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.

  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.

    A remember having one and a gat gun, I remember taking a chunk of skin from between my thumb and index finger when cocking the gat gun once. And the cocking lever on the g10 just snapped in half. Hours of fun though.

    I see there's a silver one for sale on gun* at the moment for a very tempting £95!!! :eek: I have a few various GATS for nothing more than nostalgia but I wouldn't go more than £20,there's nothing better than actually firing one to destroy all those boyhood memory's of all those million to one trick shots we could do every time :s

    I got one too, keep being tempted to get rid of it either in the bin or sell it but nostalgia takes over and I put it away.

    I had one of the silver ones with the fibre optic sight and an extended barrel. Called something daft like a G10 Silver Hawk, or something.

    IIRC it was the "Laserhawk" ;)

    (The 80's-tastic name of which conveiniently reminds me of this and this :D)


    A mate had the boggo black G10 while expenditure of an extra £4.95 or so scored me the "Deluxe" G1015; with extended /faux-ported barrel, extra magazine capacity (IIRC 28 ***) and tasteful "wood effect" grips.

    The second airgun I ever owned :)

    Be under no illusion though that attempting to claw yourself back to a former childhood state by buying yourself another will most likely end in abject disappointment..

    The only childhood indulgence I've so far found to buck this trend in the quest for nostalgia is Ulysses 31; which remains s**t hot to this day :cool:

    There was one on the free adds site a few days ago listed at £20 .. i had one when i was younger they were nothing to shout and scream about they were about as powerful as the gat gun .. actually possibly worse thinking about it. i'd rather have a Webley Tempest they were brilliant guns. One of my friends had one in 177 guise which i shot on a few occasions and really liked it ... always wanted one but never happened but there's still time i suppose.

    Answer me this, was the Tempest only done in 177 guise because for a long time i believed that to be the case but a few days ago there was a Tempest on the free adds site and it was listed as being a 22, i thought the 22 version of the Tempest is the Webley hurricane ?
