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.

    '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.

    Good news!

    Been meaning to pick one of these up for ages! Colt 1911 by KWC, with some real wood grips that @Wild Bill might recognise...

    IMG_1974.JPG

    I am really impressed with these, the blowback is a powerful thump, but it still shoots pretty nicely, certainly accurate enough for reliable can bashing, and thankfully the sights on this one are point-of-aim, point-of-impact.

    I'm starting to get a bit of a collection...

    Not the best lighting in the world! I need to work on my guntography studio...

    Happily though I've reached the point now that when I come home from the local RFD with another bag, the wife just sighs and walks off... That's good, right?

    You'll have to ask @Wild Bill I'm afraid, I bought them from him a while ago

    I do like the KWC 1911s. I have one albeit in a slightly different party frock and its holding up well, especially in these colder mornings. They do have a nice blow-back and I love the grips you have with it. I prefer wood to the stock plastic supplied with many 1911s. I bought some aftermarket ones from eBay which do the job for mine.

    Regarding the wife, invite her along to the RFD. Mine goes with me and talks the knackers off the staff, even when people are waiting to be served. She’s really into it and I get a swell of pride seeing her click clank and rack various things she’s taken a nose in. She spent more money than I did last time we went and bought a new scope for her rifle. You could see if your wife fancies going a bit Calamity Jane.

    With it being a gun site I feel compelled to add my own gun photo to the reply. It’s the done thing, like apologising when you spill someone’s drink in a pub before they lamp you or making sure the Mrs has her electric blanket turned on 30 minutes before bedtime. I’ve reused this photo a lot lately, but it is after all… the done thing :D

    And an appreciated thing!

    She's not much a fan of shooting, my wife. She'll have a pop with the CP99 now and again but only 1 magazine and she's off inside again. She does bring me tea though when I'm having a plink in the garden.
