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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Hi, I'm Dave from Hampshire. I just brought myself my first air rifle. I pick up a 1989 Weihrauch HW77 with a Edger Brother 3-9 50mm scope all in very good condition. I plan to shoot a few target in the back garden, and then see where it takes me.
    I would be interested in knowing any places I could go to shoot, even if it's just to set up my targets at a longer range. If any I could help with that I would be every grateful.
    And a happy new year to everyone! :D

    Welcome aboard! You'll not go wrong with the HW77 for sure.

    I'll let the others closer to you respond on possible shooting grounds. Having lived in Camberley for 8 years the only place I can think of is Bisley which may not be too far from you?

    Thanks for the welcome guys.
    I did a bit of research before a brought one, and I kept coming back to the under lever weihrauchs. I was lucky to see one on FB which happened to be a two minute drive from me. It has had a new springe,seals and polish, so the internals are all in great condition. I might have a go at cleaning up the outside at a later date. But for now I just want to use it. I will sort out a picture later.
    Mart, the guy I brought the rifle off mentioned Bisley, is that near Woking?
    I know I will have a hundred and one question later, but for now I will wait until I get the target holder & targets ...... well I might just have a shoot or two at some cans. LOL

    Hi Dave and welcome to the forum mate and also to shooting, HW77 excellent rifle and a very good choice, if the weight isn't a problem for you then there isn't a better spring gun out there. I have had mine since the 80's which I bought new it has had a lot of use and has never let me down, lent it to my brother 2 years ago and haven't seen it since he loves it too.
