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.

  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.

    I wish i could afford a decent rifle and i suppose when i get my FAC i will have to. I have a diana 34 .22 and a cometa 300 .22 and i have taken countless squirrels, pigeons, crows and magpies with the cometa ( havent really had chance with the diana yet ) I keep hearing people rant on about how good all these rifles are so i imagine im going to be loving it and killing everything in sight when i get a pcp. I do think that rifles are seriously overpriced these days when you look incomparison with 5 - 10 years ago.

    Many moons ago I used to manage a very up-market camera shop in Paddington, West London. We used to sell a lot of really high quality cameras to the type of tourist who wears three or four of them round his neck, and we referred to this as 'middle-aged male jewellery':D

    I thought PCP's were expensive, until this week when one of the lads at work got his shotgun ticket. Jeez, there is some serious money involved there! Luckily it looks like he has got a good second hand Beretta, but even then it was twice the price of my Airwolf and even more new! I wouldnt even want to think what a tailor made Purdey would cost:eek: I think I would rather spend all that money on extra shells. wouldnt it make them green having spent a serious amount of money on a shotgun to have some oik tip up next to you with an off the shelf gun and wipe the floor with you:D

    Purdey's are an investment, most shotgun shoots that have them, dont use them. :D:up:....you buy them for a lot of cash, you sell them, for a lot more$$$:D

    Yep a bit of research and shopping around pays out in the end. Though I do get the best I can comfortably afford in boots or technical clothing. They are areas where you definately get what you pay for however it does pay to avoid some of the more fashionable brand names:rolleyes:

    re pro sport against hw77,ive had bothe now and the pro sport loses out to this rifle hands down ,id say its because the previouse owner has tuned it to perfection and looked after it so well,or is it just me ive found the perfect shooting companion,as ive said ive had most top pcs and there lovely guns,but most people can use a pc not many can use springers to shoot as good as a pc ,i was brought up with springers from a very young age ,hey but let every one make there own mind up what they shoot ,saying im very happy with my investment for so little money,!150 wouldnt even get me my bottle and hose so im streets ahead already.
