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.

    I've got a powerful CO2 pistol - probably not recommended for hunting as it's only about 4 ft/lbs depending on the temperature etc ...

    Generally pistols don't get any more powerful than mine - it's a Sheridan EB22. I think the only thing that beats it would be the Weihrauch HW45 which is up to the legal limit.

    Like I said - not that good for hunting but I use mine as a ' finish off ' pistol - that is to say if I shoot something but don't kill it, I can finish it off with a quick .22 to the head as not to cause it any suffering. I also use it frequently for plinking and some informal target shooting.

    On a lighter side, pistols are good if you just want to plink and even for target shooting - mine gets 4 inch groups from 25 yards which isn't bad all things considered - in fact it can probably do a lot better but the pistol stance isn't very stable.

    The open sights on my model arn't too bad, but to improve accuracy I've fitted a Hawke SD 30 red dot using some intermounts - this gives good results, and it's definitely an improvement over the standard open sights.

    So to conclude - pistols are good - with a red dot or scope they're better - I got mine zeroed in at 15 yards. They're more for targets than pray.

    James.

    Pistols

    Hi Fog, I own a HW45 and a Webley nemesis with .177+.22 barrels for both. I use mostly open sights but I've got a laser on the 45 which is really handy for target aquisition in dingy conditions.RWS pellets for both.
    Imo the 45 is the only pistol suitable for hunting,unless you can afford the likes of a FN8 or similar.
    .22 in the Nemesis just bounces off rats.I should imagine it still smarts a bit!!!

    I have the 45.
    I am not sure whether to put scope or red dot on.
    I have the BSA scopemaster 9-13mm mounts (as i found Hawke mounts just did not fit?) in 30mm

    Now its choices...Red dot or scope. MMMMMM!:rolleyes::confused:

    Scopes on 45's

    Hi Fog, Scopes on 45's make speedy cocking difficult. I've done away with the scope and got a laser. It sits further forward out of the way of your (red) palm:D

    Apology

    Hi Fog, It appears that when I made the comment "(red palm:D)"
    I could have been mistaken for calling you a W****R.
    I was just referring to the fact that the HW45 has sharp edges and makes the hand sore after a good rat session's rapid fire.
    I didn't mean any offence.
    Cheers

    HW45

    My HW45 has a Crossman laser on it. Keeps zero (not much use, cos I'm quite a poor shot with it). If I'm honest, I find it hard to be consistent when it recoils so much and is really grip sensitive.

    More practice me thinks.....
