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.

    dear god! I can`t help sorry but I had one for years and loved it. it was a fact that popping the barrel out into someones shin, a*se cheek or indeed any body part hurt more than actually firing at them but they were great fun.

    hope you find one mate and have as much fun as first time round

    Ha ha I remember that! At a fair last weekend they had arrange where you had to hit a ring resting on a bottle so it fell over the bottle neck, first shot I won £10, but the second and third were all over the place! Something about innaccuracy that is almost as much fun as groupings in a 50p with an air rifle... Complete opposites but still fun

    Oh 3cm, they work by pushing the barrel in (pop out mechanism). They could fire darts, pellets, *** and even the old ones a fly swat! But the pellets literally bounce off paper targets lol...

    Nice little collection! One thing I found since coming back into air guns is the new laws... Before you could buy guns at cheap prices and pay little p&p.. I'm in Kent and all these places are too far away and my snobbish gun shop (used to be normal and fun) want £30 to bring in any guns... Ridiculous! The g10 was my upgrade too..l I then got into air soft with mates in our teens and our gardens were peppered with *** from our budget shoot outs! Awesome fun. The g10 are now obsolete too.... After one of those too! Lol

    My mate bought one when we were both on the dole :D
    We used to go down to the racecourse and see how far we could shoot over the river Seven,if we could see the pellet land that is.

    £45 for a rough gat or £65 for mint in box with all the bits I'm afraid the days of cheep gats are gone and it's people like us who are keeping the price high. I know I'v paid a bit over the odds just to get that special gun ;) . If you are a colector you will understand if not you never will.
