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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Yeah I don't quite think that's how the law is intended. I would like to see what happened if a copper walked into the house. What would happen if you were burgled...??? etc etc

    Coppers can't just walk into peoples houses unless they have a search warrant or are going to arrest someone, ie they cant just turn up willy nilly for tea & biccies and you dont have to let them in unless it is for the 2 reasons stated above ( ;- )

    Don't be so nieve, if a copper turns up at 99.99% of houses in the UK and wants to come in they will let them. Also if someone else visiting see guns on a wall they could quite easily ring and make a quite rightly concerned call to the Police, warrant obtained easily.

    Anyway I was going to offer a solution that I use. I bought one of these for my wall rack, the guns are in a locked room but I also use the wire anchored to the wall and run through the triggers. It also serves as a massive deterent for people who ALWAYS want to pick them up. They see the wire and lock and then leave alone.

    AFAIK the law says you have to take reasonable precautions to keep your airguns out of reach of under 18's.
    How you do that is specified in various bits of guidance, but, its only guidance, not law.
    Its up to you to prove that you did everything reasonable if you get your collar felt.
    Like most of the others bits of firearms law, its very wooly and open to interpretation.
    Best advice is to stay safe and lock em up whenever and however you can...
    Just my 2c worth... :thumb:

    Actually had two in the house last year making an inquiry about the neighbors and they didn't blink an eyelid.

    And the same as would happen in any burglary...if they want it they take it whether its in a bolted down case or not.

    And in any case...my house my rules!

    Exactly - hanging them on a wall would not be what I would consider "reasonable" - but hey each to their own.

    See above...

    Why do people have to turn something that's aesthetically pleasing to us air gun nuts and make it political.:facepalm::rolleyes:

    Any more political crap and I'll just delete the thread!

    I always laugh at the "under 18" part of airgun storage legislation. What's the difference between keeping a 17 year old out and keeping an 18 year old out? What magical skills of cat burglary do people receive on their 18th birthday?

    Anyway, nice display. I've been thinking about doing something similar.

    Section 17 pace, Section 32 pace, MDA act powers of entry, terrorism act, common law powers, preserving life under ECRH to name but a few...all sorts of reasons a fed can lawfully enter your property. If they turn up for one of these reasons and you obstruct their entry then you'll find your door put in and you'll be off on holiday in handcuffs.

    Being the biggest on the team it usually fell to me to put the door in, and being the biggest on the team I'd usually hit them so hard I'd rip the frame out the wall rather than just burst the door open. And then I'd thoroughly enjoy slapping handcuffs on barrack room lawyers who would tell us that we couldn't do that which we'd just done - they'd then have a chance to tell the the same to a Magistrate, who would invariably ask them what solicitor had told them that...?

    I think the OPs guns look great. I don't lock up my kitchen knives in case I'm burgled, and they're far more likely to be used in crime than air weapons. I would love a load of mine on display, but none of them look terribly exciting and I don't think even the easy going Mrs Patton would swing for it.

    So is it actually incorrect that you need a reason to smash someone's front door in then, ie. a search warrant to be able to use force in order to arrest?

    The difference? None. But statute is a blunt tool and only works if things are defined as much as possible, which is surprisingly difficult. There is no difference really between 69mph, 70mph, and 71mph say for motorway speeds limits. But there has to be a defined point where things become legal or illegal.
