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.

    Well it is done .... deposit paid on my new rifle. Had a good chat with the guy and he threw in a few bits for me in the deal including servicing and repairs free of charge for the life of the rifle, first owner.

    I pick it up Saturday morning and pay the balance, which is the bit I don't like.

    So ............. my new rifle is a Daystate Airwolf MCT Tactical in .22 with an Airstream 6 moderator.

    I am going to top it off with my MTC Mamba 4-16 x 50 which is only 3 months or so old.

    Really looking forward to it and I hope after lots of research, lots of questions on here and shouldering a couple last weekend, that I have chosen wisely.

    Roll on Saturday

    Pete :D:up:

    Thanks guys - I still have time to swap calibres to .177 but as I am hunting and manage to get within 35yards to rabbits I am thinking .22 this time. What do you reckon ? My last rifle sold this week was a HW100 in .177 but I will be able to move to .22 easily with practice and range finding.

    I have been shooting airguns now for some 65years. I consider .177 .22 is just personal choice. Both will do the job. Loading a single shot tray is certainly easier with .22 if you have fingers like a cows teats!

    Congrats Pete, a good choice and sounds like a good deal.

    re the .22 - that's what I mostly use and a few hours just getting your aim points sorted is all you need. Once you know the aim points for a particular scope/gun combo it doesn't really matter about the calibre. Of course .177 is more forgiving and less adjustment in the dark :)

    cheers

    Thanks all, I have read lots of threads and articles re: .177 -vs- .22 and I believe that I have made the right choice with .22 as it will be used 99% for hunting rabbits within 40yards, just got to practice to learn drop offs and holdovers :D
