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.

  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.

    Thought there may have been some early reports from the show by now. Packed out or not, how many spotted walking around wearing full camo and boots :handjob:, just in case they need to hide to shoot that elusive Squizzer :laff:

    Anything new and not seen. I think most makers are waiting till IWA.

    Some people live in camo or green clothing. Nothing wrong with that, though not necessary at the NEC.
    You're giving me a complex now, i'll have to ensure i wear my 70's shell suit instead :p

    Isn't full camo old hat? I thought it would be the "tacticool" look that people would be going for. Roly polying from one stand to the next :D

    I enjoy swimming but don't go out in my trunks :p just as well too.

    I wear tweeds for game shooting, full waders and foul weather gear in green or marsh camo for Wildfowling and camo or olive drab for airgun hunting.
    I wear full on clay shooting kit when busting little discs.
    I don't wear them for days out, I wear casual attire :nana:
    Most other members of the public wear the same casual clothing for days out.

    Biker friends of mine take the pee out of bikers who turn up to bike shows in a car, in full leathers and boots then get their helmet out of the boot :facepalm: oh dear :laff:

    Going tomorrow. Be interested in anyone who’s been today’s thoughts. Not looking for non existent bargains but hope to buy a new scope.

    Get them at the range as well. Full camo, usually spotlessly clean, we even had one chap last year who had a commando knife strapped to his thigh and camo.
    Fair enough when hunting but very silly at the range, or the shooting show...

    committing an offence possibly, unless stabbing the targets is a “need for carrying “

    Who’d want to be a member of a range that allows that sort of nonsense. Great for shootings image. I’d hope they were asked to leave. What possible reason could you want a knife strapped to your thigh.

    One good thing about clay shooting rules, no camo allowed clothing or gun.

    Walts mate. I have to say it’s the rimfire blokes who are most guilty. They also tend to have wonky scopes and aren’t terribly accurate, as long as it’s loud and fast they’re happy.
    Commonly known at the club as the S.W.B. or Small Willy Brigade.

    Well I went today (not in Camo by the way) and really enjoyed myself. Loads of bargains to be had. I managed to get a pistol I was after for a great price and some freebies thrown in. Loads of ranges to have a go. Some great food stalls selling fresh made pies, pasties etc.
    And it wasn't too packed that you couldn't move either. Loved it. Great day out.
