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, just joined up, I am an active member of the nzairgunners.com website.

    Just wondering about UK laws in regards to hunting with anything from airguns and firearms to crossbows etc, how does it all work?

    Also just general shooting with soft air guns etc what laws apply?

    About all I know of your laws is that you cannot own an airgun over 12ft/lbs without a premit. Feel free to post anything you think I may find interesting in regards to your laws, cheers :D

    Hunting with crossbows is illegal.
    Softair guns must now be made from clear plastic, so the police can tell if it's real or not. :D
    You need permission from the land owner to shoot over his land or you would be arrested for armed trespass and could get 5 years in jail. :eek:

    More to follow....:up:

    Welcome to the forums. :)

    Well now, that doesnt make a heck of a lot of sense do they think crossbows are underpowered or something?!

    As for the clear plastic law....... LOL how much does a can of black spray paint cost??? :D

    Last law, well thats kind of common sense really, but I think our cops are a little more lenient!

    the 12ftlbs gun lwas i can justify but when you go beond that power level well here comes the paperwork:rolleyes:

    as long as you have a 12ftlbs air rifle have permition on some land somewhere and only shoot pests you can lead a good hunting life and no one will take a second glance at you;)

    nothing at all:D

    BTW nothing is ultimate, everything can be impoved.
    there are times when .177 fails miserably in many conditions.
    the "ultimate claiber" whatever that is would be the best out of any other caliber in any situation on any given target at any given range and angle and isnt affected my the enviroment:)

    in other words no pellet, bullet or shotgun cartrige is the ultimate caliber;)
