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, have just had a fac air rifle added to my fac and I notice that my land permission is not shown, it just says land that is approved by cheif officer and for which I have permission. I had an fac years ago which I handed back in when I stopped shooting back then but I am sure the details of my permissions were on the licence, maybe I am mistaken. Anyway I now have 800 acres approved by local FA officer to use my cz 452 varmint heavy barrel on and the new air rifle when I get one. I am on the look out for a 2007 + mk 1 factory fac theoben rapid. Reason for the air rifle is for use in woodland shooting squirrels and corvids which sheep farmer who owns land wants reducing. Because I don't shoot up with rim fire the theoben with much less carry will be ideal. I had one back in the nineties and it was terrific. I prefer the newer mk1 stock plus a more recent gun would be I hope in better condition. So if any one has such a rifle and wants to sell please pm me. Incidentally the cz which I bought brand new 8 months ago I have pillar bedded. I have details and pics which may be shown in mays edition of the monthly BASC magazine. Great forum thanks, phil.

    Somebody can correct me, but i think the 2007 model will be the mk2 version, it will probably have the mk4 trigger block too.Go for the 19" barrel, also i believe the mk2 version came with a reg as standard, The mk1 was fast flow only.
    If you need help sourcing the correct rifle, then have a look at the theoben forums , theres 2.
    http://www.rapid7ownersclub.com/index.php and http://theoben-rapid.co.uk/ Theres also a facebook club too which is invite only and isnt visible to the general public.hope that helps T

    i will second that there is a lot of helpful people on the rapid 7 owners club and if you do get the wrong one they would help you get it sorted . i have a ben taylored fac rapid mk 2 with a 16 " barrel and it really does do the job . but there are others on there that sell and set up regs and others that can setup a mk 1 without reg to perfection . atb gary.

    How do you know if your ticket is open or closed, mine says " the .22 air rifle, .22 RF Mag and ammunition shall be used for shooting and any other lawful quarry and for zeroing on ranges, or land deemed suitable by the chief officer of police for the area where the land is situated and over which the holder has lawful authority to shoot. Is this deemed open or closed. Thanks for the input. Phil.

    Closed.

    The police decide what caliber is safe to shoot on the land = closed.
    You decide what caliber is safe to shoot on the land = open.

    If you shoot on farmland it will make very little difference to you open or closed as most will have been inspected already.
    Cheers Andy
