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.

  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.

    Anyone from bristol or south glos? I'm keen to do a lot more shooting over the summer as my open university course doesn't resume now until October. If anyone from the area is willing, I'd love to come out to any permissions or land they use and learn as much as I can.

    Or if anyone is a member of an air rifle club I would love to join, or just come along as a guest? The last few clubs I've contacted aren't taking new members, with one quoting a 3-4 year wait. I put my name down but would like to find something in the mean time.

    I'm a fast learner and good listener.

    I do have a small bit of land I can use from time to time (small holding that belongs to my gfs family, but am very restricted because of horses and other live stock. I've been asked to keep the rabbits and magpies down but I'm not a good enough shot yet)

    I go to the Old Downs Pursuits at Cirencester, their website gives dates and location.
    There is a Field Target club called Avon Hawks located somewhere in South Bristol - they don't advertise.
    There is a shooting range out Cheddar way.
    If you are willing to pay the bridge costs, Nelson field Target and Quarry Hunter Field Target are in the Blackwood area.

    If you don't mind a drive, you could give Barbury FT a go, jnc 16 M4. Sundays and Wednesdays, £5 till it's dark. I'm sure there are better, but it's not that far from you.

    I don't mind maybe a half hour - 40 minute drive to a club or perm.

    Looking for some shooting clubs for air rifle in the bristol/south glos/SE Wales area myself. Did you try any of the above, any you recommend?

    I'm tempted to try out "Treetops" near Newport as it seems like the least hassle, just turn up and shoot when I am available.

    I've a HW95K and a BSA Airsporter collecting dust in their cases and nowhere to shoot.

    Not too much into hunting I have shot rabbits, rats and squirrels on a friends permission a fair while ago but I'm squeamish and clueless when it comes to gutting stuff so pointless me going that route, I'm far more a paper punching target spinner.

    Thanks byker. Will see if I can pop over there sometime, bit of a trek but beats not shooting them until I head Basingstoke-way with work.

    If ever you're down that way I've found the the Bisley FTC place while not the easiest place to find, the people there are really helpful and welcoming to visitors. Also a nice set up with a pistol range too.

    Does anyone rate glevum?

    They seem a bit pricey as they appear to do lots of things there so not your typical air rifle range I don't think, but it's about a 35 minute drive from me so considering heading there.
