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.

  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.

    You have to put down everything they have on you. If you don't it possibly shows bad character on your part.
    Like Kyska say's it probably won't affect anything but that's the FLO's decision to make. If he finds out you lied or held back information it won't look good on you.

    Good luck

    Had first visit from feo a month ago to renew my sgc and apply for fac at the same time. Just had him back for a second visit to inspect my new 11 gun cabinet and my ammo store. He said it shouldn't be to long now but he's on leave for a week next week. Just my luck lol more delays :( oh well least I can ask for a .22lr and .17 hmr from Santa :D how did you lads not pull ya hair out waiting. He did say that when it came I can shoot anywhere as long as the land is cleared, so is it an open ticket?

    No that's a closed ticket.
    Closed = the land is inspected by the police up to .xx caliber.
    Open = you decide what land is safe to shoot on yourself no need for it to be inspected and approved.

    If shooting on farm land it normally makes b****r all difference as most is already inspected.
    Well done on the FAC in advance.
    Cheers Andy

    Ah that makes sense cheers for that Andy, I can't see myself shooting anywhere except my own farm, there's enough rabbits to keep me going for a long long while. I can't wait,like a kid at Xmas all over again!

    Andy is right, but if you wanted to fire a bigger cal than rimfire it may not be cleared for it. Can be a right pain. Waiting nearly over, well done.

    You must not withhold information about [FONT=Calibri,Calibri][FONT=Calibri,Calibri]any conviction[/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Calibri,Calibri][FONT=Calibri,Calibri][/FONT][/FONT]. This includes motoring offences, binding overs, formal written warnings, cautions and convictions in and outside Great Britain, and (by virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975) convictions which are spent under the 1974 Act. A conditional discharge and an absolute discharge both count as convictions for this purpose. Details of parking offences and fixed penalty notices do not need to be declared.


    Does fixed penalty notices include speeding offences?
    eg £60 fine plus 3 points as a fixed penalty?

    Thanks ....

    I would put your speeding fine down it won't do you any harm, it shows you take the law seriously and the police will know about it anyway.

    I don't think you need to put it down but if it were me I would put it down just to be sure.
    Cheers Andy

    So I'm looking into FAC... and the one question I cannot find an answer to... crossing county borders.

    I live right near the border between North Yorkshire and County Durham (and coincidentally Cleveland), have 2 perms lined up (farms owned by the same family) that are already FAC vetted. The permission initially is for sub-12 air rifles, however, farmer is happy to upgrade it when the FAC time comes. Challenge is, one of the farms runs over 2 counties and the other is in a different county to the one I live in (albeit Darlington is a unitary authority, however, Durham is my home constabulary)

    Will I need to apply to both Durham and Yorkshire for an FAC?

    OK, so it's basically a national ticket administered by the local force then?

    Yes.
    You apply to the force that administers the area you live in.
    If your permission is outside of that area your local force contacts the force local to the permission regarding the caliber the land is cleared for.
    If the land needs to be checked the force local to your permission do the check and forward that information to your local force.
    You just apply provide the police with permission letters or nominated land forms and let the police sort it out.
    Cheers Andy
