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 use Delkims, I got my current set of TXi’s for my fortieth birthday fourteen years ago and apart from problems with the first set of Nitelites I never had an issue.

    I’ve used Delkims since 1981, the year Mikey was born! I initially had the Heron conversions, then the Optonic conversions; I got the new versions with the vibration sensor when they came out in 1993, I caught my first thirty at 35:06 on them in 1994 (picture below). I then got the first TXi’s when they came out then what was the TXi 2000’s in 2004.

    I did have a set of R3’s, good alarms but I just didn’t like them as much as the Delkims. A friend of mine is the field tester for Delkims so I get to know the low down on what’s going on.

    Virtually everything else I use Nash, including rods, bivvy, bed chairs, in my view the best all round tackle designer and producer of all time. Maybe I’m a little bias as I’ve been a field tester and consultant with the company since 1997. Kevin lives a mile down the road from me and he went to the same school my lad has just left.

    As a kid tench fishing I use to watch Kevin and Del Romang (Delkim) catching what I considered to be massive carp at Star Lane and that’s what inspired me to carp fish.

    I’m now in the position where I need to find new carp fisheries in Norfolk as we’re moving as soon as we can sell the house. Luckily I’ve had a great deal of help from Andy @NIVEA who has many contacts through the BCSG all over the country. I must join again!

    All this chatting about carp fishing has got me itching to go, I must finish these airguns and get the tackle out! :)

    When I was into my fishing in a big way I tried all sorts, fox RX Digitals for me were brilliant alarms but expensive.
