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.

    I get my pellets, place them in a glass bowl(don't have to be glass my preference ) squirt of fairy liquid and fill with warm water use your hand to gently mix up once I have cleaned I then pour into a plastic civ.

    then repeat the processes with out the fairy liquid.......and use cold water.


    that's the cleaning and rinsing done.....
    I now place on a tea towl and dry with a hair dryer then leave over night to make sure they are completely dry
    then a spray of oil pellet lube ect...

    clean the tin before you put them back in I place paper towl in the bottom of my tin (personal thing)
    hope this helps this it just what I do I am sure there will be some different ideas and ways of doing this but you will find your own way that suits you
    thanks ste

    I use a jet wash to remove any dirt, knock them apart with a hammer using the claw to remove the old nails.

    I use them to make log stores to age firewood for the log burner! ;)

    Anything that splits goes into the log burner.

    The blue ones are owned by GKN, you shouldn't take them as they are owned specifically, although they are the strongest and best made ones they are a bitch to dismantle.

    Yeh same Lol, i always avoid them as they are super heavy to carry around compared to standard ones.

    I find easiest way , is saw off the planks on the bottom going the same way as the top planks. Then rest the pallet top down against something so its off the ground, and simply kick the top planks off.

    Takes a few mins.

    I think I only started washing pellets this year,and im not sure if it makes any difference,but when you see whats left behind after you've washed a tin,makes you think,i do half a tin at a time,i put half a tin in a glass jug with some warm soapy water and stir them round with my fingers,dont go made as you can end up damaging them,then I put them in a sieve and rinse under a cold tap to wash the soapy water off,then lay them out on a big towel to dry over night,then add some napier pellet lube.
