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.

    I tried a benchrest target lastnight for the first time..
    Come on, 25m isnt far is it and I can group 10 pellets inside a 20p at 35yd.
    So why is it so hard to hit each bull on that target :eek:

    It was a lesson on just how accurate I thought I was, great bit of fun to and addictive as Im planning my next attempt allready

    Thanks Phil for the targets and its your fault Im off on a BR tangent :D:D

    Its simple Tim
    25yd and 25 bulls, just shoot'em

    I did it front rested only and it was with the tx's, so off hand. I will try the 'Runt' asap but too take the bull 'out' is actually harder than I ever thought

    When your going Petes let me know and Ill bring a target sheet for you..

    Mikey, I think that has a lot to do with it, have you shot BR

    A lot of people think that benchrest is easy, until they try it.

    If it wasn't easy why would people use a bench rest, but I accept that taking aim when your first shots have destroyed centre of target can be tricky.

    Everything is easy....until you try it yourself! I know I couldn't do it. Just looking through the scope I can see me wobbling all over the place sometimes.

    No difference with either as the .177 holes get scored with a .22 plug

    A shooting discipline where rifles are shot from a solid front rest. Precision target shooting

    Its really addictive and unimaginably difficult. I've been using my FWB 300s (A rifle that will put pellet on pellet on the outdoor range) and knocking those bulls out at 20m is unreal.
    Leaving the 300s at home tonight and taking the daystate. I'll see how I get on with that.
    I even knocked this up. What next ? SAM_3080.JPG

    Come on Rob, let me in on it. What is it apart from your carjack and a triangle to warn oncoming motorists.
