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.

    Hello everybody,

    I would just like to remind you all that the Christmas get together at Pete's Airgun Farm will be on Monday 23 December (Early).

    Would everybody that will be attending, please put your name down on this thread.

    Any members requiring an induction can give me their names and I will arrange the induction.

    I intend to run two competitions as follows:

    Entry fee will be £2 per head per competition. Targets will be supplied by me.

    The first will best group with five shots at 50 yards. Best group wins the kitty.

    The second will be ten shots at a bell target at 40 yards, most hits will win the kitty.

    In the event of a draw in either competition, there will be a shoot out to decide the winner.

    We want to be there as early as possible to ensure that we take over the 50 yard range so that we have it to ourselves. I will be there at 0630 hrs.

    If you are attending, I would be very grateful if you would let me know as soon as possible .

    I also have to arrange for a Staff member to conduct the inductions, so please let me know as soon as possible. Inductions are usually done at 1000 hrs but I will arrange to get them done early

    Please make an effort to attend as it is sure to be a really good get together.

    The Postcode for Pete’s Airgun Farm is: On request.

    Thank you all.

    Very best regards.
    Les.

    50 Yard Competition.

    To make the 50 yard competition a bit more interesting, all guns to be zeroed at 35 yards and holdover used for the 50 yard targets.


    Members Requiring Inductions.

    If you are having an induction, then please bring proof of your Liability Insurance.

    @jaisalmere Dave Upton.

    I have deleted the post in chit chat because I have been told that members were not seeing it.

    Regards.

    Will try to negotiate a day pass, but not good timing for me.

    Les, does Pete's still require seeing insurance? Might be worth making sure people know.

    Which one is the 50 meter one - is that the one on the left as you turn into the car park?
    I can't even see where the bell target is on the other 40m range :rolleyes:

    Hi Dave,

    The 50 yard range is the small one next to the outdoor ranges, it is much better lit than the big range and the 40 yard bell targets are easy to see.

    Regards.
    Les.

    I'm looking forward to it. I have only been there once.
    I need to get used to shooting off a bench as have not really done that.
    If I can't hack it I'll bring a dustpan and brush and that will keep me busy if @mikeyhall decides to juggle a tin of pellets ;).

    That should be enough to secure the 50 yard range.

    It certainly will be Andy, as long as everybody arrives early before anybody else gets in there.

    I probably could do 0630 but what's the latest time do you think Les?

    Hi Dave,

    Really, the earlier you can get there the better, don't forget that a lot of people will have time off and may be getting in early. There is only eight tables in this range which we will share so the sooner we get guns on them the more chance we have of filling them with guns. I will bring two as usual and set them up as soon as I get there. Anybody else turning up will then hopefully buzz off to the big range. By having this range to ourselves means that we can do our own thing without disturbing anybody else.

    Best regards,
    Les.

    Les, Andy - good idea to have a word with Pete. I don’t suggest setting guns up on tables and ‘reserving’ spaces as if other people are in there, and having paid their money too, is a tad unfair.

    we were recently on the receiving end of this ‘reserving’ approach and Pete is keen that no reserving takes place.

    if anyone has paid their money they have equal claim to a bench, regardless of what we would prefer :D :D

    I do t think it will be a problem as a few will get there early :D
