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.

    Thank you.

    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.

    I've took a deposit on my hft500 simply because I was not using it. I still have 5 others to choose from, 2 of which are pcp's. Truth be told whenever I use my springers I get more satisfaction from them as they seem less clinical and are more of a challenge to shoot.

    Might simply be the market, PCPs being more popular will see more of them on the secondhand market :)

    A mate if mine recently acquired an S400 from Air Arms ... It was given out on loan to the basc for youth training type stuff.. when the basc went with BSA, AA asked for their rifles back!!

    Anyway its shot to the moon and back..bashed and showing a haze of rust. Mauled , dropped etc at the hands if enthusiastic teens!

    My mate stuck a good hawke scope on it and brought it down the range. It rang the 8mm bell at 55yards on and off all afternoon. I shot a group of 5 at 30 and it was 1 ragged hole!

    My friend has now started playing with it .. no internal work, he's stuck it in a stunning thumb hole Walnut stock, put a prototype Luepold scope on it ( worth a mint ) and a titanium air tube he had kicking around.. and it shot its socks off at x30 mag out to 60 yards!

    So don't be to scared of second hand stuff... preferably Air Arms. ;)

    I personally have rationalised my thoughts on rifles generally.
    There is a lot more "development" with PCP's that sees new models and styles coming out with almost alarming frequency. Its easy to think that you "must have" the next new thing.
    Ive come to see that the law of diminishing returns applies very clearly, and the amount spent on a PCP does not mean it is far better than cheaper offerings. Maybe others are seeing that too and selling on rifles they bought thinking they'd be much better than they actually are.
    In a paper punching scenario, the difference between a pellet crossing a bull ring or not may be marginally enhanced by a better rifle. I shoot rabbits in the main and see no real benefit.

    I for one won't be getting rid of my PCP's real soon and in fact i'm buying another one. I was brought up on springers, right from 1976 onwards with Meteors, Relum Tornado, all the BSA range and HW range when I got a little older to the AA stuff like TX and Pro sport. I've probably had in the region of 60-70 springers over the years but after tuning the Hatsan to a very decent standard and shooting it for a month I came to a realization that springer shooting is a young mans game or you need to be built like a brick sh!thouse when you're older. To be perfectly honest, I can't do it anymore, the days when I could pick up my HW80 and shoot a rabbit through the head from a standing shot at 25 yards are gone well and truly. Just havn't got the strength to do it anymore and I have to be honest with myself. I'd still have a HW30 for plinking and a bit of fun but that's as far as a springer would go for me now.
