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.

    just wondering if you buy your chosen pellet thats best for your rifle on line at a discount, are all pellets the same grade or are they 2nd grade which makes them cheaper hence the discount :confused: the discount can be massive or our local shops ripping us off ;) mine does

    I was wondering that, I buy my pellets online at a certain price for so many tins but ive noticed a lot of damaged skirts. ive had so many in this batch of 10 tins im buying from another online shop next time to see if there's a difference. the tins are not damaged and they come very well packaged so im beginning to wonder the same as you.

    I can only comment on one on line shop where I brought 10 tins (and the cheapest I could find) and that was intershoot and the tins I have opened so far have been grade 1 i.e. no damaged pellets.

    If it is JSB pellets, they can be like that! Which is why I do not buy them!

    I bought ten pack of JSB Exacts from Swillington. I saved £3.60 a tin over local RFD. So far I haven't found a single dud.
    I can't believe that if there is such a thing as seconds that unscrupulous RFD's wouldn't be selling them as perfect ones already.

    I bought 10 tins of .177 JSB Exacts 4.52 from Swillington Shooting Supplies and haven't had any problems with there being lots of damaged pellets in them.
    Don't get me wrong I still get rid of the odd 1 or 2 that have a damaged skirt but nothing like I've had to bin with other brands (that I have bought from a local RFD).
    As for their packaging, I thought they'd sent me the wrong parcel as they were so well packed.
    If they pack a sleeve of pellets that well then it makes me wonder how they'd package a scope!

    I buy 20 tins at a time and save at least £2.50 a tin compared to all of our local rfds. I've even offered to but the same bulk numbers from them but the closest one was still £1.50 a tin more expensive.
    Regards Stu.

    Due to the Growing Selection of Air Gun Pellets - Most Air Gun Shops only by 10 or So tins of each pellet

    Large Mail order houses buy them in by the Pallet

    Also some manufactures do not put packaging in Tin - which results in Damage during their transit from

    Manufactures to Buyer - Which can be several Transit trips over 100's of miles

    Also as Heavy Material Lead costs a small fortune to move around - Plus packaging costs money

    If there was that much mark up there would be more Dealers instead of numbers going on a regular basis

    I get mine from Swillington Shooting Supplies too. £68 quid delivered I think for 10 tins of JSB 4.52's last week. Bargain compared to local shops.
