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.

    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.

    I was wondering how much you all are shooting monthly. Not always
    easy to know but, just a guess on how many pellets?

    Right now I go through about a tin of 500 a month. I don't get to shoot
    as much as I would like due to working. I try to get 100 shots when I
    do practice.

    The past 3 months... 20 or 30 pellets if I was lucky.

    When I first started air gunning in 2011 and got a PCP,sometimes 2-3 tins a week.

    Anything from 1 to 8 tins a month depends on weather and life commitments. :)

    A PCP with a tank a few yard away from you is pretty consuming of pellets once you get going. :D

    On the other hand,I only do about 200-300 pellets in a session with a springer.

    Ditto, and a fine club it is too, about 250 pellets a morning for me, though my back is killing me so won't be that many in the morning

    A tin can last me a month again depending on weather/work/family, if I had a PCP I think I'd use a single shot adaptor for a more relaxed shooting as I see guys rattling mags into the target in real short spaces of time without removing their eye from the scope.

    I averaged a minimum of 15,000 a year for the first 14 years of my FT hobby. Last year I only shot maybe 5,000 and my form is off. You have to sling the lead to stay good with a springer. I shot 15,000+ in less than a year with my Air Arms Pro Elite in .22 FAC when I first bought it. The FT bug bit just after that and I sold the .22 PE and it's .177 twin.

    I buy a bulk order of 5K pellets and so far they've lasted me the year, near enough. Bear in mind that I shoot at a club every Monday (not bank holidays) and occasional plinking sessions in the back garden.

    The same can be said of recharging my 7 litre (300 bar) dive bottle since the HW100 only really gets charged for the club and has a small capacity cylinder.
