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.'

  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.

    Yeh there ok Sean (ey up too :)), in .22. something near to upper limits on power either spring or co2, single or multi shot. one consideration would be the ability to add a moderator. no idea whats out there these days on the pistol side of things...

    cheers gents. so the tempest has a good reputation for the price? mod wise I was thinking if it was C02 Andy just to reduce the crack a bit. It would be nice to get him a HW45, hell I'd like one lol but it would have to be as close to 100 as possible which might be pushing it or just getting a rough example of one. Gasman have you had one your self mate or just got your eye on one too?

    What about an HW40? They are about £100 and will take a red dot etc.
    I bought one a couple of weeks ago as a bit of an impulse buy at my RFD but I'm very glad I did as its awesome.

    They look good, more my style of pistol tbh which I think the old man the go for ( I say old, 54 but 18 still in the mind). it would not bother me so much but I think having to buy the co2 bulbs would just annoy him so the Tempest or HW40 (don't think he would like the style of the SMK all that much) look like the way to go.

    in that case the hw40 is a cracker,no recoil and deadly accurate
    http://www.sportsmanguncentre.co.uk/product/654b59d68859877809588058/WEIHRAUCH+HW40+PCA+Pistol/
    or beeman do a copy of the 40 for a lot less moolah
    http://www.woodfield-gcp.co.uk/beemanpistols.htm
    a good tempest will do about 4 fpe but they kick like a mule
