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.

    Been shooting close on 50 yrs now and always with springers at 22. Now I know nought about computers and the interwebby thing but my lad found the forum site for me signed me up put it on my favs list (so i could find it again ) and I started reading about all these pcps and such and went and bought a hw 100 kt in 22 and was gobsmacked by it.
    Went and bought the lad a mmc ultra in 22 (he’s now discovered beer and women bloody fool so im using that as well).
    Then bought a cheap tench regged scorpion in .22 about 6 wks back on the webby thing found a aa s 400 f classic 6 mths warranty still left rowan eng multi shot conversion 2 mags £180 set of sights hard case one of those hamster things plus a few other bits of bling for £450 (but heres the catch its in 177. thought about it long and hard (then thought are b******s you only live once ill get it).
    I’ve had a few wks now so yesterday met a forum memb at his club to have a go with it.
    Bought 500 super domes made some targets and had a go (first time ever with a 177). Filled it to 200 bar and went to zero it at 30 yds after about 15 shots wanted to wrap it round a tree it was Censored.
    Then ozzy j was zeroing his newly tuned hw 95 with jsb exacts and he couldnt hit a ban door either. The bloke who tuned his gun told him it was best with sup domes but he had none so we swapped our ammo.
    Filled mine back up to 200 bar and tried again (pure Censored again) then the gun hit its sweetspot at 180 and fu@ me it was unreal (5 shot groups at 30 yds inside a 5p with ease.
    The same at 20 yds and out to 40 yds, but the amazing for me was the difference in holdover and under between 177 and 22 I was totally shocked in the difference.
    Now the acid test will be next weekend because im going to take it hunting and leave my 22s at home so then well see what shes made of (lets hope it all goes well) over the crono its doing 11.6

    I don't think you will look back mate to be fair.

    I was the same started with .22 springers a long time ago now because all I use is .177 pcps and all I do is hunt, the difference is I would say the trajectory is on par with a .22 doing more like 20 ft/ibs.

    So hit your quarry in the right place it will be just as dead as if it was hit with a rimfire, doesn't matter about the power its all about getting that pellet in the right place and .177 at sub 12 is definitely the flattest shooting calibre so more effective inmo, anyone who says its not killing what they shoot, simply isn't hitting their quarry in the right place.

    I heard people say .177 is no good on rabbits and I agree lol its flipping devastating on them!

    It was a good morning and a result on the pellet swap front. Great to meet you and good to see you NOT wrap that rather nice s400 round a tree:D It just needed feeding the right stuff and then it was grouping fantastically.
