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.

    My wife came to the club with me today. She hasn't shot since she sold her Mossberg 20g three years ago, but decided she wanted to see if she could get her eye back in. We took my Fenman profile and my newly fettled and oh so beautiful walnut prosport.
    First off, I would like to say that I've run a few hundred pellets through my new short stroke conversion today, with no visible sign of wear or use on strip down. Its supremely accurate with little recoil and its a joy to shoot. After zeroing it my wife was hitting 14mm spinners at 55 yards with ease.

    I wasn't!:mad:

    I've gone right off that gun. Its a pain to cock, a pain to load and I wish I'd kept hold of my TX mk3!!:mad:

    I left her to it with the prosport and went for my Fenman Profile. Its in .22 which is the perfect calibre for this rifle. I've fitted it with a 1-4x24 Bushnell AR BDC scope which just adds to the looks, and as a short range hunter its spot on! I wanted to zero for 25 yards. Could I see the targets? Could I buggery!:mad: My eyes are too decrepit for such a small scope. I managed somehow, and could hit spinners ok, but what a let down!:mad:

    I left in a marked manner and had a sneaky fag and a coffee. After a while I went back to the range only to find Alan had let her loose with his HW100k, the butt-ugly swamp-donkey that even its own mother couldn't love! She was printing 1/2-3/4" groups at 45 yards and happily declared she wants one.
    Now!:mad:

    This has been a very disappointing and expensive day, and I wish I'd stayed in bed!:mad:

    Vulture that I am, I'll take the Bushnell scope off you...

    :)

    Chin up - it could have been worse.

    At least your other half is sober enough to take out and shares your interests :rolleyes:

    Look on the bright side, when you're too old and decrepit to shoot, at least your guns won't be wasted.

    My other half hadn't even held a firearm before she got her mitts on mine.

    Admittedly she was crap and got fed up after half an hour. :D

    My little sister on the other hand has been able to out-shoot me since she was 8. Kid you not, she was pegging pennies and clothes pegs at 30+ yds standing unsupported with my old lightning! Might just have been luck, what with Lightnings being what they are and all... She's the same with pistols too though, bloody infuriating at times.

    Sometimes you've just got to swallow your pride and congratulate them though. That's the bit that gets me.
