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.

    Helloooo!
    No amount of ft/lbs will put one through that,they'll shred up in most barrells at about the 20 mark.
    You will be able to tell all of your new mates about your rifle,your INmates!!!
    Pleeeeese deactivate your gun for your own sake.
    If you are found owning that rifle,you don't have to be doing anything wrong,it'll be five years in Dartmoor.
    You are obviously a potentially, talented airgun tuner.My personal advice to you would be to buy a quality rifle and concentrate on making it as smooth as possible with the least cocking effort etc. Its a great hobby and nobody wants to see someone starting out fall foul of the law.
    Alternativly get an FAC, They're worth every penny.All you have to do is prove your dedication and responsability.one of which i'm positive you have!!!!:)
    I'm brand new to this forum but already I can see that all the help and advice you will need is around here somewhere!
    P.S I work on Dartmoor,tis a S tty place!!:)

    I dont think any one has asked you... do you have a FAC?

    If you do take your gun down to your local gun shop and get it tested

    If you dont then you are very limited to where you can use and test your gun which is to be exact.... nowhere, unless you like bread and water

    FAC advice

    Hi L, Fac is one of those things that everybody has an opinion on. It's easy to be confused by it all.
    The airgun press seems to make out fac to be an unobtainable "holy grail",they certainly dont encourage people to get one.
    You need to be 21+ and have no police record,even a minor driving offence can count you out.If you have any history of violence, even in self defence, you wont even be considered.
    The most sensible advice i can give would be to contact your local police station and get all the bumf they have,then invite the firearms officer around for a cuppa and get all the info you need in plain English from the horses mouth!!
    Anyone who says fac is too much hassle doesn't love airguns!!:)
    you should meet some of the 'kin morons i know with shotguns and 243's etc.I wouldn't trust them with a mastic gun let alone anything else!!

    Thanks potshot for the advice i think i will give it a go:up:I have never been in trouble with the police or have any convictions ect.What you said about the 14.5 gr not being able to shoot through 1 inch thick book which was them blue Thompsons phone book you said they would shred up at the 20 mark the pellets are mangled once they have gone through the book so i think its around 17-18 mark?:confused:

    Hi L,RWS pellets are best kept under 12ft/lbs,about 11 is most accurate.They are quite an old variety now being designed when 11 was about all you could get out of a springer.I have used them for years and still will.All my guns like them.:)
    As for FAC,hope all goes well,just remember its you that must prove trustworthy not for the police to prove otherwise.
