Would members please ensure they use the FAC forum for all technical information and detail that could take an airgun over the UK’s legal (unlicensed) limit.

The FAC forum is reserved for those who have a firearms certificate (in the UK) or who are permitted muzzle energies in excess of 12fpe (rifles) and 6fpe (pistols) in their own countries. Access requires the completion of a questionnaire available from admin@airgunforum.net (when requesting, please remember to include your username).

Erm - that would be so that only those who have a FAC can get relevant advice and tips about FAC matters to which the UK public should have no access.

But then there are those of us who have been granted a FAC in the past, or are looking to get one in the future, who may be very interested in reading and/or participating in such discussions.

But I accept the wishes of the admins & mods. smile.gif

Thanks

I do understand your reasons for limiting access to fac questions , But on saying that its a little harse and demeaning to think most of us are not adult enough to be responsable for useing the fac forum , And not made to feel that fac holders are a elite group above the rest of forum users. There are times you need to know what puts power up to be able to reduce power levels to a legal limit and if people do know they can stay legal to me im reminded of the proabition that did not work also you find out how to make bombs very easilyand i know which i would rather face.Moan over ! ps i do hold a firearms ticket but on princeple will not join that section of this otherwise fantastic forum, thats just my opinion and i am not voiceing for anyone else. yours Gerry

Those who are adult enough and responsible enough wouldn't question the need, it's obvious, it's to stop those that aren't. As for needing information on how to reduce power, I'm pretty sure that question could be answered in open forum.

I agree but i think we need to start with a bit of good old national service to teach some good basic values and install a few morals would not go amiss these days , and i dont meen just for the kids some so called adults could do with a bit of a refresher also.

I'm not quite sure how you come to that conclusion, I can see the need, it's you that can't. But while we're on the subject, I don't go round sending malicious PM's do I.

Yes, he does have a FAC.

He is also the owner of this forum.

Now, you work the rest out yourself.

Yes, I should apoligise for that one, it's something I rarely do.

I didn't intend my original comments to come across as sarcastic. I've found that arguing on a point of rule within a forum, with the forum owner, is at best foolish. I don't think anyone here has better cause than myself to argue against some rulings and if you'd been here a little longer you'd know what I was talking about. I haven't argued, haven't even really aired my views because it doesn't matter, it won't change. What makes the matter even worse is you appear to arguing against it out of pure awkwardness, being as you could easily access the section by answering a few questions relating to your FAC.

As for my wife, right now she's just finished her last chemo, but it's had some quite nasty side effects and she's ill right now waiting for her counts to rise again...which reminds me it's time to get her stuff together and go to visit......but thanks for your good wishes.

If you have a gun running outside of your preferred muzzle energy, just ask for help on the main airgun forum, or the technical forum.
There are plenty of experienced airgunners, tuners, gunsmiths and sometimes manufacturers, who visit the forums. When you ask on the forums, the knowledge base that you're tapping into is enormous.
Many of those people are more than happy to help - by private message, email, phone - occasionally, some people will even drop round your house with tools and a chrono, and take a look for you - the only price being that you give them a cuppa, a few biscuits and say "thank you". awink.gif

I would also suggest that you be careful of the toes that you tread on, since they may be connected to a size 12 boot that might launch you out of the forum and into cyberspace.

Ok Gerry, you have just posted up a load of chat. No useful posts, just whinging. You posted you opinion that's fine, you don't agree that the FAC forum is restricted...... That isn't going to change anything. It is restricted for good and very obvious reason and it is going to stay that way.

You can stop bad nothing good and respected member of this forum right away. Fluffy in particular is a fountain of knowledge and has contributed far more to this forum than you are ever likely to do.

So here is my advise to you, stop puffing up your chest and getting flustered, you already have given me more than enough reason to ban you as you have openly stated that this is your second account which is clearly stated in our rules as not allowed. So settle down, post some useful constructive post, or feel free to leave and don't come back or keep pushing people and get banned the choice is yours.

Hugh

My earlier comment was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the fact that you made a poke a Dave L, which is unwise, given that he's in charge round here.
If you went to work and insulted your boss, you would expect to get into trouble for it.
If you come on here and start insulting the owner (such as your 17:22 post yesterday, which was only a mild insult) (which I referred to as "stepping on his toes"), then you can expect him to take a dislike to you and if you persist with your behavior and attitude you might end up being deleted ("connected to the size 12 boot").

Just be grateful that someone foots the bill and takes care of all the IT and admin stuff for a forum such as this.

If you don't like the way any of the current forums work, you could start one of your own.
