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.

    Welcome

    Yes whatever land you shoot on you must have permission from the owner, you could also find a local airgun club and shoot there.

    Ian..if you need to know something, then there is no such thing as a silly question....only silly answers.

    If you don't know the laws regarding the use of air weapons, I think it would be a real good idea to read up on them, not knowing the law is no excuse, the "sorry Officer, I didn't realise that" won't get you off and many of the points of Law carry BIG penalties.

    I'm still pretty new here myself, so I don't know whether the info is available here, but it certainly is available HERE.. http://www.basc.org.uk/content/airriflepractice

    although even these may not be the definitive list.

    Be safe...have fun.

    Brian

    to be honest ian your far better putting a bit more cash together
    and getting a lightening xl (bsa) or hw 95
    both are break barrel springers with the 95 havining the edge
    over the bsa

    THERE BOTH AROUND THE £200 MARK, as for the 300 not much i can say about them, as i have never used one, but i recommend that your far better off in the long run buying one of the rifles i mentioned
    as they are both well respected guns.

    For £50 you'll get a sound but basic gun that can be taken hunting so long as you stick to reasonable limits. The Cometa wouldn't be my 1st choice but at £50 it's far cheaper than you'll get anything-else for. Just be aware that other guns are going to give a more refined shooting experience so don't judge all air rifles by the Cometa's stds. It's a sound buy at £50 if it's in good nick and you should be able to sell it on for that at a later date.
