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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

Plinking - Pfffttt And Spring...

    Thought I'd see just how well the Ugly Humbug would stand up against my benchmark, the .177 99s - a rifle that will cloverleaf at 35 yards. This comparison wasn't about outright accuracy however, more about handling and pointability. The plinking range at the farm offers an endless selection of gravel and small bits of chalk, ideal for the exercise. Also ideal for the exercise, the 1.5x Weaver on the 99s and the Nikko on Ugly dialled to 2.5x. I was using AADE in both rifles, a brand they're both more than happy with.

    The 99s is my favourite rifle, it points superbly and balances perfectly with the K1.5-1 mounted low. Snapshooting pebbles no bigger than half an inch, from 5 to 20-odd yards is something the 99s excels at, but to be fair - although much heavier - Ugly is nicely balanced and no slouch to aim either. In this situation, did the pfffttt-gun have any advantage over the springer? Not in the slightest - in fact I shot marginally better with the 99s.

    One thing I must mention regarding the utter lack of feedback from the pfffttt-gun - bad habits can creep in unnoticed. A springer will tell you if you get sloppy with your technique - a pfffttt-er doesn't. Beware of the Dark Side... :thumb:

    A pcp does mask your mistakes you're right. Keep alternating between both and it will keep you on your toes :thumb:

    Hi Ian Buddy.

    I think you need more of a good reason not to buy a 100
    than a good why you should.
    If I lived next door to a pub I would pop in quite regularly, even daily no doubt. Draught Abbot is like an 100 and a can of Abbot is for convenience sake, similar to a 97.
    I have to go to a lot of trouble for pub pint, they're shut half the time. If I could fill my bottle as easy as buying a pint, but I can't. That's about the difference.
    My Mother she's 94. Ida, could shoot a 100k like yours, really quite as well as you Ian. More than likely. But Ida wouldn't manage my 97.

    I didn’t think you could hold a pfft gun due to the object horror of even being in the presence of one, bit like Dracula and crosses lol

    Look at it this way, the gun you want to despise is seemingly almost as good as the one you love with minimal practice. 100% agree a PCP masks a lot though, it's quite depressing to have that delusion stripped away, but I enjoy a challenge.
