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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    When filling in the FAC application form how do you specify a FAC air rifle please? Do you need to be calibre specific or will "FAC Air Rifle" be enough.
    I fancy a Daystate Wolverine .303 but may change my mind (and get a .25 as more choice) and the .303 slot would be a bit restrictive. Any advice on applying for FAC Air please?

    and on a separate line ".22/.25/.30 calibre moderator"
    you will not be able to change your mind after the interview unless you pay for a variation

    If you want .303 you've got to have a valid reason for having it, also if the land is suitable, the only thing I'd worry about is if daystate stop making it & the ammo becomes less common.

    You must put .303 fac air rifle as I put it down on my application but it confused the police as they did know what it was so I just changed it to .22 rimfire also with the cost it the day state wolverine and the waiting time not worth it as you can get a good .22 rimfire for less than half the money and right off the shelf. Also with the .303 the next thing I asked my self and the police asked me also if I don't like like how much of a chance will I have to sell it and who will have a slot

    Most Air Gun Clubs do Not allow FAC Rated Air rifles on their Ranges - As FAC rounds can Destroy Metal Targets
    A Lot Depends on Your Local fire Arms Teams
    More are concerned over FAC Rated Large Calibers that Powder Rounds

    Speak to your Fire Arms Team and See what their concerns are

    I have a .25 FAC FX Wildcat and I rate it highly. There are those that don"t see the point in FAC air but I think it fulfills a useful performance role between sub 12 and cartridge rifles. I have all three platforns and my go to rifle is the Wildcat. I had no trouble getting the slot and I am waiting on a .30 cal variation for an FX Impact which you may want to consider over the Wolverine. The justification for big bore is accuracy over increased range and greater lethality for the humane dispatch of vermin. FAC air is also flexible and safer than rimfires. For instance I have used my Wildcat for ratting.
