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.

    Does anyone here have their very own gun workshop?. The man I go shooting with has his own gun workshop in his garden shed, & I'm going to make my shed into one.

    I've already got the basics- a Shed, B & D Workbench, Little lockable cupboard inside the shed (store my cleaning products, pellets. etc.), chair...

    All I need now is some tools- I'll use them to service my bike, m.bike & quad, aswell as my guns, so they'll definitely get well used. I'm going to look around for a basic set (ratchet & socket set, spanner set, screwdriver set, box. etc).

    I have a workshop, I repair and service mountain bikes and BMX's in my spare time. But my rifles are virtually maintenance free, so they live in my cupboard, kept under lock and key. I wouldn't keep my rifles in my workshop as it isn't attached to my house.

    I've noticed, about £100 for a ratchet head, & £10 a spanner. Someone at the garage has a contact with snap-on, but they still have to pay full price, & a full box being about £2000 they pay monthly in installments. The name sounds cool though, even though they're a bit out of my price range. I'll go with Draper instead.

    A possible path for me at the moment may be an HGV mechanic, & this is another job highly relying on tools, so if so, I would definitely invest in snap-on tools & pay monthly. Quality must prevail in jobs like this.

    There is more than just the air rifle to consider scopes, mounts, charging gear, styrup pumps, chronographs, targets and lamps and all the other accesories we use also need maintenance

    Sorry, that wasn't meant to appear sarcastic, ansd I hadn't realised the 'capslock' was on :eek:
    Just thought a socket set would be a bit too heavy duty for an airrifle; must admit I hadn't thought about cylinders etc
    Yet again I show my ignorance :doh:

    Don't worry, I already have one. Anyway, I'm thinking of getting a full set from Argos, then putting Snap-On stickers on the box to make me look hardcore :cool:. They'll probably be bad quality so I might go with Draper instead. Maybe get a Snap-On set for christmas :eek:
