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.

    Neither.
    Wait until they start appearing on the secondhand market and you know what the problems are with them and what can be done to put them right.

    Two complete different type of guns, Wolverine suited to hunting with large shot counts and multishot etc where as the FTP is really only for target work,target stock,air stripper etc.

    very, very nearly right - bottom one ! ;)
    ftp900 for best, r10 for in the field. you already have the r10, and apart from the thumbhole, the wolverine and r10 will be similar to handle.
    the wolverine is a beast, but the ftp is a sexy beast.

    The ds wolverine is a more versatile air rifle to own and will do both hunting and HFT whereas the FTP is admittedly lovely but it`s very specific in use.

    Depends what you want the rifle for Craig

    I reckon the s510 ultimate spotter is more appealing and suitable for hunting

    Are they trained on the new technology?
    They screwed up my Prosport 3 years ago. Lifetime warranty is worth nothing if they don't know what they're doing.
    Anything like that needs to go back to the manufacturer unless you can do it yourself.

    You know what the S510 ultimate sporter is like Craig as you've seen mine. Shot 52 today with it.

    Surely you're not suggesting that someone would bring up one of them.

    I had a standard s510 and that was superbly accurate, I'll give airarms credit for that :) the only reason I don't own any is the styling/feel, but this new airm arms Hunter looks very nice. So it's got performance and looks.
    The daystate buddy bottle range are a bit big and over the top for hunting imo, How many shots do you fire even in a full day hunting/zeroing etc... Nearly A full tin worth of shots, equal to a fill of a big bottled rifle?
    to me they always feel like a rifle made for big specifications :)

    I would imagine 50 odd shots on a good day.....

    Just opinion though, some like other stuff.

    Tbh my r10 will be my hunter rifle if i got the 900 , the wolverine was going to be my hft gun but would have also made it into he field on occassion, the 900 would ideal for my hft needs and the r10 for hunting , this gun is not required by any means as my r10mk2 does it all but after getting back into the sport and loving it again I decided to treat myself , my wife walked out on me in sept completely out of the blue after 23 years of marriage and getting back into shooting has really helped me cope and brought me and my two sons closer so this was a special treat for me and my sons as they will want to use it too lol , something I'll treaure for many years I hope so I wanted something new and modern that stood out in the crowd , I like a lot of guns but these 2 are definately the 2 front runners for me so which one
