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.

    I phoned Air DE fective regarding my new Artemis P15 and spoke at length with a Carl I think (hence the mess up) I decided to book a hotel down in MK (£80 for the night) dropped the gun off to numb nuts at 09:05 in the morning after a drive down from West Yorkshire. He assured me that the gun would be different. I done what tourists do down there and called him just about 4pm, he said it wasn't quite ready. I got there a little after 5pm, the gun was handed to me about 5:35pm, too late to try it on his adjacent land. The next morning I drove home where I tested it in the back garden. It couldn't hit a barn door at 15 yards. next day I phoned the moosh
    he agreed to accept it back via courier at his expense. Later he informed me that it was pushing out just short of 5fpe, he'd entrusted this work to one of his employees he claimed.Later a phone call he said it was very accurate and pushing 11.5 fpe and would mail it back to me.
    Three days later I got it back, fu??ing useless and I gave him a mouthful. I sold the gun and cut my losses. The company is a fu??ing joke, which I told him.
    Never again, if I read on AGF someone going Air(de)fective I'll warn them.

    Sounds bad and expensive.
    What was the gun doing when you received it back the 2nd time?

    Nothing at all, couldn't group, some use a 5p piece to gauge groups, I used a car tyre. Don't know about power output as I had no chronograph. I cannot remember how much now the so called tune up cost but with hotel and eating out, visiting Bletchley Park and other things add £200, I think the tune up (fu??ing laugh that) was about £150 plus the fuel down there and back we're looking at £400 +
    I'd have been better off standing outside my front door and throwing £400 down the drain.

    That's a crap experience! My experience however was very different with Air Fective. Currently there are two of them (Liam and Elliott, both brothers). I stayed and watched whilst they serviced and tuned my Wildcat and it was and still is spot on.

    Indeed it is but I would hazard a guess that the vast majority of companies have complaints, for whatever reason. I think Liam and Elliott did have a larger team some time back, so it could have been down to a rogue worker, but that's no excuse.

    My old Wildcat went in with Liam. I had it back that day and it was absolutely brilliant. He had plenty of time for me and shared his knowledge. I’d heard he was good with FX and wildcats In particular. Maybe just a bad experience, bit like mine with Country way over the phone. Maybe a one off?

    Glad it worked for you TR but like everything else in life there is good and bad in all. I sold the gun that lost me another £75. I was really looking forward to using it in the hide bashing pigeons.

    Exactly, some criticize all manner of tuners but then again mostly it's praise for them.

    Just a further note regarding Carl of Airtech. I sent him a PM to which he answered quite promptly accepting my sincere apology. So, hats of to Carl, a decent understanding and forgiving chap.:up::up:
