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.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.
    Hotmail addresses include.

  5. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    Hi all, I'm just getting back into shooting after many years away from it, I was hooked as a kid during cubs scouts then as a teenager I worked the clays at the gun club and enjoyed shotguns, Things got way laid and I left it be, it was strange as I still fly fish but my shooting got put aside. Well it's back now iv applyin for my sgc and might get fac. But I'm looking for another rifle I'm swaying towards a ratcatcher but I'm happy to hear what you all think regarding this.
    I'm hoping to get a semi auto 12g, my father in law said I can have his folding 410 so perfect for small game, but with the cost of ammo and shoots I want a nice air rifle I can enjoy 6 days of the week.

    Hello all.

    I know my esteemed fellow forum members are going to jump on me big time for this, but here goes.............
    CO2 is affected by temperature and if you are serious about hunting (as per your PM to me) I would steer clear. I had a "Ratty" fully customised and IMO only good for as it's name implies, Ratting. A QB78 CO2 can be tuned and make a half decent rifle, but after the cost of tuning then the ongoing cost of CO2 capsules, you might as well buy a half decent springer and learn to shoot it ( coz there is a technique)
    A cheap way to start, would be with a springer, but then there is the dreaded recoil. You can V Mach tune certain rifles, but it is still there. Then you can go down the the gas ram route or the PCP route, PCP is expensive to set up at first. Then we have the old grandad of a chestnut, and the topic of many a heated debate, 177 or 22.
    Look.....it can be a real minefield and I really, Really pity you because of all the choices.
    I have given you an invite to pop up to my house, you can hold (and if we pop up the farm) shoot a PCP and a springer in both calibres. A PCP acts ahemmm....a little like a CO2 so you can walk into a shop and say...."I want that one!"
    You never know...catch me in the right mood and you could have your first rabbit very soon! LOL!
    I am also in a club and shoot FAC up to 308 so I can help you with those and shotguns.
