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.

    About a month ago and due to going through a lengthy messy divorce, Finances meant I had to sell my beloved Falcon Prairie. My Girlfriend who I live with now did not want me to sell it because she knew how much joy I got from it and from hunting. But priorities must be right, roof over head first. But even though I knew I was doing the right thing I was gutted. The little Falcon had changed my skill level from good to great. It fitted me perfectly, so to see it go was heatbreaking.

    So I sold it on here to to another forum member Brian from Scotland. If your reading this Brian I hope you and the prairie and as happy as we were together.

    Now I'm a big believer in Karma and even more so now. Last weekend I was talking to my next door neigbours dad Arthur who is an airgun lover like myself. I was telling him about my plight and how I had sold my gun etc. Well this wonderful kind man then said he had a gun for sale. he told me he had a multi shot PCP but he prefers springers so it never got used. He said I want it to go to a good home. he then said and you can pay me in bits over the next few months if it helps.

    A few days later he dropped the gun off while I was at work for me to have a look at. When I got home I was greated in the kitchen by a lovely hard case which is included in the price (dont worry I will reveal the price at the end) I opened it to find a mint condition and I mean MINT RWS LR20 complete with a Nikko Sterling Air King scope. it is beautiful.

    well I took it out hunting the very next day.. it fits like a glove. accurate to a fault. in fact its every bit as good as the Prairie.

    His asking price, and I know he has only put this price on it to help me out, was £280 for the lot.

    I am now looking for ways to thank him other than my obvious gratitude.. maybe get him one of leaky's custom straps as a pressie.. unless anyone has a better idea.

    Not a believer in Karma or such stuff myself but a great read, I'm really pleased for you.

    Best way to repay his splendid generosity would be to go out and use it as much as you can, keeping him informed of how your getting on with it and I'm sure the odd rabbit for the pot wouldn't go amiss :)

    You could offer to take him out hunting with you, that would probably go down well - and let him shoot his own rabbit!

    A nice story mate and I'm glad you're back out in the fields with a gun!

    Having been through a s****y divorce myself many years ago, I'm also a believer in our friend Karma! ;)

    Glad it's coming together for you, Nige. I can recommend Leaky5's slings, Mattw975's moderators and Picklehoffer's MiY shooting rests - I've never used Matty's geat but it's got a very good reputation with forum users. I'd be chuffed with being given any of the above items.
