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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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'm looking for a secure way to carry my air rifle on my motorcycles. Has anyone done this themselves? I've seen a couple of handlebar mounting systems on the internet but all have the rifle without padded bag. I'm thinking that handelbar mouting on a quad might be fine but not so good on a 2 wheeler. I'm thinking that moutning it either at the back or on the side in amore verrtical position might be better. Has anyone attemted this or have nay ideas how it might be done securely?

    It all depends on the type of riding you intend doing and the weight of the gun. A decent gun slip with sewn in shoulder strap works for me. I have often carried guns on a bike just keep the speed down to about 70 to 80mph otherwise it starts to flap about like a flag.:D

    I aint passed my driving test so have no choice but to take my rifles in the gun bags on my back when riding the ped. I'm lucky i have a permission i can walk to but it is another reason i like lightweight, carbine length rifles. When i do have rifles in the gunbags on my back i have the strap done up super tight & go on steady! I would be intersted if sumone has created a better way to transport rifles on a bike... maybe the ruck-sack type gun bags would be better.

    On my GS I just bungy it across the back of the seat - in a padded gun bag. It works fine....you don't want it too rigid in case you fall off. I think a bag that can move a bit will save a good deal of damage to the rifle.

    What sort of bike do you have if it's an old school type a with an open frame not coverd in plastic like a scooter or a race rep. It wouldent be to hard to make up a sub frame alowing the gun in a bag or case to be atached to the side of the bike behinde the rider. I have seen a rig like this but i cant remember where. Try and get a look at the army 350 Harley davidson to see how the gunbox is fitted to them. Please remember not to fix the gun near the engine as they get verry hot and could melt plastic cases or fitings and dont drill holes anywhere without checking it is safe to do so. If you get the job done please post a picture so others can see the finished job someone is allwase looking for ideas cheers.

    Buy an Armstrong, some of them have rifle cases on the side, damned useful for transporting baguettes home when you are not shooting too!

    I loved the Armstrong I rode a few years back, mind you it was a ******* to start when I stalled it. It almost threw me over the front, and at 120ish Kg that is some feat! :)

    Rascaltroos- have you thought about getting one of those Flambeau hard rifle cases with foam inside?You could bolt one of those to the frame and the foam would protect the zero from vibration.

    Take the foam out. Get some pipe clips and bolt them to the case one side, round the frame tube. Then put the foam back in. You would want a small padlock or something to make sure the case didn't come open on the road!

    I'm currently riding a Kawasaki KLV1000 a Yamaha MT03 and a Haotian vixen 125 (nasty chinese coimmuter but 100mpg) so I want to come up with something that will be quickly detachable and fit to all three bikes.
