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.

    When you get your airgun do you have to show you have a place to shoot it? I see a lot of people talking about land owner permission, does that mean that most people don't have land to shoot on? Are land owners like nobility? They have owned the land for many years and it is passed on to the next generation. Is there public land to shoot and hunt on. Here a guy could buy 50 acres of undeveloped land for about 20-30thousand.

    You don't need permission to shoot on land to get an airgun that is under 12ftlbs.

    To get an aigun over 12ftlbs you need a license (fac) and to get your fac you need permission to control vermin on some suitable land.
    Land to shoot on is hard to find in some areas we have a lot of shooters and not that much land. Airgunners are in competition with shotgunners and powder rifles users for the same land often.
    Land is very expensive over here no one could really afford to buy a large enough plot just to shoot on.
    Landowners that airgunners shoot for over here are all sorts. From horse riders with a couple of fields to estate owners that own many hundreds of fields. Many farms and estates are passed from one generation to the next.
    Cheers Andy

    Its interesting that people from overseas often see the things going on in our country more clearly than us. Yes mate, 98% of the land and wealth in this country is owned by 3% of the population. That is why we love living here.

    That's why its silly to buy property in this country. You NEVER own it . You just THINK you do.
    If you take a mortgage out then your 3x more silly.

    Can you explain why someone who has paid their mortgage off doesn't own their house?

    I think he is getting at the point that you don't own what's underneath the top few feet and compulsory purchase orders can be imposed against your will. Still the Americans have the same, I think they call it eminent domain.

    Could you do what you want to your property eg
    Decide to just come outside and knock it down
    Decide to just come outside and build some on
    Its now got to a point where you cant fly a flag
    Then what about the hundred year lease bit that some have ...25 yr mortgage x3 times the asking price for 75yrs.Then leave that to the kids who leave 25yrs on it for their kids who get the TIMES UP PAL ! . "Would you like to buy your own house" AGAIN.
    "We could do you a lovely mortgage deal.

    In the UK you may not shoot on any public land, and you may not shoot on any private land without the owner's permission.

    You may shoot on your own land, provided it is done in a safe manner.

    Thanks mate. Very succinct and to the point.
    Sometimes, when a question is asked, people on here ignore it and answer their own personal questions.
