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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    I'm trying to find out what channels (if any) the BBC are broadcasting the Men's and Ladies 10m Air Pistol events on Friday and Saturday. I've gone through all the listings on the BBC website, and search the Virginmedia TV guide, but to no avail.

    They did say last night that there would be live coverage of every event LIVE online. And up to 6 options at once on the red button. I know this doesn't exactly answer your question but hopefully of some help in finding it.

    Thanks, that's good to know. I want to record the events on my Tivo box, but perhaps they'll be on iPlayer after?

    Thanks for the help. I looked at that page but I couldn't tell which channel it's on? Also you've highlighted 10m Men's Air Rifle, not pistol?

    I found what you posted on this page http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/17151954 but unfortunately, it does't list any 10m Air Pistol events.

    Doesn't fit with the Scottish anti airgun bill. Don't want people to realise they might have a justifiable reason. Or am I just too cynical.

    Yes. Also, it seems that British live pistol shooters have been given a special dispensation to train for, and compete in the Commonwealth Games. I wondered how they could do that legally.

    Did the same thing for the Olympics. Just shows what a joke the firearms laws are. No you can't have them but we'll let in any old foreigner with one as long as international sporting money is to be made.

    Yes, imagine how embarrassing it would be to the UK if we couldn't hold any live international pistol shooting events here. I do think that the law needs to be changed to allow our pistol shooters to enjoy and excel at their sport.

    You are not wrong there. Everyone knows this country does well in the shooting disciplines, but no because of an anti gun agenda in both the media and oddly Scotland. Both of the major changes to firearms law have been driven by Scottish MP's, we have the laughable situation where our sportsman can't practice shoot or possess their guns in the UK. Then add in the fact that all the massive sponsorship money is in track and field events and you know where all the coverage of major events is focused. Cycling only gets a look in now because of the Olympic golds that have been won.

    If you want to shoot competitive pistol events for England/Britian... you need to leave the country.

    Thanks Government. I can still practise my anti-western religious teachings though...
