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.

Advice Struggling to find an air rifle for 10 meter shooting

    Not long ago I asked for some advice on what air rifle to begin with for 10 meter discipline. Most recommended was Air Arms S200. Now last weekend I got my hands on one and have to say it did not feel right for me. Stock to short, to light and just generally didn't feel right.
    If money were no problem (I wish) I'd be looking for a Steyr LG 110 or Feinwerkbau type rifle. Problem is lack of that sort of money. Now what else is there that may do as a starter rifle ?
    Is there anywhere who specialise in 10 meter rifles that anyone knows ?

    10 meter rifle shooting is quite specific, does it have to be a full-on target rifle, or can you use anything?

    I think as long as I keep up going the way I am in enjoying the discipline I will want a full on target rifle, it has to fit properly so really I'm after adjustable comb/stock. It's just the club is so close to me and I can't find a piece of land to shoot on for hunting that the 10m is going to be my main sport.
    I get to use the club guns but they don't fit very well and really want my own as I could then shoot 2 or 3 times a week at various clubs.
    The AirArms MPR FT looks the part but not sure about it or whether it will fit the bill.

    As you are, as I understand it 10 m target shooting you will need a .177 calibre rifle , .22 is not permitted.

    I use a FWB 300s which is 30+ years old, more accurate than I am and a real rifle with a wooden stock.

    Find what you need from a rifle before paying silly money for a rifle with lots of things to adjust. Specialist clothes will/can help but you need to be a good enough shot before they will enhance your shot.

    You can get a good FWB for around £300, but they are sought after..

    I am trying to get my head around 10 meter shooting. Whats the challange.. Wouldn't it be simpler to pick up a stone and throw it at the target.?
    Is it all done standing and shooting unsupported.?

    i use to do 10 metre target. the rifles are very specialised, low power no recoil, it dose,nt sound hard but the need to hit the bull is not easy.
    i use to shoot a FIENWERKBAU . these are not cheap rifles but the fun and skill levels are high, try at a club if you can , ithink you will be supprised.
    Also you dont need a large area which is helpfull.as i use to practise at home in the garage..
