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.

    Hello all
    Picked up this beaut at a local auction.... again auctions continue to invite me in, get me to part with my money and let me leave, but if it is anything like this I couldn't care less.
    So it is a Original Model 75 in .177
    The stock is a lovely oiled walnut, and altogether it weighs in at 11 lbs.
    But the weight isn't off putting AT ALL when you feel the crisp light trigger send the pellet flying down the barrel, but the fun doesnt stop there as the reloading process is sublime as well, with a silky smooth lever and well made feel.
    Especially amazing when she is 34 years old, and in MINT condition.
    Here she is :)

    Haha, If only, I might have to hire a buggy to take me between targets!
    I know why you would, they are ridiculously smooth.

    It was you was it :mad2: ... was after this myself at Gazes last Friday and also missed out on the HW80 in the same sale, though I must say I thought the prices were a bit on the high side (£190 and £200 if I remember rightly ?)

    Enjoy :salute:

    I'm very sorry but it had to be done :) , cant believe I have never seen you on the forum before, especially due to how close you are to where I hang my coat.
    I only bid once, were you the under bidder?
    Regards
    Bish

    Been hanging around on AGF for a few years, but am usually very busy ... unfortunately I couldn't make the sale, so I left bids with the auctioneer ! Have now learnt a lesson and will be 'in person' next time there's anything I fancy just in case you are lurking in the background with a fat wallet ! Enjoy the 75 ... ATB, Mark

    Have a look at this Friday's Household auction ... Lot 1281 : Diana Mod 52 and Lot 1282 : Weihrauch ... looks like a 35 ? Won't be bidding, bit thought you might like a heads up if you hadn't seen already !
