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.

    I was just having a look through the new SMK catalogue and thought we would share some new bits and pieces.

    First of all i thought we would share with you the new Remington air rifles which will be coming out.

    Couple of talking points - the P15 looking rifle, the stealth looking rifle, and the MASSIVE rrps.

    Coo they won't sell many at those prices.

    Also the Stealth had an air bottle at the back, not at the front, that is more Rapidesque.

    Is the ratter even legal? 12 ft lbs in what looks to be a pistol.

    I'm waiting for a call back to clear a couple of things up. I would imagine it's a misprint in the catalogue and its a 5.5ftlb pistol.

    Also we will be considerably cheaper then the RRPs, but they are still on the higher price of the market.

    I suspect that's an error. If it's not, then SMK are muppets for letting that past proof-reading before going to print

    Introductory prices blacked out? Know a fishing company that has rrp prices up then sells everything at introductory or sale prices all the time.

    Trade prices blacked out, so we don't see the prices rfd gets them for before shafting us. They all look like slightly different versions of the artemis range and a few quid added for the remington name

    Blimey, they look pricey for what I consider a relatively low end manufacturer!

    Am I missing something?

    These are not really Remmingtons though right? It's just a naming rights thing? They will be coming out the same factory in the people's republic as all the Artimis guns do surely?

    Assuming they are going to all be regulated?
    Strong money even at the contryway pricing IMO.

    Is it any wonder people in the retail shooting industry are fed up, when we see responses like these!

    I can assure you Paul and the team dont "shaft" customers on pricing, they are one of the most competitive and have had many a rapped knuckle from others in the trade for giving customers a good price!

    If people can't say something constructive perhaps it is better not to say anything at all!

    I suspect that is more common than people think, especially in the optics trade.

    Never thought of that but the dealers do have to make a living. I don't begrudge businesses that. They do look similar to the artemis range though. More options for us gun lads are good though. Remains to be seen if they sell OK.
