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.

    HI,

    Ive been looking at getting a hard plastic gun case for my r10 and my boys 97k. I was after one that I could fit both scoped guns in.

    Ive now given up on this idea as I cant seem to find one that will accommodate both.

    so what im asking is, where would you recommend to get a gun safe, ive seen them on the online retailers and on the bay.

    If im going to get a safe, id like one that will be suitable if I go for my shotgun or fac.

    Cheers

    Any of the big name cabinets (Bratton Sound et al) will be legal by definition.

    Some folks like the BSA cabinets.

    I recently bought a couple of 6 rifle GDK cabinets off the bay: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/G-D-K-Trading

    Inexpensive, fast delivery, excellent products, my FLO gave them the thumbs up as well :)

    Just keep in mind that scoped rifles require a totally different depth of cabinet...

    As stated most Gun Cabinets are made for Shotgun's

    So you will have issues storing Scoped rifles -

    Or look at Fire Arms Stlye Mounts - Weaver that allows easy removal of Scope and replacement without need
    Of rezeroing -

    If you want to go for SGC or FAC in the future you need to install it to certain standards acceptable to the Police, mounted on a structural or bearing wall - plasterboard won't do, out of sight from windows - inside a cupboard is good, & well fixed, Rawlbolts are mentioned but in practise any solid anchor will do - in my experience they turn up to check it out & just give it a good tug.

    I've got Brattonsound extra deep cabinets, they're very well made and secure, they're extra deep for scoped rifles and have an internal separate lockable ammo compartment.

    The only downside to these is they never hold as many rifles as they're stated to, mine are 7's but, they will only hold 5 scoped rifles without the risk of damage.

    Having said that, all of my rifles have bi pods and slings fitted, so that doesn't help with space saving, they're very good cabinets though ;)

    Another vote for GDK. Well priced and they do deep ones for scoped rifles. I only had space for a 3 gun standard depth, but it fits two scoped guns in at an angle fine.

    Make your own or get a friendly carpenter or joiner to do one for you. Get it made to your sizes and requirements and big enough for scoped air rifles. As long as it's lockable that's all you need.

    Here is mine, I made it with the help of a joiner friend. Total cost 70 quid.

    Thanks for that, just goes to show, over a foot deep & a pretty snug fit for a scoped rifle.

    Im swaying more to the bsa i think.

    Has anyone got the GS8LTD ??

    I cant seem to find any pics of that exact model. Am I right in thinking it has an ammo box inside?

    Cheers

    I think I do, at least I have the BSA 8-9 gun extra deep with locking ammo box

    takes everything I have ever put in it. larger rifles like an MPR + 6-24 viper fit fine - I suspect that 7 rifles will be comfortable as ling as not everyone has a massive sidewheel

    quick note, this beast is *heavy* it is almost on the border of what is possible for 1 person to lift ( and not for very far)
