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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Me it was a HW98 in.177

    I'd always wanted it one, fell in love with the ugly duckling looks of it, and the promise of its performance.

    Just couldn't gell with it. It had a terrible twang so much so it gave me a head ache and it was shotting very hot! Too close for comfort. It was still accurate, stupidly so.

    I was too scared to strip it to fetle with it incase I messed it up. So it sat in my (locked) wardrobe doing nothing so I moved it on.

    Roll on 12 months and I've stripped and fetled 3 different rifles 2 HWs and their triggers and I wish I'd kept it now. :facepalm:

    I tried filling the void with a HW95 .22 but I always found myself returning my 99 as shot so much better. So that went too.

    Yeah I probably will get another 98 but I've got more important things on the go at the moment.

    That itch will have to wait.

    Oh yeah, a HW95 lazerguide internals, .22, professionaly shortened barrel, polished trigger, CS500 stock...virtually no recoil, super smooth to cock. It was wonderful. Had an Airwolf at the same time and the HW could easily hold it's own on the range.

    So I sold it, erm ??????

    M1 Garand. Beautiful walnut stock and more accurate than I am by a long chalk. The last of the milsurp 30-06 dried up (it was Greek) so I moved it on. The rifle I regret not buying, which is almost the same thing as selling, was an Enfield No4 Mk1 that was so factory fresh it was still wrapped in the original paper. By the time I made my mind up to buy it, it was gone. I am so often an idiot.

    image.jpeg This older .22 MKIII TX200 HC. It not only looked nice but shot really well. I find the older stocks a lot better than the newer ones to be honest.

    2 really.
    A Sharp Victory in about 1993 and the FWB300s I rebuilt.

    The 300 was away from me for a whole year and the minute it went, I regretted it. Luckily I bought it back.

    Tx mkiii. I needed the cash and it paid for an amazing weekend away. I later replaced it with a 98 which is superb.

    Ive no regrets on the outcome but i would still love to have it back in my cabinet. One day i will get another but theres no rush at the moment.

    Theoben Fenman. Absolutely loved that gun. I saved up for it for a year (I could not work due to a motorbike accident & had 2 small kids).
    Eventually got back to work but the place I worked made me redundant November, didn't get Xmas bonus & I had two kids presents to buy. No choice but to sell :(
    Worse part is I got another job the week after but the gun had been sold. Absolutely gutted & still regret selling the best most accurate gun I've used (& I've used a lot).
