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.

    '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.

    It's not really a "job", but I like to give something back to a sport which has given me such a lot of pleasure since I was a kid myself.
    I also introduce youngsters to model flying too.... which is another sport which has been a passion of mine since the age of 5.
    Yup, it's very rewarding. :cool:

    Plans for 2021, get out shooting HFT once conditions allow.

    This year in the main I'll be shooting at a couple of local clubs as I can't see much in the way of competitions happening. A good opportunity to work on refining technique, kit setup and try some other scopes out in readiness for competitions in 2022.:up:

    Learn to shoot the guns I bought last year.
    Do a couple of jobs on some of them, get me shooting range set up properly. Hopefully get to use the range at the local rfd.
    Decide if there's any of the guns I've bought don't suit, there's one contender in there already, nothing wrong with it other than I ain't feeling the fun factor when I shoot it.

    Aiming (BOOM BOOM!) To get my R10Th off to Ratworks as well funnily enough. Also, thinking about a bullpup stock for my S410.

    Anyone have an opinion on these stocks? Seems like a good way to have a bit of a change but still have a known, reliable rifle.

    Oh, and I'd better do something with my old Super10 bull barrel. Needs some TLC.

    I like the look of just about all the walnut stock models but, as you say, not much else to go on. I'm planning on picking up a couple of PCP rifles in the coming months.

    One I've already decided on (famous last words before changing mind :laff:) and the Aselkons are very much on the shortlist for the "other one". However, I'm citrusphobic as well so, if I do go for one, it won't be until they've been put through their paces in the wild.

    The only positive aspect of this current situation for me personally is the restrictions are putting the rash-brake on me because there's so little point is acquiring anything at the moment because of how little use it will get. Gives me time to do more research and hopefully make the right choice.

    My rash brake failed today.
    .25 ultra coming soon.:facepalm:
    2 of my wants were a bullpup and a .25 calibre gun, the aselkon was supposed to do both.
    Some more info will hopefully come out on them before I'm in a position to buy one.

    I know the problem with that rash-brake, it can fail at any time. :rofl:

    There's a good chance "the other" will be a bullpup in my case, too. Rationally, in light of the almost-definite first option (S510, maybe S410), the second should be a bullpup but then I see the Ravello and the full length MXs and think:

    [​IMG]

    And I start wondering how I could do not two purchases but three. :facepalm::laff:

    Happy 2021,everything is nuts but at least in some way we can indulge our airgun addictions,even if it's just buying them admiring/stroking them until we can actually get to use them. :D

    Funny you should mention that. It was only a couple of hours ago I was admiring, stroking and looking forward to soon be giving a cocking to a dusky 18 year old.

    My walnut TX200 HC. :roflmao:

    Depending how the year pans out, im planning a few new builds for myself. And might even get chance to build a new range and get the lads down from all over the country camping and chatting guns. Might even have some new toys to show off

    Very nice indeed. TBH, I used to be able to handle the weight of the TX a lot easier than I can now - it went several years unused until recently - so I ought to start doing some stamina exercises in this hiatus in preparation for getting back shooting regularly again. Weird thing is, even though it's a carbine it feels long to me at the moment but I do have short arms. I really need a bullpup, don't I? ;)
