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.

    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.

    Are there any legal eagles on the site that can advise me on whether or not I am legally allowed to take my air rifle (non FAC) on public transport. OK, I hear you say - is he mad?:confused: No, just dependent on a friend to drive me to where I have permission, and there is a bus stop right next to where I have a shoot. It would obviously be unloaded and in a gun bag. If I am allowed it would open up my opportunity to shoot, and with the summer coming I'd rather be shooting and getting a tan than drinking cans of Kestrel in the park with my other mates. If no-one is sure, where would I go to find out? Thanx :)

    when i was a lot younger me and two of my friends walked to the farm to hunt. To do this we had to walk from major roads.
    We got checked a couple of times by police and there was no problem, because the guns were in the bag back.
    Just to be sure go or call your local police station.
    I do not think it will be a problem as long it is in a bag back

    Phone your local firearms, or local police they should have the phone number you want, tell them, what you have said above, there shouldn't be a problem...but its best to be on the safe side...then if a member of the public, gets a little worried, and phones the law...you are in the clear:up:

    Thanks people. Looked at VCR Bill, confused the hell out of me, so I've contacted firearmslicensing@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk on 0845 6060247 and asked for Firearms Licensing Office. Nice lady, she's going to look at the VCR bill and get back to me. I'll let you all know the outcome. :)

    It is against the law to carry fac rated weapons on public transport but shotguns are allowed as long as the usually rules about carrying them in public are followed i'm not sure what the rule is with airguns i've been trying to find out myself for a while now with very little success

    Thanks I've spoken with them and they have said it is ok so long as I have good reason i.e. carry permission letter from the farmer, and to break it down where possible. I tried in Cumbria to get some advice from the police and they never recommended speaking to firearms department they were just a bit vague. At least I know who to ask next time I need the law clarified. It is in the VCR bill apparently under ASBO bit.
