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.

    Hi all as the title, I'm looking at doing my FAC and would like some options of rifles in lefty. I'm looking for either .22lr or .17 hmr maybe both depending on ticket, also in the future .223-.243
    i quite like the look of the t bolt target varmint but not sure if they cater for South paws!!?? Budget would be around the £1000 mark for rifle only scope would be under a different budget. Thanks in advance and oh I'm looking for something short around the 16" barrel area. Thanks. Jason

    Theses are the guys to speak to http://www.caltonmoorrange.com/ they specialise in left handed rifles without taking you to the cleaners on either new or s/h.

    One of my shooting buddies is a lefty he's had .22, hmr .243 & 308 from them with all round excellent service.

    Unless you plan on keeping it for good, some would advise against a leftie because they can be hard to shift.

    Took me a couple of years to finally get my Anschutz 1417 in full lefty mode, even the RFD's said Anschutz didn't make one but they do and it's a cracker![​IMG]

    Hi,
    I am LH and left eyed and have shot military rifles all my life with no problem at all, just operate the bolt with your left hand over the action? I doubt if you will be doing volley fire.....
    Only when you come to more modern shaped stocks do you have a problem. With all my Weihrauch air rifles I buy ambi stocks.
    As above full LH rifles may be difficult to sell. Before you decide try and borrow some guns and have a go on the range.
    The problem comes if you are LH and right eyed :)
    Good luck.
    Peter.
