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.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Just been through to settle one of my twin girls who was crying in her sleep and obviously was trying to be quiet.
    All you could hear when I stood up was my ankles,knees and hips cracking when I stood up,which of course woke her again (shes only 3 yrs old).
    I must be getting old!, oh well.

    Be handy if santa could bring you a new gun without having to go through all the FAC variation hooha!.
    My girls are fine,just wee touch of a cold coming on. They know I stay up late so just give me a shout in the small hours to get a cuddle.
    I can relate a bit to your sore back, I get sciatica in my leg and lower back from time to time always it seems when the farm is at its busiest!.
    Hurts like hell.
    Thats when a nice single malt comes in very handy,sod santa!.
    take care you
    regards
    sumo.

    Ive got about 300 acres,80 of which is woods and is great shooting.
    weve got stacks of bunnies,crows,pigeons etc and for the fullbore we have fox,red and roe deer.
    My unit is a suckler cow unit so biosecurity is pretty tight ie nobody shoots on it but me!.
    Just wish the damned ramblers and their bloody dogs would stay off!,but here in scotland we have a so called "right to roam" policy where any old tom dick or harry can wonder over our fields carrying . knows what from other farms:mad:.
    Mind you this time of night is when we get our other unwelcome guests ie Poachers who come after my deer.
    Ive got a few surprises for them tonight though heh heh:boxing:

    The only reason I asked if u had any airgunner, was, I love just being out in the country side, if the farmer said, don't do this, or I don't like anyone doing this, "I" and anyone with me will, not do it "out of respect,.."you may think this guy's is a bit of a shi* bag", you entitled to,...I don't pay for my shooting rights, "food for thought for all air-gunners on this forum" if u had to pay how much would u be charged...every xmas with out fail I take my land owner a bottle of fine Malt Whiskey just to say thank you.:)and am happy to do so, not wanting anything in return....I have had many a air gunner say they have lost there permission for no reason, and I have always asked the above, and always get the same expression:confused:

    I hear what your saying but as the landowner the buck stops with me.
    If someone gets hurt on my land, IM the one liable period!.
    I let 2 young lads shoot over my land a few years back as an act of faith as I knew their folks but it wasnt long before they were turning up on sundays with their mates and their whippets coursing hares,big no no!.
    since they knew the layout of my place too, them and their buddies would appear in the wee small hours every weekend in my woods "entertaining their lucky ladies", so a line had to be drawn enough was enough.
    once bitten twice shy!.
    so its nothing personal against airgunners ok, so no offence.

    well, if you do decide on a road trip up north then you are more than welcome to bunk up with us!.
    Even got 3 log Lodges on my farm I let for holidays as well as a stone cottage for holidays too.
    Real rural like!.
    Nothing like a cow mooing at your window at 3 in the morning in summer.
    It the best part of the day anyways in june, warm peaceful and quiet like. What more could you ask for?.
    (and the airport is only 4 miles away!).
    Laffin really I suppose but my hearts in breeding cattle not in holiday accomodation but farming as an industry is now dead and buried thanks to Gordon Brown :handjob:so I have to look elsewhere to make a buck, sad really.
