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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    I bought this today and rushed home and i have been knocking the nut's off knat's at 40 yards today.:D
    It's a Falcon Fn12 .177 Lighthunter and for years i have wanted one of these but being cack handed it has taken me a while to find a left hooker and now i have i really am not dissapointed.
    I just love the way these Falcons look and handle and even though i have alway's thought they were quite an accurate rifle i did'nt realise how good untill today! they are not worth loads of money and i think you get a lot of gun for your Dollar!
    Anyone got one? Are you please with it?

    I wanted one of these ages ago but then, I've wanted just about every gun at one point or another :D it looks very nice, and compact. I'd imagine it'd be ideal for barn shooting in .22 calibre :up: but I'm no hunter so what do I know?

    I've always liked Falcons but I wouldn't use it enough to justify the price. Good gun.

    It's an eight shot Andy and the mag just slips in the side and locks up,i love it its just one of those carry all day rifles,
    Cog it's not an expensive gun by any stretch, i paid £295 for this with a BSA 3-12x50 contender scope and two eight shot mags so a lot less than i paid for my S200 when i bought it.
    I think it just goes to show if you look hard enough there are bargains to be had.
    the other good thing for me is that Falcon now come from the Air Arms Stable at Hailsham which is not to far from me.:thumb:

    That looks a great rifle. I'm over the moon with my Webley VenomViper, but wish there were some way of converting it from the 2-shot it is now, to a 10 shot; after al', it is only a tricked up Raider, and that comes in 10 shot now. If anyone knows a way of converting it, please let me know.
    The mod on the Falcon looks good - as does all of it - pity I can't justify trading mine in !!!

    Hey,
    there good guns.I had a titan 19 and the fn12 skeleton,also had the profile 18,can hold and shoot with one hand if you wanted to,there that light.I found them not to be to accurate and blacking to be poor "rusts easy".wish I had kept my fn12 though.the thin barrel and figure 8 clamp don't help them.
    them silencers don't half make them real tidy,good silencer as well.
    Be sure to keep well oiled on air cylinder and where barrel go's into action and what ever you do try not to knock the barrel.
    Enjoy mate the lovely looking
