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.

    '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.'

  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've been using my Viper pcp for a while now as my 95k wrecked the scope It had on it so I was reluctant to put another scope on board but I'm getting a wee bit peeved with having to keep pumping the Viper up after every 50 shots or so, so this morning I dug the 95k out again and scoped her up and had a bit of a session on the zero range and am now fully bugged up again !

    I can see that this is gonna cost me a small fortune again as I now need to get it tuned or at least get a V-Mach kit for it, doh, doh, doh, doh, DOH !!!...

    Dont you just hate springers !!!...

    I've been shooting springers for the best part of 25yrs and have only ventured into pcp's over the last few years, pcp's are all well and good but the hassle that goes with em can get annoying sometimes !!!

    You can't beat a good springer for ease and reliability !!!

    Get a Tinbum kit and fettle it yourself. The HW95 is a doddle.

    I keep seeing this about pcps but I fail to see the hassle, I top my pcp with air before I go shooting and come back with bags full of dead things, where's the hassle in that? No hassle of cocking and placing a pellet in the breech whilst trying to keep your eye on your quarry, no worry about how I'm holding the gun just a simple flick of a bolt no need to take your eye off the target, 60 full power shots, no hassle. You can't beat a springer for ease? Erm ok well we will have to agree to disagree there.

    I had BSA & Weihrauch springer's years ago and loved them but then I got my first PCP (Falcon FN) and never looked back. Just as Meteor62 says I check the air before I go out, top up if needed and I've never run out whilst hunting (b****r I shouldn't have said that :eek:) and having a 10 shot magazine has to be another huge benefit.

    So they're lighter, without recoil, more accurate (IMO), quicker/easier to reload, don't damage scopes, great with NV etc. so where's the drawbacks........now on the purists to educate me :rolleyes:

    You'll notice in my original thread that the issue is with having to keep pumping the flamin thing up, I've got no issue with shooting a pcp and agree with you all on most aspects of owning one it's just that some mornings I'll have a wander around my shoot and nothing really presents itself so rather than just give up and go home I like to have a bit of a practice session but just as I'm getting into the zone suddenly all the pellets are gone and it's running low on air which tends to put a bit of a damper on things for me other than that I like em !!!

    A springer on the other hand will continue to shoot until I've had enough of cocking and loading it !!!
