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.

  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.

This weekend, I shall be mostly...

    ... home alone, with a badly sprained ankle, so no hunting :(

    So, since I can't get out and hunt, I will probably hobble around the workshop and fart about with an HW99s cocking linkage or two :rolleyes:

    I also have an HW95 that I recently tuned which is just over the limit, so I need to nibble away at the edges a little a drop it slightly, then get the scope dialled in and thoroughly test it.

    I also need to make a new leather sheath for my little Damascus neck knife:

    [​IMG]

    I can't be hassled with doing a poll - what colour(s) should I go with on the sheath ?

    I am also seriously considering making a Damascus dedicated stalking knife this weekend. Possibly a pair, one with a gralloching blade.

    If I do I will post pictures and possibly give you 'orrible lot the task of picking out handle materials and sheath colour(s).

    I forged up the Damascus a few weeks ago so it's just sitting there waiting on me to get to it.

    So, this weekend, that's mostly what I plan on doing.

    What about you ?

    What will you be mostly doing ?

    :)

    We're tarting up the VW camper ready for the summer. I've fitted "J" bars to the Suzy-woozy bump-jumper and the kayaks are up there waiting to get wet! Our youngest has a sailing lesson on Saturday which I will have to go and help with :)D) and then its gun club on Sunday. Three members want me to fit kits to their guns while I'm there and the mrs has shown a revived interest in the sport, so it looks like I've lost my Prosport!

    Apart from that, just making a new line of short stroking kits..........

    Cyril is an Auotosleeper '86 T25 LHD auto. No rust underneath, or welding! He's just failed his mot on a few bits, nothing major, and were replacing the floor.

    I want an easy to fit, (for anyone!) short stroke kit that fits all the usual suspects. I'm toying with materials and lengths for different models at the moment. But like all my products, I'm after real improvements for the price of a couple of tins of pellets!

    I shall be at Rope Runners making and selling Paracord Bracelets to fund a holiday and getting my crosman 600 ready to flog she's had a neve valve stem so she needs to go. And I will be trying to eat the 4.5 kilos of banana cake I made tonight. We sponsored a banana stand giveaway at an extreme race and had a box of them left so I made cakes they were going a bit soft. I'm sick of bananas.
