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.

    '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.'

  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.

Question Casual rifle club near south london

    Quick question, I'm going to see my uncle this weekend who has recently lost his wife and has become a recluse.
    He loves shooting and has several air rifles and pistols but has nowhere to shoot apart from a 6 yard space in his house that he uses to shoot into an argos catalogue!

    I'd love to take him shooting on Sunday but am really struggling to find anywhere that will let a non member shoot for a couple of hours.

    Can anyone suggest anywhere we could try that is within a couple of hours of Catford (south east london) as it would do him the world of good?

    Or if anyone has land that we could set paper targets up on that would be equally appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Luke

    Petes is good, but will cost you £20 each for the 1st visit + you need insurance as well. (and be prepared to be there nice and early)

    I don't mind the cost, its more important to get him out of the house to be honest. I've arranged to go to bisley as they were the first to respond, but thanks for the others which are now my backup.

    Have a look at the following link:
    http://www.surreysbra.org/documents_clubfinder
    These are South London/Surrey gun clubs that also shoot air but do not have casual membership. You cannot turn up as an unknown and shoot.
    BUT most have probationary membership (subject to Police checks) and training in various shooting disciplines inc. 10m air target leading to full membership
    I am a committee member of a club so cannot suggest where to go but we are a social crowd and help like minded target shooters of all abilities and the other shooting disciplines may well appeal to your Uncle.

    We went to bisley and had a brilliant time. They were all very welcoming and the facilities were great. He's joining! Shame it is so far away for me, but I'm glad he enjoyed himself.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I may try another the next time I'm down.
