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.

    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.

Selling up... (for now?)

    Not been on regularly for a little while, but thought I'd drop in one more time.

    Today I'm posting the last of my lovely air rifles to a chap from these fine forums... I just wasn't getting the use out of them sadly so have let them go. No permissions since my daughter came along (gave one up and we all know how hard it is to get them again). Nosy neighbours ake plinking not worth the hassle with a springer (well, he's more of a complete and utter arse then just nosy - that's a story for another day)... So backyard can-bashing is now done with a catapult 99% of the time.

    We're moving house soon, so I've sold up mainly to help pay for some of the costs there. Maybe in the near future I'll be back... I'd like to one day have something as good as silent so that I can blat away in my garden to my heart's content... but that will be a long way off I think as we'll be saddled with a mortgage soon enough.

    Anyway, thanks for the advice on here over the last few years guys.

    I've had an HW77 V-Mach tuned and lots of help from ex-mod Marco (is he still around? I think he changed his username) which I sold on to another forum member, who sold it on to another forum member and so on (te circle of life!)....
    ...then a Ratcatcher, which was a dog when I bought it sadly (I felt a bit put-out and ripped-off) but again lots of advice from forum members and a free once-over from the awesome mr Bl4de soon had it hitting the bullseye....
    ...then an HW99s - a trusty lightweight springer. Rattly, as springers often are, but good enough for rat bashing in the garden...

    All gone, now.

    Thanks guys! I'll be back one day I hope.

    You don't have to leave just because you don't shoot anymore. Stick around and join in the banter.

    Cheers Dave :D

    We are moving so balls to the neighbour - but he has been a pain in the arse. I don't want to start anything because he's petty enough to go round when it's just my wife and daughter, causing grief.

    I'll be shooting again soon enough I hope :D
