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.

    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.'

  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 was out shooting the other day and got caught in heavy rain. The stock on my gun seems to absorbed the water and left lots of water mark stains. Anybody know how to remove them.

    Thanks

    Oil and fag ash ? I've personally seen more damage done than good had to repolish loads of table tops when people have tried these old wives tales , one way we do get rid of water marks on furniture if they are the cloudy grey ones is to rub a little methalated spirits over the area light it up and blow it out this 9 out of 10 times works but I'm not suggesting you try this

    .1 the finish on the stock is unknown so may have a negative affect on it
    .2 a gun stock is not a dining table :)
    .3 the last person I made aware of this little trick apparently got fed up of applying small amounts to affected areas and just poured a good old measure and lit that bitch up (complete tit )
    Anyway I feel if banged on a bit of on a tangent so I'll shut up :)

    Its acyually the stocks on my shotguns which both Beretta's a silver pigeon 1 and a Explor A400 light. Both a re less than 12 months old.

    The stocks are grade 1 walnut but are not varnished so I assume they are oiled.

    Does this help?

    Try rubbing a very slight amount of oil onto the patches,not too much as it will darken it.

    Could be oiled or lacquered mate I did a silver pigeon stock for a guy a few months back that he dropped on a dry stone wall that shotgun was laquered so needed to be stripped stained and refinished . I know this post doesn't really help so apologies for that

    No worries Chris glad it work. can be trickier if people try it on dark finishes , extensive use of certain brands of spray polishes cause most of the cup rings etc not all but most
