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.

    '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.

    As title. Again there is to be a grand vintage airgun fayre on SAT 2nd AUGUST at the Melbourne British Legion club. All are welcome entrance is £2 which will be donated to the legion poppy appeal.
    There should be 400 plus vintage airguns, rifles and pistols for sale. Also lots of jumble. "sights pellets etc. ALL BY PRIVATE SELLERS. NO TRADE.
    As previous sales have shown prices are usually excellent for the buyers.
    There will also be a bring and buy table where you can bring your gun from granddads attic and perhaps get a few bob for it.
    If you have any interest in vintage airguns this is the place to be, premises are licenced so you can have a pint and a burger too.
    plenty of free parking as well.

    £2 to be amongst possibly the largest collection of vintage airguns all for sale in the UK ever. That's just got to be bargain of the year.

    BE THERE.

    Agreed. It is "THE PLACE" to be if you have any interest in airguns at all. It beats Bisley into a cocked hat.

    Yep. and at the other end usually a few BSA cadets and meteors, both minty and project guns.
    There is a bring and buy for the public so you just never know what might turn up out of granddads attic.

    Not long to go now.

    87 Derby Road if you need a "house number" for your satnav.

    It's easy to find, limited parking is available at the club, there's an overspill car park across the road and parking at the rear of Budgen's Supermarket car park as well.

    Here's the Google Streetview image, looking South showing the club on the right with the flag flying and Budgen's is the large building centre midground.

    There is a thread on "the other forum" listing some of the items that will be offered for sale > Collectables Section: Collectors-Fayre-airguns-for-sale, direct link not permitted but it is easy to find and will give you a flavour of what's on offer.

    Another very successful event.

    150 people through the door on the day and a very good selection of vintage and classic airguns, pistols, associated paraphenalia, books and magazines for sale. Including:

    -Greeners,
    -a good selection of BSA (LJ patent),
    -Walther, HW and FWB match rifles,
    -Webley Juniors/Seniors,
    -Lincoln Jefferies pistol,
    -Webley service
    -2 BSA Military Patterns, not something you see every day,
    -a BSA gun laying teacher,
    -HW35/80/85's
    -AA springers
    -Some nicely presented early pcp's including a Daystate Competa, and nice LR90 FTR, early AA pcps

    That's just a small selection. If you were there I hope you enjoyed the day, if not try and come along next time.

    The event raised £775 for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.
