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.

    EDIT: This competition is NOW CLOSED:

    Competition Info:

    The winner of this competition will be the AGF member who correctly guesses the answer to this question:

    What is the weight (in g) of this tin of pellets? (See first picture):

    Please simply post your name and the weight you are guessing, (one guess only per AGF member) and once posted you cannot subsequently change your guess

    To make it a tad harder, I am not telling you which pellets I have used, or the calibre of pellet.
    If no one guesses the correct weight, I will give the prize to the person who comes nearest, (without going over the correct weight!).

    If more than one person guesses the correct answer, I will put those names into a hat and draw a winner.

    My decision is final, no bloody moaning! (its just a bit of fun!)

    Description of prizes:
    1 x GAT gun, (T J Harringtons), old in .177 cal, Black, some marks / scuffing, no box, no corks, no darts, just the gun. It does work. It does have the pellet probe, but the trigger is very stiff, (may benefit from a TBT kit?)

    1 x Silicone treated gun sock / bag (new), black, unopened.

    A scope mounted spirit level, (with free bubble), black, metal, new, unused.

    A mini spirit level, (again with free bubble), ideal for placing on the rifle or top of scope to gauge if level or not, (approx 30mm long by 10x10mm).

    Two small Squires combination locks, (PTCL20) ideal for locking gun slips / cases. Both combinations set to 0,0,0. Locks are approx 23mm wide x 53mm long, space between shank is about 8mm, length of locking shank is about 18mm.

    A neoprene, stretchy, elasticated type of shotgun shell or CO2 cartridge holder. Slips over a rifle butt. This is about 160mm long and is slightly tapered, the short end being about 90mm and the long end being about 100mm, but the will stretch to around 130mm and 140mm.

    A small plastic, battery operated wind meter (Anemometer), yellow and black, brand new, not used. Approx 100mm long by 45mm wide, comes with free coin type battery and instructions.

    What you waiting for? Get guessing.... :thumb:

    What a generous competition!
    Before I make a considered guess based on not a lot, and the state of the tide at London Bridge, could answers be provided to the following questions regarding the prizes?

    Whilst the bubbles might be free are they metric or imperial?
    Does the Gat have left or right handed smooth bore?
    Which currency is the coin shaped battery based upon?
    If the anemometer is wind operated can it be converted to recharge the above coin shaped battery?
    Do the combination locks come with a training manual to show how to open them? I only ask as the present Mrs Dag was overheard saying she used to have trouble getting the combinations off a chap where she worked.
    Many thanks
    Dag
    Given that the above have absolutely nothing to do with the original question I will make a guess at:
    95g without a lid and 100 g with lid
