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.

  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'm not made of money so NO, I don't have it. To be honest, for the kind of shooting that I do, I don't need it. Waste of money for me.

    Now are we talking insurance in case something happens whilst you are out on a shoot?

    Or are we talking insurance cover for damage or loss of a gun?

    These are two seperate things and I know (nearly certainly) that BASC insurance DOES NOT cover your guns.

    But I stand to be corrected

    WW :cool:

    Correct, it's purely public liabilty - but Cog, that must be worth £20.00 a year. It's a little like saying I don't have car insurance because I don't do that sort of driving......
    Hands up everyone on here who's never had a ricochet, a bounceback, a flier etc (not you, ., you don't count):)

    The standard insurance doesn't cover your guns you're right, but, both BASC and CPSA are currently working on having separate optional cover for guns. Some home contents policies cover guns against theft and fire damage as long as they are declared, some require a slight addition to the premium if the guns are over £1000 in total, but all require some form of extra security be used to store them.

    Fred,
    The form filling for BASA is less than you'd do for an insurance company, and it costs £20.00. See p.65 of this months Air Gunner:up:

    OK.... Thanks for that,.... It was just that I had read something like £2 or £4 of the £20 went on insurance,..... so thought if I spent a tenner or so on cover, would get a good deal, and an extra £10 to blow on pellets,.........


    (I've just bought a HW100S,.. I aint got much spare cash!!!) :eek::eek:

    You won't get private shooting insurance for anywhere near £20, these people get special deals for relatively large numbers, you won't.
