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.

    I thought I was bad by having about a dozen or so, but I've still got about 6 in the cupboard, so not really a problem with only buying/selling about one a month, although with prices the way they are it's harder not to be too much out of pocket by the time you cover fuel.

    Sorry to mislead - I've bought about a dozen guns this year, but to be fair 2 are AA:D, I've sold a few also, so I currently have 6, and only 4 are Daystates:eek: The new E Wolverine is out soon though, so unless it's a dog I'll be looking very closely at one of these, so I really do have to sell a couple, but not before I've had my wicked way with them:eek:.

    Not at all, good sir.

    More like the "but at least I haven't spent this..." route. Damage limitation!

    'S awright, got a new rifle the other day and stuck it with the other two in the bedroom. She still hasn't noticed they're multiplying. Think I'll be safe for a while yet... :cool:

    James,
    So one of the AA is an EV2, the other is an FTP?
    What are your thoughts on these pair.

    One is an EV2 MKIV View attachment 99997

    The other an S510 superlite for my son View attachment 99999

    The EV2 is very accurate and running at around 11.2 with JSBs, it's everything it should be for a competition gun, but I'm just not bonding with it, hence me buying another Panther, I think I'm going to cross the two Panthers I have and make a normal one and a super one! So I may sell the EV2 soon and just try to get my money back, I'll be down n the travel etc, but I don't think I'm going to use it, which is a pity as it's the most accurate gun I have.

    The S510 is a cracking little gun, I got it for my son as he was struggling with a bolt - too much time of the xbox and not enough climbing trees:eek:, very accurate, easy to cock, light to handle, but the poplar stock is easily marked, but I'll worry about that in a few years.

    I have heard it said that if you want to know how much a man will spend on his hobby look at the car he drives as people will spend the same on their car as their hobby.

    Great fun can be had trying to judge what car people have from their past times spending ;-)
