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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Hello all you kindly shootist fellows :)
    I’m Steve from Cheshire East / High Peak and trying to get started with a local club on Sunday 30 August in a quarry.
    Last time I had a gun I was 10, with a Diana Model 2 pistol then a Diana break barrel 177, both stolen from me.
    I do have a heavy Webley pistol that my grandad passed to me 40+ years ago.

    Please be prepared for oh so many questions, sometimes daft cos I know nowt.
    However, i will be spending the kids inheritance before too long, cos I deserve it

    Hi Steve, I’m from your neck of the woods, and have been a few times to the quarry - Ian the lad that runs it is a nice guy and does it really well. I also chuck fluff ! :thumb:
    Welcome to the forum, it’s a great source of knowledge with some very helpful and generous members.

    Hello Steve,

    I bid you a very warm welcome to our great forum, enjoy mate.

    Spend it all on guns mate, PCP’s, Springers and All the gear that goes with it. Get yourself a HW100T, it will shoot the nuts of anything.

    You will get lots of help on this fine forum, however daft you think your questions are, just ask, we all had to start somewhere.

    Enjoy the forum Steve, join in and have a few laughs along the way, I know I do.

    All the best.
    Les.

    Yep. I used to chuck fluff for Trutta, then stepped up and got into it for Esox too.
    Mainly around Cheshire, but venturing over the Pennines to where they speak funny, tha knows

    Its very possibly me, as I was on a lot of fishing forums and for Pike with the PACGB.
    Carting all the gear, just too much now, so turning to Airguns now.
    NOT, shooting fish in a barrel though

    Funnily enough, without owning one before really, I’m looking at the HW100KT laminate.
    From what I’ve studied, the engineering looks so good and the finish is exceptional.
    I’ve been told to get a springer first, but at 69, I don’t want to waste time doing that.
    Im spending it cos I earned it and deserve it.

    I’ve been on many forums with this username. Didn’t think there’d be any controversy as it’s a general name for fly fishermen.
    I take it there was a problem with one such named angler
