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.

    Not if buying new or second hand however if they are repairing it then yes they can. The reason being that they have already done the face to face bit.

    No they can . F 2 F only to ensure you are eligible to own one.

    They can be deadly in the wrong hands.

    There's always 2nd hand mods for sale here.
    Apparently 2nd hand units are safe unlike those deadly brand new mods.......

    Depends exactly what you mean by "can be sent". Anything "can" be sent but it may not be allowed under the VCR act. I wouldnt want to be a test case if the CPS came acros the loophole and decided to set an example. The sh* t really would hit the fan if for instance someone was caught using a made up kit for an air rifle on a rimfire.

    A few years ago now across the pond the authorities found the law was being circumvented by the selling of kits resulting in serious jail time

    If they can screw the cap off, it can then be sent as it's now a kit.

    The whole legal thing about silencers is daft. If you have sinister intentions you can use a Coke bottle or a cushion. I'm old enough to remember the humming and hawing of the police firearms officers over a mod for a .22 rimfire, as though your application was for murder rather than shooting rabbits. Not a peep after they were found to prevent hearing loss under H and S rules.
    Just a tiny, stupid part of Jack Straw's legacy. He knew nothing about guns or shooting; the man who once stated .22LR was all that was needed in the UK for gamekeepers, landowners and recreational shooters. :D

    Why would it have to say it, it only has to state what is a silencer.
    Without the end fitted it's not a silencer and only a silencer kit.
    It's how the people making them to order circumvent the VCR.
