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.

    did you hear on the radio today that there is this old lady that caries t knives in her hand bag and keeps an airgun around the house.

    i only just caught a bit of it but i think she was burgles so she chased the guy out of her house with the airgun and took it out into the street to make sure he went and stayed away.

    anyway when the police came they treated her as a criminal and said that if the guy had been shot they would come and arrest her and told her that waht she did was an offence because she took it onto the street uncovered without a sensible reason (what that meant is you can only cary it to take it to a shoot or shop not chase off a criminal):rolleyes:

    she is also in trouble for carying a knife everywhere.

    so one tough granny.

    what do you think?
    would you break the law and threaten a burgler with your gun to chase him off or just hide under the bed?

    I would never use my guns or knives against another person the best weapon for defending your home is one of the large d cell maglites as they are designed to be used as self defence weapons and keeping one by your bed in case of a power cut is quite normal so there is no way you can be charged with any criminal intent by keeping it to hand

    Any burglar ever comes in my house, they won't be in a rush to try it again.
    I would do what ever i wanted to them if they were in my house, i don't give a f&%k what the government says you cannot do to them.
    In my house it's my laws. :mad:

    I've got a cricket bat in my room (signed by the Essex team of 1983). I don't know if i'd be too scared to whack a burglar, but it's nice to know it's there

    Thing is TC they would have to prove you did whatever to them, :D
    just make sure they is no evidence and the case would be dropped.

    I agree with Andy...burglars will be shot...survivors will be shot again. If you want to keep a baseball bat next to your bed, it's NOT against the law as long as you have a baseball there too. The fact that it was "to hand" when the burglars came in is totally irrelevant.

    Even if there is no evidence against you and you get away with it you can kiss goodbye to your guns a compliant against you for being violent is all the police need to take them away and to revoke firearms and shotgun certificates you may win over the thieves but you will lose in the long run it's just not worth the risk
