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.

    Hi all

    My 1st post but been enjoying reading through a lot of the forum in the few weeks I`ve been a member. I`m a total beginner so be gentle :)

    I have a .177 Remington Express XP springer. Purely to clear my garden of pigeons and shoot some targets so didn`t need anything special. I seen these ones for up to 12ft.lbs which is just about enough for my gun at 11.5ft.lbs.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Magnetic-K...d=1632253359&s=sports&sr=1-22&ts_id=454855031

    Are they good enough for light use? I see you guys making your own but that`s above me.
    I don`t mind paying a few quid for the right one so I`d appreciate any recommendations.

    Thanks very much lads.

    Andy

    Cheapest option is a cardboard box stuffed with rags or old clothes, quiet too.
    Sellotape target cards to the ends.
    Just keep it completely dry.

    Wolfman offer a steel backing plate for target cards. Seems indestructible but not quiet.

    Spinners?
    Sorry, can't help.

    My current box is about 8 or 9 inches square at the ends and 18 inches long.
    Ish.

    I also found an offcut of a wooden plank which fits in the middle of the box - just in case but no rebounds or through and throughs, so far.
    Survived 500 plus pellets, so far.

    Just reread your post and afraid to say it is illegal to shoot pigeons in your back garden in the vast majority of cases. You need to read the General License with regard to what can and can't be targeted.

    I have that knockdown and use up to 6ft lb pistols like hw45. Also up to 12ft lb rifles, 97 .177 and stingray II .22. I have found with time they can be a bit more fussy to stay down. Needs head shots once more than 1 is down. Still works 2 months+ with almost daily use. The ducks are bent some what with the force, but then so is my pellet catcher(paper target holder ) in centre.
    I also paid £30, considering what target holders cost and other spinners, I say it’s decent value and can recommend from my experience. I’m actually considering getting one more for the garden.

    I use one of those, but I also adapted, a pellet catcher, on a camera tripod, great for plinking in the garden, or zeroing your scope in the field, stuffed with old rags, then a piece of carpet at the front no metal ping, just the sound of my silencer, and that’s really quiet

    Can you use paving slabs made into a box shape.

    This is my plan at some stage then get what ever spinners you like.

    Unless you can get 3mm thick steel I've found the 1.5mm shoots through after not too long. The 3mm are brilliant though.
