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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    As a complete newbie, myself and her whom must be obeyed are venturing into the mysterious world of air rifles. A Gamo Phox and a BSA SE for target shooting on local ranges. How are Bipods attached? Are Gun Bag rests any good and an idea of costs and brands please

    Different "rests" have their pros and cons. Bags are solid and change shape to whatever platform you're shooting from, but are heavy.
    Tripods are lightweight but can be too high if shooting from a bench. Bipods are fixed to the gun so no lugging extra kit, but then its attached to the gun so you may need multiple bipods?
    They normally fit with a Quick Detach stud (QD) or picatinny rail that can be mounted under the stock.
    QD studs are fine as long as fitted properly and Harris type bipods fit them bob on.

    I like bags. I fill mine with wood pellet cat litter.
    Sand is too heavy, polystyrene too light, clay cat litter creates dust.
    Bags are £10, litter can be had for £3.

    The bagels are a good idea, but so are bipods/tripods.

    What might suit you and your good lady may be different. You best bet is to go along to the local range, have a look see and ans if you and sit and shoulder the rifle. That will give you a better idea.

    I’d buy one front bag fill it with whatever, plastic pellets would be my choice

    A little better than the cat litter option, but not subject to getting soggy when wet. Shoot with it, take turns see how it goes. Don’t fill to fill it needs to mould it’s self to the front end of the rifle.

    Enjoy the experience encourage each other, don’t get to competitive to start with and have realistic expectations.

    Above all enjoy and have fun
