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 all, i currentley have a bratton sound cabinet with lock top.
    its been checked out my firearms officer and im waiting for the certificate to come back.
    i was planning on storing my ammo in the lock top and the firearms officer was happy with this.

    but i have been given another bratton sound 3 gun cabinet from a friend recentley and have mounted this on the wall to store my ammo instead.
    do i need the firearms officer to check this cabinet is ok?

    I would say probably not. Ring them though to let them know and they can decide what to do. It is down to you to take reason able precautions to secure your firearms and ammunition. If you are happy you have done this, you'll be ok

    Are you allowed to buy only a certain amount of ammo or can you buy as much as you can store in the safe?

    It shows on your licence how much ammo you can "possess" for each calibre you have so the onus is on you meaning the RFD can sell you up this amount at any one time.

    I believe it use to be different where some of the onus was on the RDF, if it said on your licence that you could only buy 500 rounds and you bought all 500 yesterday then he couldn't sell you another 500 today unless you could prove that you'd used them all (this is what my RFD tells me anyway).

    i have been granted a 1000 rounds to be bought and stored.

    there is nothing stopping me going to one RFD buying a 1000 and then going to another and buying another 1000.
    if i got caught with 2000 i would get my firearms certificate revoked and possibly face prosecution.

    even if i had 1001 i would face the same penalty.

    Yeah but any reputable dealer probably wouldn't believe you'd used 1000 rounds since your previous purchase that day and would certainly query your request.

    "any reputable dealer probably wouldn't believe you'd used 1000 rounds since your previous purchase "
    I can buy 500 and hold 600, inthe past I have bought 500 one day and returned for another 500 a day later, the RFD holding them untill I need them, that way they are all from the same batch.

    How would one firearms dealer know what you bought from another firearms dealer the day before or even the same day, unless you told them?

    This is akin to the stupid rule that says a shop can't sell you more than 2 paracetamol tablets in one purchase. You can always go next door and buy another batch.

    You obviously don't have an FAC or know how the ammo sales work. All ammo purchases are recorded on your Firearms Certificate.

    The first thing the FLO said to me back in the day was i can't put buy 1000 and have 1000 in my possession on my application. If you have 1 bullet left and then buy 1000 then you are in breach of your fac. I have always had buy 500 and 1000 in possession on mine.
