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.

    '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.'

  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.

    I've tried them and they are good, but no better in my guns than JSB/AA/Sovereigns, I think it would be worth carrying as the importer wants £14 a tin, which as a one off to try is ok, but it's not sustainable if you start using them as it's getting on for twice the price of JSB and they are not twice as good.

    (8.48gn BTW)

    Apparently these are really good and I would really like to try them but everywhere I have tried was out of stock. Be great if you can supply them.:up:

    I would give them a try but only if the price was competitive with JSBs, etc.

    We've seen some pictures with the tin saying 8.48 grain, but the list we were supplied has them listed as 8.3 grain.
    We will listen to you lovely lot who have used them and go with the fact they must be 8.48 as the tin says.
    We may well have some in towards the end of next week.

    Also, i'm going to do a shameless plug of our BSA Open Day which is Saturday 25th May. Hope to see as many of you as possible. Got plenty of BSAs to test down our range.

    recently ordered a tin from the importer but not had delivery yet and that was a fortnight ago. They were .177 heavy.

    If they turn out to be good in my Rapid then I would purchase more but preferably at a cheaper price.

    I’d be interested in giving them a go, especially at the prices you quote (cheaper than I’ve seen elsewhere).

    Given that they’ve won about 20 Olympic medals, they should be more than good enough for me ;)

    It would be great if gunshops, such as our friends at Countryway, would sell sample amounts rather than leave this to specialists like Pellet Perfect. Like a 'Pick-and-Mix' for shooters, we would be able to walk out with 50 of this and 50 of that and the gun shop would, hopefully, generate customers curious to try new ammo without the need for us to pay postage.

    I'd take a tin of both the 8.48 and the heavies at that price just to give them a go.

    I'd be interested, depends on postage costs.

    Also would be more than interested in some sample packs of them - maybe of a few different size/weights.

    A pick and mix counter in store sounds like an idea, might be something i will look in to.
    We used to make sample packs but with the popularity and the time they took a member of staff to put together it didn't warrant assigning a member of staff dedicated to it.

    I ordered 10 tins of the 9.5grn 4.50 ones for £100 delivered at the shooting show last Saturday from The Shooting Party for the guys at the range. They’d tried them and really liked them, I’ve not tried them in my Dreamline 0.177 but will report back when I have

    If you do go down this route, may I suggest scoops/cups for the pellets? If you find/make one which holds 50 for each size (most .177s and most .22s being roughly equal in volume) it would save a lot of time counting them.

    I don't really know if this would work but at this moment it seems like it should (to me). :up:
