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.

  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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    Thanks for the tip-off from @SlyM1ke of another shooting range well within reach of our home location - only about 15-20 minutes away and we never knew...

    https://blackbrookcountrysports.co.uk/index.php

    I reckon Mrs TinCan and I will be visiting this venue very soon, not only for the plinking and FT's, but, after our experience at Field Sport UK last year, the have-a-go clays are looking very enticing too. ;) :hunting:

    Even better, they're open 7 days a week. :thumb:

    I've heard the ranges are few and far between in your neck of the woods. :(

    We seem to be pretty lucky here in the Midlands.

    Could be another good 'local' shooting ground for us, Mikey. :thumb:

    Mrs TinCan absolutely loves shooting the FT's.

    Just up behind the antiques place on the 60mph, AVERAGE SPEED CAMERA section of the A38. I haven't been, but go past it everytime I head south for work!

    That's the one. Mrs TinCan and I have passed it dozens of times and she's always wanted to take a nosey around the antiques place and also have a look at some of the garden ornaments. Never realised there's been a rifle club there for the last 2 years though.

    The old boy who told me about this place said it was a big ground, I reckon you just turn up and shoot, especially as they have the non members price. Fingers crossed.

    I've been a couple of times, the plinking range has a covered seating area - he was even fitting radiators in it to keep people warm while sitting there. The targets were set out more to ft specs than hft (from what I can work out ft goes out to 55yards max instead of 45yd hft max range).

    It's well set out with access to the shooting areas pretty much next to the car parking area.

    It was last year when I went there last time, I went in the week with a friend and it was pretty quiet - but there's plenty of space. I'd go more but for me to get there I either have to go through Birmingham or a long trip on the motorway to avoid Birmingham (about hour and half/2 hours to get home last time) so I go to furnace mill more often (still 40mins/1 hour journey)

    It looks like a 40 minute drive for me down the A38.

    I like the idea of the outside heating for this time of year. :thumb:

    I've heard of another FT shoot near Swadlincote, just need to get the details off my uncle. He said it's quite layed back and friendly... I'll give him a bell.
