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.

    hey guys ,

    it shouldn't be long now until my classic mini's back on the road and the boot isnt big enough to fit a rifle in so it will have to lie across my back seats . Now i was told that if the police pulled me i could get a good telling off for have the rifle inside the car with me , is this true ? what are the laws on transporting a rifle ?

    cheers

    Just throw a blanket or your jacket over it if you're worried abut passers-by seeing it and calling the police.

    Best thing to do when transporting your gun is make sure its not in public view.Put it in a locked gun bag with a coat or cloth over it to disguise what it is.You have no reason to attract unwanted attention to your car then.

    exactly as len says - its not illegal to transport guns in cars ( had a friend who used to go to his club on the bus. advised by police (( and bus management/owners )) to keep the rifle in a secure gunbag, zipped up, in his possession at all times and with the pellets separate, but with him at all times ), just be discreet and dont give any nosey folk cause for concern.

    I forgot to mention, but I'm sure you already have thought of it, but don't leave it in the car while you nip into the post office etc.

    What about a hard lock case you know the ones that look like a elongated plastic brief case , I cot one on flea bay for 33 quid and you can lock it. The best thing to lay flat and cover with a old duvet or similar...you could try a guitar case other wise ala Al Capone !!!!!!:rolleyes:

    That will do mate .it doesn't even need tobe in a gun bag but its best to cover it up or put it in a gun bag .saves the hassle of getting a pull
