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.

  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.

    Come on now, don't get personal. It's a sign of weakness. Debate in a sensible and intelligent manner. :thumb: For the record I haven't been dishonest or devious. It's just not in my moral makeup.:cool:

    1. It is unacceptable in wider society and in law.

    2. Knife has a very narrow range of escalation between less than lethal and lethal. Depends on skill (most do not have) and presence of mind (ditto). Impact weapons and irritant sprays are much more scaleable across that spectrum with lower risk.

    3. Why are we disussing this on an air gun forum?

    4. Why are we discussing this on an air gun forum?

    5. Hypothetical. Spelling.

    6. See 2. You move from waving it about to lethal. Nothing in between.

    I give up. The idea that you guys want, in the middle of Parliamentary debtate on restrictions on “weapons” to show on an open forum that we are all up for carrying knives. Face palm.

    Night, folks. Not coming back to this thread.

    Guy goes nuts with a handgun and suddenly shotguns required a license. Took another 30 years for a handgun ban.

    You make this comment.
    But please explain the connection?
    Are you saying that a person who goes way above and beyond on securing their garden for safe shooting, turning a lockable indoor utility room into a secure rifle store with pellets etc in a lockable cupboard.
    And that person having a totally unblemished non criminal record and a clean driving history.
    Who doesn't carry a knife for self defence but fully understands why other people do to be unfit to keep air rifles?

    Predictive text spelt hypothetical wrong.
    Grammar police steps in.
    A few posts later hypothetical is spelt correctly, but no acknowledgement given?
    Clearly biased.

    There are times when the topic is on track and a debate is being done properly but then the devious mob come up with a new sucker punch move.
    If they stuck to the facts of what is/was said instead of twisting and adding lies it wouldn't go so off track.
    Clearly there are a lot of control freaks about.

    Yep, not 1000% sure, but I think he means something along those lines. You should get angry with him. :coffee::laff: But then again I think he was referring to quite a few people here so I wouldn't get too upset.

    Darryl,

    The man is incapable of reading anything and drawing the correct conclusions or sentiment, he takes the words and rearranges them like a game of scrabble to suit his own pathetic narrative and to create false arguements. He causes arguements on a weekly basis with this tactic, I've seen it before with other members in the past and they have been found to be quite unwell. God help anyone who finds himself facing him on a jury or something, he thinks he's the judge, jury and executioner.

    Can't be reasoned with, might as well give it up and let it argue itself to death.

    I don't consider it unacceptable.
    People being forced to be defenceless and being killed by scum should be unacceptable bit it isn't, it is merely whined about.
    The scum with knives for crime and getting such lenient sentences for their crimes (if any sentence at all)and straight back to reoffending created this situation.
    Everybody has the right to fight for survival.

    The only real option here (assuming running is out of the question) is to try to talk the opponent down.

    I would calmly yet firmly explain that my dad is harder than his dad.

    I must admit that I find it very odd to hear all this stickler to the law pacifist talk from someone aspiring to be wild bill, who's signature suggests he was an outlaw. The wild west seemed defined by violence and protecting yourself though any means. What's that all about?

    I don't get angry or upset.
    I just lose respect for fools.
    Your bunch are saying an opinion overrides physical facts.
    Now that is hilarious

    I did raise this point earlier and of course it was completely swerved (like a lot of more direct questions).

    I'm not being unfriendly Billy, just giving you some home thruths, like you gave me about your perception of my low intellect.

    If you came around here you would be dinner, advise not to arrive uninvited. ;)

    Nice backtracking.
    Your answer let's you down.
    Clearly you can see the point and can't fault it so you detract instead.
    That says a lot.
