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.

    Probably the springer,but it's probably harder to cock,poor build quality and nasty recoil.

    I don't like spring pistols for the fact that they are hard to cock, and recoil when firing. I've used a few spring pistols before, but never owned one for this very reason.

    The P17 is good value for money, and is recoilless. The 1377 is a good contender too, and it's power is variable to how many times you pump it. These are at your budget end of the pneumatic scale scale, then going to the HW40, Alecto, and HW75. All of which can mount optics if you don't want to use open sights. A pneumatic pistol will be as reliable as a spring pistol, providing the maintenance instructions are not ignored.

    Hopefully someone will be able to give you some springer advice.

    Forget spring pistols.go with a crosman 2240.one of the most powerful pistols and co2 so you've got recoil.1377 crosman already spoke about is also very good.people will go on about weihrauch hw45 and hw75 but I think there knowhere near as accurate.probably just started an arguement lol.oopps

    The 75 isn't a Springer and is probably the most accurate,out of the box pistol without going into stupid money,the HW45 is debatable , I can't shoot it ,others can.

    having owned and loved the hw45 for the beast that is was I can honestly say that
    I find my 1377 more accurate due to the lack of recoil

    You 'either got it or you aint'.

    I'm pretty bloody good with my Hw45. Once you suss the hold out it's really not that hard. After all real pistols recoil a lot more.....

    Tried two 45's managed reasonable accuracy but it's very unforgiving.

    I find I am somewhat bemused by what appears to be quite a number of people who don't seem to want to learn how to deal with recoil. Having shot all sorts of powder burning revolvers and pistols in me time, I find it very odd if a gun don't recoil. It's just a skill that takes a modicum of learning, I suppose that these days most people want instant gratification, and want to be crack shots from the get go.

    If a pistol has half decent power say 5.5 foot pounds?? I would have thought that the pellet has long gone from the barrel before any recoil is encountered? That kind of suggests to me that there is something amiss with the way the shooter is taking the stance, the grip on the gun, and the shooters aim??

    Hey! I could be all wrong, perhaps someone could enlighten me?

    Why should we learn to deal with recoil when we can get a recoiless air pistol that runs at the same power as a Springer,same thing with rifles,it's too easy to just pick up a PCP,point and shoot.

    Why should you? Hmmmm, good question. I suppose there is no reason why you should, other than it's a skill that might serve you well in all aspects of your shooting, after all, if you move on from air rifles / pistols, into the realms of powder burners, you are going to encounter recoil.

    I am not grinding any axes here, I don't care what people want to shoot as long as it's legal. I just feel that taking the easy option like as not wont teach you anything. For those that might say, "well I don't want to learn anything" well I just feel sorry for they.

    Each person has their own preferences for me hitting the target with the least fuss floats my boat. For others, they like to feel a kick and master the way the gun shoots.

    Airguns and powder guns have different recoil characteristics anyway

    That's different ;) I can learn to use gears,from previous experience with the HW45,I'm not going to be able to shoot that straight,personal preference,for me SSPs and PCPs are going to put the pellet where you point with very little skill,sometimes I go back to my springers just to mix it up a little,now,if I could shoot springer pistols,I would probably prefer it but I can't so for me SSP ever time.

    Surely it's simply a matter of giving the time to learn?
