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.

  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.

    Today wasn’t meant to be new gun day, not for me anyway, yet it turned out that way after all. I had some items classed as essential purchases to pick up from my local RFD, one thing led to another and I came away with these two beauties that I’ve wanted to add to my co2 pistol collection for quite some time.

    I haven’t fired either of them yet so updates to follow when weather permits. I expect good things. Especially from the DW 6"

    Dan Wesson 6"

    Watch out zombies this bad boy is in town! Well, the garden at least!

    Edited to add: I realise it's not the 715 but the 6"

    Table Top Review:




    Matt black tactical 1911

    This one isn't my first 1911 but still I still wanted this version because it’s matt, it's black, it’s got tactical bits and takes a nice underside torch.

    Cracking stuff. My pistol collection is looking in good shape with these two new additions.

    I will thanks Bill. I just wish the weather would improve slightly. I don’t mind the cold but my CO2 does sadly. Ah well I had a brilliant summer plinkin’ away last year. Hoping to repeat that again this year. :up:

    I hadn’t handled one until today. It was always something I saw in gunshop display cabinets while I was buying something else and thought I’d have to get myself one some day. It seems well made, no barrel slop at all, nice tight hammer and trigger. I’ll get some extra shells for it and see how she fires soon.

    Nice pair of new additions for the collection. On another note though, you Folk who live south of our Border seem to me to be a bunch of big wet blouse Jessies. What’s a little cold damp air to do with drawing the line at a bit of outside plinking? Man up and shoot :D:):D

    I saw a spot of rain on the window and that was enough for me! Back under the quilt with a hot chocolate top up. :D

    I thought the 715 was the 6 inch version, what size is that one then?

    I'm not very knowledgable about the Dan Wesson range but I think there’s two six inch versions, the one I have and the 715 which seems to have a different shaped handle. I just fancied the 6” barrel to shoot some zombies. I want to get myself a Rick Grimes deputy sheriffs hat to keep the sun out of my eyes next summer. Also for the fun factor. Hehe only for the fun factor - I don’t need to keep the sun out of my eyes at all lol :)

    Not quite the same gun but close enough for me ..

    DW 6” is a cracking pistol but I would advise getting rear loading shells as the original front loaders (if that’s what came with it) are a right fanny to load a pellet into:thumb:

    Yeah the legendary member @garryt did them for me a good while back in a swop type deal that we arranged between us, the 4" has had a colour change and grip medallion replacement since that photo too....

    I reckon that 1911 would look great adorning a nice set of wooden grips, lovely couple of pistols you've acquired here :thumb:

    Gorgeous revolver although my Rick Grimes fetish has been satiated with this cracking pair of 6” zombie killers. They’re not Pythons but they’re so sexy I’m content. For now :D So much fun. I need to restock my zombies. First fine day I’m coming out blasting :D
