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.

    I have used Gunplan, no issues at all (never claimed ) £20 PA
    when the licensing thing reared its head a year or so ago i went with BASC, for no other reason than their proactive on our behalf £54 PA Air Gun member, i have since gone to full membership since getting .22 LR.

    As i now have FAC the licensing issue ( sub 12 ) for me is no longer relevant, but my membership contribution helps other`s fight it

    Why's that mate? I've never claimed so don't know what their customer service is like I just think it's worth 20 squid to have the insurance certificate for applying for permissions or if you get stopped by the Rozzers etc.

    I use BASC.
    As above this does not insure my guns.

    It insures me against 3rd party damage when shooting.
    I shoot for pest control (unpaid) and it offers landowners some assurance that any damage to their property or person is insured against.

    Don’t get me wrong... I’ve never claimed.

    I’ll explain why I went with BASA to start with.. I joined a shooting range and they required shooters insurance, so being a tight ass I went for the cheapest available to jump through the hoop.

    I realised during my BASA membership that they do nothing really for the sport, not fighting for us and are mute at the political level. Land owners don’t know who BASA are either, and if you flash your card they will not recognise you as insured.

    Lastly... they were meant to renew my membership automatically via direct debit. It was me that found that they hadn’t taken the money and I went an entire month uninsured... I wasn’t impressed.

    BASC do everything I want from a provider, and represent us at a very difficult and political time for us air gunners so I’m only to happy to plough my money into them now.

    It’s a learning curve and when I took out the BASA insurance I never really knew who did what, but now I do it’s BASC all the way.

    That’s fair enough matey. At the end of the day we can’t all afford BASC which is why BASA is an option.

    Maybe at renewal time.

    I went over to the BASC stand at a country show a couple of years ago but the dude was a Tweed clad tosspot who showed zero interest in me when I mentioned air rifles. I'm sure he was trying to work out how 'one would fit the cartridges into such a contraption'.

    I realise one n0bhead isn't representative of an entire organisation so I may consider them again at renewal time.

    BASC for me - thankfully never had to call upon their services but they’re very good from what we hear.

    Funnily enough i went to their stand at the Birmingham show last year and wasn’t overly impressed with the response I got from a very similar bloke.
