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.

Clubs in Berkshire

    As above really. Colleague at work who knows that I'm into airguns has suggested her husband wants to try before committing to the sport, and any purchases. I'd be happy to take him along but whilst I work in Berkshire, I live in Hertfordshire, and shoot in Bedfordshire, so not really an option.

    Can anyone suggest a friendly club. I would have thought as an intro, nothing too specific, so no FT only clubs for instance, just somewhere that does a mix of all disciplines, plus some informal plinking, and where the 'locals' are welcoming enough to a newcomer to lend him their guns and perhaps talk through the whole springer / PCP / .177 / .22 debate. Likely to only be a target / tin chicken shooter rather than hunting though I suspect.

    thanks in advance.

    Depends where about in Berkshire, but there is Newbury club near the M4 A34 junction. Two in Swindon Barbury and Old downs, one in Basingstoke.
    Up at the M40 end of the A34 is North Oxon club.

    He has plenty of choice! :)

    sorry but laines in grately off the 303 open 6 days a week mon - sat 9-2pmish good crown and good fun. and amenities as well as a loo.

    I wouldn't bother with Bstoke there so far up there own arse its unreal. You go Along for a chat and to arrange and induction (its not a gym) and the insist you join or you can't shoot. plus the range fees with no amenities either. I was a member for 5 mins.

    Oh just remembered there is a club out near maidenhead but i don't have details but its supposed to be good. which is Closer to you. were pretty limited in the south I'm afraid HFt etc seems definitely midlands to north. not much in the south.

    Hi scaro,
    West London rangers been around a long time, however we did have some issues with our web site. Why don't you pop along one Sunday would be good to see you.
    All we ask is you let us know when you are coming contact number on the web site. We usually meet about 9.30am in our car park, bring some grub and drink we don't have catering. £5 a visit for non members (if you shoot) costs nothing to visit and have a look round -)

    Funny enough I've been promising myself a visit to you for about two years. I'm J23 of M25 so not too far from me. (Well, not if you spend 4 hours a day on the M25/M4 going to work in Berkshire)!
