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.

    On the 23rd January this year I signed up to this forum as a proud owner of a brand new Hatsan springer. I'd done my research, read the reviews, browsed the forums, and come from the shop a happy man, knowing that I had just what I needed and I would be all set for the next few years of vermin control and plinking.


    Then I bought a laser.


    Then I started reading the nv forum.


    Then I started reading up on PCPs.


    Tomorrow the perfectly adequate Hatsan that hasn't even fired as many as 60 pellets will be cast aside as an Air Arms S200 appears on the scene, offering itself as the platform for all the DIY nv components that have piled up around me.


    I'm reasonably confident that my wife won't even notice the difference in the guns, such is the lack of interest she's taken in it thus far, but nevertheless I kindly request that you all refrain from posting any pictures of nice guns, or discussing any shiny objects that I don't yet own.


    Thank you.


    ;)

    Ha! Best of bloody British on that score...... unless you've got a really secure gun cabinet with 1 set of keys stashed out of everyone's reach but yours and the other set stashed in your locker at work!

    I took to having more rifle cases than guns and that way it was like the 'guess which cup the ball is under' game, my wife was never much good at that. I have been shooting for a year and i have managed four rifles and five pistols since then and we are still married:D

    Another Glevumite on the board. Welcome - we should ask for our own sub-forum!

    <-- This is the place where I refrained from posting a picture of my HW100S -->

    <-- This is the place where I'm not going to discuss any other objects, shiny or otherwise -->

    Thank you for all the replies. It's comforting to know that I am not alone and having been lured in to this crazy cult I can now relax in to the warm and ample bosom of your sympathy and support!

    Those of you that read my thread "The rats are laughing at me" will be pleased to know they are still laughing at me and no doubt enjoying their daily side order of nutella whilst lazing around in the accommodation I've given them and enjoying plenty of rumpy pumpy and raising their young. Standing at the cashpoint yesterday getting the dosh for the S200 I heard the distinctive flap of pigeon wings and at precisely the same moment something landed on the back of my neck...yup, a yellow and white blob of warm pigeon turd inside the collar of my shirt.

    So, in a scene reminiscent of Bill Murray in the film Caddyshack, I'm getting fully tooled-up and devoting the rest of my life to the removal of vermin at all costs!

    Joined this forum to sell a springer.. That was in September 2012, I now have a Hatsan AT44-10, AA S200-10, Logun S16s and have gone through an HW95, HW97, SMKXS78, Crosman 1007 and a Webley Venom Viper. I have more scopes than guns and more mounts than scopes and still can't stop buying.
