Terms and rules

Welcome to Airgun Nation - A world class airgun forum where Community and Industry can coexist in harmony, exchange information tactfully, and advance the recreation as a whole.

General Rules - In order to keep these forums enjoyable and interesting for everyone, we ask that you follow these simple rules:

  1. Exercise common sense and be considerate towards your fellow users. The diversity of opinion and intelligent civil discourse is encouraged; by the same token: rude, lewd, vulgar, obscene, flaming, baiting, trolling, hateful, threatening, insulting, violent, or slanderous content will not be tolerated. You may challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully.
  2. Any member who threatens anyone on the forum, via private message, email, or social media will be banned immediately without notice.
  3. Self-defense, illegal use, or unsafe operation/handling with an airgun is prohibited.
  4. The sole discussion of firearms or NFA items is not permitted. However, the responsible discussion of the similarities between firearms and airguns will be allowed.
  5. Register using only one username. Multiple accounts may result in denial-of-service.
  6. Use good judgment when choosing usernames and avatars.
  7. Do not post off-topic. Please keep your comments consistent with the subject and purpose of the conversation thread. Deliberate disruption, such as consistent off-topic commentary, will not be tolerated.
  8. Do not post the same topic in more than one forum. Pick the most relevant forum for your post.
  9. Religious discussions are not allowed. This site is not for the discussion of one's faith as we feel that is a private matter best left off the forum.
  10. Political discussions are not allowed. We are in a very divisive political climate so be aware of your words. They can and will be used against you, and the shooting community as a whole.
  11. Publicly protesting the Rules or a Moderators decision are frowned upon and may result in your removal from the site.
  12. You will be responsible for your own communications and the consequences of posting or otherwise transmitting those communications. See Conditions of Use below.
  13. Clandestine advertising is not permitted. It is our policy to only allow our sponsors to have a public voice on AGN. If you are a non-sponsored dealer or manufacturer and you come across something related to your business that is either untrue or against our rules, please use the "Contact us" button at the bottom to discuss addressing it.

*If you see a post that is in violation of any of these rules please use the "Report" button near the bottom of each post to alert the moderators.
