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.

    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.'

  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.

    So I'm about to order a hatsan 60s due to good reviews on here, and the mattyts and Steve combo acting as hatsan agents :D
    Let's say I have £100 to spend roughly and no synthetic please :)

    What's about?

    Cheers

    The 55/60 is very decent, very very decent, they sell it for twice the price with a Webley badge on it!

    I think you mis read Tinbum's post which said it was either a Hatsan 55 or 60, or a pile of poop!

    You misunderstood! Or more likely I did a bad job of phrasing it........

    For your budget its a Hatsan or​ a pile of poop! The Hatsans are very good value!

    Well if you pay attention to what is writ within these pages, and there is much writ, you will be under no disillusionment about the Hatsan 60s or the 55s, so for your purposes we are talking about the 60s as it is this version of the rifle that is the .22 jobbie.

    I write this next bit with some trepidation, because uttered from your very own keyboard have been many words of love and appreciation for bangsticks emanating from the land of Brum. I have a Hatsan built Webley Longbow SE .22 with that beautiful thumbhole stock, it truly is a thing of beauty worthy of many more glances than the odd old tart from Brum often gets. The build quality is very good indeed, a chap at my club has a Hatsan 55s that he very successfully punches holes in bits of paper all in the right place with, his gun is just as beautiful to my eyes as the aforementioned Webleywotnot.

    He got his for just over 100 sovs, which is quite a bit less than what I got mine for, and it's just as nicely made, so yes, in short, of course "the Hatsan 60s is a nice little rifle"

    The 55s is on my hit list, but I am waiting until I see one in the flesh with a really nice bit of graining on the stock, they are about, but I wont find one on't internet.:)

    I've payed plenty of attention on these pages as thats why I have choosen this rifle but I'm seeing if other options are about.

    The old brummie webleys from what I've owned will always get my vote over newer stuff. Not had any issues with any 'old tart rifles' but have had quite a few with modern rifles.

    I don't know how to react to your posts sometimes as they come across quite condescending to me when I read them.

    To the extent of quoting me twice no less!................Believe it or not it was nought but a light hearted and I hoped humorous post, but never mind, I wont bother to make the effort anymore on these pages, my humour is obviously not custard pie enough for some of you.

    I have had enough to be honest, I already have a moderator following me around to make sure my posts meet with his approval. I have another this morning making ignorant and sarcastic comments towards me for daring to ask what he obviously thought was a stupid question. It seems I also have another forum member who takes great delight in hitting the report button at any post of mine he thinks is offensive to him.

    So seeing as my humour is obviously not appreciated along with so much else I write herein, I think it's time for me to go, for I obviously have no place here.

    Cheerio and thanks for all the fish.

    I bought a very tidy secondhand B20 .22 springer (HW95 clone) for £80 that had been tuned by Lyn Newington (scopeless but inc p/p) 3 years ago. It was all I ever needed out to 30 yards for two good years hunting and got me great results on the range or in the field. I then got an AA s400 and that was that..:D

    The B20 shoots as smooth as silk at 11.4ftlb and for the money I could never complain......:up:

    Well it will be a great shame if you let the comments of one person make you leave the forum. A forum such as this only thrives when humour abounds in its many forms.
