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.

  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.

    Semi auto

    Hi Y2k, Racking my brains,I don't know of any s/a air rifles amongst the production lines:confuzed:.
    The only one I can think of is the old Saxby&Palmer Sabata, an air cartridge,revolving rifle.
    By now they must be rare as hens teeth.
    If you find another,modern rifle,let us know!:)

    Illegal?

    Hi Rockabilly, How come there's loads of semi auto rimfires etc available to FAC holders but no s/a air rifles.
    Do you know of any websites where the law is broken down to extreme detail so as to clarify reasons why?

    We're living in a ' nanny state ', and it only gets worse from here - make the most of how things are now, because I'm sure that pretty soon even more bans and tweaks in the law will come into place.

    guaranteed. its only a matter of time before all airguns have to be licenced and ammunition will be restricted etc. thats blank firers banned form october and any replicas also. absolutely ridiculous, when are these people going to realise that people that commit gun crime wont be bothered at all by more restrictions on us?

    Criminals who use air weapons are often just put into the category of people who commit ' gun crime ' - when actually an air rifle isn't a fire arm.

    Think about it ... the people who are using air weapons in crime obviously acquired them illegally in the first place, so how will a ban solve anything?

    It ruins it for everyone else - the people like us who are responsible and use air weapons safely. Things are bad enough already with the 12 ft/lb limit - it's ridiculous.

    Rant over ...

    If I had to register myself for a FAC to hold a 12ftlb air rifle then I would, with the benefit of upgrading my exsisting rifles and take up pest control as a service

    Hi all,As far as i know s/a air rifles ALWAYS have been illegal exept for the S&P i mentioned earlier(air cart's now being FAC only).If you have an FAC you can buy s/a firearms.I work for a chap who owns (legally) an 8 shot s/a shotgun (awesome for rats:D). I've always thought any more than 3 was outlawed.
    Is it that an s/a air rifle is more likely to fall into the wrong hands than these guns? I don't see why they should if you are an FAC holder:confused:
