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.

  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.

Airgun Specific Target Clubs vs Mixed use

    I am a 177 rifle shooter relatively new to the sport. I have been to North Oxon HFt club (very welcoming and good atmosphere) and believe that is the discipline I would like to persue. However I would like to be able to shoot more than once a week, and was thinking a target shooting club would be a good option to keep things varied. I can shoot in the garden, but not much space and although i use precautions to ensure safety never feel comfortable spending any decent amount of time shooting.

    Near me are Bicester gun club and Chinnor gun club. My questions really are:
    1. Is it worth sticking to air gun specific clubs, or are mixed use clubs just as welcoming to air gunners as anyone else
    2. Does anyone have any info on either of these two clubs, or a recommendation for other target clubs in the oxfordshire area.
    3. Are any of you members of multiple clubs (I'm not made of money!) or do you stick to one and practise at home.

    Sorry pretty long winded but thanks!

    I know it is a bit of a trek down the M40 until you get to Polish War memorial there is a shooting grounds called AC sporting targets.
    They have a purpose bulit air gun range covered weather proof shooting positions one way goes up to 60yds the opposite position goes up to 25yds. Lots of different targets - spinners, knock over, resets plus places for your own paper targets. Opens 3 days a week - Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10am until 5pm has loos and cafe.
    It is primarily clay pigeon, chap called Paul manages air gun section - very helpful and has lot knowledge. £10 per day. A great place to practice/learn I learnt a lot there.
    Take everything you need pellets/air etc no shop on site. Gets very busy on Saturdays!

    gone up to a tenner now has it.:rolleyes:

    have to agree its a good place for pellet testing and practising your different ranges but beware its standing benched shooting only so if you want to practice your kneelers and standers as per a HFT course you wont be able to here.

    my experience of mixed clubs is powder burners tend to take priority unless there is a dedicated air gun range for full power air guns - most powder burning clubs air sections are only 10mtr pistol / rifle or at best a bit of bench rest.
