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.

    Longbow for me but it's more a personal preference thing than from any definite difference between them. That choice assumes a Brummie made gun not the Turkish offering. If it's a comparison to the Turkish gun then I'd opt for the HW.

    I mean the original ones. The newer Turkish ones aren't the same guns; they can't compare.

    The Longbow is also very high quality and has superior features over the 95 e.g. it's a carbine and has a 1/2'' UNF thread allowing you to fit any silencer of that type. It also has a BETTER SAFETY and looks far, far nicer.

    http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews116110.html Oh dear, only 8/10.

    http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews4793.html Look! 9.3/10

    Enough said.

    Those reviews aren't fair.

    The HW has only been reviewed by two people, where as the Longbow has been reviewed by 27!!

    You can't possibly use that as any kind of proof when they haven't been reviewed by the same amount of people.

    Who knows? The next 25 people to review the HW could all give it a 10, which would but its rating up to something like 9.97 or something.

    Yeah maybe, I just wanted to post that :D

    But seriously now, the HW95 doesn't come in walnut as far as I know. I don't think any Weihrauch's do apart from the 100.

    paperbag, the longbow is a good gun, but try firing one
    its got more spring twang than zebidee.

    the 95 on the otherhand is real smoothe, and one of the easiest springers to work on and tune up.
    its a classic, why do you think its so popular after all these years!

    Actually I have been inviting members, but not for this poll.

    I suppose getting people to vote for what I want would be cheating, I'm not doing that.

    It's a good idea though, maybe I will next time :up:
