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.

  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 sold my beloved ltd edition beretta at the weekend and really wondered if I had done the right thing or not as the wood and rarity was something you cant just buy off the peg, Ive had a few beretta,s but this was the prettiest but everything has a price.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    So I went a few days and although Ive had nice side plated guns I like something to handle clays as well as driven stuff and a bit of woodie shooting inbetween, and I did own a Caesar guerini I really regret selling also.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Anyway the first shotgun I ever bought new was a Browning 425 grade 3 and It fitted me perfectly despite being a game gun I used it for everything, and as Ive got a Browning semi auto and Browning fishing rods I do like the brand and the way their guns fit, so I went straight out and bought another but this one inmo is probably the prettiest browning Ive seen for a while, so hopefully it shoots as well, cant wait for the weather to get a bit better Im dying to shoot it.

    Hi Engraver,

    That figuring on the last two pictures is fantastic! I'm getting confused which stock belongs to what gun, but it's a different gun in the middle pic. think you are still uploading pictures as I type? Really nice stock. Not too clued up on Shotguns but know a nice bit of wood when I see it. :up:

    Hi mate, the last three pics are the new one, its just one picture was taken in the shop the other two by me in my house two minutes ago, but to be fair I want it look better because it was quite a bit more pricey than the others, so hopefully I can shoot it lol, but to be fair I shot the heck out of my first browning so it should shoot similar......he says...:D:D

    View attachment 95810 Hi Elliot. I decided to keep this George Fuller 12g Pinfire as no ticket is needed for it. It's had a hammer and the stock broken at some point in its life but it's a nice bit of Damascus.

    Thanks Simon Im definitely happy with how it looks but I may have to shoot a few hundred rounds to get to know Brownings again.

    They are basically a 425/525 internally and stocks shapes are the same, its just the sideplates that make it what a EELL is to Beretta.

    Funnily enough the three guns Ive pictured were all signed "Bottega Giovinelli" I have worked with people who have spent time there, its a place in the province of Brescia Italy that basically engraves only select individual models in the Browning, Beretta, Caesar guerini, and other shotgun manufacturers ranges usually side plated guns, its also where a lot of the future top engravers will begin or finish their career.;) check the gallery on their site out.:)

    I just took few pictures near a window and I just thought it interesting how the stock can look different in different light, showing its smokey grain.[​IMG][​IMG]
