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.

  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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    Hi All,
    How do I go about getting permission to shoot?
    And I am right handed but shoot left handed due to poor eye sight in my right eye, do I need a lefty specific or ambi? Thinking of a Theoban but willing to look at all.
    Forgive my ignorance but can you get multi shot springers now? And if so which are good.
    Cheers

    If you're doing all you shooting from the left shoulder a left handed or ambi gun will do; personally I don't like the compromise involved in ambi guns so go for left handed varients only.. most Air Arms guns are available in true left hand, although the selection from other manufacturers is a lot better than it used to be for us ;) Don't like Theoben personally but each to their own..

    To the best of my knowledge nobody has produced a hunting-worthy multishot springer other than the Theoben SLR98 (if they still make it) and the BSA Goldstar (which ceased production years ago and has a crap mag design). If you want multishot you'll need a PCP.

    Don't do a lot of rough shooting so others will be able to inform you better than i can.

    HTH :)

    Hiya,

    There's a thread of hints and tips on permissions:

    http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums/hunting/77147-getting-hunting-permission-hints-tips.html

    I guess whether you need an ambidextrous stock/action depends on the individual rifle and your tastes; I have a friend who shoots lefty but does so with right-handed rifles as he just got used to the feel of them and is fine with the cheek-rest being on the other side of the stock, etc.. Some rifles have a handed (i.e. mirror image) action depending on whether they are left or right-handed models. Also, safety catches and the likes may be in an inconvenient place for you on a right-handed rifle. Either way, these are things you can usually get used to if you don't personally mind them.

    There are plenty of folk here who know much more about airguns than I, so hopefully someone will be along soon to be a little more specific... ;)

    The new BSA mags fit the Goldstar and work fine apparently. If they perform as well as in the PCPs, they should be faultless.

    Hi i had a friend who lost the sight in his right eye and try as he might he could not shoot left handed so he had a custom crossover stock made so he could mount the gun right handed and use his left eye it worked very well for him but that was on a shotgun don't know how well it would work with a rifle.
