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.

    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.

    My first thought was a .410 solely for around farm buildings but now I'm thinking a 20 gauge would have more uses and should still be quiet enough (using subs) around the farm buildings. In an ideal world I would have both but I can only afford the one and space in my gun cabinet is at a premium :facepalm:

    And when you want another gun you just fit a different barrel!

    20 best thing I've bought for a long time.
    It spits out super quiet Eley subs 21g and stretches to 3" mags with a right range.
    Wish I'd bought one sooner. As a pest controller lol

    Just been on Guntrader and spotted a 2nd Hand Mossberg 500 20 Gauge Hushpower that comes with 2 in Wiltshire Rod and Guns. It's only an hour and twenty minute drive from me - would that be a good price considering it comes with a standard barrel and chokes as well as the moderated barrel? I wasn't aware that they came with 2 barrels.

    £695 my friend - RFD price I guess. Just done a quick search and new kit price is around £850.
    There is a private seller advertising essentially the same thing for £525 including 150 carts but that one is two and a half hours drive away.

    If you buy second hand make sure the moderator comes off and there is no baffle damage inside the moderator.
    If not ever cleaned the moderators will seize on to the barrel and you can sometimes find baffle damage where Not enough choke was used with plastic wad cartridges.

    Thank you for the info my friend that's something I didnt know:facepalm:.
    Sportsman's Gun Centre's price for a Mossberg 500 20g Hushpower is £600 but they have no stock. Backlog at the proof house apparently?
    It's not as if I need two barrels because I have a Franchi Affinity One 12g semi for out in the field (no need to be quiet) and a Browning 12g for the clays.

    Be careful mate, you won't get a new kit for £600 and like mine extra barrels are pricey, from £237 from Brownells

    Not dealt with them myself but also not heard anything untoward about them.
    Ask them to send some detailed pics and check baffles for damage.

    Going to pick up a 20 gauge Mossberg Hushpower today, the RFD I'm going to doesn’t have any subsonic 30g cartridges and neither do the other RFD's in my area. How noisy is the 20g Hushpower using standard cartridges and what load should I go for?

    I dont know how loud the 20g with normal carts is but that's a valid point, the availability of good subsonic cartridges particularly when lead is taken away. That's the reason I've started hand loading for the 410 as I think it will be poorly catered for in the future.
