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.

    I used to collect Commando knives, I enjoy hunting stuff down and had a fine collection. Some of the rarest knives were in these drawers and each was different to another in some minor way such as an inspectors mark etc.

    Anyone else collect stuff? Let's see it :)

    There's plenty of collectors on here, most of them don't realise and a lot of the others wouldn't actually admit it.

    That's a real nice collection of Fairburn Sykes .A great investment.
    I collect ww2 German military items-badges medals headgear binoculars ect ect. Its a hobby I have enjoyed since I was 12 years old. I always feel as though I have to inform folk that my hobby has no political interest....some people are quick to judge.

    That's a wonderful collection, it conjures up images in my minds eye of where these knives have been and what they have done.

    The history aspect of them of course not the violence!

    Hi, I used this stuff. It's brilliant and I now use it on the barrels of my guns because if you have bloodied hands the blood will soon destroy the bluing. This stuff protects the bluing. It was developed by a Curator from the British Museum to protect their collections without the side effects associated with usual waxes. It's really good stuff.

    Well here's a taster...:) I tracked down Sgt Martins nephew after having a clue where it came from by the dealer I bought it from who had thankfully took the name of the family would sold it to him. The nephew later posted this comment on the commando forum.

    [​IMG]Sgt Donald Hugh Martin of 1 Troop (and formerly C Troop) 4 Cdo. He was part of the first police intake into the Commandos in 1942. The photograph was taken by Lt Peter King MC outside a ruined church in Zoutelande, Holland on about 4th November 1944 following the successful assault on Flushing some days before. My uncle was later mentioned in despatches for his part in a small-scale raid on the island of Schouwen. For his role in leading the raid, Lt King was awarded the MC. During this time, 4 Cdo was under the command of Lt Col Robert Dawson DSO.

    What an excellent collection, I've never seen so many knives in one place.

    I don't collect anything, I've just never got the bug, I would like to have an interest like this, but I'm just too shallow to put the time in.

    To be clear I no longer have this collection, I sold it after feeling I wasn't enjoying it any longer. That's what I'm about, finding the stuff then finding another..

    So who else collects stuff any stuff??? Surely there are some amongst us :)

    Anyhow I forgot the Commemorative's :)
