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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    Ta for posting - it's always a pleasure to read Ted's write-ups and he's covered a lot of new stuff..

    I quite like the look of the new FWB (although the proof will be in the fiddling) and if our overlords decide we're mature enough to own semi-auto airguns (I bet we can all guess the answer before they've opened their mouths :rolleyes:) I will have a Steyr Hunting 5 Automatic :cool:

    Why wait , what makes you think you can't buy a Steyr Hunting 5 Automatic ?.
    I've got one , legally shipped in ( even opened at UK customers / boarder agency ) no problem , got a second on the way again no problem .
    i know some one who got one a couple of weeks back , and another who has got the short coming in the next few weeks.
    that's not including the 12 or so that other people have got , or the people with other makes of semi auto.

    Away from lap top for a while but can do on my return.
    in the mean time if any one wants a Hunting 5 semi or the new Scout go to Krale Sheitsport Holland .
    great prices , fantastic service.
    As for how is it , what can I say , same as my standard 5 , but with the ability to take a second shot really quickly without moving if required .

    That looks a great site, thanks for the info. One question though, how do you specify the 16j power option for the UK?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Krale speaks perfect English drop them a mail one the best eu suppliers out there but be warned warranty s none existent and YOU need to be competent at working on your gun orderd as they will be well under the 12ftlb for custom reasons YOU then need to set the power to where u feel comfortable near the 12ftlb law

    Whys that Dave , ask for 16J and you have 12 FT/Lbs , mine have never bean over , never had to work on them at all .
    all ways 11.2--11.6
    Dutch arnt restricted like we are in the UK , just tell them the power setting you want and they will deliver ( delivery at the moment is €13 door to door , how good is that.
    steyr , simple to work on , plus they have some fantastic instructional videos on line.
    16juel works out at 11.8 FT/Lbs.
    So totally legal in UK.

    That's a matter of opinion hopefully soon to be cleared up by the firearms review.
    The law does not say it needs to be over 12ftlbs just capable of being over 12ftlbs to be section 5.
    At 11.8 ftlbs there is a hell of a risk it may go over if tested. If it does get tested and go over you may as well have tried to import an AK47 the sentence is the same.

    The law also says any weapon that has been manufactured as, or that at any time has been section 5 can never be converted and moved to a lower category.
    Exactly how this applies to air weapons has never been cleared up. ( the reason some people think semi autos are illegal and many company's fit a smooth bore barrel to their semi autos for the uk market to get around the law)

    So if you decide to import one it makes sense to stay well clear of the legal limit in my view.
    Cheers Andy
