that being said,i hope others feel the same.nunga good nuff to keep up and running so we need support him by keeping it iteresting and active,or we lose the only airgun forum left in nz,and that be one hellva shame,coz face book not any where near as good as an active well informed forum on line,too much bs on face book to find anything of value ,so get behind nunga and keep our only truely airgun forum not only alive but triving,coz once gone due to lack of particifcation or interest we all lose something special

I agree Mike,especially with the current state of affairs.Interesting how forums wax and wane,I think they just have to keep their visual appeal in trend and whats new in the airgun world along with some historical content.Check out some of the latest airgun offerings at the 2019 shot show.Some pretty innovative rigs out there.

Im glad someone posted this. I had made my mind up that i would not renew the domain name or hosting due to lack of posts and interest. seems pointless to keep it going when no one posts anything. Having said that i was just about to post something in the hunting section of my latest outing Thumbs Up

cheers for the offer mate. Money is not the problem. just didnt feel like investing it into something that no one used. Hopefully things will get a little more active around here.

dont understand why airgun forums struggling to survive in nz coz they do everywhere else,overseas forums very active,but seem to have just died off here,and gone to social media and thats just not as good,mostly filled with junk posts

Hi guys. Yea social media isn't as good, but has sucked the forums dry.
Maybe it could be used to direct some people back?
Forums retain the info that's put into them, where social media dilutes it.

I believe the guy that  owns it isn't motivated to upkeep it anymore. Especially after Chch, as he is an importer of firearms, and his priorities changed. That's my guess, and I could be wrong.

Regarding the other forum, it went down a while ago and was resurrected. But went down a second time around the time of Christchurch events.. Coincidence perhaps.. 

The problem with forums in general i find is access..
Everyone has a smartphone attached to the end of their nose, and unfortunately social media is the first port of call.. Forums provide better information with better searchability, but usually only accessed when killing time at work.. 

Social media is getting more and more pedantic, so less and less 'allowable' content, and pages / groups getting shut down all the time. perhaps there will be a drive back to forums
