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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Air Rifle shooting Insurance

    Forgive me if there's a thread for this already,

    Given it's pay day tomorrow, it only seems right to spend money on something air rifle related and treat myself ((;
    First in line is a cheeky tuning kit for Gertrude from Tinbum. But secondly, before I go running around asking for permissions, I figured it be best to get myself an air rifle insurance policy out to go along with the permissions slip/request whatever you'd like to call it. I've been looking at the policy BASC have to offer and it seems more than fair. Was just wondering if I'm missing out on any other policies out there?

    Much appreciated,

    Ryan

    I've been with BASC for the last 5 years or so mate. There where a few other options about at the time but I'd seen so many others using them I just went with them.

    i also think BASC is the more recognised and a more popular name can help swing a land owner into letting you shoot there land.

    Yeah I was kinda thinking along the lines of that to myself. If the landowner recognises BASC as being a strong name then it may sway them towards allowing me to shoot their land as you said

    I signed up to BASC start of last month, I had all the emails etc and the money has been withdrawn but not received anything in the post... Perhaps it's all emailed these days in which I thought was a tad poor as all I had was an insurance reference number.

    Totally agree BASC is probably more recognisable, but don't discount SACS. Their insurance is very good and reasonable and top service to boot.

    My first insurance was with BASA but purely because they were cheap and I didn't know any different. If I needed something "just to have a cert", like ranges etc then that could also be an option.

    Cheers
    Tim

    May seem a daft question, but would SACS even cover me in England?

    Well Andrew, I just had a look, the NGO cover seems to be for public liability only, the BASC cover is far more comprehensive.............scuse pun!:D

    Covers you in the UK, copied from their website!

    Territorial limits

    The Territorial Limits under the policy are The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, The Channel Islands and The Isle of Man.

    For shooting trips to territories outside of the United Kingdom there may be a charge depending on location and risk profile. EU countries are normally free of charge. We must receive details of the shooting trip in advance and no cover is afforded until confirmed by insurers.

    Please note that The Republic of Ireland is not part of the UK. UK members planning to visit ROI for a sporting trip should notify us as per above.
    N.B. members resident in Northern Ireland do not need to notify us for country sports trips to ROI.
