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.

    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.'

  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 guessing both are insurance companies plus a few added extras. So, BASC or BASA?:confused:

    I used basa when I started as it was cheap, when it ran out I decided to go with basc, they are dearer but do alot for all shooting, you get a couple of magazines each year and you get a few goodies with your welcome pack.

    Cheers, billy

    I would go for BASC to be honest. At the moment i have BASA just because i have no permissions since moving house and i only do a bit of range work. I will go for BASC again once im settled and start looking for somewhere to shoot. As said above, i believe BASC is more known by land owners.

    Lots of threads on this.....my order of preference SACS, BASC, CCC, BASA. BASC is probaby the most recognisable.

    I am with SACS as family cover is a good deal and it also covers me to be out on the boat - I heard the lawyers are better to but can't verify that.

    Cheers

    SACS is £36 for a year, coverage for anything from tiddler bashing in the local pond to deer stalking in the Highlands of Scotland! If you have children that need cover the cost for them is, wait for it, £0, that is right, £0, nothing, nada, zilch!

    Not that I am saying don't have insurance everyone should have it.

    But bear in mind when talking to farmers, as airgunners we will normally be shooting vermin, and so if you are out pigeon shooting and you accidentally shoot the farmers son and tractor driver. It's the farmers insurance that pays out not your shooting insurance.


    The same with most accidents you could have, as you will be considered to be working for the farmer. ( employee or work partner) you don't need to be paid just be providing a service to the business.

    Some farmers will be aware of this and some not. It might change what you say when asking for permission.
    Don't make to big a deal of the insurance thing as many farmers will know it will probably be them that foots the bill if you have an accident.
    Cheers Andy

    As Stated Countless Times - BASC is more than insurance Cover - It's a Shooting Service with live Staff at the end of a phone or email Line

    And the one that the Majority of Landowner / Farmers use

    Been a Trade Member for over 20 years - and Talk to BASC staff about Shooting issues -

    Like any Association / Group their Activities are Only as good as those that get involved

    BASC now do spread payments - to stop issues of costs - Staff cost money and someone has to pay them -
