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.

    +1 I knew my dog as well as anyone could, without breaking some sort of law... And this meant that I was totally aware of his awesome and potentially frightening power; I remember reading about a police lab that went rogue, on autopsy, it was discovered that the dog had a brain tumour, a rare turn of events but real and totally unpredictable.

    I understand what everyone's saying here some very good points put accross well . I think with proper training and socialising a powerful large dog can be an asset to a family , however with the opposite then it's probably a matter of when and not if something terrible happens . I will say however out of all the people I know who have been bitten , chased or otherwise had a bad experience with dogs it's been some of the less expected breeds that were the culprits so it's not always as it seems , just that when a large dog bites it does more damage

    Seriously? I hope you don't ever regret typing these words. You could never know 100% nor should you be prepared to put it to the test ever. Irresponsible to be honest and just like many of the people we have read about or seen in the news. "but I never ever thought my dog could do that, he was 100% reliable and loved kids" Oh yes, loved them enough to eat them.

    My dad had a bitch Rotty as I grew up through my teens to early twenties. Lovely dog she was. Then there was a dog owned by the farmer next door. At 15 stone and with wagon chains for a lead it used to drag him over the moors on a twice daily basis - quite a sight to see. Elsewhere there was another 15 stone dog Rotty, coincidentally also called Zeus and the instructions were, on arriving at their house, not to get out of the car until the owner came to rescue you. A full spectrum of behaviour, much of it is in the upbringing.

    Elsewhere on the subject of dogs being dogs... My dad now runs gun-dog spaniels and they are as much pets as gundogs. Still, turn away for a second and they'll be munching on a hedgehogs head. Those brains must be like sweeties. They're not being malicious, its what dogs do. I daresay, if left alone with a child unable to defend themselves - or particularly where pack behaviour comes into play, then they'd do it again. I don't live in fear, but without choosing to indulge that particular risk with my kids.
