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.

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.

    Christmas is coming up and I'm thinking about MAYBE getting a PCP rifle, this may or may not happen depending on what I feel like and if I can sell some of my current stuff.

    Anyway, just the usual questions, what would you (as PCP shooters) recommend? I'd want it for plinking, targets, and the occasional rat if I see one.

    Would be a .177, probably with a pump so no buddy bottles :down:

    I'm open to anything, forefit goes to the first one who recommends me an S400 :rolleyes: I would like something different please.

    Happy shooting.

    If pumping forget anything that fills above 200 bar as it gets hard up above that. This rules out the Hornet or Ultra. Also given your use I'd get a single shot rather than a multi. The Scorpion would fit the bill though and the S200 would too. Given the recent price hike on the S200 for it's new 1 piece stock I'd be swayed to the BSA. After the horrendous problems at it's launch I'd not touch a Solo purely because of Logun's use of paying punters as beta testers and the crappy Korean barrels they tried to fob us off with.
    I also agree on the MPR. The differences to a std S400 simply aren't worth a fraction of the price difference and the stock is designed to fit a 12 year old - it's ridiculously short.

    Should be able to get a solo with a walther barrel?!
    They sold the typhoon with the "Crappy korean barrels". they stopped as there were rust problems.
    As far as us being lab rats, the solo is made in Sweden,By FX.
    Ive heard there were problems with the early models with serie number 6000 and under. as far as i know they are sorted now.

    Finally, why does every one say pumping is so hard?.
    I'm pumping up to 220bar with no problems!
    (Only people with a divers bottle say it's difficult!!!;))

    I like that idea a lot, but they're kind of expensive, may be able to save up though :D

    A few months back just before the ban I thought about getting a Light Hunter, I looked into the FN8W and FN12W models, love the looks but no so keen on the price giving that I don't get that much time to shoot anymore.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions, they've definately been helpful. I'm getting a bit of money for Christmas so who knows what could happen.

    If anything I'm more keen to get a Falcon now, I've been off guns for a bit but this has made me start thinking about them again :)


    Happy shooting :D

    Used both 177 & 22 for rats & I now only use my Web Raider 10 .22. Rats r tough little critters & .22 gets me the highest score. If you can afford it get NV it really is worth it.

    Well I have about £400 atm, by Christmas I'll probably have about £600, will that cover it? (Rifle and NV) just out of interest.

    P.S. Would get the FN12 with walnut skeleton stock.

    if your after rats you would want the hard hitting .22 but if its only the odd one from time to time a heavy holowpind should do the trick.

    anyway.
    BSA. Air Arms and Logun make excelent PCP's without having to rob a bank:)
