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.

    Hi Peeps. about 8 months ago I bought a Webley Alecto in .22. It was an impulse buy and to be honest I have probably put about 50 pellets through it if that. I put a cheap red dot sight on it that seems to work ok. I paid £225 for it and it just sits in the garage in its box.Seems a real waste not to use but I hate selling things. I use my AA S410 regularly and really enjoy it.I,ve only had it about 6 weeks but put hundreds of pellets through it. Going by amount of use, Should I sell the pistol on to someone who would get some pleasure out of it ?

    If you need or want the money then sell if not then keep it your only going to lose money if you sell and later down the line you just might want to use it. :)

    As already said, if you need the money, sell it, if you don't hang on to it.
    I regreted selling my pistols as they helped to kill a hour or so when the need arouse. Recently restocked with a couple, one of which is a Webley Alecto and don't think I will ever get rid of it.

    Google local clubs and go along and see if that is what you need to get you using it. I haven't regretted one second of having joined a local club and I can use my rifle and pistol so much more freely than at home when I'm worrying about neighbours etc.
    Good luck and don't sell it too quickly.

    I started my obsession (again) with pistols. It was going to be a "one in; one out" deal.

    In the end I've never sold a pistol apart from one I bought for the extras (of which I already owned one), and one I promised to a mate.

    It's the same with the rifles. I wanted A rifle. I now have three. Can I afford it? Nearly. Would I get cash from selling them? Yes. Did I get a sudden urge to go out and lose a couple of bulbs of Co2 tonight at a bunch of cans with the pistols? YES

    So I fuelled up and set up a range with all sorts of things. Great fun. If you don't need the cash, keep a hold of 'em. I've not touched mine for nearly three months but gave a couple of 'em an outing tonight in the afternoon/evening sun. It was great fun!

    After boogering about with rifles (complete with mega phut boxes) for so long, makes me remember how loud the Smith is. Not exactly neighbour friendly...

    If anyone reading has an Umarex mod586 silencer/moderator adapter that they are willing to sell, my buddies next door will probably foot the bill. :D

    That's settled then. I don't need the money so I'll keep it for rainy days etc. Thanks all.
