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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Why is selling a gun such a wrench?
    My Lightning has been on the sales section for a while now, no real interest until this week. Now quite a few interested, but I’m finding it difficult to let it go. I know I won’t use it.
    Have any of you had the same problem?

    With gun shops shut across the country, and everyone stuck at home, the used marketplace on here is going to get busy!

    The lightning is a nice rifle but if you’re not going to use it, I’m sure someone on here will over the next few weeks!

    Nope, don’t know what you mean....selling is easy.






    Not really - so much so I’ve been known to buy back previous rifles I’ve sold :D. If my original S410 or R10 came up for sale, I’d buy those back too :facepalm:

    Nope, I've found selling easy, but most of the guns I've sold were not for me once I'd tried them (eg: co2 pistols) or just bad buys, eg: cheap (Gamo) which I'll never buy again... plus, I'm a bit of a Delboy and buy and sell a few bits anyway, not just shooting related. :)

    This is going to be, worse than a recession.
    Also with [Politics are banned - read the Forum Rules] , get ready for it to get worse before , it starts to get better.

    You tipped me over the edge buddy, I'd managed to restrain myself from saying anything up until you commented... :laff:

    I have managed to contain it to just the one emoji though...

    I used to own a Lightning XL and actually enjoyed shooting it. Made me smile for a bit anyway! This was some years ago mind before I bought (and sold:facepalm:) better guns!

    I owned an original when they first came out back in 2000'ish and if I'm being honest it weren't bad, the modern stuff is horrendous though, rifling that looks like it's been applied using a rusty bicycle spoke and blueing that looks like it's been applied using an emulsion brush... :facepalm:

    And that's a good'n... :rolleyes:

    With the current climate springers especially are getting more interest as they are typically cheaper, easier to post, and don't need anything other than pellets - so proper apocalypses plinkers :eek:

    But if your struggling to let a gun go - keep it :thumb: I'm the opposite, I have a great springer but prefer a PCP, I keep a spade handy for the Zombies ;)
