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.

    '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.

    Ages ago when I was a little younger my father-in-law's best mate used to take me out shooting and one of the hot nights we went to a skip yard he had 2 guns he let me use his sons and him his own,he had an air arms with multishot and I think his sons gun was a weirhauch of some kind. Anyway he passed me the gun and said "careful the trigger is very sensitive ok" and he walked about 20ft away and I was standing there with the gun in the air feeling very prestigious knowing that this gun I was holding was the mutts nuts.so I had my back to him and he called my name as I turned around I lowered the gun with one arm and it must have slipped and my finger hit the trigger.then my in-laws mate was bouncing around saying you shot me in the foot you(every swear word in the dictionary)I said ******** I thought he was kidding then I realised this was no joke and he had 8 or ten shots waiting for me,luckily he calmed down I was whiter than him I thought he was gonna shoot me but upon assessing the damage the pellet went right through his leather shoes and bust his big toe nail up something chronic

    People still remind me and the other bloke of that day all I can say is what a shot you couldnt pull it off by doing what happened it was fate meant to be

    I'm starting to go shooting with him again soon lets hope its blowed over

    Its a funny story but its a prime example of why general gun saftey is vital.

    Just cradling the gun like that and bang things like that happen.

    I'm glad to see this because its an example of when a small error can be dangerous.

    Saftey catches are there for a reason.

    Thanks for the story

    A1's right, I don't have a safety on my S410's ...don't ever rely on a safety catches ..... anyway, keep you trigger finger outside of the trigger guard, until you have taken aim and are about to fire.

    I got shot in the head way back in 1988ish. the offending weapon was a hw80 fitted with an oxspring. No fingers involved just a brass trigger shoe and a barbour jacket. My mate popped into some bushes to light his fag as it was windy,lifted his arm to light the fag and twang the gun went off and hit me about 10 yards away about 2 inch above my left eye. needed an operation to remove the slug ( went right through my skull and ended up 1.3mm away from the grey matter). I think I was very lucky as it was a bulldog but we were out that morning to try out a new box of prometheus with solid points and plastic outer. When I told the surgeon this he said if it had been one of them up the spout I would have been dead. Fate or just good luck? Take care with guns because they not only kill rabbits!!!:)
