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.

    if i was you and had money to spend on a rifle i would buy a good quality second hand rifle.a new rifle for 100 quid with scopes wont bring much excitement ...and if you do get into shooting more seriously your 100 pound rifle wont be good enough by far and you will end up buying what you should of bought in the first place..i did it my self i went from rifle to rifle .then i got my hands on a hw97k with nice scopes for 200 quid...just wished someone would of told me this as it would of saved me a lot of money..bargins are out there a good old bsa supersport would be a good starting gun.they go second hand for about a 100 i got one fitted with a gas ram for 45 ....good luck bud

    I would save your money and get a decent PCP when you can afford, you are only going to want one further down the line!! There are lots of good rifles sold on this forum for good money, so hold back for a while it will be worth the wait.
    welcome to this GREAT forum by the way. atb Paul.

    As Matty says the Hatsan 55s is a good gun for the money - £100 for a full powered springer aint too shabby.

    You could hang around for a "better" rifle to come up in your price bracket but true bargains are rare and they get snapped up real quick by those that recognise a bargain.

    I bought a cracking Little rifle for a disabled lad few months back ,it was used sitting in the corner of a local gun shop .60.00. Gamo Magnum 3000 full power .22 great safety within the trigger guard for ease and safety bear trap so no accidents whilst cocking it.
    Yes it had a tad of twang but I soon sorted it for him.
    The accuracy really impressed me too.light n reasonably quiet.
    Pop around your local field sports shops see what's going used.
    Plenty decent springers on the racks usually and most older era rifles were better made.
