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.

    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.'

  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 guys this is my first post here, I am from NI and I recently bought a bsa meteor mk7, in NI I need a firearms certificate for an airgun regardless of the power, I believe my gun is just imported from the mainland where it is sub 12ft-ib, so my question is, how can I get more power from it since I need a FAC to have it anyway? Im not doing anything illegal, you can private message me if you want.

    Regards

    Legality aside the platform isn't designed to run over 12ftlb and while you might get a couple more ftlb out of it, you'll likely also significantly worsen its firing manners and accuracy in doing so. My best advice would be that if you want something that exceeds 12ftlb, buy a rifle that's intended to produce / is already producing that sort of muzzle energy.

    Your skill is the key factor in determining humane hunting ranges, not the rifle.

    That will depend on how powerful it is but more importantly how accurately you can shoot it, probably no more than 25 yards. You could always service it and replace any worn parts to get it into tip top condition which won't hurt but it's not ever going to be powerful, best to just enjoy it for what it is.

    Yea I should get practicing with it and be as accurate as possible! I just intend to shoot crows and magpies on my farm so it wont be extreme ranges or anything! The fibre optics sights on this gun are amazing! Thats what sold me it!

    John Bowkett used to build a Meteor that ran just sub 12ft/lbs
    I have one up a corner somewhere but haven't had chance to look at what John did with it.

    My meteors run best at about 10 ft-lb. I would happily shoot it to 30 yards but I've owned and used it for years so very familiar with it
