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.

    Ordered some AA Diabolo Field from ebay the other day. When they arrived (through the letter box) There was a loud crash. Wincing at the sound I head towards to the door and there, in a paper parcel envelope was my tin of pellets.

    Well the top lip of the tin was badly bent now and the pellets all cramed up together (being packed so tight) The end result was about 50% of the pellets having damaged skirts. Bloody gutted

    If i order online, i use Sundon Model Shop on Ebay. They send their pellets packaged in a cardboard box, placed in a padded envelope. I've bought Falcon ACC+ from them (which have easily damaged skirts) and have had hardly any damaged ones.

    I had a right go at them (A1tackleshop) for a piece of crap fishing gear they sold me that was firstly radically 'not as described' and secondly arrived damaged which they blamed me for! Despite deciding that because sometime later (years) what I was looking for was on offer by them (pelletts) I decided to give them another try only to discover that now I cannot buy anything from them at all linked to my address. It looked like they had 'blacklisted' me. Obviously their attitude towards customers has not changed since then. Perhaps in time they may change but for now should either do the best thing and get out of the selling trade or have a different manager/owner who does realise that customers are his life blood.
    Damning story......? Maybe, but its the truth.
    As for the Modelshop....or Intershoot...they are brilliant and everything I buy from them arrives promptly and in perfect condition.... no more to be said other than take your custom to them!

    I've used Mr Services Hazlemere (SP?) For pellet test packs and pellets. Just come in a jiffy bag envelope normally sealed well with parcel tape, no issues as yet. Also used cheap air gun pellets co uk.

    Cheers for these guys. Looks like you do get what you pay for! Shaving corners in terms of price seems to be a no no when it comes to our delicate pellets. Email sent! :)
