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.

    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.

    I have just bought a Honda 250cc scooter and plan to travel back n fo my local gun club.
    I know the do’s n don’ts transporting guns. The legality etc
    I’m wondering best way to deal with police if stopped. Obviously good manners will go a long way.
    I have read an old forum posting about bikes n guns.
    But assuming I’m eventually stopped cos plod seen rifle case. I assume from what I have read to not open it up for them but allow them to do it if necessary. Course gun won’t be loaded and pellets be stored under seat etc. Any advice or first hand experience would be welcome.

    My understanding is as long as it's secured in an appropriate case and secured in a proper fashion it should be OK.
    It's something I considered some 30 years ago but due to distance, safety and security I binned it and never gave it another thought.

    Did see something once where the person was arrested because the plod could not open the case so had to go back to the station for the fire arms officer to check

    I'd cover the gun bag or case with a couple of bin bags securely held with a couple of bungy straps, not only will it protect your rifle in the event of a down pour but it'll stop it getting unwanted attention from any scum driving along, it's more that type than the police that I'd be worried about when transporting a rifle by scooter or motorcycle.

    Yes you wouldn't want a car load of scroats getting the idea you might have a shotgun in your bag whilst following you down a dark country road.

    You might consider a rectangular gun case which looks like a rod bag or similar rather than being gun shaped. I have one which has straps to go over both shoulders like a rucksack,so it is heldmore securely than one with a single strap. On the other hand you could buy a Leshiy and put it in your pocket :D

    Wear it.
    'Back in the day' I used to travel to the range with a bunch of pistols and the local police, when asked, said they'd prefer me to wear them in holsters rather then put in panniers.
    They reasoned that if the worst happened and I did come off the firearms would stay with me on my way to hospital and not go with the bike unattended or not disappear under a car or hedge to be found later by someone else. I can understand it was simpler with pistols than it is with a rifle but the reason behind it is still valid.

    I used to get some funny looks at traffic lights when the drivers next to me noticed the pistols sticking out under my jacket.

    A guitar case will do. Strap it on, pretend you are off to a gig.

    Personally I'd prefer a rifle slip like you see in the westerns or Mad Max. But we can't go there. :D

    Here is what I use........;):thumb:

    Well to me, if you can carry a gun around in a public in a gun case, then carrying one whilst on a motorbike/scooter there's no difference. Now balance wise:eek::D

    The guitar case mode of travelling with a gun has always amused me. I've known people mugged for musical instruments (electric guitar and clarinet--London and Liverpool) but never a gun. I'd imagine a musical instrument to be more attractive to the average smack-head, scum-bag for conversion to ca. And airguns, even shotguns, are less attractive to crims these days.

    I've carried a few rifles on my bike in the past when purchased, usually I took my own gun bag and carried it over my shoulder with the muzzle pointing down and never had issues.
