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.

Question Gamo PT 85 personal thoughts and suggestions

    I bought a gamo pt 85 recently , its my first experience in Co2 pistols
    I wanted a powerful semi automatic ( capacity of 8 shots) pistol for target shooting and fun. My local seller suggested me the gamo pt-25 or the gamo pt 85 as the best choices for what I wanted. I went for the gamo pt 85 as I felt it a bit better in my hand
    However when I tried it ( I 've shot around 200 pellets on targets) I came up with the following thoughts:

    1. Its a bit loud for my liking
    2. The trigger sucks, it has a lot of lag
    3. The sights are not accurate, the only way I could get a shot in the target was by switching on the aftermarket laser that I bought as accessory, with out the laser aim I was completely pathetic with my shots, I don't know if its just a matter of getting used to the gun and the blowback
    4. I would have prefer a bit more power , it didn't felt that powerful

    As I mention earlier this is my first encounter with a co2 pistol, I don't know if my thoughts-comments are much different than probably more expert people with co2 pistols
    I have the option until the end of this week of taking it back and exchanging it with another pistol, I've been looking around in websites and the only other option I found is the gamo pt 85 tactical although is a much bigger pistol

    What other pistols should I look for? ( I don't mind if they are not blowback, I want them to take 8+ shots capacity, be powerful and also accurate in shooting)

    "I wanted a powerful semi automatic ( capacity of 8 shots) pistol for target shooting and fun and also in a 'worst case' scenario to use it as a defensive weapon in case someone intrudes my house."

    Are you for real? There are no co2 powerful pistols except for EB22 and Crosmans. None of which will ever be recommended for personal protection in the home.
    You sir have no place amongst airgun enthusiasts. Please find another forum where nutters chat about self defence with airguns. :rolleyes:

    1. Its a bit loud for my liking
    Stick an aftermarket silencer on or wear ear plugs.
    2. The trigger sucks, it has a lot of lag
    The trigger has to cock the gun as well as release the shot,it has to do a lot of work,all semi triggers are like this on Co2s
    3. The sights are not accurate, the only way I could get a shot in the target was by switching on the aftermarket laser that I bought as accessory, with out the laser aim I was completely pathetic with my shots, I don't know if its just a matter of getting used to the gun and the blowback
    That's your shooting,shoot from a rest and learn to use iron sights
    4. I would have prefer a bit more power , it didn't felt that powerful
    No co2s of this style carry much power,they are meant for fun,not accuracy,nor power.
