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'd love to take up air gunning of one sort or another. The problem is the missus doesn't want me to keep a gun at home, she has her reasons which I respect.
    Any suggestions where I can keep a gun if / when I buy one or maybe .....
    Many thanks Lozzuck

    I understand your partners concerns (saying that I dont, what is her main objection). I would fit a strong gun safe that would be used for storage, if she was not happy then I would be telling her to get a grip:). Your options otherwise are limited to a mates house or maybe an RFD where you would need to pay.

    Now that seems like a more workable suggestion.
    Does anyone know of one in the Biddulph, Leek, Macclesfield area

    Would a gun cabinet work for your wife or is it the principle of owning a gun that is the problem. If it is the latter, speak to your local RFD to establish what clubs there are, his cost for storage.
    I used to work with a guy who had a .25 rifle which his wife would not have in the house so he got permission from our managing director to put a steel locker at the office to store the gun and as we all had keys for the building, he just picked it up when he wanted. It may be worth asking if that was possible for you depending on your employment situation.

    My old friend owned a small holding and was always hacked off with crows on his place so he installed a cabinet in one of the out buildings fully lined with loft insulation left over from a job so that he could quickly get to the gun. He never seemed to have any rusting problems which surprised me when you consider how cold it gets this time of the year although it wasn't an expensive gun.

    Thanks Phil
    A Gun cabinet wouldn't work ( Her sister had a bad experience while out in South Africa) but she hasn't tried to put me off shooting. The work idea is certainly a consideration they have a cellar that may be suitable with an insulated cabinet assuming it was secure enough. I'll ask tomorrow.
    Also a previous work partner used to run a shoot, although its a little out of the way, maybe I could impose.
    Thanks for the ideas ,memory joggers.

    Ask Jim at Dolphin in Stoke nicely, he might let you store it there if you use the range there.

    Thanks for that, I was thinking of visiting Dolphin to look at the guns there, that may be a deal clincher

    Oh well it was worth a try :(, good luck with finding somthing but to be honest why not just find a range that will rent you a rifle by the hour ? That way when you get fed up you haven't all the trouble of selling it .

    anyway off to the Man cave :D

    Hi lozzock
    If you can't keep it at home, where do you plan shooting it?..maybe that's the 1st hurdle...or the 2nd!
    Good luck

    Thanks
    I was thinking of maybe going to Dolphin or something similar and hopefully joining a gun club but open to suggestions. btw Garden isn't big enough to shoot in.

    I guess try your local clubs, and see if they have storage facility's..unless they will hire you one for the session?
    Maybe take your other half along? She might see another side to it..
