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.

  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.

    Simple question really only one choice aloud (or one pistol and one rifle ) :) keep this clean aswell, we don't want arguments :)

    I'll start, probably the worst ive used is a bsa scorpion t-10.

    For me the stock was absolutely not to my flavour and the noise the action made was literally a fart.

    Didn't even zero it before I sold it

    Probably s410k, it was very 'average' for the money and that was being nice.

    I think it was the expectation of it being a really good gun. It was worse than average so a big disappointment.
    If they could make one that shot as good as it looks it would be a world beater.

    Gamo Hunter IGT - worst recoil of any air rifle I've ever shot. I looked at it for someone who couldn't zero the scope - not surprised -thanks to the chronic barrel droop it was shooting 8 inches low at 25 yards (with the scope elevation maxed out).

    Umarex 850 Air Magnum - badly designed and made out of pot metal - marketed as "quality German engineering". When I mentioned it on here in another thread I was told that all you need to do is convert it to HPA and add a barrow load of after-market replacement parts - so why not save your money and buy an S200 in the first place?

    In between these two I put a new spring into a late 70s Meteor for a mate - it might have been a rusty old crate but it was a pleasure to work on and shoot compared with those two over-priced piles of crap.

    I was given an old Scorpion a while ago - I'm not sure whether to bother restoring it now, but at least I didn't have to pay anything for it.

    I had a three-shot semi-automatic shotgun that would, on the first trigger pull, go fully auto and dump all three shots, one after the other. That didn't last long.

    I only let it do it twice before it went back - and when the new one arrived I traded it for a powder-burning rifle.

    Mileks HW100 with that custom stock was the worst gun I've held - as it's going to cost me £900 now to buy one! :mad:
