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.

    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.

    from what i know, only internal parts will be be regulated, so scopes, silencers and other accessories won't be affected.

    Yeah but it still makes life more difficult for everyone, especially if you don't have a gun shop anywhere near you.

    What's going to happen to chambers then, does this mean we can no longer order parts from them. :confused:

    Looks to me like even if you do have a local shop, they will have you over a barrel (no pun intended) :down:

    Its a stupid law if you ask me, it's not going to affect crime rates in general at all.
    If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have them.
    Any idiot can see this is just a cheap-shot vote-grabbing mechanism that will actually make the crime rate worse. Last time I heard of a shooting it was a cheap imported Ingram Mac 10 machine pistol used, not an air rifle.
    Luckily I have a gun/fishing shop literally a mile away round the corner, but not all of us have that privilege.
    Its possible that more gun shops will open due to a downturn in trade, but to be honest its more likely that many companies will go into liquidation or adapt to survive by selling fishing tackle etc.
    Personally I think it is yet another affront to our liberty. Americans wouldn't stand for this **** so why should we?

    It's probably all tangled in with health and safety, you know, like the 'my baby can't drink from a bottle in case he chokes on it' kinda' thing.

    The world's gone mad - damn, I wish I were back in the 90's.

    Paperbag you were born too late back in the 80's i could walk the streets with an airgun on my sholder no cover and nobody would say a thing, some of my mates used to do the same with shotguns now that was freedom. nowadays i don't tell anyone that i own airgun thats why i joined this forum to talk to like minded people and i fear it's only going to get worse as the years go by.

    Those were the days, me and a few mates used to do the very same thing, walk down to the local woods with uncovered guns and no one would bat an eyelid.
    Now i can't even walk down the road with an hard on without someone thinking i have a gun in my trousers. :bounce:

    Maybe this is a crafty way the government will gradually stop us from using our Gun's taking away the things that we need to help us maintain them.So in the future we will be left with a load of rifles that won't work because we can't get the parts,or am i being paranoid.
