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.

    Hi folks, A little about myself ... I'm a medically retired Former Royal Marine living in Dorset married with 3 kids. I do not possess any Air weapons as yet. I have owned an HW97 and a very early Rapid 7. I have joined the Forum to renew my interest, update myself with current issues and further my (limited) knowledge. However I am not going rush out and buy loads of nice goodies until I am convinced I am up to it.

    I would love to try my hand at FT but my limited mobility is an issue which would (to my knowledge) preclude me from competing.

    I hope to find permission(s) to hunt somewhere in Dorset but would like to get to know folks on the Forum first.

    I am open to any help and advice I can get to start shooting again.

    I guess my first move (apart from reading and inwardly digesting everything on this Forum) is to hunt (excuse the pun) down any local clubs.

    I will take this opportunity to explain my Username. A 'Booty' or Bootneck is an Inter Service nickname for a Royal Marine and does NOT refer to the piece of human anatomy that our Colonial cousins across the pond would have you think!! The Wobbly bit comes from the way I now walk.

    Hi, and welcome to the best air rifle related forum on the net;

    I know you've shot air rifles before, but have a look at the link below - hopefully it'll answer a few of your questions or refresh your memory.

    Have a good snoop around the forum, as it's a wealthy of knowledge and information. Ask any questions you want and get stuck in. We're a pretty friendly and helpful bunch and will be glad to help you out if we can.

    Cheers,

    JR

    Welcome to the AGF, theres a well stocked gun shop up at waldron hill near Dochester, The sportsman gun centre, if you wanted to look at a few different rifles before you spend your cash.
