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.

    But unfortunately anyone can buy one of these :oops:

    The AT will be there as it's part of a gentlemen's agreement to stop the government forcing even worse restrictions on us, but if it has (like is says in the video) a mechanism to adjust power for pellet weights to optimise the gun, then this should be fine to keep the gun running just under the legal limits without going too low. :thumb:

    Seven prototypes out in the field, is not much to go on reliability of a new reg, when there is 100s or 1000s out on the launch with their owners, will the quote reg fine out of the box. Then there will be a better view of how reliable the reg is. Every AA target rifle I have had has needed an after market reg fitted as they were not good out of the box, visit to ISP sorted the reg problem chuck the AA one and fit one of Shauns. :thumb:

    What rubbish. The Ev2 Reg works fine when set up correctly.
    You can keep the local tractor reg!

    Do Ford test 1000 cars pre launch on the roads, given they may be selling 10000 cars. no.

    The Xti reg is sorted out of the box. In Ft terms, thats pretty unique! Of course there will be some that fail, but its a small %, that happens with all sorts of products.

    If you extend the Hamster all the way down, it would almost touch the floor even with you on your fishing Box !! Hope your well.

    glad to see someone been paying attention !
    8.4g users will be fine, 7.9 also I suspect.

    My fellow 10.3g may need to adjust via RFD. Its work in progress at the minute.

    Why is it rubbish, I can only tell it as it is, every AA target rifle I have had has failed on the reg. Who are you referring to on the local tractor reg ? Whats Ford got to do with anything, we are talking about AA rifles. :rolleyes: Lets hope for your sake, the reg is sorted from out of the box as you will be a happy AA supporter then, but if it fails your left with a paper weight, expensive but a paper weight, as you won't be fitting a good aftermarket reg you, will be trying to set up your crappy reg correctly. :thumb:

    Seven? Your having a laugh, you really think after all the time ,effort and money involved so far, that there isn't a load fitted too other 'things' for the sake of testing and development?

    I do agree,though that Shaun's regs are great

    Im sure I read on one of these threads floating about from site to site that there were 7 prototypes out in the field so no not having a laugh it might even have been Claire herself. :thumb:
    I have had Shauns regs in PT, EVs and FTP all were excellent once the AA were ditched. Be interesting to see one of the regs out of the AA super gun when its out see who's it resembles the closest, as I would imagine they have looked at all their competitors regs to make a good reliable one OUT OF THE BOX. :thumb:
