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.

    Hi all

    after reading the post in the forsale section, and being told at the club that it was illegal not to dispay a compessed gas sign on my car when transporting dive bottles I decided to hit google

    whilst BSAC's website is being redeveloped can I direct you to

    http://www.bsac.org/uploads/moved/documents/infosheetpdfs/t10.pdf

    "this legislation applies only to those who
    are at work, not to those carrying gas cylinders in private cars for recreational
    purposes."

    So unless you work as a pest controller or other wise need the bottle there for your business *you do not need one*

    now if your insurance will cover you is another matter but lets put this topic to bed shall we ?

    Common sense, put a sign in when you are traveling with one. I bet it would become law if a fire fighter lost his life attending a burning car with one that blew up.

    however it is not law and I havet heard any stories of FF's getting blown up

    they remind me of baby on board signs... should I remove that when the kid is not in the car so a FF doesnt loose his life looking for a child who is not there ? ( I dont have a baby on board sign)

    I never said it was law, if you don't want to carry one then that's your choice. But don't go telling others not to just because there is no law. I you wish to hide the fact from emergency services you have a potential bomb on board then that's also up to you.

    I am not telling people they they shoudnt have one ( though if you do have one you should remove it when the bottle is not in your car - the legislation does aparently cover that) as

    "carrying cylinders on the highway - and it would not be illegal to do so - but the
    legislation states that the sign should be displayed only while cylinders are actually in
    transit. If there are no cylinders in the car, there should be no sign suggesting that
    there are. Bearing in mind that the signs are usually in the form of a window sticker,
    this could be a problem! Furthermore, permanent display of such a sign might invite
    criminals to break into the car, hoping to find something valuable to steal."

    I was only getting irritated by people claiming that it was the law that you should have one, when there is no legal requirement to have one.

    The signs I have seen are the ones with the sucker attached.

    Just a bit of info regarding the power of compressed air.

    The following cars had a compressed air cylinder in them.

    I never said it was against the law not to have one.....

    In my opinion, anyone who does not display one when driving with compressed gas cylinders in the vehicle is falling foul of COMMON SENSE.

    If my brother (who happens to be a forces firefighter) got injured by an exploding cylinder in a civi car that had no warning sticker on it, i would be absolutely fuming.... As far as im concerened, anyone who cant be bothered to display one is inconsiderate and possibly selfish.

    Andy, thanks for the show of common sense mate!

    Would you have to display one for co2 canisters?
    I use fire extinguishers to fill up my 78, I barely ever transport them but if I did would I need one of these signs?
    Because obviously co2 isn't flammable and (I may be wrong) are kept at lower pressures than O2 bottles.
