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.

    Has anybody seen, in the Yorkshire or the surrounding area, a new Air Arms FTP900 for sale? I was hoping to try and pick one up this weekend.
    I know its a long shot someone having one in stock may end up having to order one from my local RFD
    Cheers

    I was about to post on the, "Get it off your chest" I ordered mine at the start of December we are now approching 3 months and still no sign, I just feel it will be such an anti climx when it arrives at some point this year or next....

    AA really need to look at how they market things in the future, a bit of a joke in my honest opinion.

    Good luck in your search and to be honest I would only buy these new (like Gasman stated above) at least you will be 2able to get any issues resolved without issue.

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    talked to anth (owner) at redbeck a couple of weeks ago, and he told me that air arms dont expect to have the ftp ready for general release this year ! they admit its besieged by reliability problems, but stopped short of admitting that they rushed it and brought it out too early. i love the look of them, but wouldnt entertain one till its been out at least a year, and trouble free - so that makes it 2016 at the earliest ! i know of 3 that have gone back for the same problem - dumping and not holding air. its a pity, as one of these were chronoed at the club, and a full string of shots had a maximum variance of less than 4 fps from the highest to the lowest shot - now thats good

    Good point Gasman, I should imagine a lot to be honest. I feel happier now knowing that I will have a new gun to try out FT and HFT and may in the future when the issues are resolved buy a FTP900.

    At a recent Welsh shoot, a John Ostler Ev2 wiped the floor with all comers!!
    Beat the isp by miles, penman ev was 3 targets behind, 2014 steyr and at least four ftp including one being used by the European champion by 5 targets!

    Ostler ev2 at £750 have a superb reputation

    Who was steering the ISP ;) Any gun can wipe the floor in the right hands (before you say an SMK 19 or something) I mean a decent one. The argument im putting over is the standard evs FTP900 as its now called leak like sieves hence tuners like ostler to put right. :rolleyes: A gun costing 1500 quid should not need regs rebuilt to perform as they should out of the box the EVS reputation for bad regs is well proven. :eek::D
