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.

    Been back to my local gun shop today to have another fondle of the HW100KT.

    I had a look last week and I wasn’t blown away by it, but after having another look today I’ve kinda fallen for it :oops:

    The one they have is in .22 which isn’t my preferred calibre, but I could live with that - I’ve never had a “decent” rifle in .22 before.

    Now .. how good would the .22 be for target shooting, what sort of shot count could I expect and what’s best to use as a backstop to make sure I get no ricochets?

    If your going down the target route I would only go .177… More accurate and cheaper pellets.

    I don’t do paper punching targets - more spinners, cans etc.

    Ricochets are the reason I don’t normally use .22, but with a decent backstop it should be alright

    There's no reason for any calibre to be more 'accurate' than another. A .177 will have a flatter trajectory, that's all. On the other hand a .22 will be more efficient on air usage. I have a .22 and when the air pressure in the rifle drops I simply top it up from a bottle - unlimited shot count.
    I found the KT to suit me better as it handled better than the full length rifles or the carbine with a sporter stock. This will be a personal decision to be made after trying them yourself. Mine works best with JSB Exact pellets.

    I shoot over around 100ft max, so if the .22 can hit a bullseye at that distance then it should be fine.

    I don’t own a bottle, so can’t refil my own guns (I’ll get one one day), so the higher the shot count the better.

    Irrelevant thread now as my local RFd have found me a .177 action to drop into the stock, so I’m having that.

    Thank you :)

    Paper punchers generally use .177 but it’ll be perfectly fine for spinners etc...

    Hell of a gun for just a few spinners though...

    I've got a lovely 100kt in the proper cal 22 it bowls over rats literally flips them with the heads slamming Into the floor, a bit graphic but you get the picture they go down and don't get up.

    Will smash into the spinners like anything learn your range and you will be as accurate with it as anything
