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.

    Hi all,
    I went to kibworth for first real time today and it looks superb. Talked to the guys in the gunshop for 30mins about how every gun I own is nothing good apparently :O and handled about every gun in there :) payday tomorrow and an airwolf has my lip trembling, couldn't believe how balanced they are!

    Well anyway I'm hopefully going to start going with a mate and probably start doing hft in. 22! As I miss my competitive sports life of a few years back.

    So any go regularly to there?

    I know daystate are releasing there air cylinder conversion for the wolverine there soon.

    I am a member up there, but have only been a few times recently. I used to shoot there when I was a kid, but the place has changed quite drastically since then!

    It has plenty going on up there, pretty lucky to have it within a 25 minute drive really! The shop is pretty good, they seem to stock a wide variety of rifles and pistols, along with the 'try before you buy' stock which is handy. The guys in the shop seems friendly enough too and make you feel welcome.

    I seem to remember watching a video for the Daystate Regal Huntsman which was launched and first sold at Kibworth too.. Says a fair bit for Daystate to chose Kibworth for the launch location on numerous occasions I suppose!

    Hi Tom
    I have shot HFT at Kibby many times. It is a great place. And the HFT days are well run with brilliant courses. The cafe is good too.

    Now I have to ask why you would choose a .22 rifle for HFT? .177 is far better as is a single shot version for HFT. But if you are set on one of the ugly Daystate rifles, so be it and .22 will give you a challenge. ;)

    Haha, not set on a daystate really. Just was nicer than I thought, I won't buy one :sly:

    I only have .22 multi and a single shot .20.
    Not sure .20 would put me against anyone else though as it's done in categories of calibre isn't it?

    Nothing, didn't say there was.... I'd proberly use my Fx as I simple love using it. :D well my .20 is for sale so may buy a rubbishy .177 if I have to. Probs a flipping s200 or 400 if I really have, or actually thinking about it maybe an elite. Who knows, might supprise people with my .22 hunting rifles :) main issue will be trigger weight....

    Haven't seen many people shoot HFT in .22 because .177 is easier :D

    my MPR in .177 is the gun i use for FT and for HFT i use my regulated Ultra,both with very fine hair triggers.

    I will
    only every clay shoot there had bad experience with the air gun shop who Tryed to fix my rifle and ended up going back as it was replaced with the wrong part and still wasn't fixed, I've been in there 10-15 mins before even being noticed, I went in with an Njr custom with hawk side wonder and Deben bipod and got tails that the scope and bipod were rubbish and they didn't know an all full lot about the gun but in all fairness not many people did

    Lol, he didn't actually say rubbish, he asked what I had and shrugged them all off not saying anything about them, he said the Fx was alright (or something similar to that) he then asked what scopes I had and agreed the Simmons wtc was good but the Nikon was shrugged off. He had 60 air rifles in his collection. So he must have a rapid :)

    I asked them how well bsa's were selling, They said they were selling r10's well. Let's not go there lol
