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.

    On now. Piers Morgan is making our dear health minister look a buffoon and ripping him to shreds. Totally incompetent, clueless, and hopelessly out of his depth.

    I am 63

    I have intently listened to Government/expert advice for at least 2 weeks.

    The expert advice that I have understood is that one could go out BUT KEEP TO THE RULE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING.

    I went for a motor cycle ride yesterday, yet I feel that I have been labelled a "Moron"/"Idiot".

    You weren't in search of a rogue pub, or queuing for a crowded chip shop, presumably, so I'd say you weren't acting like a moron, or an idiot.
    From the point of view of infection limitation, it's unfortunate this weekend was so fine and sunny. Virtually every weekend since Christmas it might've been impossible, or not much fun, to go out on a bike. I know poor weather has kept me in and like many on here, I imagine, I've cancelled more shooting outings this past winter than I can ever remember.

    I went for a ride yesterday as well. I'm not sure how that would be classed as daft? I didn't touch anybody or get within 2 metres of anybody, and didn't stop anywhere. I literally left my house, rode for a couple of hours, then rode straight back home.

    The advice is changing more than once daily, last week it was fine to enjoy the outside if distancing, this week it is stay indoors, there will be more advice during the day and the PMs 5 o'clock briefing will tell us what next.

    Last year 20,000 motorcyclists were injured in accidents, not always their fault but they all needed attending and treating which takes front line services away from what they need to be doing and risks increasing infections and deaths exponentially, purely because someone fancied a ride.

    Same for going for a cycle, drive or walk, crap can happen and it's no good saying "it was bad luck" when it wasn't necessary. Going out to get booze, cigs, ammo - not essential.

    The reason we will have more draconian clampdowns is because people don't understand "stay indoors" - tens of thousands of military could be involved and we shouldn't expect them to show any sympathy if we are keeping them away from their families and putting them at risk because we can't follow a simple order.

    I'm out of milk by Wednesday but it isn't essential, just desirable, as it stands I have a delivery on the 4th, it will have to do.

    No, you are the sane one. Keep doing what your doing. Our local hospital has now opened its 4th ward for Corona virus

    Presicely. He published stories about the conduct and actions of our armed forces, even though he knew that it was lies. He is a traitor and should be treated as such.

    I often find myself agreeing with Piers, but this morning he was nothing but a self-aggrandising obnoxious oaf. Matt Hancock couldn't get a word in and it was left to a rather exasperated looking Dr Hilary Jones to diplomatically but firmly put Piers in his place on the question of herd immunity.

    Very pleased to learn that I'm not the only one that remembers that. What a despicable excuse for a human being.

    All to easy for self opinionated narcissists like Morgan with the benefit of hindsight to belittle others who are doing the best they can, with the sole intention of trying to make himself look clever.
    All he does is show himself to be the w4nker he is.

    Yeah, no doubt show-boating off the back of a mass-appeasing, "common sense" moral argument to feed his own putrifying ego.

    Absolute scumbag.
