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.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    With @Jonkem working at securing a rat permission and me cheekily hopeful I'll be able to tag along for some rodent fun, I'll realistically need to consider a rifle for the job.

    Requirements will be -
    • .22 or .25 (my current crop are all .177 and carry the bigger risk of over penetration and ricochet damage)
    • PCP (I'm not good enough with a springer to confidently/humanely make a shot)
    • The cheaper the better but it needs to be fit for purpose
    • Lightweight and pointable
    • Easy to clean/maintain
    On the radar at the moment I've got a couple of options - Kozak Shorty in .22 which I could swap with my .177, HW100 Carbine (again, could swap with my .177), Kral NP02, Ultra Multishot.

    Give me some ideas, lots pics please of your setups ;)

    Personaly i would favour a good .22 Rapid over just about anything thing else for rat shooting , pop a cheap nikko mountmaster 4x40 ao on it so you can focus down for real close range stuff and bobs your uncle so to speak ,

    Of your options I'd try to swap your huma kojak with another huma kojak in .22, good lightweight ratting gun and tough enough for working in the dirt. Also a good match for a 008 or HUD. If I had one available I'd swap it with you as yours is a good gun.

    Sell the BSA to fund a 008, LE032, 3 mode T38, litter picker, wellies, bendy bucket and lessons in shooting a .22

    Your 100k is too good to swap for a .22 you know nothing about, I'd be very upset if you did that.
    As you are probably intending using your BP for rabbits you could use some of the proceeds from the BSA sale for converting your 100k to a .22.

    There you go, job done :up:

    Now there's one from left field, though my budget would mean I'd be buying a pig :p

    Uragan would be perfect but for the price and the fact I'd be too worried about getting it dirty :facepalm:

    Ultra? I've never shot one but it seems idea on paper!

    2C133821-43F9-4900-877A-B58109AC703A.jpeg Use the Kozack @Herbie87 , been using mine in .177 the last month or so with red light and now NV as pictured. No problems killing them and no richochets, used in tin sheds and around the farmyard.
    sounds like your Kozack has no issues
    ( like mine ) if you’ve got a good one hold onto it and use it.

    The Ko(z)ak :p is rare on the used market in .22, let alone Huma reg'd. That'd be like trying to find the proverbial needle!

    I've decided it'll be an NV008 LRF at some point, as and when they are sensible money. In the short term and for the rodents I'll use my HUD. I really wouldn't cope with the look of that LE032 box hanging off the side of the scope :facepalm:

    absolutely NO ‘need’ for .22...
    This stops them instantly and far faster from trigger to impact

    I actually tried my FAC .22 huntsman on some rats in the open area near kennels... and it made absolutely no difference to the s410. Whack...dead :thumb:

    I don't doubt it for a second

    To be fair this would be the ideal scenario, but it's quite a sensitive area where it just wouldn't be worth the risk.

    What NV scope is that?

    Have you tried a swap thread? You could always allow the huma money in the swap :up:

    As if you're going to be happy with a vertical splash :D:D:D
