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.

    Hello Jack,
    What a lucky young man you are to have a friend as good as Andy.:up:
    I see from your profile that you are in the Boy's Brigade - so was I!:up: Keep up the fishing, as well as being a nice hobby, it will help you to learn to respect and enjoy nature, in that way you'll be ready for your air rifle when you're a little older.:) It's a shame your Dad doesn't have more time for you, but tell Andy that I said your Dad's loss is our gain on this forum, be sure and post us again soon;)

    Jack, can you see how skilfull Fred has been with his use of a computer program called 'Photoshop'?
    He's taken a picture of a Pike, and a picture of himself when he was much younger and then used Photoshop to blend the two pictures together to make it look like he caught it:D

    Here's how I do it -

    Ever since I was a young boy,
    I've used the air rifle
    From Soho down to
    Brighton
    I must have shot them all.
    but you ain't seen nothing like me
    In any amusement hall.
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid
    Sure shoots a mean rifle!

    I stand like a statue,
    Become part of the machine.
    Finger on the trigger
    Always hit them clean.
    Shoot by intuition,
    The Bunny Rabbits fall
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid
    Sure shoots a mean rifle!

    He's an airgun wizard
    There has to be a twist.
    An airgun wizard,
    Who’s only slightly p****d!

    How do you think he does it?
    I don't know!
    What makes him so good?

    Ain't got no distractions
    Can't smell no funny smells,
    Don't see no lights a flashin'
    Shoot by sense of smell.
    Always gets the rabbit,
    Always see him fall,
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid
    Sure shoots a mean rifle.

    I think I am,
    The air rifle king.
    So I’m not handing
    My shooting crown to him.

    Even with my least liked rifle
    You can’t beat my best.
    His disciples lead him in
    And I just do the rest.
    He's got crazy trigger fingers
    Never seen him fall.
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid
    Sure shoots a mean rifle!
