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.'

  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.

    Bought a barely used gen.1 .25 Marauder off a co-worker last week. Nothing out of the ordinary, but I'm impressed with the accuracy so far with the Benjamin pellets. I have a tin of JSB Kings on the way.

    The ferals have learned to hide in the fabric building. No shooting in there. Roland hasn't figured that out, so it's game on. Anyway, happy to have my first pcp.

    What a beauty. Love the car and the background too. Must visit the States soon...
    What power does this .25 Marauder produce?

    I don't have a chronograph, but from the YouTube videos I've watched, I'd guess around 40 fpe. Chronograph is high on the list, but first, an air tank. Hand pumping is a bit tedious.

    40fpe with .25 = Lovely punching power, When I had a PCP I also had a pump, nearly killed me getting it to pressure!

    25 yard accuracy is impressive with the Kings. Looking forward to 50 yards. Upper hole is three shots using Benjamin dome zero. Then I dialed the correction and put one through the bull. Second photo is the first five shot group. The rest was unsteady, so I'm hoping I can one hole with a better setup.

    Looks a nice hunting tool. :thumb:
    Feel free to show us a many pics as you like of your hunting grounds. I think it's safe to say most of us love to see how things are done in the US. and the landscape too. :)

    Thanks all!

    I don't have many photos of where I'm hunting. Mostly a couple of cow barns.

    I did get the 4K and rangefinder on this weekend. A learning curve, but a lot of potential. Today I got the rf paired with the scope, and a best guess at the profile for the 25.39 Kings. One click of the rf, and the gun was spot on at any of the ranges I tried.

    Having a heck of a lot of fun with this gun. I'd stopped shooting my cheap break barrels. Much more fun to hit what you're aiming at.

    With a dovetail to pic rail adapter, the sight height was right at 2.5". High, but the ballistics calculator adjusts for cant, also. I might look into a better setup later. 20191103_144037.jpg
