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 all

    well which one ???

    but hold there like all things in life a catch... the bsa is brand new with a scope included the falcon is 8 years old with a scope as well both are 22.

    The reason behind this i am a lefty, but only in shooting, yes i know about eye patches and all that. but in my youth won many a competition being a lefty, the falcon is a left hand stock (skeleton with thumb hole) i fell in love, price was the same the BSA (BSA is ambie boring normal stock) the downside is the falcon although left handed very light, well balanced is the pump to pump it up is £150 smackers!!!! on top of the gun price. so i have bought the BSA but even now as i look at it on the other side of the room the voice inside says "should of got the falcon" what do i do. Do i keep the BSA or go back, swap for the falcon and pay the "Dollars" for a new pump...

    opinions please

    The BSA will shake itself to bits, snap the stock bolts, be badly made and not worth the money.

    The Lightning is the worst BSA springer ever made.

    Go for the Falcon! Good guns!

    Anything except the BSA

    Dosen't matter how many shots the gun has fired,if it shoots straight and holds air,buy it.

    I've had a Lightning, albeit a few years ago now. It was... okay. Bit unpolished and not extremely accurate. Heck of a thump off it too. There's plenty more springers out there for the same kind of money.

    I now own a Falcon, and love it. Pellet on pellet, and the multishot is a great thing. I bought a pump, but I'm thinking about buying a tank as it gets a fair bit of use. Well worth it, I'd say.

    I would rather a Falcon I'd found in a tramps pants than a GRT Lightening!

    Lightning = Rubbish.
    Read all the reviews on lightnings, GRT and otherwise. Totally overpriced rubbish.
    I would buy Hatsan before BSA.
    Go for the Falcon and search for pump bargains on the internet, at the very worst it will need £20 spent on seals.
