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.

    How many do you have, so far I have 3, Diana 280k, HW50s and Hatsan 60S. Do you use them all, or does your favorite one get all the attention? Maybe you have rifles for specific tasks, short range ratting, Ft, plinking? would love to hear your stories. I think I may end up being a favorite most of the time, but cant stop buying type:D

    6 at present, HW97kt, HW98, HW99S, HW100kt FSB, Air Arms S400, BSA Meteor. Don't get much chance to use any of them to be honest, but I like a tinker and keeping grubby finger marks off them but I will have a period where they'll all be out a good bit over a pup,e of weeks then back in their holders. Hence... I'm a **** shot :(

    Just 2 now and will never need another.
    A prosport for plinking and static shooting over decoys and rabbit warrens, nearly always with a seat and padded sticks. An S200 for walkabout shooting and lamping, again used with sticks but so much lighter for walking with. Don't need anything else.

    We have four rifles

    HW100k .177 (hers)
    Daystate Regal .177 (hers)
    Sumatra Stinger .22 (mine)
    TX200 .177 (mine)

    At one point I think I had about a dozen, but that was getting out of control! These four are staying, others may come and go along the way, but we have all bases covered with these.

    Just three for me - (as listed in my signature).
    I tend to use the two HW97's fairly frequently, the S200 on the other hand is seldom used these days.

    Just three for me.
    An HW100 KS in .177 for hide shooting.
    An HW100 KT in .22 for rat shooting.
    An HW100 full length in a CS700 stock for shooting rabbits off a bipod.
    Lots of add ons like Rowan triggers and cylinder bands, Hugget shrouds and silencers and A&M cylinders so that they're just how I want them.
    I did have an HW95k with a tinbum kit fitted but I sold it to a mate because he wanted it more than I did.

    Hi Dave

    I committed the cardinal sin of pointing a gun at something that I shouldn't have!!

    When I bought a Crosman 338, I put a cart in and shot a few *** then akll the gas leaked away so I put another cart in, shot a couple of *** then emptied the mag, trouble was that i'd forgotten that steel BB guns have a magnetic breech to stopp the *** rolling out if the gun is pointed down!
    I put the gun away for a week and fully expected it to be empty of gas so I pulled the trigger but put my hand in front to see if there was going to be even the slightest bit of gas come out!!

    It hadn't leaked and there was still a BB in the breech :eek::eek:

    I was amazed that a cheap BB gun could do so much damage! There was a neat round hole in my finger and claret all over the place :eek:

    Had to have the BB surgically removed, It had entered the pad and somehow travelled around the bone!!

    Strangeley there was absol;utely no pain at any stage up to it healing completely!

    The nick was where the doc in A&E tried to make a bigger hole to extract it!! He failed but the young lady surgeon had it out in no time! :cool:

    Hi Gassy

    The illuminated ret in the Rhino os a central dot and a horizontal shot line either side, there's a pic of it on the side of the scope! :up:

    I was told I had G.A.S. (Gun Acquisition Syndrome- alas there's no cure :( )

    Bb's has been censored out!! :D

    Cheers, John :)
