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.

    oops just missed something on your post,ive got the parker hale striker in 22,and i wouldnt normally use 22 but this rifle is spot on in 22 and has took a lot of fur and feather,and for the price it will hold its own with a lot of guns that can cost a lot more in price,good luck what ever you decide to get.

    I've got the Weihrauch HW57 in .177 and it's a nice little rifle, when I got mine back in September last year it only cost me £160 or so, I wouldn't pay over £200 for it!

    If you're looking at getting a first rifle then a springer might be best (spring rifle) - the Weihrauch HW95 or HW95K is commonly known as the best mid-range springer ;) get one in .177 though, as has been said.

    If you've got a enough money, look at the Air Arms TX200/TX200HC and Weihrauch HW97K - the best springers out there at the moment :)

    Hope that helps.

    177 flatter trajectory less affected by wind more accurate and gives you at least a 20 yard advantage over 22 out in the field if you are good enough

    .177 pellets are lighter and carry less energy, I'm sure they're effected by the wind more :confused: that's one of the few down sides.

    Ok thank you all.Because of this stupid government and it`s doppy laws we`re not allowed to order rifles on line....so the site i was looking at withc is the nearest place to where i live was:
    http://www.adenbournefieldsports.com/

    I narrowed down a few i thought were ok but they have tons more.
    Oh and is it safe to buy S/H i mean do they "stop working" any quicker, then new guns?

    By the way, be careful about the pricing on there. It looks like some stock is fairly priced but there are some items that're really over expensive :eek:
