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.

    oh Jimmy you are so foolish,, if only you had hidden the harmless, legal to own and import into the uk co2 bb pistol in a large shipment of charlie, handguns from eastern Europe, and put the whole lot into a 40 container with a whole load of Somalian criminals you wouldn't be in so much trouble.
    you clearly hadn't thought this through had you.:rolleyes::facepalm:

    but seriously, If the border force goons manage to pull this one off it will be the end of problem free and legal importing, without any change to laws or legislation, but simply by a fresh interpretation of existing ones.

    What annoys me the most Jimmo, is these bloody retards at border force don't even know the law ffs.
    It "should" be immediately apparent to them it's not a/s and legal to import, and you can buy them here anyway.......:facepalm:

    If they're there to enforce the law, it helps to actually know it.......

    it’s aggravating to say the least Gary , however in the nearly 20yrs of legitimately importing goods from all over the globe , including as you know for a big part of that airsoft equipment , this is my first “detainment” .

    Second problem with an import from Spain in the last couple of weeks on the forum I think. Mind you think that was a member from Scotland.

    This reminds me of a tale of two us cops who having found a guy dying of multiple stab wounds who remained alive just long enough to inform them it was his woman "who done stabbed me" !!
    The 2 cops then located the apartment number and tentatively knocked on the door,, "open the door police" to which a large woman answered the door covered in blood with a kitchen knife still in her hand,, "did you stab your husband?" they asked, to which she replied,, "that sob deserved it, he cheated on me again"
    one cop distracted her and the other knocked the knife from her grasp and informed her of her rights while they handcuffed her, informing her she was being arrested for murdering her husband and she said, "hell, I stabbed the sob lotsa times,,, he ain't never died before" :facepalm:

    So here's something to think about,,
    you go on ebay and buy something, anything, and it arrives,FROM CHINA" and you unpack it and then you proceed to "pop" the bubble wrap,, releasing the little pockets of air,,,,,,,FROM CHINA".

    if the implication is that I’ve been chancing my luck seeing if I can get away with breaking the law for 20yrs :eek: ,then the answer is no ... the key word was legitimately , just like this time :)

    lol:facepalm: , I believe it’s a compressor that fills the bubble wrap , not a little Chinese guy huffing and puffing :p

    Jimmy, I never meant to imply anything of the sort. I'm sorry you thought of it in that way.

    and where does that compressor draw its air from???o_O

    its all good , I understood the analogy , just not sure which way it was ment , like I’d been getting away with it for years :D , maybe I have , but legally !

    there was a member on here who raised concerns over bubble wrap , I’m sure you could find it if you wanted to , personally speaking I’ve popped so much in my life maybe I’m immune ? Maybe I’m the eye of the storm :eek::D

    In that case you are not alone. I wonder if we'll all go to the same prison. ;)

    Laws are a strange concept,, in as much as with a little bit of careful nondescript wording making them open to whichever interpretation suits at the time, it can be quite easy to condemn those most innocent.

    and the criminals, that which the law was made to bring to book, just ignore them at best, and laugh at their ineffectiveness.

    I happen to possess the following, all perfectly legal.
    an empty wine bottle.
    petrol for my lawnmower.
    a box of rags.

    so with a little bit of waffle the police could get me into a courtroom on possession of Molotov cocktail components.
