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've just about always used a stirrup pump for charging my pcp's mainly because it's easier for me rather running to the dive shop every time i need a re-fill and no test's to be done on them and never had a problem with moisture in the rifles , however i'm always on the look out for a bit of a bargain/good deal and in go dive in derby which is about 30minutes from my front door they'r selling brand new 12ltr 300 bar cylinders with charging kit/gauge etc for which i think is a very attractive price of £195 , now i'm trying to find a good reason why i shouldn't get one but to be honest i'm struggling to come up with a very good reason why i shouldn't.....anyone want to buy an fx stage4 pump :D

    I assume they are dive cylinders & need a first test at 2.5 years, so check the actual date of manufacturing stamped on the cylinder. I've heard 35 - 45 quoted for this so it may not be quite the bargain it looks if there isn't much time left.

    Maybe they'll do you a deal - convert the valve to surface use & throw in the test for not a lot more money, maybe not the bargain of the year but certainly good value & you will have a full 5 years before the next test?

    Not if they are dive cylinders, that's the point I'm making, it's a Dive center so check they are actually configured for surface use - a gauge as part of the cylinder valve, otherwise first test is at 2.5 years, a thorough internal examination - for 30 - 40 quid probably...

    Not that it matters too much as long as you know what's what, I'd be interested if it was near me at that price even if it was a diving spec. cylinder - but I would be changing the cylinder valve for a surface one.
