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.

    The owner of Airgun Shooting recommended them to me, I see the site is not up to date but some clubs set these sites up & never keep them updated. re:http://www.dunmowrifles.co.uk/

    Finding it really hard to find a place to shoot :-(

    Somewhere to shoot a .22 80

    Hi Steve, I am from Silver End in Essex cm83qs.

    There's not many clubs I know of around here, but I found this place today PETES AIRGUN FARM (ESSEX) - Home going to give Pete a ring tomorrow.

    P.s Do you know of any "little tweaks" to get the 80 shooting any smoother, I read on here they are not so hot@12Ft/lbs & hold dependant. I bought my 80 S/H but it looks almost new & I don't think it has been tampered with. I like my gun it's powerful, well made and can be be very accurate compared to my smokey old Weslake B2, but I find 5 shot+ tight grouping very difficult at 35 yards. I found RWS Super Field & Daystate FT pellets to be the most consistent performers, with H&N Diablo pointed slugs I seem to get a lot of flyers is this normal for pointed pellets or just that my rifle don't like em?

    Pete's Airgun Farm

    Hi, just a quick update on Pete's airgun farm, it has a good 50m shooting range (a little dark though) good facilities, toilets, tea making, heater ect & Pete's a great guy but the hunting is a no no. Pete has put darn rook scarer's in every field & every time you line up a woody in your cross hairs BANG! & off they fly GREAT! Waste of money :down:

    But unless more people join I guess he is faced with little choice. :rolleyes:

    Any thoughts anyone, could we supply ear muffs:D
