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.

    It's been reported as doom and gloom for years :D, and is now in very capable hands, just needs a few more years and should be pretty stable :thumb:

    Excellent mate! A very adaptable and multi use toy. Already I can see a catapult, a rod rest, and a trigger for a spring snare! Great fun to be had with these totally free. :thumb:

    Did your action men have the fixed solid hands , or the gripping ones? I always wanted eagle eyes myself, but never had one. Do you remember "Little Big Man"...?? :thumb:

    They were all painted head ones, at one stage I probably had 150 of them, I think I still have 40-50 of them and the original ones dad bought me, my brother had the flock haired ones
    I also remember having the Man from Uncle attaché case with gun and I’m pretty sure that’s stored somewhere
    Yep spoiled as kids

    I've got one in synthetic if you're interested @2506sendero ....?? It's a pain in the proverbial to me mate. The wife loves it though. It'll be available for collection FOC in about a fortnight. All you've gotta do is remove all the chintzy stuff she hangs on it......and fight her! Help yourself my old mucker, you'll be doing me a favour! :D

    Nice little nest egg to pass down mate. My mate Jed had the action man helicopter once. He wanted to crash in realistic fashion. So his father suggested covering it in blobs of evostick and putting a match to it. It worked a treat! Black poisonous smoke and dripping molten plastic. Followed by a lot of tears and his father out of pocket. True story. :thumb:

    Nice to know. WTF were they on about it on radio 2 today for then? It was either Ken Bruce or Jeremy Vine. It was definitely this morning cos Hammersmith bridge was shut and i caused a bit of bother turning my 18 ton lorry round. (With a huge grin on my face to all them that tutted and threw their eyes in the air in disgust , whilst struggling to negotiate their way around a solitary traffic cone in their fiat 500):D........I love it! Lol!

    The Johnny 7 TV add is great, I saw it a little while back! I also remember having a very high end plastic kit that was a Luger, it had gold plastic bullets and was extremely realistic, must have been about 8-10 at the time.
