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.

    '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.

Convince Me Not To

    Hi all

    I currently have a fwb 300s, however I have a hankering for a fwb 150 as well. I only shoot the 300 in my garden so is there much difference between the two or is it a bit of an extravagance to have the 2 for a bit of paper punching in the garden.

    thanks

    Jack

    I think you may be on the wrong forum if you want convincing not to buy more airguns;).
    After all how many of us need more than 1 or maybe 2 (I have a dedicated single shot target gun and a multipurpose multishot which would do the target stuff anyway:facepalm:).

    Want is a different matter though and having held a redwolf in the week I can feel the n+1 ratio changing at some point.

    Not a great deal of difference between the two, both excellent rifles to own, lucky you to be on this forum where there are many experts in gun servicing and repairs.
    I have both rifles with peep sights on them, as to my preference ....would not get rid of either of them , infact bought a second 300S. Love the action , love the rifles, both capable of reaching out to my genuine max of 25 yards and have shot them at 30.
    Just check out @telephonepete with his Diana and FWB's , he recons his HW77 is more accurate ( and most probably is, although I can't admit to it)but his passion for the FWB's is not diminished.

    My 150 is more accurate than either of my 300's. They are all very accurate guns as long as you dont expect a 6ft lb gun to work Miracles.I love them equally. Be aware that parts can be hard to obtain for the 150.

    Nope unless we were both chasing the same gun I’d never try and convince you not to. You need it get it bought.

    This has not gone to plan, for some reason I have this image spring to mind with all your comments but I can't think why.:)

    Jackp93,

    Do not be foolish - of course you need a '150 as well as a '300 - everybody knows that :)

    Have fun & a good weekend :)

    Best regards

    Russ
