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.

    Hi, I can find my way round the basic's of a computer but when it comes to the more advanced stuff then I'm still a numpty!

    I would like to upload a photo on the forum but I've got no idea how to go about it. We've got a digital camera and I have a iPhone which my son gave me when he upgraded so no problem in taking a photo but, were to go from there?

    Thanks for any help.

    Download the picture from your camera to your computer first then in reply to post click on (more options) then (click download file) the windows explorer option should load, high light the picture file and click open. should be straight forward from there, you may have problems using an iPhone I think they are difficult to load pictures to a windows PC.( I maybe wrong on this).

    you could load the photos on to your PC and if you are using windows open the photo in Windows Photo Viewer by double clicking in it
    To upload a lower resolution photo and have Windows 7, open the Windows Snipping tool
    Select the area of photo you want in the snipping tool
    Select Edit-Copy in the snipping too
    Go to the airgunfurum and right click the mouse and select paint

    Hi, Knocked myself up a gun rest yesterday and just thought I'd show in case anyone is thinking of making one themselves!

    I bought a small sheet of 10mm play and a short length of 90mm x 20mm timber which in total cost £14 but only used about 1/2 the ply, I then finished it off by giving it a coat of Danish oil.

    Hope it's of some interest!

    That looks good. I need a rest for chronoing. No time so was going to buy one but they are overpriced. Since that looks so simple I just might knock one up.
    Not sure I'd go so posh as an oiled finish!

    I think it looks quite fetching as the backdrop for my TX, brings out the colour of the wood quite nicely... :D:up:
