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.

    Hey everyone.

    Firstly, sorry if I've posted in the wrong forum! I was going to post in the introduce yourself forum but I had some questions as well so throught it would be best in here!

    My dad was in the army and when he came out he did a lot of air gun shooting. I remember being a kid wondering through the forrests with him and really enjoying it and I've been looking for a new hobby and thought this might be nice.

    So, from what I've read I'd need the following.

    Rifle
    Scope
    Bag
    Pellets

    There are a couple of rifle clubs near me. I'd love to do what my dad did in the late 80s and early 90s and just wonder about the local woods with the rifle shooting anything that wonders past but I don't think that's allowed anymore (or even was then:D) so I think I'll be signing up to one of the rifle clubs and hopefully meet some people who'd be able to help me find places to shoot rabbits etc.

    I don't want to invest masses as I might not take to it so I after reading some good reviews I was thinking about getting the http://www.targetsports.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=26_58&products_id=699 Edgar Brothers 60.

    I realise it's cheap. But it seems ok given the reviews.

    I don't have any ideas about maintainance and if someone would be able to suggest an ok scope that would be smashing?

    Many thanks :)

    Ash

    The Edgar Bros is a good basic gun BUT pop along to your local club BEFORE you buy anything. Most club shooters will let you try their guns if you but ask and you may decide to spend a little more on a better gun. As to what scope depends on what you want to shoot but a good basic scope at a cheap price is the Nikko Stirling Airking 3-9x42 at £56.95 here

    Halfway down. It comes with a one piece mount as std which whilst not brilliant will get you started. The scope is far superior to most at anything under a ton. If you give us a location we could point out a club.

    the gun looks very nice! however i would recommend doing what Daren said and ask around for some test shots and also i noticed the rifle your looking at has a rubber butt plate and you might look into a rubber attach on as the plastic may crack after sometime. how ever that is just my experience and i have never shot a Edgar so i don't really know what kind of quality they are. also I don't know if you get Beeman rifles over there but you may want to look into a nice Beeman such as the R9. I have heard amazing reviews of these guns and they are extremely sturdy well built and hard shooting rifle, and i believe you can pick them up with a qulaity scope included with it. as far as rifle bags go im sure you know anything that feels like quality and is a well known brand will work fine.
