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.

    Dealt with them several times...never had a problem. Recommended...
    They sometimes take a little while to reply to e-mail, but only when they're particularly busy.

    Last time I checked they were one of the top three suppliers in the uk. mind you saying that, it does not necessarily mean that they are the best.
    I normally base my purchase decisions on price and availability. If Blackpool were £5 more than the next guy I wouldn't buy from them, I'd go to the next guy if it was in stock.
    It might be more pertinent to know just what it is you were thinking of purchasing rather than knowing whether we love them lots.

    I bought my pistol second hand from them. They wouldn't budge at all on price, probably because they knew that I'd travelled quite a distance and was going buy it anyway. They did throw in a free tin of pellets. When I got it home, I noticed that the front sight was loose, as was the rear sight. There were no breach seals fitted, so I used the spare pair in the box. It was also swimming in oil. It was leaking out for months afterwards. Obviously, they hadn't checked it out. Perhaps this was a one off. I'm not sure if I'd use them again, or not.

    Like any of today's RFD's they have good Day's and Bad

    But in General they offer a Good Service to Most Shooters

    Not aware of any Dealer that opens and checks guns working before putting it into Stock

    Something Manufactures Should do before putting it into it Box

    Not to be forgotten is that Air Gun Sales are not large Mark Up's and there is a limit to what any Dealer is able to offer their Customers

    Yes I have personally used them and received Good Service -

    Deal with them regularly very friendly and helpful no pressure selling so you can browse as long as you like, only down side part exchange values for your kit are extremely low and second hand gun prices are very high. If buying new they are great to deal with.:)

    Bought my 12 Litre bottle and all the trimmings from them, first class service and they never took the money out of my account until the goods were despatched, would certainly deal with them again.

    Tried to get a trade in price off them for a Daystate Huntsman as they had one in that was left handed and the wife shoots left eyed. Even speaking to the top man, offering to take digital photos and email them to get a price he would not even give us an idea of what his offer for the gun was. Seeing as Blackpool is a hell of a long way from Norfolk we declined his kind invitation to pay him a visit when we were passing! If his offer price would have been reasonable we would have taken the gun up traded it in and bought the left handed one. As it was we went elsewhere (Newmarket) and sold and bought there. Saved a fortune in diesel too so I suppose he did us a favour!
