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.

    I have noticed on a few forums that there seems to be quite a marked slow down in second hand sales.
    Not just airguns either,has anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

    it's buyer's market these days

    too many airguns for quite small community

    and the s#it around airgunners in newspapers

    it's hard to involve more people to airgunsport today, much harder than lgbt gets their adepts

    It comes and goes, I find. Whenever I can afford things there's nothing about but when I'm skint I find there are loads of bargains out there that I can't afford!

    hello, yes i think people are spending money wiser or waiting for the right deal or keeping what they have where be air rifles or ???? i also noticed some top prices asked for high end air rifles in RFDs with not much of a P.X value for those wanting to upgrade, i believe if you get a good deal you go back to spend more even if only a tin of pellets/targets/oils/ etc unless of course you spend top dollar and get a life warranty as the case for the essex RFD, but like so many internet purchases save time and money. oh recent news in oxford cat shot with air rifle!!! vets cost £600?? but the police are on the case!!!!!. and hoping a quick one to catch the ****** idiot.

    Yup, I think it's like this everywhere (unless you're loaded and have a 15 property portfolio :rolleyes:).

    Despite the bankers getting their bonuses back and the government blathering on about recovery and growth, the truth is the average man on the street's skint and concentrating on covering rising living costs / saving for the seemingly insurmountable life-long commitment of trying to buy a house. No disposible income left for anything else..

    Yeah, pr*ck should be hung by the knackers until dead :mad:

    problem is we all want something for nothing and being men, generally will and do cut our noses off to spite our face on times! :rolleyes:

    on a personal level I feel I have not had a bargain priced new rifle from an rfd since the vcr act came in.

    but I do feel that the second hand market is strong on here and some other sites gstar, gtrader, free--ads etc.
    I was in blackpool, midweek with my mrs and son for a break and called into BAR, blackpool air rifles. they had a massive selection of second hand rifles available, I was going to buy a lovey meteor for £59. I bought a second hand gun bag in the end, buffalo river tactical case for £25.
    on the flip side I was in Keens guns, closest gun shop to me; about a month ago and they had very little in.
