be a bad idea with the recoil?

    Would this be the reason to go buy a PCP?

    If the recoil is a issue how long should I wait?

    After a bad motorbike accident i had when i was 25 mate i broke my left leg, both wrists and a collar bone and there is no worst pain than doing a collar bone i can tell you that! it took my mind off the pain of the other broken bones but in about eight weeks my wrists were fine and was just about doing everything again.;) but the funny thing is i feel it in the cold months now. I certainly ain't no doctor mate and it all depends on the nature of the break and how well you older boy's heal?;) but i reckon about six weeks is the norm, so if your trying to put one over on the missus i reckon you should make your choice and get out and get your PCP now before you start feeling better and she see's right through you!:D If it was me in your shoes thou mate i think i would be putting my money towards a crash helmet!:D:D:D Good to see that your alright thou mate albeit afew injury's, It could of been alot worse and after something like that happens to you it does make you sit up and think how easy it is to just get smudged out one day! hence she will not let me have another bike.

    Well I've spoke with BAR, they have offered me a nice deal on a 850, so going to get that on pay day as long as I can get a driver to run me up.

    Also been in touch with a guy in the states for a wooden stock, he's offering them a fair price so depending on cash flow this month I'll have one of them too. but as I cant shoot for the next few weeks I don't mind having to wait.

    and a pic of the wood stock

    recoil? come on, it's an air rifle not a 10 gauge. i'd be more concerned about actually being able to cock the thing with a broken arm.

    As I said, it's the doctors concern as it's not starting knit, there concern is any form of shock could be a issue... besides... it's a exuise for a new gun... and who am I to argue with the NHS's finest :)

    Guess I'll let you know in a week...

    Though I'm most looking forward to getting that wooden stock
