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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Not any more. Without wanting to stir up the old argument again I found I became a bit complacent/lazy when shooting PCP and they took some of the man v's machine joy out of my shooting so I went 100% springer.

    Saying that, my next purchase (hopefully this week) will be a CO2 XS79 - so much for my principles eh? - but that's the only compromise I'm going to make......... never say never :D

    I'm in exactly the same boat!!!!
    I have used springers for the last 20 years and just, 2 weeks ago, bought my first PCP bottle and all....

    I always said PCP rifles were clinical, soulless pieces of rubbish that were best left for the range.....
    How wrong could I have been, when ratting there is nothing better than my little ultra, in the first week of ownership I was still reaching for my TX but begrudgingly taking the Ultra instead..... Now I seriously love my PCP for its power, accuracy point ability and lightness!!!!

    I still love my springers and the satisfaction that comes with a good grouping from a "proper" rifle but I'm slowly being won over by its pneumatic powered cousin!!!!!!

    Both types of propulsion have their strong points, use them for what they do best and enjoy both?
    I use an S200 for most of walkabout shooting, it's light, easy to use at night and the low shot count isn't a problem.
    For static or hide shooting over decoys, long evenings sat over a rabbit warren or just plinking then the Prosport is king.
    I admit to enjoying the PCP when I use it but I quickly get bored with it quite simply because it's a point and shoot gun, minimal input from me apart from pulling the trigger and nowhere near the satisfaction.
    For me the PCP is a tool for a job, the springer is a trusted friend.

    I think part of the reason is that in the past if say i missed the pigeon in the tree with a springer, i convince myself that if i had been using a pcp i would of bagged it....at the end of the day it doesnt matter in the slightest if you miss the odd bunny or pigeon as long as its a clean miss....why cant i listen to my own reasoning :eek:

    all good replys ive been a springer man hunting only for over 40 yrs and recently bought a ultra multi shot and all the bits with it.spent abit of time zeroing it but have been 5 times since and took the hw97 every time.i think the only time ill use it is if i get the chance of a bit of ratting at night thats the only time i think it will be better than the 97.
