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.

  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.

    Has anyone filled in the new application forms? I am currently filling one in but can't find anywhere to allow my potentially new FAC to finish at the same time as my current SGC. there is a tick box on page1 saying about wanting to apply for a SGC to expire at the same time as your FAC but not sure if I should tick yes or no.

    Also section 13. (p.3) Details of firearms currently held do I need to list shotguns (non FAC obviously on my SGC)?

    Thanks in advance...

    Am sure there will be a few more questions in the time to come!

    Your existing sgc will finish early and you will get a new one that finishes the same time as your new fac.
    (Your new fac won't finish the same time as an existing sgc)
    You do need to fill in the sgc questions guns owned etc etc.
    Cheers Andy

    That is fine -I will not tick the box and hope this happens automatically when my current SGC runs out and I go to renew it. Will loose a year or so but not a problem.

    I will put down all my shotguns in the currently held firearms section.

    Thanks. :thumb:

    If you want them to run together at the low price you renew your sgc now and get two new certificates.

    Thanks Andy, that makes sense on the form now! Have ticked all the right boxes and will save me a lot of hassle in the long run only renewing once for both -as well as a fair amount of money over time!

    Thanks again Andy. Looked at those but thought may as well get one that was rated a bit higher to keep money in etc too. Considering the ebay link is not much different in price more inclined to go for that one.

    When applying for ammo will stick with the quantities mentioned above. Is there anything else I should put on there? expanding? hollow points?

    When looking at the form again it only asks for calibre (metric/imperial) and then quantity. No mention about type of ammunition - does than mean I can buy as I see fit at the time?

    hi bud I think you will find the buy and the hold ammounts will be different (at least they are where I live)

    you may be allowed to hold that many but the buy ammount may be lower, I can hold 500 .22 hollow point but can only buy 200 at a time, no problem to top up amounts when I use them though, and 200 .17 with a buy limit of 100 again no problem to top supplies up as required, I have never needed more as i have 2 rfds within 5 mins of home,

    When you are granted an fac for quarry shooting expanding ammo should be granted automatically. It won't do any harm to put expanding in brackets after your calibre if you wish to, but you should not need to do so.

    You need to put .17hmr and not .17 etc as obviously there are many rounds that are .17 caliber.

    You only need to put the maximum amount of ammunition you wish to hold for each calibre down on the form.
    You will discuss ammunition at your interview with the feo and amounts may well be changed anyway.
    Cheers Andy

    With the new fac there is no difference between buy and hold amount
    My referee's are my mate and my employer who both have a clean police record
