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.

    Gentlemen....

    Inspired by Mary Shelley and an old box of dead parts….. I give you...

    The Hal-oween Mod


    The dark skies loomed ominously overhead
    Whilst good folk were tucked up in their cosy bed
    A box of old bits laid there on the floor
    To give them a new life, would it be a chore?
    An old bit of this, a scrap bit of that
    What could we give life to.. from this pile of tat?
    And then in a flash an idea came to mind
    He will build a moderator from what he could find
    So he toiled through the day and long into the night
    A vision of completion was there in his sight
    With blood sweat and tears he fashioned and turned
    Until all the parts were assembled, any rest he had spurned
    And as daylight broke he emerged from his shed
    With what he had created from thoughts in his head
    From Alucarbodelrin a moderator it was formed
    Held together by rivets, its beauty was scorned
    Its only purpose in life was to subdue the sound
    Of many a loud rifle, whose report reverberated around
    And so this was made NOT to give you a fright
    But so that you could shoot silent… long into the night….

    Happy Hal…oween…

    Into the night Hal did think of his plight,
    He’s working he’s working, he must get it right.

    He turned it and turned it until he could turn no more,
    He turned off the lathe and it fell to the floor,
    He gave it a kick and it bounced of the door
    He looked at the Mod, but alas it was bent.
    His heart it was pounding, it needed a Stent.
    Let’s make it again, now where is my pen,
    I’ll draw it on paper with more of a taper
    I’ll check the bore and not kick it at the door

    It will be simply the best, better than all the rest
    Better than anyone’s, anyone I’ve ever met

    And so it’ begun, this will fit the gun, I’ll put it to test
    before taking a rest.

    Oh what the hell Hal was heard to yell, I’ve run out of Delrin,
    Oh what a sin, but oh just a minute, there’s some spare in the bin.
    Hal was all happy, he’d found his Delrin, now to
    get that new mod and stuff it all in

    Hal’s happy now, it’s all done and dusted, he won’t tell a soul that the first one was busted.

    Best regards.
    Les.

    Hi Hal,

    That moderator definitely looks the dogs doo dahs, well done mate, I could say that you did it poetic justice.

    Good effort buddy.
    Best regards.

    Absolutely love this @Halinfax , you're a legend tinkerer and poet to boot!
    :tea:

    Love reading your posts, they never fail to make me smile.
    :laff:

    I see that you've been true to Mary, leaving it natural and not painted it green.
    At least it doesn't have bolts in its neck.

    Top marks too to @Redcap 114 , got to love some poetry on a cold, wet & windy day stuck inside.

    Not sad at all Les!
    I'd say that's a pretty productive use if time.
    I might have been up myself if I hadn't been in hospital for a nerve block yesterday. Hopefully I'll be OK for a trip to the range on Saturday.

    All the best
    Jay
