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:


    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.

    Got my daughter settled last night and sat teeter tottering on the edge of "can I be bothered to go shooting", which is a bad sign on a Monday :rolleyes:

    After much deliberation, involving me having a stern word with myself, I got changed, grabbed my gear and jumped into the car. By this time it was knocking on 10pm but one of my shoots is only a mile up the road and I'm only allowed on on a Monday or Thursday evening, so...

    Just before I drove out of the street I decided to double check the gun, which I'd filled the previous afternoon.

    Logun Dominator gauge said 40 instead of 200.


    Quickly tussled with the dive bottle in the back of the car and, two falls and a knockout later, the dive bottle gauge says way over 200 as soon as I open it up :eek: and the gun is hissing from its own gauge area.

    b****r :(

    I already know it would never be over - I never, ever over-fill. If anything I tend to under-fill.

    Ironic, given how much effort I'd put into persuading myself to go shooting, that I switched the car off and unloaded everything, got showered and went to bed instead, and then had to explain to my 6 year old daughter this morning that, no, dad hadn't brought any rabbits home for her tea :rolleyes:

    Fast forward to tonight, I popped up to Mick's place after describing the gun's symptoms to him.

    Gent that he is he identified the issue, fixed it for me (a little solder on the gauge to seal it) and then we tested a NV scope with my T20 with the 66mm IR conversion, discussed pellet performance, generally set the world to rights and planned our next shooting trip, as and when the weather allows.

    Mick suggested that the probable cause was that I'm always shooting and always filling the gun afterwards, so the secret appears to be to not use your kit :rolleyes: ;)

    Many thanks Mick - much appreciated, as always :up:

    Top bloke.
