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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Hi and welcome from another returning newbi:thumb:
    Have recently posted the same questions due to wanting hw100 Bullpup carbine or the hw110!!
    Great deal of info in the threads on this stuff as well as what other people will post on this thread.
    Ended up buying A.A. Galahad yesterday (photos next week) think they will say have you held and shot one?:)
    Because no matter what is said you need to get your hands on one because not every gun suits everyone. Thant’s how I ended up with different gun than what I wanted.
    But I think if you go back to home page and got into section air guns and everything else and put in search bar hw110 it comes up with threads already chatted over.
    Hope this help but new to the forum as well! Great bunch of guy and wealth of knowledge :finger:

    Hi Pete, I also had a 77 in the mid ‘80s. I don’t have a HW100 or 110, but the normal wisdom is that the HW110 is built down to a price. Not a bad gun, but if you can push yourself to a secondhand HW100 that might be a better idea?

    Thanks guys, have tried the HW110 and felt really nice, went to gun shop to look at at gamo coyote and just felt more comfy, and suited to me the HW110, but I haven't tried the 100 so may check that before, and also want to check out the BSA R10 as a mate has that and raves about it.
    Thanks for the welcome guys, nice to find a site with such a wealth of experience :up:

    Ahhhh, some lots of opinions on R10s here. I do have one of those, and its very good. I had an issue to start with (pellet probe o-ring coming off) but I think that was because it un-used for three years. One of Jeffsky’s replacement probes sorted that. Since then, it has been very good. Look out for one that has either been JB blueprinted or been ‘ratworked’..
