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.

    Would you give up hunting for your girlfriend / wife / husband if they were anti hunting and loved all animals and couldn't stand the thought if you hunting them ?

    I am on the fence.

    Would never be with someone who was not accepting of my hobbies and certainly would not get to the marriage stage without knowing this about them. I would not expect her to give up something she enjoyed so as with everything in life its give and take.

    Well... As long as they went veggie and stopped eating force fed 30 day old chickens that had been semi stunned and dunked in boiling water..or fish that suffocated on the deck or nets of a trawler etc etc... Then I may seriously think on it...

    Animal welfare is constantly on my mind while fishing and shooting... Every time I get a partial kill that needs that extra shot I ask myself if I'm ok with this... I am so far... I'm not promising myself I always will be... (I quite like mung beans)

    Absolutely not unless she was called Kate Beckinsale :D ... but on a serious note, I couldn't see it happening as my partner is/would have to be a country girl into all the usual country pursuits.

    A couple of years ago I saw a lingering kill take place which bothered me, I've also nearly hit a couple of moose when driving (I drive 30K km's a year for work), which balances the argument. I consider quite deeply the taking of life, but up to now I can justify it.

    No chance.
    I wouldn't have married her if she was the sort of person who would try to stop me doing something I love.

    Yes I would..I used to shoot a lot of game but slowly got less & less..I've mates who still actively hunt so game if freely available if I want it..that doesn't stop me plugging the odd squirrel though..I've found target shooting is really all I need & luv the Mr's to bits & would respect her wishes if needed.

    Not a chance.

    I've been fishing and hunting since I was a kid and our species is still hard-wired that way.

    I can fully respect and even mostly understand why some people are opposed to it, but I struggle with the hypocrisy that surrounds the whole deal since the same people will happily chew down on the cheapest bottom line foods that are extremely unlikely to have had a free (and presumably happy) life ending in an instant lights out.

    We have the luxury of being selectively moral these days, and for some people it can be very selective indeed...

    It comes down to this:

    for every meal we eat, something died

    Doesn't matter whether you are veggie or not, the same applies, and the one point I keep coming down to is simply this:

    without the vast air miles involved in shipping a constant supply of foods to our local supermarkets, today's popular and currently in vogue dietary habits would be very quickly returned to a more natural state.

    I don't force my take on things on others and, provided they afford me the same courtesy, we can always just agree to disagree.

    The Mrs is a vet nurse, so is very animal friendly, but she's also an ex farmers daughter, so she knows the crack with pests. She know what I do, but we just don't talk about it. She has got me a couple of 'jobs' in the past though though.
