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.

    '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.

    I shall soon be in the market for the following

    AA S400
    Scope and Mounts
    7L 300bar Tank
    Gunslip

    and possibly

    Silencer
    Strap and Swivels

    What's the best way to do this. Shop around and travel to the best store. Or go to the most local and try to do price matching?

    What are good stores to look at?

    I would also consider buying used but as a novice I'm a little reluctant because I lack the skills to judge the true condition of what I'm buying.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    What sort of package discount should I expect?

    Am in the same boat very soon, planning to get similar package but going for BSA Scorpion T10.

    Will be buying from Deepblueshooting in Whitley Bay - plan is this;

    walk in, tell the sales guy I'm about to spend a big wad of cash with him if he does me a good deal, if I can get anywhere between 10 and 20% off the list I'll be chuffed.

    Is this wishful thinking?

    yes as topcat says you can save a mint buying second hand and can get some top notch deals but you have to know what your looking at, if not take someone with you that does.;)

    AirGun Centre is best location for 'big name' store.

    They will deliver out to where I live but it's not so far to go and visit them personally.

    The website says they do Free Servicing and Free Repairs which sounds pretty good.

    It also says they tune and test the guns and provide a certificate.

    This all sounds pretty good to me.

    I do have a really local (less than 5 minutes) gun shop - probably more shotgun than air rifle. It would be handy to deal with them but I would be surprised if they could match the sort of deals that AirGun Centre do.

    As for second hand. It is attractive but I just couldn't judge what I was buying. I want something in vgc but when I see such a thing being sold I have a suspicious niggle "why are they selling". And finally, I do keep looking but I've hardly seen any AA400s, especially in 177 and when I do see them, the price isn't so far off new.

    Cheers,

    Nigel
