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.

    There are quite a few "expert" distillers at JD and their single barrel all tastes the same though!
    Maybe Sinatra is a better bet?

    Should have put it on a UK motorway stop- no one would bat an eyelid at 700 quid there!

    I always wondered how long it took to select, bag, check fillers and mags, and stack in the hall 18 guns that may (or may not) fit in th eback of my car.
    1 hour 43 mins.

    Too knackered to go now :(

    It went really well - well I thought so. A short talk by Tony and his team, a bit of history and then opened up the guns to be shouldered/shot

    Very good turn out.

    Great to see engaging manufacturers. Hope the others now follow suit and allow us to try their products out at a decent range. Credit to Pete for organising today.
    Whilst there my Mk4 mag had a failure. Daystate boys tinkered with it then replaced it f.o.c ....result!

    Thanks to all who attended, as Keith said the turn out was very good!

    I will find out what mags they will be doing an article in and you can look out for your pic!

    A friend spotted my pic once in a review of the IWA trade show in Germany, there I was in the middle of the Isle behind the subject, read the mag (shooting sports) and didn't even spot myself LOL!

    Yes, thanks Mark I have watched Tony talk on many YouTube videos but to meet him and the team in person and talk about about the Daystate brand of guns was intriguing I'm also glad I had the chance to shoulder some of the guns as the next purchase on my list I didn't like once tried...

    Yup, daystate talk was actually interesting!
    Nice to meet @Tim_B , even if he withheld the urge to buy some lovely guns :laff::laff:
    Another happy customer, Wolverine 2 has gone off With Tony with a personal guarantee that it will be fixed, once and for all :)
    the older daystates were lovely- I really, really want a mirage now, light as a feather and so, so nice. Got some good info on the ones I have and the ones that I (now) want, but with runs of 25 or so, pretty sure I wont be finding any too soon.
    Getting to Petes at long last was quite nice, and a zeroing day to take advantage of it, got 14 done in the end (would have been 9, but as @Spray1Mark was kind enough to let me know the M25 was completely caffed, gave me an excuse to do a few more. Did seem weird shooting with no wind or rain, but all told a good day.

    Thats great, IMO Tony is a true ambassador for the sport, you have to thank Gareth for the collectors items!
