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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Black ops gun.jpg I also have been looking at this air gun at Walmart the Ignite Black Ops Tactical Sniper Pellet Gun. Is this something anyone knows about? Is it of any quality or should i view it the same as the MK-177 from Crosman?

    Not even looking at specs, I'd say buy a well known brand, with a classic wooden stock and you'll do better, doubt the UK government would be happy with that in the UK, just asking for trouble.

    Yes it is like the MK 177, do yourself a favour (or favor) , buy a Crosman Marauder. Much more fun!

    Yes ;)

    I know you're across the pond so your market will differ to ours.. but here's a few tips when looking for an entry-level rifle:

    - Avoid anything with "tactical" in the name, or that's made to look like a firearm / assault rifle - usually rubbish cooked-up to appeal to the Rambo-wannabes and kids. Not a market that's know for it's discerning tastes or appreciation of quality.
    - Avoid "package" deals - rifle, 'scope etc. Research each one and buy the best. Again packages are often designed to offload crap on the unwary, who think they're getting a good deal judging by the sheer amount of stuff on offer.
    - Avoid shop's own brand stuff.
    - Don't just pick stuff that "looks nice" out of the air and ask about it on a forum - do a bit of independent research into what you want and the rifles that fit the bill.
    - Avoid anything that's branded by a firearms manufacturer (Remington, Ruger, Winchester etc) these are just cheap Chinese rifles rebadged to trade off the name.
    - Avoid spring guns with bipods - you'll never fire a springer accurately off a bipod; the fact that it's supplied with one suggests that the manufacturers neither know nor car about the product they're selling.

    For what it's worth (not sure if you get them over there) but over here I'd recommend a Hatsan Mod. 55 or 60 as the best you'll buy on a budget (£100-150) or the Weihrauch HW99s (HW50s) if you can go a but further (£229). Avoid Crosman or anything from Spain ;)

    Given your location, you might have more luck on the Gateway to Airguns forum :)
