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.

  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.

    All terriers should kill rats and anything else underground even the show dogs have to prove them selves against a pelt had a cracking Plummer before the show type took over them as white van man says tho prices are unreal after a bit of googling about times gone by we were given dogs from neighbouring towns and vice versa to open are blood lines and stop inbreeding also a social thing /boasting if u will when your pups grew up to a great hunter money was never a option maybe a few beers between lads but not 300-400 quid now needed to buy a dog that might die first time u take it out to the country side

    totally agree that's just the way things were , terriers patterdale ,borders , jack russels , lakelands were free them days .
    the only thing you payed for was lurchers then you would get a "TRIAL" 3 DAYS USUALLY . the money was always said to be left on the fireplace . if they boasted this dog can do hares, lamping,
    retrieving , etc

    another best great dog of my life was a bedlington cross greyhound blue bitch we use to call the sidewinder ,could she work the lamp she murdered the rabbits , faithful to the last, ready to sleep all day but soon as the lamp and motorbike battery in the satchel was picked up she was a different dog , whippet xgreyhound I had for a few years to ,the world fastest dogs combined ,that was like an exocet missile being slipped . the lighter dogs and smaller dogs seemed to come of better in a collision than the big stuff .

    Hi Mick, we had a Russell called Ben the best ratter I ever saw, remember next doors moving a shed which the rats were under, when the shed moved boy did he take them out, one nearly as big as him and he never got bitten, good luck with your new one mate.

    think the top and bottom is mick get one but do not pick a male [dog] my friend barny has one now [that he got given ] another loon that thinks he is a much bigger dog than he is .all the lads laugh when someone walks out of his flat ..... he will let you in lol but try and leave :D
    the breeding has took its toll of a good few centurys of breeding ... " but now everyone wants a cuddly dog these days "? its not going to happen overnight with these mick lol

    best to get a bitch :D would I have another male .. probably they are relentless and always alert for battle as mark says . for the average owner probably a nightmare . I call it good character .

    my grandad always said ohhh you have a dog . what is it . "reply a jack russel" his question ok will it protect you . answer "CERTAINLY" without doubt .

    mine would of gave his life knowing that it was his last battle .

    the pups grew up and certainly protected there owners to a point they are a one man dog , possessive to the max . food might persuade them but you only had 2 seconds before they wolf it down and they are back with a vengeance they seem doubly cheesed off that you tried to trick them and take them as a fool then your in for it !!!!, split seconds before you miss the opportunity to get out of its way .:eek:

    the old people my grand parents and such said if a dog doesn't protect you what is its purpose , and its pointless feeding it ! they do have a point . but being pc correct these days if your house gets broke into , the criminal will probably make a claim these days . :mad: I call it , they got what was coming .

    they sleep with one eye open . never fully relaxing .always on the ball . "always" .

    i always wanted an alaskan mal, but due to size never did, probably never will. i was looking around for a jack because reading into them they are perfect in every way, from pet to ratter. anyway the time come and i couldnt get one for less than £300. i ended up getting able, a black lab pup, in my profile pic and he was my best friend for 2 years. we got pregnant and able was to hyper as dog and had to give him to a farmer i shot for. he now has the life of riley.

    any hoo, i have been thinking more and more about getting (my original choice) a jack, but are they ok around cats as a rule? or is it just down to the dogs own nature.

    you boys will be the death of me, cos she will kill me if she thinks ive got a hope of getting another dog.
