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.

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.

    if you get a shotgun add £150 for a cabinet and a license.

    Because of my back problems, I had to buy a semi auto,I would have love'd a over and under, tried loads but the kick-back was to much, for me to bare, made me feel like I had been run ova by a truck, I had to buy a 2nd hand 12g beretta for £350.00+use 30gram loads,most of the kick is take out by the re-loading of the next shell and I am well pleased with it:up::D, ther is a way around most things;)

    My wife and I have just gotten shotguns...I've got a Beretta Silver Pigeon 5 and Jenny has a Beretta 686 E limited edition, both new.

    Jenny first shot a semi-auto but says that her 686 with 24 grm cartridges has less recoil. I shoot the standard 28grm and although I have some arthritis in my shoulders I regularly shoot a 100 cartridges in half a day clay shooting with absolutely no problems at all.
    The over under setup is heavier than a semi-auto, so the extra weight almost equates to the reload power when it comes to perceived recoil. Being able to use the 24 grm cartridges that some semi-autos won't tolerate also helps.

    I think, given the option, I'd go for the shotgun rather than the PCP.

    I'd get a semi-auto if possible, don't like the looks of the over/under side/side ones.

    I'd rather have a sniper rifle over both of these options though, something like the M21 or M24 (but that would never happen) :D

    I got myself a Fabarm SAT8 semi auto 12ga.
    She handles everything up to 3inch mag and never jams
    Recoil too is minor due to a nifty screw on muzzlebrake and bearing in mind that I use a lot of.00buck you could use it all day.
    Its a sect 1 so its on my FAC cos its an 8 shot semi auto.
    It has a weaver rail under the fore end so I have put on a foregrip with a tac lite,certainly raises eyebrows on driven shoots when I unzip that badboy out of its gunbag!.

    regards Sumo.

    Haha "Cogington" - that's how I came up with Cognition, it came up on spell checker and I found it funny.

    Yeah, I have a strange sense of humour sometimes but you had to be there. It was a boring school day, you know.

    Berreta 303 is a good shotgun but tends to be shell specific but their gel tec recoil pad makes up for that.
    Have a look at Benelli and Franchi ranges first then have a look at Mossburg,Browning,Remington(870) and the turkish guns which are very good too, ie Stoeger,Hatsan,Istanbul Silah,dont forget the russian guns though, Baikal have some cracking guns in their line up but watch for probs if warranty work is required!!. Other italian guns to consider is Pietta,nice but again shell specific, even try as my own 12g, a Fabarm?.
    Mines a Fabarm SAT8,8 SHOT 12 G semi auto tac gun.
    It likes everything over 28grms,especially .00buck and 1 3/4 oz slug but forget light loads cos she will not cycle them.
    Hope this helps
    regards
