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.

    Been looking at the prices of 12x8 sheds to use as working area for my Grip/Stocks after we move house. Bloody hell £600 + :eek: Been using my Home built 8x6 for 2.5 yrs now and think it's time I had something bigger as I have to move one thing to use something else ( Might even keep this one Tidy ! ) :D How the hell can people justify the cost of things nowadays ?

    Google Garden Buildings Direct - I've had 3 or 4 sheds off of them. All decent quality and good service.
    Never had any complaints from any of my customers who had them.

    I've just priced up another job with a 10x6 apex roof shed with double doors in T&G construction - shed was just under £300 all in!

    Worth a look. (and no - I don't work for them! Just used them and found them to be good)

    My grandad built his shed in the garden we think round about 1948 when he died in 1967 it was still there . Dad used to treat it with engine oil cut with paraffin twice a year just as grandad had done. I sold the house in 2011 and the shed was still there and its still there now..so the shed is 66 years old

    Hand built sheds you cannot beat them:D

    sheds are stupid expensive and the cheap 300£ don't look strong enough to last a season.

    i built my workshop, it cost just over 3k but its fully powered up, insulated etc and i can use it all year round,

    was shopping for a 8x8 for surplus storage and was looking at 400£ for what felt like 4 fence panels:down: found a local company that did super heavy duty sheds for motobikes etc with inch cladding, well buit it was just over £600 and ive had it about 5 years and still rock solid

    im sorry but you cannot say a mancave is expensive, i mancave to me is like buying a car....my escape from the missus and kids, my own space, i even had to buy the missus a summerhouse to keep her out the man cave lol

    prices do vary and so does the quality, i looked at some and laughed and walked away, in the end i knew i want 19mm tanalised t&g i wanted 3x2 tanalised bearers and the same for the framework, no one local could so it for under £2400, i priced up timber to do myself and came to something silly like £1800, in the end i got in touch on the bay, some lads from 100 miles away came, delivered, fitted for £1200 .... took me months of shopping around, mind you i knew i wanted a 14x12ft shed as gardens a funny shape so that was the max i could squeeze in.

    mancave left, missus dumping ground right with built in ferret hutchs etc, and nice pathway inbetween for the rest of my junk to hide round the back ;-)

    there is now a gate between sheds, gardens a tad cleaner but still on going, and the way my missus is i think it will always be an ongoing project lol, all the best steve

    This is the biggest of my 3 sheds. It's 20' by 26' so there's plenty of room inside to work on the Landrover and even a short firing range! Internet equipped with it's own phoneline. :)
