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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Have had my FX Verminator for a few days now, and I am extremely pleased with it, my sort of engineering. :) However, anyone recommend a reasonably priced source, where I can get a good, soft ,fleece lined bag/slip? The 'suitcase' supplied is rather cumbersome, and I prefer to leave the 'Buddy Bottle 'attached. The soft gun bag I have is hardly wide enough at ten inches approximately. Thanks, and Hello to all you fellow enthusiasts. :)

    Try army surplus places, you might be able to pick up a sniper drag case, there a decent size and are reasonably well padded. The issued ones have a sling as well as two shoulder straps, and pockets all up one side. i don't know what the imitation versions are like.

    My friend has just bought a Daystate case, it unfolds into a mat to lie on whilst in the prone position. I haven't had a proper look at it yet, so I can't tell you what sort of size it is.

    Don't leave your gun stored in a gun slip, just use them for transporting your rifle.
    They tend to rust rather quickly if left in a slip.

    Keep it in a hard case at home, or if you don't have the money I've always just left mine stood up against the wall.

    As for gun bags, there are loads of sites that sell them, but make sure you go for one atleast 3 or 4 inches longer than your rifle, otherwise they can be impossible to close.

    Welcome to the forums, regards

    James.

    I've alway kept my gun in it's slip and never had any trouble with rust obviously i don't put it away if the gun was cold when i come in as this can cause condensation on the metal parts i normally wipe it with an oily rag and leave it out of it's slip overnight to dry out. My hw80 spent 15 years in it's slip and looked as good as new when i traded it in for my 410 which has now spent 2 years in the same fleece lined slip no sign of rust yet.

    Has anyone actually witnessed rust as the result of leaving your rifle in a slip? Or are you all just going by what the manuals tell you, because it's a precautionary measure to cover themselves ...

    I just can't see how it happens, it's only fur?

    It's not so bad if the gun is totally dry but if there is any moisture when keeping them in a slip it will rust very quickly.

    The one thing not been mentioned here is Super VP 90. A sachet of this in the gun slip or cabinet will keep things safe for up to a year, but don't what ever you do use silica gel crystals. These are great at soaking up moisture, but they also soak up the moisture your gun needs to keep in it's stock...not good.
    Gun slips do attract moisture, so if you use it to take your gun out hunting, don't just throw it on the ground, zip it up and hang it on a bush or tree. Remember, dew starts to form before sunset and just gets heavier towards dawn, so anything on the ground between these times is gonna get WET !!
