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.

  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.

    why 20? you need 30 or so to lead your barrel and then 20 to test them.try 50 in each

    Are we talking about a pack of 10 all-rounder dome-type pellets, or heavy-weights, hollow-points, etc. too? Either way, RWS Superdomes are a sensible choice, how about AA Diabolo Fields and/or JSB Exacts and maybe Webley Accupells too (I know my BSAs in .22 like those at any rate)? I've not tried Falcon Accuracy Plus in .22 but I've heard good things of them, and I've used them to good effect in my .177s.

    thats 1 thing that always confused me about the sample packs, you need to use whats in the pack just to lead your barrel, then theres nothing left to actually find how good groupings the pellets give lol

    The above is probably a good point, so if everyone else selling them clearly doesnt know this, then perhaps lewis will havea niche here.

    If everyone else is selling them in too small packs, then regardless of the costs elsewhere, their product is pointless, and you would wonder at why they;re even being bought (aside from others who dont know this)

    Perhaps we could all suggest the ones most people would want, maybe 5-8 brands instead? All depending on cost. I think Lewis just needs ideas to help get this moving

    Depending on the number interested and the number of brands people want to try, would wouldnt perhaps always have to do them in packs of 5-8 brands, some might just want to try 3 or 4 types of dome, etc....

    Ideas ideas!

    ye postage is going to be a pain, which is why i suggested 20 packs instead of 50 to keep costs down

    and i dont think you'd save much on the special offer pellets as postage is £2 ?

    I think i ordered falcon accuracy and it cost £11 with postage but falcons are hard to get in shops.
