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.

    Just been looking at the Pulsar Digisight N750 on the Scott Country website, now all I need is a way to convince SHMBO (she who must be obeyed) that I need one.

    Just tell her that the voices in you head told you to do it. Then start slobbering with a blank expression on your face.
    Works for me.

    here is a story from the corvids way................around 13 years ago i decided i was ready for a staffy, so i broached the subject with the mrs. it was only a tentative enquiry to see how she felt. she loved staffies and her dad always had one.

    her reply was...........' i am telling you now, you are not, and i mean not getting a dog!'

    and off to work she went.

    i was only making an enquiry as to how the land lied, so thyat very day off i went and bought a dog, he is still with us today :up:

    Buy it along with this http://www.moneysupermarket.com/deals/national-deals/2422/aspire/view-deal

    Hand the necklace and earrings over and tell her that you bought these expensive heart shaped female accoutrements as a token of your undying love and appreciation for her.

    Next day ask to go out hunting with said gun item attached to rifle and say "oh I just picked up this as I needed it for ............ ", kiss her and then walk out happy that you were honest and had done what was best!

    Good luck

    If you have a joint account you are screwed, if not do as I do, when my mum says no more guns I buy several more and don't tell her. She doesn't know the difference, to her a gun is a gun and I walk straight past her with them.

    Cant believe what I am reading, tell her the truth. Its the only option for a loving relationship. So you got that, and remember to sound excited that you actually won the competition. Jump up and down a bit, run around the room, scream and shout. Good luck. All the best Si.

    Yes. Tell her the truth. You've bought a gun. (assuming that you're not stealing food off the table/mortgage money to do so) End of story.
    Enjoy it. Offer to take her shooting with it. It could be something you share together. :rolleyes: :)

    Are testicles not common fixtures on agf? Lol.

    Mine isn't keen on my fac plans but she knows I'll do it anyway.

    Never set precedent for doing as you're told. . . It's a slippery slope!

    How about 'My Dear isn't it time for a new handbag' then offer to help buying it.
    You know buying your new "Pulsar" would make you complete and happy !!
    Well it worked for me and I am almost through with the post shopping therapy :)
