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.

    alot of what is produced looks so real if someone ran into the bank waving one about its not easy to tell if is real or not, you have to assume its real.
    £6 when i was a kid, it was a cap gun,solid barrel but if you robbed a bank with it people would have thought it was real.

    we got pinned down by armed response at 15yr old for shooting each other with plastic bb guns in my mates garden, that poor quality that when dropped they cracked, exposing elastic bands.

    Oh aye, but let us not let the facts get in the way of innacurate sensationalist tripe! Most of that lot are perfectly legal Co2 and ordinary air weapons, The Uzi maybe an air soft, and where is the Thompson???

    This story is just another piece of rubbish propaganda put out by the police and the anti gun press, some people wont be happy until all guns of any sort are completely banned, yeah that will stop the criminals from getting hold of them wont it.:rolleyes:

    Sorry for ranting, but this sort of thing gets right up my snot box.

    However, if just one of the weapons is an illegal firearm and they are willing to keep it, or worse use it, then they should have all the legal stuff taken away too as who knows what they would do with them!

    That isn't in question, what is in question is the way this has been reported, completely inaccurately just to grab some attention, what should have been said was that the police raided such and such and found one or two illegal weapons amongst a collection of perfectly legal weapons, but that wouldn't have made page five would it, and quite rightly so.

    Wake up folks, we gun enthusiasts are being systematically and persistently demonised. The level of anti gun paranoia, and public fear is being constantly fed by the anti gun brigade.

    Seems like a bit of a stock photo job to me. Most likely none of the actual guns that were seized in that photo set, perhaps because the real non-stock photos are evidence in an on-going case?

    That just makes it worse in my opinion, I really wish we could get our representative bodies to take a more aggressive stance in supporting the honest and law abiding shooters, of which there are many thousands in this country, also, and again just my opinion, I think we spend too much time just trying to keep our heads down in the hope that we wont be noticed.

    I can remember a time when being a good marksman was considered a worthy and honourable thing to try and achieve, it seems to me that for much of the British population, we just a bunch of weirdos!

    I guess most of the guns could be illegally held firearms depending on the history of the person that owned them.

    We all know how met police try to fool the public with regard to guns and how things are hyped up. Who remembers the Mick Shepherd case and the tv footage of them removing assault weapons from his house even I could see it was air rifles including that dangerous ASI Paratrooper makes a good read. http://www.micksguns.com/mick's story - the facts.htm

    The second from the right at the bottom looks extremely dangerous.

    I think propoganda should be a compulsory lesson In every school, you never realise just how much of it you are subjected to on a day to day basis until you educate yourself about it
