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.

  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.

    I have decided a .22 TXHC is the only rifle I need so I have bought myself a few spare seals, a spare scope and I am buying spare tins of pellets now and then. This lot should see me out for a few years!

    Iam the same pal I now only have a tx hc
    Iam a convert from Hw's never thought I would be without a hw but after sending a 95 back twice and still not been happy with it and the 99 cannibal which had a taste for eating itself. A 80 with a patchy finish iam out. Imo air arms from the box are in a different league. Finish and engineering
    Wise are much better.

    I’m always very envious of people that have the mental capability of just owning one. And I mean that in the nicest possibly way!

    It would be so nice! Maybe in a year or two once I get this obsession / addiction out of my system and something else takes over but so far 2 years strong (weak)

    I want to but I can’t help but buy them!

    Great rifle to keep mate, well stocked for all eventualities! Good drills

    Good thinking and makes sense.
    I’ve too many rifles now, they seem to be tucked away everywhere (mainly older bsa imps, cadets and cadet majors) so my thinking is the same as you. Thin them out and keep them down to my fwb300u and hw30s.
    Wifey will be happy

    Good thinking Micah,

    I think the time will come when I will downsize as well. (But not just yet). I will definitely keep. The HW100 T.

    Regards.

    Thanks everyone :up: I only do a bit of pest control at a farm on a weekend and go to my local club for a plink now and then so a .22 Springer is just the job. The most rifles I have owned at once was 5 and I never hardly shot them. I will try and stick to one but as you all know it is hard :eek:.

    Yes mate If you aren't put off by the weight I don't think you can buy a better rifle but I do prefer them in .22.

    Do you view the forum on your phone? If so turn it landscape rather than portrait. More info comes up. I only realised this the other day... :oops:
