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.

    Been to my local target range twice with my ten year old son to see if he's going to be interested, and now been told we cant go again unless we pay £100 for a full years membership!!!

    Is this the norm or are there legally binding rules that must be followed to keep old bill happy??
    We're only shooting sub 12 but they do allow the use of rimfire and centre fire as part of membership.
    Are the fees about right ? Don't mind paying the money but i have quite a few friends who want to try shooting out but wont be happy stumping up £100 after a couple of shoots.

    Depends if you have to pay range fees at every visit; if not £100 is a good deal.

    I paid 75 pound for the first year family membership ,then its 3 pound each visit. But membership down to 45 pound year after if you use range shop/loyalty card. I thought 75 pound was a bit steep to be honest but I suppose it keeps the riff raff out lol. Would yours go down after the first year ?

    They only do air rifle twice a week , and one of those is saturday nite which is taken up with beer n stuff;) . Not keen on letting my son loosewith a rimfire just yet so its just once a week! Range fees are 50p :)

    i dont mind the money but dont understand why there isn't a trial period before commiting to a full membership.

    just been to my first Air Rifle Club range ever ..this afternoon..:D..!

    £5 per visit..used the club guns and pellets, and 4 members let me try their guns - one a £1000+ custom job
    and well pleased with the advice i received

    3 visits allowed then join for £50 - Thursday fee is £1 and Sunday is £2

    think that's a fair value ......:up:

    My club has a decent 70 yard outdoor range with undercover seating/tables and a target beam at 50 yards, they don't have guns to loan but it's £12.00 per year and £3.00 per session with no time limit and it's in lovely countryside.
    After reading the prices on here I think I will become more involved in the practical and admin side, I reckon I need to look after what we have here.

    Sounds fair enough if you are going to make use of it. Is there a probationary period before you are accepted as a member?
