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.

  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.

    Well your description is very vague for you to be urging us for answers.

    Power levels? Optics? Charging gear? Single or multi shot?

    25. that's a first, do you mean .25?

    Anyway if its Scottsdale Arizona and you have no power limit level, I would say the best platform is a Theoben Rapid ;)

    But you could look for .30 cal FX boss

    Or Daystate wolverine .30

    Secondhand though I reckon they will still be more than $800

    Finding one in Arizona may be difficult try Airguns of Arizona, they may have some deals off the shelf that they could help with, US brits couldlnt advise on the best airguns for shooting racoons, as they are about the size of our foxes and only the above really would be capable of doing the job decent but no better than a rimfire .22 and even a rimfire isn't really recommended for our foxing over here.

    Im told you need a licence in in the states for an airgun so why not go fullbore wouldn't it be cheaper and easier?

    By the way with that username, please tell us you are Female, if not I would change that name mate, not cool, it kinda sucks:D

    Hi, the most suitable air rifle for shooting racoons is the Wolverine .303 which is out of your budget, i think you'd be better off with a centre fire rifle? ;)

    This may sound daft....but wouldn't you be better asking this question on a US based forum.

    Only because we don't have raccoons and majority of forum users on here only us sub 12lb for rabbits at 35 yards not an animal stading 3ft tall weighing 25-30lb.
    Also majority of users are uk based and have little knowlage of what $800 buys you in the US or what's available, makes and models ect.

    But as said may be air is not the best propellant for the intended use. We have deer called muntjac here not dissimular in size or weight to raccoons and .22 centre fire or bigger are used. There must be a reason you only wish to use an air rifle as you could buy a second hand remmington 700 with cartridges with your budget.
    Are you in a built up area?

    Andrew

    for that budget, you're stuffed ! increase your spend considerably, and get a daystate wolverine .303. if you're intent on pcp, realistically this is the only rifle up to the job

    I must agree, ie, user name + shooting Racoons with air rifle + UK Air gun forum, like you , not sure about this one, but time will tell. Atb, Bob. PS, Not come across any Racoons on my hunting trips in Yorkshire.
