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.

    '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.

    I wasn't :(

    The new ones are ok, just not as good as the old. If you're looking for a springer then get a Weihrauch :up:

    no a1 your wrong!

    the best thing he could ever do is to learn to shoot with a springer.
    learning with a springer teaches you a lot more about shooting technique
    than a pcp will ever do.
    mainly follow through, which he"ll probably never learn if he opts for a pcp straight away.
    most if not all of the top lads learnt this way.
    ask someone to try shooting a springer who is only used to pcps and i"ll put money on it his groups will be like a shotgun blast!

    ok start with a springer then its the best way.

    you could get a pcp and train with a cheaper springer like a BSA metior like i did but i did have a good 3 months springer experience first.

    springer first ten pcp like rockabilly says (which is true)

    I dont know what your shoting skill or experience is like so i was just adding my opinion,
    and totally agree with rockabilly.

    Well i Have alot of shooting experiance, but not with air rifles.. shotguns mainly and once a 308 but nuffin more...

    i would like to change the crosman 2260 purely because it is costing me a fortune in C02 and i fed up of it always dieing down.... i would like a springer and a bit disapointed now that everyone has ripped the longbow to pieces (looked really good). Not overly sure about the pcp because i am going to be recharging it like no one buisness like changing the crosmans Co2, how every i am looking to spend around 300-400 but would like a new scope if i can not essentual. Thanks for your current recomendations, i will keep looking... But if you still have more ideas most welcome.

    Thankyou :up:
