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.

Good news An Interesting Day, And Met 2 Great Members!

    Well, yesterday was a great day for me, as well as an interesting experience.

    First stop was a socially distancing meet up with Paul @billy.whizz to do our pre arranged swap of scopes and for me to take over laser like Kozak! (Enjoy the sidewinder and looking forward to hearing about you smashing the bench rest comps with the AA s510).
    What an absolute gentleman!

    We were less impressed when we were approached by a gentleman from the National Crime Agency (NCA)... as he'd "seen us with sights, but obviously we are all above board as we weren't hiding anything". Details swapped and wasn't a problem at all, but good to see that there are people who will question, but if we were up to no good, he could well have put himself in harm's way!

    Second stop then was to our very own @nath92 to drop him his BSA Super10. Again, an absolute gentleman and a pleasure to meet.

    All in all, a great day, and several hours out and about.

    Can't wait now to give the Kozak a whirl and see what she can do. Certainly fits me a lot better, and given my current health issues, it's easier to manage being lighter with a better weight distribution.

    So, here's to getting on with whatever our new normal will be!

    Why would the NCA be interested? I thought that was an intelligence gathering organisation and they passed policing jobs onto the police if investigation was needed. Did the person show correct ID?

    Yeah... I used to do a lot of work with NCA, so no problems.
    Tend to be focused on organised crime, so obviously ears pricked when he saw a weapon scope!

    Couldn't agree more my friend!

    As we discussed, there's a lot more genuine and honest people than those who aren't (and we've both been stung) but we won't let those get in the way of helping others out if we can!

    I have met a couple of great fellas from here myself. @Howlin Wolf was good enough to help me with my xs78 even if it was a little fiddly and done a cracking couple of deals with @Radlad and @gordy p. Its a pleasure to be part of such a friendly and helpful group.:thumb:

    Actually, he didn't have a scooby... but was amenable enough and we were polite and showed we had nothing to hide. Not sure he even new what a pellet was, he asked if it fired balls!
