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.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Tell me about it ???

    S200 .22 and more than happy , Then saw a BB S10 , Got one in a Thumbhole stock, Year later we ain't getting on so sold it and thought " Yep stick with the AA S200 "

    Now i have a FX Cyclone .22 and just got a Huntsman in the Girly Calibre !!!!!!!!

    Oh and still got the S200 !!

    So much for the missus saying " why more than one gun , You can only shoot one at a time !! "

    Obviously i countered her comment with the standard reply " Is that so ? How many bags and pairs of shoes do you have ? You can only use one at a time ......................... "

    Shorty

    i started with a hw95 to hunt and hft, joined a club and got drawn in to FT so added a s400, then got a ev2 and added about £1200 of bits to get it right for me,

    tuned the 95 as thats my "forever" gun so i only have 2 guns but i have near on 3k in them:eek: so i cant afford anymore guns, not that i need another,

    still got my eye on a old airsporter thats in need of restoration tho, just to tinker with and sell on

    When I had my FAC and SCG and had 'several' firearms, a golf-playing friend once asked me what I found so fascinating about guns. I asked him what he found so fascinating about golf clubs. "Nothing," he said, "but I need them to play golf."

    "Yes," I said, "and I need guns to shoot."

    "So if it's not about the guns, why do you need so many?"

    "How many golf clubs do you carry in your bag?"

    Yes you do need a .22 for the short distance rabbit on the 18th green, a .20 for the medium length one on the par 4 12th, and a .177 for the long distance par 5, hey I have not got a .20 or .25!

    Bought an S400 a couple of years back. My first airgun (I'll ignore the Gat!) Learnt how to service it, spent a fortune at Rowan, dressing it up. Bought a Huggett cos they look cool.

    Bought a Supersport to do up. Finished it, all sorted.

    Fancied a pistol, so bought a broken CP88, and got it perfect.

    Read a thread about Superstars. Never heard of them before, but they're underlevers and I didn't have one of those....so I bought one and refurbished it.

    Only reason I'm not buying anymore for now is that I've also got a series landrover. Bought a cheap Rover V8 engine for it a couple of weeks back for £150. Bargain if you ignore the fact that I've just spent £90 on a carb rebuild kit. £40 on some second hand exhaust manifolds, £40 on a conversion plate and £150 on an engine crane as I've no other way of getting it out the back of my pick-up.

    .......oh and no garage to rebuild or fit it in.

    Good job my wife thinks it all cost no more than £20 a piece (fair enough, I think the crane might be stretching her belief somewhat).

    I think my last pistol purchase was a bit of a spur of the moment thing. Not sure pistols are for me yet but I've had little chance of outside practise due to all this rain.
