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.

    Well it turns out there is a small outfit called SCR, lovely clean and tidy shop along with friendly staff, they have won my business straight off.

    Only went in for a tin of JSBs but blagged a knock down squirrel as it seemed mean not to. Just had a plink with the knock down and its good fun and as its a shoot to reset I could out it high up in a hard to reach area that adds more range and a little more challenge.

    Good news is I also found SCR are a source of compressed air refills right on my door step and a Daystate expert to boot.

    I know the feeling. I only discovered that there was a Daystate accredited service agent within 6 miles of my front door when he cut his hedge and revealed a sign that read "Cartridges for sale!"

    Very sad for you oldbugger, seems I am quite blessed.

    We have a Daystate dealer in the next town at ten minutes drive, fully stocked with goodies.
    Another Daystate dealer in the city at twenty minutes drive, he has probably hundreds of rifles and a range.
    Genral gunshop in a nearby town at fifteen minutes drive.
    The village farm supplier has small stocks of firearms stuff and a few airgun stuff, CO cartridges etc.
    Two local clubs with indoor ranges at fifteen minutes drive.
    And now SCR whom I had heard praise of on this forum are just down the lane.

    Oh and Daystate themselves are perhaps twenty odd minutes away!

    Yes SCR are quite well hidden, the local council will not let them put a sign up.

    I am blessed that I live 5 minutes from Sheffield dive center. They also sell and service lots air guns and have quality accessories. Might be a bit pricey on clothing tho.
