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.'

  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.

    The only thing we can do is promote good gun safety and be an example to youngsters, there will always be bad eggs it's just unfortunate that they are highlighted and goodresponsible gun owners are not.

    It's wrong, but it might just have been an act of irresponsible careless shooting and not an act of aggression. The fact that they abandoned their guns means they must have been scared. Perhaps not morons but just daft lads, there is a vast difference.

    I'd say there's no difference. IMO even if there's no intent or malice involved, if you're illegally shooting on public land with such disregard / unawareness of safety or the potential consequences of your actions that someone gets shot in the head, you're a f*cking moron.

    To me "moron" implies stupidity rather than malicious intent - the above seems to be the epitome of stupidity tbh :down:

    Whether someone is injured deliberately by a nasty sh*tbag or accidentally by "kids just messing about" the end result is the same - someone gets hurt and another nail is very publicly driven into the coffin of our sport. Bollockings / criminal charges for all involved IMO; regardless of intent.

    It is actually quite simple - put discipline back in the hands of teachers and create true respect. Respect for elders, parents, other people and their property. Teach self reliance and self discipline instead of relying on the State or someone else and absolving personal responsibility. Whether any politician has the courage and backing to do so, is another matter.

    Regardless of intent a sad and potentially damaging incident for any genuine air gun shooters.

    Thankfully the injury was neither fatal nor life changing but given our countries history of knee jerk reactions to firearms related incidents (Hungerford for semi-auto rifles and Dunblane for hand guns) incidents such as these have real potential to impose some serious implications for those engaged in legitimate sports.

    Obviously hope the gent concerned has a speedy recovery and the police take the appropriate action in the circumstances

    It's not on the national new and it's the first ive heard about it and if it haven't been posted up on here I expect it would have just stayed in Plymouth. As for the knee jerk I don't think the air gun community are going to be persecuted over it.

    But if the two lads were to have there trigger fingers removed they may think twice about taking pot shots.

    We had better ban something as a result, I suppose it will either have to be 19 year old men, 21 year old men or men in their 60s. Decisive action
    will stop it happening again!

    Being a ex British Army infantry soldier, trained in the early 80s i always thought selective National Service trained at the hands of NCOs i remember would have a positive effect on the stupids. As in the Judge gives you a option, Jail or Army.

    Theres always an arse or 2 who cant help being total t***s and potentially spoiling things for those of us who are genuine airgunners who respect the rules of the sport and never do anything wrong! They want tieing up so that the old man can get his revenge ! Someone give this old dude a nice accurate full power rifle so he can have a potshot at these idiots!

    Reports of Air Gun Crime - get more publicity when replies are made on Air Gun Forum boards

    It's a Fact of Life - But why give the Anti's more force by replying -

    Have to agree with the above comment, I don't think they were deliberately shooting people, but who knows...... It happens everywhere with everything, people getting shot with firearms, stabbed, run over with cars and the like.
    If someone can figure out how to stop it all then you may be up for a Nobel peace prize, until then I think we will stick with trying to educate folk!!
    It would be great if this kind of thing wasn't published on the forum, the same way that stabbings and other such cases get very little publicity on this forum!!
    While ever there are people there will be idiots!!
