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 get asked a lot to make target card holders that won't dent or break after heavy use and I have made a few in the past but they are always too bulky or heavy to post. Anyway a forum member asked me to make him one and I just kept it simple it was made from a 5mm thick steel plate welded to a base but again although bomb proof it was a bit on the heavy side.

    I had a think about a new design today and came up with this idea it is a 150mm square plate with two spikey legs welded to it. You can use it both ways, either ram it into the ground or drill two 10mm holes in block of wood and use it freestanding.

    The target just clips to the plate with a bulldog clip/pegs or two elastic bands the flat plate is handy aswell because you don't need a certain sized piece of card, anyone will fit.

    I will put some in the sales section in the near future and like all my targets they will be pretty cheap and you know they will be bomb proof :up:

    Problem.with solid plates is sometimes the pellet ran rip the target, rendering it useless.
    One of the ranges i use have these and i find its best to stick your target to a sheet if cardboard first the clip it to the plate.

    I don't seem to get that problem but I suppose the quality of the card makes a difference. If you don't want to use card yellow line marker paint looks nice :up:

    Just stick it in the ground at a slight angle, will also deflect spent pellets downwards.
    Don't worry @hairyarms you can have that r+d for free :up:

    When it was staked into the lawn it didn't sound that loud. It doesn't go Clang!!!!!!!!! anyway but at 5mm the steel is quite thick so that is probably why.

    That's another advantage of the spikes it can be knocked into the ground at an angle. A ball of blutac is good aswell and if you are really nuts you can stick a polo mint to it :confused:.

    That bugs me too with backstops. Best noise is no noise. I tried 6mm neoprene last week. Accuracy meant I punched a hole through it. It couldn't swing so may try strips.
