How many of you guys would mind if we changed locations and moved onto Facebook.
It would be a no sales site of air guns, but accessories would be ok.

Did I mention that I'm the only one to have attended EVERY annual meet since we started

Great Question - some initial thoughts - There is an Air Arms Owners Group already, which is actually ran by AirArms them selves, confusion may exist with Owners group and owners club

The ability to sell via private forum is a big thumbs up versus Facebook and over the years I have advertised a few things on here, in the various FB groups despite clear warnings re terms, there will be daily attempts by folk selling or buying rifles often thinly hidden under "might sell what's it worth ?" posts needing admin interjection before Facebook decide the group is outside the T&C's and simply shuts it down

Stock sales may be an issue as Facebook often seem to decide a stock is a full weapon
Facebook change their T&C's on a regular basis so while today a "weapons group with no sales of weapons" is allowed who knows what happens tomorrow ?
Search sucks as there is only the group and no sub categories so we would mix a technical post in with general banter

On the Pro side
Ability for everyone to easily upload Photos and Videos is a big plus
Easier to read on mobile device
I would loose my confusion re news posts and notifications which I have never understood on this version of forum :o
All costs for the providers of this superb site would go to zero, which I can see is attractive

As a 58year old I feel I can ask this :D .. do the older members of this forum use Facebook at all ? FWIW I do, but it is now less and less as the continued invasion of privacy continues to concern me, I really only use it Facebook on a PC now as I can use extensions like FaceBook Purity to filter out all the noise, adverts, promotions etc and Ublock to block all the tracking cookies etc

I don't use facebook and never will so that would be an issue, but then I don't post like I used to so it's whatever is best for the majority.

FB boils my piss at times, but thats usually cos of its down right fake BS (especially in my neighbourhood lol). I dont get on the forum much , so dont think I really deserve a say on what the admin team decide to do, I'll back you guys what ever you decide is best......I'm fine with a FB AAOC page though, who knows it could be the best thing for the club.

I joined a decade ago, I miss the hustle and bustle of the old place. New beginning perhaps..........
