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. 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.

    SMK CP2 in woodland cammo in .177. I got it on Saturday, went to Yeavely on Sunday and stayed there until closing time, had the whole grounds to our selves for an hour and a half. He was knocking 'em down from his first shot on the FT course. Well impressed with him and the rifle.

    I had an old Crosman as a kid and it was fun, an old pump up .22, I don't remember what model. I got one given to me a few years ago a 2250.... The only problem with them is, once you start changing parts... It's never finished.

    Luckily with the new one, it's pretty sweet to start with, no need to mess with this one. :thumb:

    All the extras are from GMAC custom parts, except the moderated shroud, I made that myself. :cool:

    Oh, the tank is from eBay and the regulator is a ninja paintball reg.

    Been in touch and had a reply. No pre-booking required, just turn up and shoot. However, Chris (the chap who runs the place) did tell me they prefer juniors to shoot PCP's only, but they will make an assessment of youngsters' abilities on the day.

    That one's just a little too far for us, Mike.

    Probably OK from Derby, but add another 35 - 40 minutes drive time for us. ;)

    Mrs TinCan and I took a drive out to Blackbrook this morning. Only 15 minutes drive from house to venue...

    https://www.blackbrookcountrysports.co.uk/

    Very good setup. Nice to meet up with @SlyM1ke and Jason again.:thumb: Sorry we left you on the plinking range while we went hunting FT's in the woods.

    I got a few still images, but these really don't do justice to the venue.

    The sheltered plinking range. Believe it or not, but there's actually central heating radiators underneath the bench, powered by a log burner to the left of the shelter. :)

    BB1.jpg


    There are so many plinking targets here you couldn't hit them all with a full tin of pellets.:eek:

    BB2.jpg


    And the number of FT's is amazing...

    BB3.jpg


    As I said, these images don't do the venue full justice. But, in true TCT style, I do have video footage which will be available soon. :up:



    A nice surprise from @SlyM1ke left underneath my windscreen wiper. A large selection of 14cm targets...

    BB4.jpg

    BB5.jpg

    Thanks, Mike. :thumb:
    You do realise that I'll now have to record some video's of them being shot at. ;)

    Video footage to follow.

    Well, what a nice place.
    The plinking range was alot of fun, Jason got through a couple of hundred pellets and 5 cans of co2. He's really getting the hang of it now.

    IMG_20190317_110859.jpg

    His little rifle has a good PBR for a lot of what he was shooting at, he even had a crack at some of the more distant targets too and was getting to grips with the idea of hold over at the longer shots.


    IMG_20190317_110913.jpg

    I got plenty of good shots in despite the wind and shooting with a .22, particularly enjoyed repeatedly hitting the tricky golf ball at about 35 yards and by the way @TinCan Tony .... It was me that killed your crow. :laff:

    Went for a quick walk around the course to the left of the shed but the wind was picking up and the boy was getting cold so we called it a day after about twenty minutes.

    IMG_20190317_114433.jpg

    All in all, a nice place to visit, a little to far to go more than once a month but will definitely visit again and make a full day of it once the weather picks up.

    Cheers @Tyler durdon :thumb:
    It's a lovely place, well worth a visit.
    Worth bring a thermos flask and some food if you're going to stay for a while, lots of space but few amenities.
