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.

    '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.

    same here.

    they dont need cleaning often so a few minuets of using a oull through is not much bother and is probably more effective because the pellet goes through very fast but the pull through should get rid of anything that shouldnt be there

    if you have been out shooting in the rain or damp weather they are a good thing to have around
    everyone wipes their rifles with an oily cloth, but often forget about the inside of the barrel
    also a good "quick fix" if your getting odd results on the range

    trust me you get far more than you think!
    at quarry last year you had to let it run out the barrel before you could even think of getting a decent shot
    wet hands equal wet pellets equal wet barrel
    it can run in thru the loading tray

    one of the reasons im not taking part this year is because i got sick of having to completly stripping my e type after every comp last year

    oh and compressed air is cold, so on a warm day it condensates inside the barrel as well

    I use em, about every 1000 pellets, put 1 in a m,t tin (pellet tin) put a drop of pellet lube (oil) on it, don't let it expand to much, pop it into the barrel, fire it out, watch where you are aiming it...(it goes off with hell of a bang) then put 2 dry clean-pellets through, to clear out any oil, dirt:up::D

    no thats honestly the "intell" i had been given from a Gun shop keeper.:confused:

    fortunatley i use the pull through so never bought his cleaning pellets so have never had "hands on experience" with cleaning pellets.:eek:

    I was just stating what i had been told by what i thought was someone who knew what he was doing.:rolleyes:

    i would never on purpose give advise that i thought or knew would cause damage, injury or accidental death to someone. (well unless its Cog);)

    seriously though all you get on here is free advise and ideas (you get what you pay for):eek::D
