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.

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. 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.

    Some forces will accept vermin control as a reason, others won't and you'll only get one for PSG shooting at a club.


    At the end of the day, what can you do with an 8 shot that you can't with a 3 shot?

    For me its more about not having to reload all the time and having a further back up shot(s), handy when bolting rabbits or when shooting them off combine steps. When decoying pigeons or crows i also find that you can fire a couple and then freeze (as apposed to move around reloading) and then shoot again when/if they circle back around

    I've got my Section 1 shottie for game and vermin. Mainly use it for pigeon shooting. Thinking of putting in for a second one with higher mag capacity for practical shotgun. I am right in thinking you can only have a max of two section 1 shotguns?

    You can't use section 1 shotgun to shoot game, wildfowl, or to shoot deer under the farmers exemption it's illegal, vermin only.
    Cheers Andy

    I used to have a 10 shot Mossberg 500, mainly for practical shotgun but also used it for rabbit shooting from a landrover. Main drawback is the change in handling from full to nearly empty as the centre of gravity moves.

    Depends on which Police Area you come under

    Most will Only grant you Section One if you are registered to Shoot Tatical Shotgun under the UKPSA Rules
    And carried out a passed a Shotgun Course

    Number of Guns again depends on Area - Aware of several who own Several Section Ones -

    Might be that they are serving Police & Military ;)

    Crop protection, when all other methods (bangers etc) have failed. That reason passes every time with GMP.

    I still dont see the need other than mine takes more than yours.

    Three in a semi auto was always fine for me. and that was before the ban came in. as it was looming we all just got three shot berettas or remingtons.

    practicality and speed... thats the biggest need.

    especially when considering decoying an area with a lot of birds.

    if the birds are coming in thick and fast (especially in groups of 5-8) between the lulls, then any time spent reloading is wasted time imho.

    if you can fire 3, reload another 3, fire those, reload 2 more and fire those quicker than i can pull my trigger 8 times i will eat my hat...

    :)
