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.

    Hi,

    What is the best way to keep moisture out of a gun safe?

    Was thinking of putting those sachets that you sometimes get in packaging at the bottom of the safe to hopefully draw the moisture out of the guns.

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers

    To be honest I'd make sure they only go away dry and oiled, and if the gun cabinet is prone to moisture, put it somewhere else if at all possible.

    If there's already moisture in the cabinet then the drying out pack that Dunkman linked will solve the issue of any residual stuff that's left after the cabinet's been wiped. The VP90 sachet will keep the guns moisture free wherever water can accumulate (outside of action, down the bore) but it wont dry the cabinet out though.

    I replace my VP90 sachet yearly..... which reminds me - mine runs out next month.

    Those VP90 sachets do nothing to reduce the amount of moisture - they say so themselves: http://www.vp90.com/# They make a point that is it not the same as a silica gel pack, it just releases a protective vapour into your cabinet.

    However, as others have said, these things are not going to hurt, but certainly don't rely on them. If you have a damp problem, move your cabinet, or maybe install some kind of low power heater inside the cabinet?

    If your gun safe is in a damp place ie utility room you could install a dehumidifier, they are amazing things, I have a Ebac one. atb Paul.
