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.

    Morning All,

    Im thinking of starting to shoot pistol comps at the club both paper punching and pistol HFT. I am hopefully after a pistol that has adjustable open sights as well as a rail that I could add a scope on to for the HFT then take off for the paper punching.

    As the title said preferably would like it to be PCP.

    Thanks,
    Ash

    Shooting a pistol at HFT ranges will take some skill. Many people have issues hitting the target frame at 20m never mind at longer ranges.

    HW 44 would be a good choice.

    I was using a Magic9er tuned Rhom Twinmaster giving a bit over 5fpe and it shoots great.I'm not really using it this year so once I get round to getting it serviced it will be going up for sale. I'll keep an eye on this thread and if you are still looking when I get it sorted I'll let you know.

    The pp700 in all its forms strikes me as suitable for both but there's a lack of decent open sights for it

    Depends on the budget he has put aside, as the one above, is not cheap. :thumb:

    I do love those Steyer pistols and have shot one this week another member of the club brought down, but having not really used one before and not 100% its my thing yet I was looking at something no more than the £200 mark ideally.

    Not knowing the exact requirements for hft etc then cannot comment exactly how suitable the PP800 but so far it ticks all the boxes. They run at around 4ft-lbs out of the box and are a little bit rough but with a little attention you should be able to make it more suited to the task.

    I tried the open sights on mine when I first got it but my eyes are not really up to open sights. Trigger is 2 stage and heavy-ish. Mine is regged and tweaked down to around 3ft-lbs. One thing to note is the size of the air cylinder. 40cc = around 80 shots at 3ft-lbs, 60 at 4.5ft-lbs, I would guess therefore around 30+ at 5.5ft-lbs?

    How many shots you needing for a hft course?

    I really like mine and prefer it to the PP700. I only use it for paper targets at 7m in the back garden and I'm getting 80 or so consistent shots.

    Of course there is the HW44 but it's many, many £££'s. The PP800 is almost made for you... ;)
