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.

    Great to see Jason enjoying it, Mike. He's a pleasant lad to speak with too. :thumb:

    From what we've seen of him, he really enjoys his shooting.

    You bitch. I wondered who kept knocking that crow down just as I took aim at it. And as for that golf ball, I couldn't hit that for love nor money. But, I did get the swinging yellow plate at 50m. That was bloody hard.

    That FT range was particularly cold and windy (right-to-left side wind). Even me and Mrs TinCan gave up on that one. But, the FT range just up the hill to the right of the shed was great. Got loads of video footage from that one. Even better, we (oh, alright then, she) managed to knock a few of them down. :thumb:

    In a couple of months time, this venue should be heaving. But there are more than enough targets for everyone, I reckon. :thumb:[/QUOTE]

    That plate was a tricky shot, got it a few times but did you see the yellow squirrel up the tree just to the right of it? He was a challenge, every time I got him I'm sure I hit the reset string attached to his arse even though I was going for his head. Could not hit those empty CO2 capsules despite my efforts, I did however spot a white pig with a bell in it at about 30 yards and a kill zone the size of a 5p....dropped that swine a few times.

    I managed the white teapot a few times with 4 mil dots in both directions, but that stainless steel pot to the right eluded me completely. :rolleyes:

    Wish I'd taken more photo's now. :facepalm:

    Got some great video footage of Mrs TinCan shooting my R10 on the FT's.

    If I get the time, it'll be on my YouTube channel by tomorrow night. :thumb:

    Thanks to Chris McVerry for allowing me post the video of his venue. :up:

    It would be foolish of me to compare them in the hope that stating one is better than the other.

    In my opinion, they're both as good as each other. We really enjoyed ourselves last year at Field Sport UK.

    However, Field Sport UK don't have any FT shooting available, which is what Mrs Tincan and I like to shoot at.

    Hitting them is another matter, but we do like shooting at them. ;)

    That's great may be a suggestion to the owners they might have the land to accommodate.
    Glad you enjoyed the day looks like a fab place
