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.

    Somewhere in the various & widespread bits of paper that is the British constitution ( yes there is one,just not all written down in one document like the American one )
    It is written British citizens have the right to bear arms for self preservation & the prevention of tyranny,a law that has never been repealed,just gradually eroded by successive acts of parliament as governments award themselves more powers and forget they are there to do the will of the people.

    Unfortunately the Commonwealth of Virginia still made some restrictions to gun ownership and no one did anything.

    It seems that the Big One has been defeated for the time being. A few Dems, with all of the Republicans, agreed to block the "assault weapons" ban and magazine restrictions in committee. And that would have never happened without this rally. So it's all over for now. In fact, it seems the only things of importance that got passed (in a gun hating Legislature) were the universal background checks and red flag laws. The Legislature absolutely realized that they've kicked a hornets nest and are now walking some things right back. So I'd say someone did something...for now. I think when the Legislature gets a universal "will not comply" notice from the county sheriffs and then sees 22000 armed citizens on their door step they've gotta take that seriously. They've gotta think about the quiet, workaday, noncomplaining rural people they continuously ignore in their quest for city freeloaders' votes. Or, at the very least, acknowledge the existence of the rural population for once.

    The biggest problem with democracy (of many inherent problems), IMO, is the tyranny of the majority. An armed, vigorous and motivated minority somewhat counteracts that problem. As we have (so far) seen in Virginia.

    What can one say except it's America and with their 'laissez faire' attitude/aproach where guns and gun ownership is concerned nothing surprises me. But if that's what they want they'll just have to live with the consequences and not be unduly surprised when the next 'nut job' or someone who has become p****d off with life in general and thinks he'll end it all but decides to kill some innocent souls before killing himself or is killed by the "good guy with a gun", a term frequently used by the gun lobby, and almost invariably after they've committed the terrible act whenever these tragic incidents happen which is now literally on an daily basis.
