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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Just found this: http://www.modelguns-worldwide.com/

    The first thing that comes to mind is "I WANT ALL OF THESE!" but I'm wondering, with the VCR act, are they still legal?

    I noticed it's a British site (I think) so that's a start, but could anyone give me a second opinion as to whether I'd be able to buy anything on there?

    Woah there's some awesome guns on there. If they're blank firing guns, I think they should be exempt from a FAC being they don't actually fire a projectile.

    Most of those guns are historical, so you have to take into account re-enactment groups who may want them. There might just be a police registry, so the police know you have them. But obviously, those things look identical to the real thing so someone would be more than capable to commit a crime with one & add realism with the blanks.

    I know they look good, but despite re-enactments & crime, why would anyone want to buy one. The rifles I've looked at are £400+, stupidly expensive for an ornament. You can get a good airgun for that, & why waste it on a gun that doesn't even fire?

    They fire, work and cycle like the real thing, they look real and most of them are built 90%+ the same, I love guns no end so for someone like me it'd be great!

    I like the look of Airsoft, it's like a cheaper & more tactical version of paintball. I saw a video of airsoft in New-Zealand, & it looked awesome. A team was dug-in a trench, with an attacking force coming at them in a forest. It looked about 5 a side, but they all had realistic guns & stuff, like M4s & AK47s.

    I'd love to try it, & I was going to organise an airsoft battle with my friends in my field, but their guns were either broken or they couldn't afford a new one.

    This is it I think:

    Airsoft does look good, I've never played it but I've got a few guns, they're pretty realistic and good fun to shoot at cans and stuff.

    The point is that having a hyper-realistic replica gun would be brilliant for me, not many people would like it but I'd have one! Oh, I forgot to say that I wouldn't spend £400+ on one, I'm looking at the (slightly) cheaper ones like the Uzi or the Sten gun maybe :D

    Can anyone give me a black and white answer as to whether I could get one or not? Would I need some kind of membership to something, if that's the case then I'll not bother.

    Not to sure . I have couple of really cheap airsoft but stopped getting them when the new law came in. To get a replica of an airsoft gun and not a see through one i think you have to be a member of a airsoft club .

    I suppose it makes sense, but then again ... not really. Boo! On the bright side, I did buy 3 airsoft guns before the ban :cool:

    At one time I was prepared to pay up to £150 on a good airsoft gun. I was going to join a proper club & everything, but I must have went off it :confused:. I suppose it's just phases.

    I had my eye on a full-metal & wood AK-74, or 47. I had to want full-metal, a bit of extra realism. Look at those M60's, they can be £1000 :eek:.
