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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    It is advisable to get an alarm fitted that warns against leaking propane/butane, carbon monoxide and gases with narcotic effect they are available from many sources. Narcotic gases were used and easily obtainable when I lived in Turkey, many people had their apartments/villas/hotel rooms robbed whilst they where in them only finding out when they awoke with a (non alcohol related) throbbing head the following morning . Normal place of ingress were air vents/air conditioning units and a liquid form placed on a CD that was then slid under a door. It happened to friends of ours so it is better to err on the side of caution.

    The gas through the vents stuff is a bit of an urban myth.

    I hadn't really been thinking hunting. I was thinking mostly or target/plinking. I guess anywhere where they regularly hunt, they don't bother so much with the alternatives.

    I've done more than a few naked blade kata demonstrations myself, though never played the Albert Hall :) I nearly gained a centre parting once, but my partner had the blade with the dull edge. The thing about Kendo kata is that if the aggressor doesn't do it 98+% "for real", it doesn't work. That adds a real piquancy to it. Especially the first time. One really has to build both confidence and trust. It's the responder's job to stop short a blade travelling at around 100mph ... about 1/2" short of the target. You really are trusting your life to someone. As you will deduce, it always worked out OK on the day.

    I loved it, I miss it. :-(

    Hey mate, nowt wrong with Blighty. We’ll probably tour the UK before Europe. Why on Earth not, it’s the most beautiful country on the planet.
    Only problem is the weather...

    Enjoy mate, green with envy! :D

    Yeah, the vents don’t actually lead into the habitation area only to a closed, Venetian blind type array. Although designed to keep bugs, insects and drafts out, they’re air tight, not accessible from the outside and only open when exhausting warm air.

    I’m looking at noxious gas alarms anyway, they’re not expensive!

    Your right on the money Jay.
    Over a decade of living down way South Im far happier here than I ever was there. To paraphrase an old song 'I missed the rain of winter and I thought of home'.

    In at least one EU country anyone who has passed the required exams and has a legal firearm can shoot anywhere except nature reserves or on land where the owner has posted the relevant signs.
    The red and white 20cm squares are the no shooting on this land indicator.
    Signs being coloured as many over 60 cannot read or write.


    I love the urban myth, oh yes, when you can buy the gas in shops and its reported on the TV :facepalm:

    Thanks Mike, gotta do it whilst we’re still able to mate!!!

    Only last night Roz spoke of how much she’d like to hit the continent. head east and just keep going! She’s checked out how much we could rent the house out for (£1600 - £1700 a month) and just go! Christ mate, it’s gone from months to years. No kidding, when she sets her mind to something it gets done!
    I feel a mixture of excitement and mild panic! :laff:

    East, EAST!
    East is China and the Russia.
    Never mind get your foot down and you'll be there in no time at all.

    Eg; high end german cars stolen in Iberia are driven direct to the above countries non stop by relays of drivers at high speeds after the tyres are filled with anti-puncture foam.
    A friend in the GNR told me they reckon these cars are resold within 30hours of them disapearing from their original owner.
