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.

    well just heard thst some drug adicts and chavs have been taking pot shots at a jewson's van.

    the house opposite the builders merchant is where they shot from because the angle is like that and it has a load of chavs that go there too so its a bit obvious it was them.

    dont know if the police has arested them yet but i hope they do.:mad:

    this is why the law is so strict because of these stupid individuls!!!:mad:

    unfortunatley they used .22 so the damage looks really bad so now they will think that even 12ftlbs is too high!!!!

    they were shooting over a road as well, how stupid can you get?
    well they were drunk and high so what do you expect:mad:

    Don't forget-we who owned pistols also had FACs and the firearms were taken away.:mad: I let my FAC go at that point,:doh:then changed my mind a few years later and had to jump through a load of hoops to get one back-not really recommended!

    Wont be banned just harder to get

    Air rifles wont get banned but in a couple of years i wont be suprised if you need a licence to own one. the goverment will make a big mistake if they do this because then most people will also get a full bore rifle , if they bothered to go and get a licence for an air rifle.

    I doubt that very much Hughie, if licencing does come in and I'm almost sure it will at some point, it certainly won't be one where sub 12ft/lb air rifles and full bore are covered on the same ticket. It's more likely to be a shotgun ticket style licence and I'm guessing that anyone with a shotgun ticket already could probably get an air rifle added just by sending in details as already required for adding a new shotgun.

    I don't think it'll be that easy.--The restrictions that go with the 'ticket' are the problem.

    A lad I play cricket with was talking last night, that his girlfriend had been walking home from town at night, & some idiots shot her from a window, with an airgun. They hit her in the leg, & when the police entered the hotel the shootists were, they made no attempt to escape. That's just plain stupid, all it will probably take is someone to get blinded or something, then something very harsh will happen.

    I don't currently have any FAC guns, but I'm considering a gunsafe, just to look after my guns. In the near future, I will end up getting a Shotgun or Full-Bore though.
