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.

    I have been watching this most of the day and it's captivated me. Should I become aware that the GTA pressured dealers to avoid importing or even recommending legislation both my AGW and BASA subscriptions get cancelled right away.

    I just tried posting but they still have me muted by moderation....censorship at its best in a country where we fought for freedom of speech ;)

    Really hope the truth comes out, in total, and heads roll for this. I for one called BASC earlier this week and informed them the GTA et al were working behind closed doors to have the HO ban semi auto, TD continues to say they are illegal where they are not...

    If beggers belief what TD is up to here, what is his agenda, who is he acting on behalf of and who voted him into that position?

    I don't understand how the rifles get into the country if they are a banned item. I think he has it wrong on this one.

    It can't be the retailers, they'd make money from selling them. It can't be the manufacturers as I'm sure Daystate, AA and a host of smaller UK companies could produce world beating SA's. So I really don't get why a trade group would push for this?

    Surely that just clarifies the notice that the HO sent out; not a recommendation from any particular party?

    Your post says it all unfortunately, because they are prohibited.

    Wish they weren't.

    Kind regards

    Daystate took their semi auto to open days, allowed the public to shoot it, when asked if they would release it explained they had been told if they did the HO may move to ban them....so, even though they were admitting they were legal that day, they still had been advised that they were legal, and were allowing people to shoot it, but would not release it.

    I have no doubt... Daystate would not allow the public to shoot a sect 5 weapon...they weren't, they were allowing the public to shoot a legal sub12 semi auto.

    I don't own an FAC but have shot many FAC rifles including muzzle loaders and shotguns at the midland game fair.
    Why should daystate not allow a FAC rifle to be shot by the public at a similar event.

    because they would not go sect1, they would go sect5 prohibited...which is what Terry Doe and the GTA are saying they are.

    so why would Daystate take a sect 5 gun along to an event and allow the public to shoot it?
