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.

  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.

    Insurance(not necessary but helps),the guns secure,no sliding around and a compressed air sticker on the window,in case you're in an incident and someone tries cutting through your car and hits a 300 bar bottle....
    Don't know about the air fittings but for silencers, the deben whisper,Matt's silencers or a Weihrauch are the best :up:

    Llandrindod Jack the thing I am not sure about is the legal requirements when I bought the gun it was charged I bought pellets and a bottle drove home thinking everything legal about 70 miles, now need to take guns about 5 miles seem to be getting misleading information ?

    Llandod, eh? Right, the best way to do this is to put your rifles in their slips and then in the boot of the car. Leave magazines unloaded and keep pellets in slip pockets if you have them. Get some insurance if you can (BASC, BASA, Countryside Alliance etc) and get written permission to shoot.

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    Got written permission,insurance not a problem, I might be being thick (pedantic) but mags not loaded does this mean not in gun or not with pellets in. Can the guns be transported in the boxes they came in, might be like I am making an issue of this but am struggling to get a bag, case to fit a carbine quickly.

    Pellets out of mag and mag out of rifle. Boxes should be okay, but I'd get a slip ASAP if it were me.

    A car is considered a public place by the law even when it's locked, so any airgun in a car needs to be in a slip or case when the car is in a public place - with the magazine unloaded, even better kept separately & unloaded...

    Whilst it's a good idea to do so there is no legal requirement to have the guns in a case/slip. Out of sight would be best if you don't have a case, and to be honest, I'd keep them out of sight even if they were in a case.

    BASC offer insurance, you might want to try them :)

    Most issues are covered on the Free to Access - BASC Web site

    www.basc.org.uk

    VCR Act states Air Guns must only be transported when going or coming to a legal Shoot
    And Should be covered while in Transit - especially to and from a Vehicle

    You Can buy gun Socks to cover All Air Guns and scopes - Ideal if walking accross public access points / Paths etc.
