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.

    Whats it like, do they have everything set out for viewing.??

    Mine is terrible, the pellets are all on a shelf at the back of the shop with just a few tins under a glass cabinet for show.
    They must have had at least 10 to 15 variety's of each caliber and only 2 tins of .22 were on display.:rolleyes:
    How the hell do they expect to sell stuff whats not on display.
    The shelf with all the gun cleaning products and oils is also at the back of the shop and someone had left a large piece of cardboard standing in front so not much was on show there either.
    It's a tiny shop but i would have it set out much better than that, don't think i will be ever going again.:mad:
    Time to go further afield me thinks.

    Rant over. :D

    mine has all the rifles on a rack behind the counter with the bottom facing out so you can't tell what rifles they have the pistols are in a cabinet under the counter and the scopes mounts and pellets and knives are in glass display cabinets and they don't stock cases, slips and cleaning products etc

    Depends which one, there are about 3 that are local to me, two are better than the last - Dowlings aren't very good.

    That leaves 2 that I go to, there's Thomas Turner in Reading, and Marsh Tackle in High Wycombe, both are pretty good. They've got the guns on the wall behind the counter, and they've got display cabinets so you can see almost everything they're selling. They're both OK on prices but it used to be cheaper online!

    Marsh Tackle also do re-fills for precharged guns, for free I think :up: unlike a lot of places.

    I've been on their site before Buzz, and I think they're over-priced :down: sorry to say that! They do seem to be a bit cheaper than I remember though which is the good thing.

    Euroguns is my second most local shop, & Mooredges Airguns is my closest. Very small range though at Mooredges, although the service is a lot better. I don't like the fat bloke who serves at Euroguns, he thinks he knows all.

    The shop where i buy nearly everything, has nearly everything that i need, but what it needs doing is bringing his prices down. I have to hassel with anything i buy, so i can match the prices of the rest of the shops.

    No coggy not free, £4 for a 3 litre bottle, at Marsh. I only live 6 or 7 minutes from them so I think I'm lucky to have someone on my doorstep, :up:

    Always looked after me.

    They don't have an online shop so to speak, but they do have an ebay shop.

    Their stock is all kept behind the counter/glass cabinets but thats' because they have all the local idiots in the shop quite regularly.

    Guns International - Large shop. Good displays. Decent staff. Moderate prices.
    Henry Kranks - Big shop. Mainly antiques. Useless staff. Moderate prices.
    Swillington Shooting Supplies - Small airgun section. Mainly shotgun dealers. Badly laid out. Fairly cheap.
    Euroguns - Big shop. Poor staff. Renowned for rediculous high prices. Most locals I know avoid for this reason.

    Certainly got crap staff, but prices are as good as anywhere I've been recently. Always very good with cartridge prices, have a very cheap Compak Sporting every Saturday and their air rifle shooting at £5 a day to non members is real good value for money.
