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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

Wish me luck!

    I sold a Fenman 10+ years ago, for a pittance. Things for me were hard at the time, I bought it on HP brand new. It wasn't long before I was struggling with the instalments. Stoopid teen!
    Any way after lots of digging the last few months I've tracked down the fella who bought it off me. Tomorrow I'll be finding out if he still has it and wants to sell it back to me.
    I'm prepared to pay a lot of money for this particular rifle, as it represents a big part of my past life. If he's sold it on, the hunt will continue.
    Funny how you can get obsessed with a gun, but I need this particular Fenman back in my life.
    I'll let you know what happens tomorrow.
    Fingers crossed.

    There's also a HW77 with my name on it. It was my very first rifle. It now belongs to my uncle. Once I get this Fenman back I'm going after the 77. :)

    I also tracked down my rapid 7 I sold 20 years ago last June and although it wasn't quite the condition I sold it in,I'm chuffed to own it once again. Gives me great pleasure shooting it.

    Hope it all goes well tomorrow as I know what it means.

    Forgot to update this, mainly because not much to update. Went to the fellas house and found out he's on holiday. Some people have no consideration. :(

    I have consideration.

    I considered breaking in and finding the rifle. :D

    Edit. I didn't actually go through with this, incase there's any police watching. ;)

    Good luck with it, mate. I can understand the Theoben being a labour of love!

    Don't think I'd ever find the Ratty that really got me into rifles about 16/17 years ago, but I could do without Crosmanitis at the moment anyways.

    My flatmate sold my Lightning behind my back a decade or so ago as I was moving out (left some stuff there for a couple of weeks), and I've even less compulsion to find out where that is! :D

    I'd really like to track down my mate's Meteor that we used to shoot as youngsters. Spent ages with that thing, probably longer than rifles I've owned personally. It was the first "proper" rifle I'd shot, and as a youngster it was awesome! His Uncle gave it to him at the grand 'ol age of 10 (we were both supervised by an age appropriate adult...), and we were world conquerors with that thing. It was amazing. No tin can was safe!

    I would love my old Centenary Airsporter back to renovate but it would be a massive undertaking as it was cut into three pieces by my dad after I shot a bullying older kid with it when I was 15.

    Probably long gone to the scrap yard.

    This is a very sullen update. :(
    Finally got hold of the fella that had "MY" Fenman. It appears it was just a "old slug gun". So wasn't looked after.
    It's demise came when it was run over by its owner and got dumped in the nearest bin.
    I'll get over it......in time. :(
