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, im in the beginning with PCP air rifles .I've shoot rabbits with my friend`s FX and I liked this type of air rifles .My question is: What PCP rifle to choose for 800-900$ budget.
    My requirements are:
    1-To be accurate
    2-To be enough powerful to kill rabbits , pigeons , crows ,magpies and pheasants on 160-190 yards.
    3-My favorite calibers are: .22 and .25

    I saw the Walther Maximathor .22 and I don`t know is this rifle meets my requirements.

    Thanks in advance for the tips !!!

    Where are you based are you here in Britain or elsewhere ? At 200 yards you need full on centre fire rifle not an air rifle not even an FAC airgun, taking crows out at those distances needs something more like a 223 I would of thought, as for Pheasants unless the land owner has given you permission
    I think those videos might be in South Africa or other countries with no power restrictions on the airgun are you in Britain or elsewhere ?

    Chiv, the ranges you are wanting to shoot out to are way out of most people’s experience on this forum.

    There may be a more appropriate forum for high power air guns.... most on here shoot out to 50yds max....

    Good luck with your quest.

    Ah ha ok well I don’t know the laws there regarding power for airguns here even with an FAC airgun most people are shooting out to maybe 80 yd’s at most I may be wrong and on this forum the majority threads and topics are about UK 12ft/lb non license airguns so shooting quarry out to 50 yd’s max, hope this maybe helps a bit .

    You'll probably get better (and more serious) responses from somewhere like www.airgunnation.com
