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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    A strange choice for a first FAC Rifle.

    Still each to their own.

    why is it strange?
    you don't know what he'll be doing with it!
    personally,I don't like those, they're very plasticy.
    I have Kriss Defiance which is a lot better built and is therefore more sturdy with the only polymer part being the magazine.

    How is that Kriss running for you, Buffy? You've had it awhile now, IIRC. I seem to remember you looked at the Tippman as well?

    I'm still seriously considering a .22LR AR platform rifle just for the sheer fun of it.

    Why not get a proper AR lower with a .22 upper. That way it's cheaper to upgrade to centrefire in the future. I've got a lower & 3 uppers.

    Nice one Arek.
    How have you progressed from the pellets to the bullets mate?
    You managed to get some land and get your ticket?
    Well done if so and how did you find the whole process ad its something I'm looking at doing.

    He's probably just got the new modern warfare game and needs to know which gun to use on there :D

    We have 5 S&W at the club and they are real workhorses, however as said above the KRISS is a much nicer rifle to own personally though of course it's a step up in price.

    Next step up is a custom build using an AR upper & lower with a dedicated CMMG bolt and barrel, but it can work out 3-4 times the price of the S&W and double the price of the KRISS once you add all the goodies.

    The advantage is versatility and the the ability to add a centerfire upper at a later stage.

    Like anything in this game your budget will dictate where you end up but it doesn't need to dictate the amount of fun you can have.

    I'm really intrigued mate to know if hes being legit or not and has acquired an FAC. Reckon Monsta is probably correct though :D

    Perfect for club use or turning targets, even better if wanting to use a rail to add NV or Thermal for nightime field use.

    I am intrigued (completely genuinely) what would you think is a suitable first FAC rifle choice then?

    It's good Hiram,
    swapped the trigger unit out for a less,shall we say, agricultural one,removed the flash suppressor to fit a moderator and it groups really tightly with gecco semi auto and an 80 yard zero.
