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.

    Just wanting to know which one you would rather have? I currently own a air ranger in .22 and find it a bit on the heavy side for hunting ie taking standing shots. So was looking at either a regal or a r10 mk2 in .177 which one would use guys recommend or would you stick with the air ranger and get bigger muscles? Haha cheers.

    Make yourself a pair of DIY shooting sticks to a length that suit you (standing or kneeling). Do a search on youtube and you'll find some good ideas although I think the one below is the best.

    If you can afford to have another gun then a Regal can be an awesome gun to own, accurate, light, good looking, good shot count............. There have been a few teething problems with some guns, and I know it's a pain having to have got them sorted via Daystate, but it is guaranteed, and if you get a second hand one just spend 20 minuets with it and make sure it's right, the problems have been well documented, but all easily fixed.

    I had this problem with my wife and son, they were all over the place with my Wolf, but right at home with a Regal. I understand you are slightly different in that your carrying it about for a long time, but the effect is the same - better shooting.

    hello, yes i understand having had a R10 although not to heavy but when i realised i was never having more than 50 shots out shooting rabbits i decided to look at a lighter .177 and got a brocock 6, scoped about 3 kg it is never easy finding the right rifle to suite your needs but the ranger is rather heavy even more with scope. still if you only have 1 rifle and use a fair few shots keep it and try what others say or get something lighter and more suitable.
