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.

    Sunday 19 th Sept I used some QYS 4.49 8.48 gr domed in my 300S today and shot the best set of 20 yard 5 shots since I have had my eyes done , totally happy almost pellet on pellet apart from the middle and bottom right where I pulled a shot so ruining a good card.Even with the pulled shots I am a happy man... 300S... the backing card does give a nice clean cut I must admit.
    Although I have ( for me) a realy consistant set of strings, none of them are sub 6mm so hats off to Mr @Reevo17 you rascaly rascle you beat me again....I repeat my request for my previous statement of giving you lot a drubbing to be removed...:facepalm:...Oh the shame.:(..Thanks for the competition folks, can anybody send @Reevo17 on holiday next month?

    Bloody hell you aren’t far off buddy - any other month and those would win!

    Please accept my apologies :(

    If it helps - I’m contemplating buying either a left handed Diana 75 or lefty Diana 75HV….

    Or even to buy a cheaper right handed FWB300 so it’ll be new to me and I might use that next month if I bite the bullet!

    Ruddy good shooting mate!

    Just PM'd you.
    Thanks Mate, I almost feel guilty at putting that card up, it's as good as it gets for me, I was so happy with the consistency, the fact that there is pellet on pellet is a bonus.
    AND don't you try and make me feel good by buying a "cheap FWB300" just to make it difficult for yourself ( cheap FWB 300 indeed)...I'll have you fair and square yet:):), but not this month.:tea:
    Maybe next month the FWB150 just might come out :thumb:
    Please Sir can I have a rosette for second or third please Sir?

    You can get a thumbs up from me!

    Bring the big guns out - Pete was saying he finds his 150 more accurate than the 300 so you might as well give yourself a chance ;)

    Here is my first submission for this competition. 14mm at 14 yards. It’s without doubt the best standing group I’ve ever done with my fwb 300 and what’s even better is I out shot my dad @ColP which never happens 12272999-2F12-47EB-83AB-E7D44B1CC57B.jpeg

    I have had a pink one for quite a while now 3.5mm on the FWB’s.
    Can’t see the size of the other one, maybe 2.5mm

    Nice one Bob!

    I paid for a 300s last night - it’s a righty so you’ll have to cut me some slack for using it left handed ;)

    You don’t need any slack, I might just try a set of unsupported next month ( if back let’s me) just to keep you on your toes. Anyway at your height at twenty yards, just lean forward and you would touch the target.
    I’m a poor crippled old man , failing eyesight, hard of hearing, pain wracked, etc, etc, what more slack do you need. :tea::)
