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.

    Yep it did me also,

    And the part with the lad who lost his legs in afganistan when he got on about his dad, glad my old man didn't see me in the same state he had already gone at that point, and Im glad of that at least.

    But I felt for the dad of that little lad it was flippin heart wrenching, as I got a lad myself now and love him to bits, enough to know he wont be getting any sort of gun under my supervision maybe in his teens like I was, and then he will only use it under my supervision.

    Somehow I did not share the same compassion for the mother of that little lad, I cant put my finger on it but to me her tears were not real like the dads were genuine you could see that, but why they let any kid out with a .22 rimfire on his own is anyones guess they only have themselves to blame for that, and she to me had little guilt and was very defensive, that's just my opinion of course.

    How they still had the dam rifle is also a mystery I mean in this country they would probably both be locked up by now for allowing such stupidity and the gun itself would be in police hands.

    Anyway that gun should be banned, a youth rifle that goes off when its tapped is hardly ideal is it?

    Although the narrator did say the little lads gun had been tested and not had the same fault that the one on the tv had,and tbh any trigger can be wound so far that it becomes unstable so it makes me wonder if that rifle was purposely set like a hair trigger just to make for some tv.

    Sorry but i don't believe in accidents, there is always a reason, fault or what ever you want to call it, usually carelessness but accident is just a word used to cover someones mistakes.

    I saw this programme last week and that little 4 year old girl did not enjoy that experience at all. What the hell was her father, an ex soldier thinking? Quite right he should have given her a small bb rifle to begin with not some 44.cal rifle or what ever. And as for a .22 rim fire "YOUTH RIFLE" well that's a real clever marketing term which will surly catch out more philistines. What a tragic story and to think some parents deem it ok to allow a 9 year old boy to go hunting without any kind of adult supervision. Stupidity beyond belief.
