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.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

    Good morning all, my first blog is online for John Rothery Countryman's Blog...

    >> How to seek and secure Shooting Permission <<

    I also recorded a wee video intro >> here <<...

    There's a follow-up to this blog on its way very shortly, then another on a different topic.

    But hopefully our Covid19 movement restrictions will ease further up here in Scotland ASAP, as I haven't seen my Permissions for too long. The rabbits will be ruining the paddocks and I have a new small local ratty Permission now overdue a visit.

    Cheers. Russ

    Thanks very much Brian, I'm hoping it helps folk as it's a subject I've been asked about a few times, e.g. by fellow target shooters at our club GARC.

    Not too bad thanks (and you?) -usual aches and pains (grrr). I'm hoping to get down to the harbour very soon and film some more NV comparison footage. This will initially -be comparing the (handheld of course) Pard008LRF's onboard IR, against add-on IR from both the BlackSun DarkEngine and Ludicrous Lumens Wraith (latter with both 850nm & 940nm heads).
    Then another instalment to follow, trying a torch using both visible light (different colour heads) and 850nm IR. I can't do both together as I'll return the Ludicrous Lumens to Bruce before I get the other one back, he's been measuring that for me.

    Thanks again Brian, you take care too pls.
    Cheers. Russ

    BTW for those in England (I've not yet seen if this is also confirmed for Scotland yet)...

    >> Pest controller Key Worker status confirmed by UK Government << - within limitations, obviously.

    ...i.e. it mentions for protecting food production (e.g. shooting rats around cereal stocks in barns), but sadly probably doesn't (yet) include shooting rabbits in paddocks to protect horses for their out-of-control burrowing.

    Cheers. Russ
