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.

    I'm not an experienced "airgunner" but I have recently been going to my local Rifle and pistol club. The club provides for all types of shooting from air to rimfire etc. Now I have been having a go at 10 meter air rifle and have found it very challenging and for some reason it appeals to me.
    What I have found is that I suppose this applies to most disciplines is the fitting of the gun seems to be very important. I have the use of the club guns but feel that if I am to take the 10 meter seriously I need my own gun. Now can any of you recommend a rifle within my limited budget of £4-500, or a dealer who may specialise in 2nd hand 10 meter rifles. Bear in mind stock etc needs to be adjustable and I'm nearly 6', and the rifle needs to be lighter rather than heavier due to back and neck damage,
    All suggestions and comments gratefully received

    yep PCP are fully adjustable (best take it to a smithy though)

    its just a matter of doing something to the regulator.
    ie make it use less air or more air in a shot;)

    Cheers T.C. I just want to shoot and try to improve my skills, there's also an FT club near me which I want to try, it's just that I love shooting and now have time to shoot. I must say the 10 meter club I've been going to is fine and there's an old boy there who really knows his onions and has "coached" me for a couple of sessions. I've really enjoyed listening and trying to take on board what he has to tell me. Can't wait for next Monday evening. I also get the use of the club guns and have been using one with a relatively small stock and tried one with a longer stock which fitted much better. I admit I don't know much about air rifles but do understand the importance of a gun fitting correctly. Next Monday I'll take some measurements of the guns I've tried and see whether the Air Arms fit the bill.

    Air Arms guns are now fitted with anti-tamper...so no they aren't adjustable.....unless they go back to Air Arms.

    So if I was to use an Air Arms rifle for 10 meter then I would probaly be looking at having it tuned down then to be within 10 meter regs?
    Maybe a question for the old boy at the club.

    the gun shop should be able to order one from air arms that is set by air arms to the power limit you require.

    this is the easiest way of going about it i think but some shop keepers can be a real pain to work with and i doubt AA will jump at the chance of making you a special S200 with a different power setting to the 1000 others they made that day

    You may be the person to ask, your air arms S410, if you'd swap it for anyother gun, within the same price range, what would it be, or maybe you wouldn't swap it, how does it compare to other guns you've used ?
    I just been looking at the Air Arms MPR and that looks appealling, drool, any comments?
