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.

  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.

    I have just returned home after a couple of days away to find my brother in law has "borrowed" one of my guns again and has returned it in a terrible state
    Huge scratch down the barrel and silencer scratched to hell and as usual no air left in it
    I never gave the sod permission to borrow it but he told my wife i had :(
    Worst thing is it is one of the guns i was hoping sell to recoup some of my recent expense and wanted to buy a new scope
    Cant sell it now:(
    Luckily all my keepers are locked away but had no room in the cabinet for this one
    He is now banished from visiting my house and he will be buying this rifle now after the damage he has done to it
    I am furious to say the least :(:(:(
    Rant over

    He has more money than i could dream of having and can afford to buy his own gun
    He spends thousands of pounds on tech he dont need or use new car every 2 years and a new bike last year that has done 50 odd miles and he dont bat an eyelid yet he insists on "borrowing" my gun :(:(

    Not on andy, we get it with tools always someone asking to borrow a ladder,drills etc.

    And never return as they left the yard in perfect working order, so my father bought a lot of cheap tools to borrow out.

    Taking something without asking is a bloody p**s take IMO.

    He probably doesn't even think he's done anything wrong because it's not his hobby!

    Take some of his 'tech' and break it and see how he feels then!

    Knowing how passionate you are about your hobby, you must feel violated!

    If my brother in law did that (I don't have one fortunately) he wouldn't be welcome anymore either!

    I let my son use my guns with my implied permission on our private property, he knows to care for them and to leave home immediately and find the money to repair or replace it if he damages one ;), I have friends in the hobby I would also trust to borrow my guns as they understand the money, effort and passion involved!

    Surely there's a criminal offence in there somewhere....

    What a knob. What rifle is it? Maybe you could sell it on here and make him give you the shortfall caused by the damage.

    No, I wouldn't shop him, but I'd tell him to make a choice between coughing up and getting his collar felt.

    Andy,

    My son just came out with an amusing response....

    Take the iPad, hang it up like a target and take a photo of you pointing the gun at it and then send it to him.

    Cough up or else! :D or....

    Being Yorkshire (tight b&$74rd) I hate to see waste so I hope that there was a canny change over to a non-functioning ipad but other than that there is some humour in wanton destruction!

    Would have been funny were there some fat capacitor in there somewhere - we could have seen lightning... . only knows what rare-earths are in that smoke.

    "Doctor, doctor I just inhaled my ipad ..."
