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.

    Hi, reaper I think you mean the P17 is a copy of the HW40 not the 45.

    And to the original poster of the thread I think the cheapest near to full power pistol is probably the Crosman 2240.

    PCP Pistol has got to be the Brococks AimX Range

    Run close to Sub 6FP Rule - As do Falcon & Expensive Styre Pistols

    There are a few CO2 Single Shots that offer good value for money on Warm Day's

    Webley alecto and considered by some as to be the only pistol accurate enough for short range vermin control. Crosman 2240 is another but although it's considered recoilless it has blow back which will still make it jump in your hand.

    Hw45 but although the gun is notoriously accurate it's very hold sensitive.

    I use an Electo .177, for close range pest control. not the cheapest. but one of the best. Crosman 1377 or 1322 are decent, and cheap. If it is for pest control at close range, I would not bother with Co2, as it does not like the cold weather. atb. Bob.

    Once used an old webley premier air pistol to good effect for clearing an infestation of mice in a shed. The .22 pellets absolutely sledge hammered them it was like shooting rats in a barrel they were everywhere but goes to show that even a pistol doesn't have to be full powered for vermin control in the right circumstances.

    BSA Scorpion now that is a big full power gun and they turn up for under £100 on gun star. On the down side they are big and heavy. After a day of shooting you will know you have had a workout. What are you wanting the gun for? if you intend to carry it about all day go for one of the Crosman guns if not try the springers they are hard to shoot but when you master them it is grate.

    Bang per buck I'd say an Alecto - if I were to buy another air pistol I'd buy one again: plenty of power, accurate and recoilless.
