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.

    Never seen a chicken run around for sometimes minutes then after it’s had its head taken clean off?

    even a clean headshot can result in quite a lot of movement after the kill

    Not much call for chicken control down here.

    We're talking about mammals, where the brain is proportionally larger than on a bird.
    Rats and rabbits taken with properly placed brain shots simply don't run

    .303 slugs at 300ftlbs on rats for me, and I only ever take them at 15 yards, through the eyeball.

    Seriously though, I'm starting to quite like the 110, stop it :facepalm:

    Yes they do.

    it’s almost certainly nervous reaction but they CAN run off short distances

    referring to the chicken run post... you can take a hens head clean off and it will run away...

    with zero brain input

    ^^^this I’ve shot rats in both cals using a accurate domed pellet plenty of damage and pools of blood with a domed pellet , tried expensive hollow points pellets and find they don’t kill any better .
    I like falcons in 22 for ratting because they fly quicker and a tad flatter, the main reason I switched to 22 for rats was the higher shot count the rifle gave me

    There's only one "stop and drop" as far as I know, base of the skull where it meets the spine and if you can hit that every time "without fail" then you really are the $h1t and the rest of us just ain't worthy... :thumb:

    If Richie still has his Uragan Compact for sale (OK a lot more expensive) that's what I'd go for Chris, better than the other two put together.

    Technology has its place but I don't think it's relevant in this case. Both guns shoot well, both certainly more than capable of dispatching rats. It's a hunting tool Seamaster is after.

    Agree. That's now my go to rat gun.

    We'll always disagree on this subject so best leave the thread back on topic :up:

    No... at least not for 5 years... I haven't seen one older than that so can't claim they won't ever.

    I rarely get the chance to shoot them in the head the b*****s don't keep still long enough , a .22 FTT through the chest and they don't go far , i have opened the chest cavities for a sort of post mortum in the past and the lungs and heart are just like mush .

    For rapid firing on rats I would just favour the 110 just for the side lever
