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.

    As Summer is approaching, i'm going to be getting my Air Rifle out again soon


    I bought a S410 last year, but have always had a "soft spot" for a Daystate, ever since November 2012, when i bought myself a Panther (couldn't really afford it, but it was gorgeous!), but sold it a few months later due to being worried about damaging the rubber coating on the stock.


    I'm now debating on getting another Panther, Air Wolf MCT or the 12ft/lb Wolverine.


    My question is ... should i trade in my S410 and buy one of the Daystates, or just keep the S410?


    I really can't decide :(


    I want it for target shooting in my Garden


    I'm going to pop up my local gun shop at some point to have a proper look at and hold the Air Wolf and Wolverine


    Here she is ..

    BTW - my gun is NOT for sale! ... (yet)

    Its up to you mate but sometimes how much shops offer you for your old gun your better off keeping it or selling it private ...it depends how bad you want a daystate lol atb

    Hi There, If you only want a rifle for plinking in the garden why are you contemplating spending a heap of cash on a Daystate,???? Good as they are reputed to be it makes no sense to me! The AA S410 is more than good enough for what you intend to do with a rifle. Atb Paul.

    That is a gorgeous S410 and worth more than the £300 the shop has offered you. If you decide to change, sell it privately here and then go with cash in hand to obtain whatever you decide upon.

    Personally I'd stick with the AA. Is spending all that extra money on a Daystate going to make shooting that much better of an experience? If you have decided on the DS, sell the AA privately, and, as stated above, you'll get a good deal more than three hundred notes for it.

    I just don't understand why people come on here asking for advice on this type of question.

    If you want it and you can afford it...BUY IT!
    if you can not afford it....DON'T BUY IT!

    First like you say go and shoulder the daystate that you want as you may not like it as much as it looks, I find the air arms fits me better than any other gun iv'e ever used and I like many on here have wasted £000 buy buying on looks alone. My advice keep the air arms and save your cash! just as accurate and less to go wrong but then that's my opinion. Enjoy whatever you deceide.

    Hi

    This is a hobby for you, it's about how it makes you feel, it does not really matter if it makes a load of difference in your garden, the fact that you had one - sold it, and now want another, means you will not be happy till you have bought another one!

    You will be given loads of advice, and mine is do what your heart desires, because you are only here once, and on the grand scale of things the price of the gun will be recouped minus depreciation - which is probably less than you spend on eating out/tyres/phone contract....etc.etc....go on, you know you want to?

    If you do go the daystate route bud, do yourself a favour and do as others have mentioned and sell your AA privately...you will get more than the £300 the shop offered you.

    Keep the AA and buy a DS. You know it makes sense.
