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.

  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.

    The VCR act seems to have made it impossible for me to sell my airsoft guns, is there any way I can do this?

    I want to sell one of them, my Beretta. I don't know if there's any way to do this, maybe I'm stuck with it unless I throw it away?

    Was'nt it just a case of having to meet face to face when you sell it? or has tony's gang c*cked that up as well.

    Don't know what you can do but found this

    http://www.gun-control-network.org/CO10.htm

    which is about airsoft / bb guns. Apart from that I read somewhere that it's illegal to sell imitation guns more or less full stop.
    Clear as mud isn't it ?

    I'm not old enough to vote, but by the looks of it no-body deserves to be in power.

    Yes they do!
    put me in power and i'd soon sort some of the problems out, thieves would have their hands cut off, murderers would be given to the victims families to do what they want to do with them, any terrorists would be blown up on the mouth of a cannon, rapists will be castrated and then burnt at the stake, Police wouldn't have to do paperwork and I'd stop anyone coming into the coontry, drug dealers would be given an overdose.
    Thats in my first 5 minutes but I reckon most would agree that this country is so screwed up that it needs more severe punishments to deter the criminals.
    Another rant over, geez I'm in a bad mood this afternoon ;):up:

    Human rights ? Our rights have always been interfered with by government and do-gooders, what about cognitions right to sell his airsoft to someone else, they've been violated, we need stricter policing and harsher sentencing for crimes just to make a start, law should be law, not something that can be interpreted differently by judges etc, eg, shoplifters should all have their left hands cut off to start with whether they knicked a mars bar or jewellery, make the law black and white and start bringing back better morals,
    Reckon I'm on the wrong forum,

    Well said andyh, these airsoft laws are just some of many that the government are introducing in order to (and this is how I see it) APPEAR to be doing something about it. They think that if they crack down on "guns" as a word, then gun crime will go down. I find it hard to believe that the government thought this would work, they thought that we're all to stupid to notice what a Censored job they're doing. Instead of reducing gun crime, they're inflicting on innocent people's freedoms :down: boo I say!

    The laws are quite confusing but I think I understand them as far as "it is illegal to sell your airsoft gun to anyone else, regardless of whether they're a skirmisher or not" :down:
