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.

    Hi
    Really like my TX200HC Mk3, in the shop I held both and settled (for me) on the TX.

    I prefer break barrels for hunting due to speed/ease of use and lower weight. A decent break barrel is every bit as accurate as an underlever, but its a personal choice thing.

    How about one of everything?:)

    The trouble with questions such as you are asking, is that whatever answers you get will be purely subjective, it really comes down to what you like, as far as know they are both very good rifles, my own choice if it came to it, would be the TX200, because.......

    1. It's a British company.

    2. I like the style of it.

    3. I have heard pretty much nothing but good about them

    But like I said, that is just me.:)

    Had them all - prefer break barrels by far.

    Lighter, simpler cocking and loading, I can shoot break barrels at least as well (or equally badly, depending on your point of view ;) ) as underlever guns.

    I have a 95 and a tx200 and have to say for hunting the hw95 is very accurate and light enough to carry for hours. For targets the extra weight of the tx200 wins out every time (might change my mind once Jack has got his hands on the 95 though:D)

    Something else to consider is how much dexterity you have in the old digits, I struggle like hell to load underlevers with my short, fat fingers and if its cold its nigh on impossible to get a pellet loaded. As it happens I have a 95 and its more than accurate enough

    By the way I'm reading a book 'hunting for air gunners by john darling', good book and he says a lot of pro's for a break barrel for hunting, he has a tuned 95.

    I love my Hw95k but I prefer my Hw98... Infact it would be the last gun I would sell out of all my springers.
