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.

  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.

    Been up local livery yard where daughter keeps her pony and noticed the farmer has a huge cattle yard, covered in crows magpies and rats, i mean covered. So i took a punt got chatting and said " so when are you going to let me clear these crows up?" His response was " come up as much as you like there doing my head in". To say im happy is an understatement, it's going to be brilliant i cant wait and it was as simple as that!!!!!! Not sure whether my Barbour jacket helped seal the deal but i'm always dressed like a country bumpkin!!! lol:):):up:

    Nice one - it's great when one falls in your hand like that. :)

    I got one earlier in the year - I said 'do you have problems with rats?', she said 'you got a gun then?'. Problem solved. :D

    Quality. I run into a wood recyclers as part of my job. (I'm a truck driver within the waste industry) The owner has lots of farmland, horse paddocks and property. There are rats within the wood yard and probably the usual suspects throughout the farmland. I just don't know how to broach the subject of letting me loose on his land. Providing of course there isn't already someone doing it for him.

    I've approached two farmers this week. One shoots himself and the other wasn't interested. Just have to keep at it :(

    does take the wind out of your sails that's for sure, been looking for over 12 months, got a couple of maybes who have my details etc but have found a lot of " I'll have to ask the wife... " which seems strange for a farm/small holding.

    Yes i know, thats a good point it won't be a case of wander round and shoot. I'm going to plant myself on top of a straw stack over looking the yard, and then have another look for a different place to mix it up a bit. I'd say to anyone wanting permission if you've already got a foot in the door then just ask. As said before they can only say no. I've a great permission here today and can't wait.

    It's funny how things turn up like that. I have one that will be passed on to me when my friend moves away, and I surprisingly got one, when my friend spoke to the owner of the stables he takes his daughter to. My friends one seems to be crawling with rats, he got 8 the other night while I got .... cold and didn't see a single bloody rat, or rabbit or even woodies :mad:
    All the girls at the stables keep telling me where they see them and I have been baiting the areas, which is being taken but not while I am there. There is one area here I do get a few and that is in the loft area where they keep various horse food. It's great as it's undercover for a start and I found a huge box of Polo mints as well :D
    All though I have not seen to many, I have not been able to go up there for the last week and now it has got a lot colder I am hoping the next few visits start getting busier.
    The main thing is I am really enjoying it and it's nice to go and do something which is different for me anyway. Anyway if I can't shoot the rats at the stables at least I can sharpen up my shooting skills by playing Call of Duty on my Xbox.
    I hope you have fun and enjoy your perm. I purchased insurance from www.gunplan.co.uk it was about £23 well worth having covers you for up to £10million public liability. All the best happy shooting, Ade
