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.

    '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.

    I love all things John Wayne, but especially the sidearms done as limited editions.

    I have just ordered one of these:

    Looks cool, very cool! Condition is just what you would expect from Duke's 1911 methinks.

    Who made this? I do feel an urge ...

    I realised I was limiting my self mate. And you only live once. :up: I love them all. And because Cloverleaf thinks replica and military airgun owners are 'walts' just made me want to expand my collection. ;)

    I hear that, the darned ricochets just bug me.
    So many great b.b. pistols out there that aren't available as pellet-firers though. Especially my all time fave; the Makarov!

    You were limiting yourself mate. A lot of good bb blowbacks out there, and often the accuracy is not that far off some of the pellet firers.
    Obviously my SAA's are not auto's, but the difference in accuracy between my pellet one and bb one is negligible.
    In any event, at the end of the day, they're all designed as fun plinkers.
    I never bother with targets, I just shoot at reactive stuff for fun.
    If you want pinpoint accuracy, go for something else imo.

    I shoot into funnel targets and beer cans. Hardly any ricochets these days.

    I have had loads of BB firers over the years Garry. Trust me, loads. I shoot at paper targets and reactionary targets. I love all kind of shooting. My days of wanting pinpoint accuracy are well and truly gone. Speaking as an ex Benchrest shooter, ex Worlds and National HFT competitor and ex National FT shooter. I have also shot in comps in the military too. So now my fun is in plinking. I have just gone back to steel BB's. I still prefer pellet.

    My current favourite BB plinkers are my Crosman DPMS and my Colt 1911 and my Air Venturi Hellboy M4.

    Ah, ok.
    I thought you were kinda anti bb..
    That Crosman does look interesting tbh.......
    Shame you can't try airsoft guns, I think you'd love them.
