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.

    Hmmm,
    Just got a Sunday(!) email from Just Cartridge’s, clearly informational without trying to cause panic....
    SO BUY NOW !!! Hmmmm!


    A message from Charles Bull, Just Cartridges Director


    These are challenging and worrying times due to the global spread of Coronavirus (Corvid-19). We hope that all precautionary measures are being followed to contain further spread of the virus, especially onto vulnerable friends and family members. We have also taken extra hygiene measures to ensure that we are operating in a safe and clean environment at all times.

    Fortunately for our sport, we operate in environments which often require the bare essentials and minimal human contact. If you find yourself not at work for whatever reason, maybe you are thinking of spending some time in a pigeon hide or at a clay ground if they remain open for the time being. Fresh air will certainly be better for you than second hand air at the moment…

    In recent days we have seen a large increase in cartridge sales to a level which is very uncommon for this time of year. Over the years we have invested significantly in a wide range of cartridges offered in the UK and overseas, allowing us to keep up with the current demand. We are working solidly to ensure all orders leave our warehouse on time to subsequently arrive next day where possible, however we trust that you are understanding given the circumstances that we are all facing.

    Although it’s hard to anticipate the forthcoming supply of cartridges it is inevitable the demand will outweigh the supply at some point, with a large proportion of components being manufactured in Italy, Spain and France. We have taken this into consideration and invested significantly in stock with the aim of fulfilling all orders being placed in the coming weeks. However at some point we anticipate that components will run short as borders are closed and this could very well lead to shortages.

    In the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us if you require advice or need to check stock availability.

    Director

    I was only there on Thursday, seemed quiet, no issue getting any of the carts I went in for and the warehouse at the back looks as full as it usually does!

    Well unless your a landowner or living on the land you shoot your not going to require too many cartridges over the next few weeks/months.
    Take care everyone.

    What it says about components from Italy and Spain is dead right.

    I got the last GAEP roll turn over tool from FES and he can’t get any more stuff from Italy for the time being. The Italians make millions of the wads and cases we use and also the tooling.

    Spain has Maxam and Rio brands which are also grouped with Eley.

    I can well see a disruption in supply.

    I can see more English carts on the market if supplies get disrupted.

    If you do pest control or in game syndicate and need to look after your shoot, you still can.
