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.

  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.

Good news This Will Be My Next Choice

    Many of you will know that I recently treated Mrs TinCan to an FX Wildcat MK2 Synthetic...

    Wildcat1.jpg

    Wildcat2.jpg


    She absolutely loves it and I was really taken by the length of the Bullpup.
    So much so, that I decided to sell my R10 setup and go down the Bullpup route myself.

    But, I love my wood and, on reflection, this is going to be my next rifle...

    Ultra SE.jpg

    Don't try to put me off or sway me into something else, it won't work. ;)

    This is my style of rifle. Lovely wood and is as short as Mrs TinCan's Wildcat.

    Yes, I know the biggest 'gripe' about this rifle is the small air cylinder and low shot count per fill - about 40-50 shots in .177 but, does that worry me? Not in the least. It's the size, the weight and the lovely style that I like. :thumb:

    The muzzle break will be replaced with (at worse) a Weihrauch or (better) a Huggett Belita moderator.

    Even better, I can still use my existing magazines. :thumb:

    No, sorry, I won't be swayed. I'm besotted with this in the same way I was when I bought my R10. :whoo:

    Good choice. Lovely, simple, accurate. What’s not to like.
    Bung a decent reg in it and you’ll be happy you did.

    I think you can fit a slightly longer cylinder to these as well, BSA Scorpion I think it was...

    Get a slim silencer made for it by the chap on here (can't remember his name now) and Bob's yer uncle, more shots... :thumb:

    Not poor old R10 at all. My R10 is far from old and I will definitely miss it when it sells with the setup I have. But, I must go with my insinct. :thumb:

    I've also got to try and keep up with Mrs TinCan's shooting. :D

    Thanks, Peter.

    Loads of people tried to get me to buy a different rifle for Mrs TinCan when she had her heart set on the Wildcat. She now has a Wildcat.

    I have my heart set on a BSA Ultra SE Multishot. Guess what? ;) :thumb:
