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.

    Evening chaps,
    I wondered what the consensus would be, on whether I should never use my brand new in the box .22 Longbow, or should I get it out and use it for what it was intended for?
    I never really intended to leave it boxed, but ended up never actually ever using it, and the years have now passed by. :eek:

    Guessing I'd then need to sell my mint one to then fund that purchase, having been nicely tuned!

    I've had a habit in the past of buying things in pairs, to use one and keep one mint. It's a very slippery slope I've found though ;-)

    Keep it in the box then, I would never have been able to keep a gun that long without shooting it.
    Some kids could keep dinky toys in there boxes but I had to play with mine. :D

    I'm really not sure how I didn't manage to ever do so. I guess at the time I had a nice Dave Hall tuned HW80K and an FWB Sport 124 as my fun accurate springers.

    Yes, if only I'd been able to keep the original Star Wars toys boxed and not played with and probably chewed too!! ;-)

    Just been thinking about opening it up and having it tuned to perfection, so not going to be done by myself then haha. Any thoughts on who would be good to maybe take on a task such as this please?
    If only it could be a Venom Longbow (sigh)!!

    shot it, I have a Tomahawk in .22 and I couldnt wait to shot it. It came 2nd hand of the other side and was amazingly accurate but was way over powerd! 14 foot lbs with air arms domes. So quick visit to Welsh -Willi in Swansea and a more safer 11.5. Shot the gun and enjoy.

    I've still resisted opening it currently. I might think to open it and have a few shots this week maybe. I am thinking what I might need to do before shooting in it case oil and grease have dried up with it having sat for so long
