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.

    Hi,

    Quick question really, how do you people with hard cases store bits in your hard cases without them slipping about and scratching your rifle? Obviously you have the recess in the foam option.
    But was wandering if there are other options as I have a steyr case which isn't in production anymore, so don't want to ruin it.

    Cheers

    Egg box type foam so yer bits get clamped by the foam?? How about removing the original foam and carefully storing it, so you can put it if the time comes you need to, then replacing the foam in the whole case with egg box foam? Just a thought....

    When I used to shoot on a range guys with hard cases used to cut sections of the foam out in the shape of the item. So many had a 50 round ammo box cut out, section for the bolt removed as well as spare mags.

    I have an egg box foam filled hardcase and if i put anything other than the rifle In it I stick to two rules of thumb. i put it the hinge side of the rifle so if it was to slip it would slip away from the rifle above it when carried by handle. If the rifle is going to move then the box is no good. Second I only store things with a reasonable surface area to weight ratio so the foam will grip them in place i.e will store a moderor but wouldnt store a full tin of pellets (awkward shapes also grip well compared to simple shapes).
    sounds very complicated but if you think about it I think its just common sense (but then I dont have much of that:D)

    Hi all,

    It's a good quality egg box lining that Is glued in, it does seem to clamp/squash down well but I don't want to just put a a tin of pellets in and come back to see dents and scratches :)
    At the moment the cutting s rexcess like Andrew says seems to be the best option as well as putting them below the rifle as above^^^

    My concern with doing this is you'll lose pressure on the item, but you will gain "support"

    you could always buy some of the neoprene AirArms zip on pellet cases. i use these (only a couple of quid each) and this stops any metal to metal contact and would be gripped better by the foam as they make the overall pellet 'pack' a bit bigger.

    In mine I marked out where the rifle sits and then cut out appertures in the blank areas close to the ends and sides where I have glued 4 different sized plastic clip lid boxes. They do the job really well and the rifle never gets touched. I suppose I could have simply used some hook and loop tape with the ends fastened to the rifle case to make the boxes removeable....but heyho whats done is done and I'm happy with what I have.

    absolutely agree about JSB tins and why do they feel the need to make the edges razor sharp as well.

    I have one of the Spitfire tins and a couple of Bisley ones that have screw lids, it seems that if its .22 you get a screw on lid and .177 push fit. Why?
    Also have a couple of these now, work great. http://www.greenmanbushcraft.co.uk/survival/pop-top-tin.htm

    and if you squash the edges,you end up sealing the tin and not being able to open it...they make a fantastic pellet and put them in a foil tin,why :?

    I thought the ammo was supposed to be kept separate from the gun along with the bolt when travelling to shoot, so I cannot see the point in those ammo and bolt cut outs? Or am I wrong, I'm not being pedantic just curious why they had those cut outs done.

    Thanks

    Oh, I know of nobody that removes the bolt for transport and keeps ammo seperate. Might be a fac rule but I'm pretth certain, airguns are completely fine
    Half of airgun bolts aren't an easy removable.
    Cheers
