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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Nonsense @KeithJ23 !
    I was going to say I can post you some from next week (hopefully) but @jesim1 has kindly jumped in!
    Send me a pm if you need any.
    Remember there are 2 rounds in hand out of 12. Although we will see how long this goes on for if the rounds need reducing from 10.

    Thank you for the offers, I've messaged James

    I'm currently on the 12 week list, but that may change. Once I can get out of here and over to my partners it's all easier. Although getting air in my almost empty cylinder(down to 250 bar) won't happen!

    Looks like springer practice is the way forward! Lol

    Stay safe everyone

    Do zombies die from air rifle pellet shots?

    I won’t be able to put in any further entries as our club is shut and I have no where to shoot at home.

    Sorry bud, there will be more of this, I used to do it at 25yds in the club, but will now be looking at 20yds in the garden outdoors, it's nothing compared to yours, but almost all of us will be affected in some way or another. If you can, try a pistol indoors from room to room, I can shoot through the kitchen/utility and into the garage to get 10m:

    I too feel your pain, I live in a purpose built flat and only just have 6m range from lounge to the dog-leg kink in the hall. I tried my HW97kt shooting at my 14cm pellet catcher and it just blows the $h!t out of it, not to mention having a fuzzy scope sight picture as it has a 6-24 x 50 Hawke scope on it :(

    I’m lucky enough to have 20 mtrs in my garden only because there’s a building site behind my backdrop, when the site is finished common sense says stop shooting in that direction. I’m down to my last puff of air however so next month will be my last (providing I don’t use up my air adjusting the scope). I’ve an SSP pistol, I’ll try that at 20 mtrs for *hits and giggles.

    I'm sorry to hear about those affected by range closure.

    I'm still taking entries as per normal but depending on duration of closure/lockdown and I might look at knocking the total entries down.

    If you can still shoot then get cracking as March round ends 3rd April.

    Personally I'm now sat at Doha airport waiting for the next leg home.
    I'm going to be smashing the targets!

    Here's my March (round 3) entry. February was a complete wash out for me and things ain't been easy this month too. Hey ho. There are bigger problems :)

    Had to improvise a bench. It's a measured 20m to the peg in the first photo. Hope a tree stump is ok.
    Score = 203
