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.

    Heard a thud today through the letterbox and someone's sent me a smk catalogue and this magazine in which various smk rifles are tested by the guy from airgun tv!!
    [​IMG]

    What made me smile was a article done on the smk B2, now I have absolutely zero gun snobbery and my daughter uses a B2 and loves every moment of it but the guy doing the reviews needs to really say what he thinks from time to time!!!
    I mean really??????

    And this test made me smile a bit......

    It's the music for the videos that gets me - sounds like a Poundshop version of Formula 1 music.

    Indeed - I recall reading the same article, and was flabbergasted.

    A huge dose of healthy scepticism is required, frankly.

    I stopped subscribing to this s#### years ago. I know its going off topic a bit but I was in the shooting department in one of cornwalls biggest private retailers the other day... my partner was in the garden section.... I got bored so wandered off. standing at the counter is I guess a dad and his son wirh his sons mate. all the guns on offer are cheap smk or chinese? most have synthetic stocks. not q decent brand of pellets, scope or anything else for that matter but what erked me was the utter tripe spilling out of the mouth of the guy behind the counter! ans the poor s#ds are lapping it up... the lad wants the "lightest most tactical one because its going to be the most accurate.... im typing this on my phone so forgive me if this post has errors.... cant see a blooming thing and fingers are too fat for the keys

    Same here, you can't trust the reviewing at all, forums are the best place if you know the person who's telling stuff has no agenda

    It never fails to make me laugh, every gun is "fantastic", every scope is "amazing" - what are these people on (apart from commission). But as mole pointed out, the pellet tests take the biscuit. They evangelise about accuracy being everything, then call some truly terrible groups good enough for hunting.
    I guess a mag that told the truth would not generate the advertising revenue to keep it afloat. A sad indictment of the maturity of the airgun market.
