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.

    Hi Guys,

    I was just wondering which model you guys have gone for in the HW100 and why? I'm thinking of going for one soon but can't decide what to go for? I'm edging towards the KT model. I've never had a PCP before.

    Thanks

    I tried all of the range and settled on the KT as, in my opinion, it was the best handling of all. You really do need to try them for yourself though.
    Some people prefer the full length versions for the increased shot count but I've never run out of air and keep my bottle in the car boot for a top up if needed. I have tried a good few of the competing rifles but the HW is, for me, the best all rounder out there.

    What will you use it for? If target only then the HW101.

    I'm having the same conundrum, I'm definitely waiting a couple of months to see the new stock options just so I have no regrets if I buy now, and I will go for the KT as I really like the feel of my 97KT but this is a personal thing, I also prefer the look of the FSB but as discussed on another thread it doesn't seem the best option as it's slightly noisier and you have to pay extra if you want a moderator. There is a big saving if you go for the HW101 as it's a single shot and for the range I prefer a single shot as I find it more relaxed and with the mag I rattle through pellets but I'd still go for the 100 and buy the single shot adaptor, I've been using two HW100's at the range and I love them, not used a FSB but the others are super quiet. But I think if I was in the shop in a couple of months I'd buy the HW100 laminate thumbhole stock FSB... My preference only.

    Had both kt and t but kept the kt far better balanced imo and even better with a&m cylinder and more shots with it , you will not go wrong with any of the formats of the HW100

    I went for the KT, but think quickly, I've heard prices are going up at the end of the month.

    I'm still not keen on the laminate stuff, don't know what it is I guess it just looks a bit weird to me. But I believe the FSB is noisier than the other models so that kind of defeats the object.

    Doesn't the Cheshire Gun Room have a selection? They seem to have plenty at shows.

    Because you'll end up a Hull Cartridge snob! You'll look down on everyone with another manufacturer's gun especially the more expensive guns wondering why they spent so much when you have the best thing to throw a few grains of lead.
    You'll be the BMW driver of the airgun world! :bolt:
