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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Actually the cp1 fires full power at 5.5 ftlb around 8 joules but heard of Alecto been way over the limit at near 16 joules prob is if caught your up the creek with out a paddle if looking for higher power better off with a carbine rifle

    Even on Ticket - Fire Arms - Air Guns are Still Limited to Sub 6FP

    As are TAC Pistols - We in Competitions tried to get it upped on ticket and point Blank refused

    Yes there are Pistols made that can Shoot Higher powered - But Strictly a Court Date if Found in use -

    cp-1 as above however, the Alecto is not CO2, it's pump action, 3 pumps is full power (about 5.5ft/lbs) pumping more than that does not give any further power gains due to a pressure reg expelling excess air.

    if i was to use this co2 pistol in my back garden with a proper back stop would this be ok?, i have quit a large garden but there is a couple of houses that over look me, these pistols do look very real, if a neighbour phoned the police to say the have seen a man with a gun shooting in his garden, what would be the outcome? could i be prosecuted for that, i just want to play by the rules and be responsable, i would hate to loose my shotgun certificate. thanks ps how do you get the pellet markers under my profile name to change colour, is it number of posts or donations?

    Slightly OT but I thought .22LR target pistols were banned in the UK, yet I saw them advertised for sale. Am I wrong?

    You can have them on a section one but they must be at least 60cm long.

    Not forgetting the Wording is Sub 12. FP For Air Rifles
    And Sub 6. FP For Air Pistol

    As the wording used today - Offence is having a Air Gun Capable of Exceeding Current Limits

    you'd be fine as long as you make sure none of the pellets leave or go over your boundaries ,so a good backstop will be needed. Oh and the pellets are to verify the size of your willy :D, only pulling your pisser it's post count,,,,,,,,
