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.

Membership and insurance all sorted so free to be unleashed on the course. I was shooting a hunting recurve, unsighted, and Rich had a nice little compound kit. Couldn’t have got a better morning and we only shot half of the 40 target course as he had to be home by 1pm. Though half the course is 20 targets we probably shot around 100 arrows each. Practising from the different peg positions. Basically in a competition you shoot from the red peg first, if it’s a miss then one from the white peg, if a miss again a last arrow from the blue peg. We had at least 3 on each target. Took a few pics and sorry if they’re not too good, we were too busy laughing like little kids enjoying ourselves. Some of the targets are fantastic. The crocodile followed by a whitetail is brilliant. You basically get one shot at the croc, if you hit it you get one at the whitetail, croc around 30 yd’s or so, whitetail is long around 60yds or so. It’s called predator and prey, so if you miss the croc, the idea is it eats the deer so you can’t shoot it! Kill the croc and you get a chance to kill the deer. It’s awesome! Even has a flying target but that’s on the second half of the course and will get some pics next time, I’m going again tomorrow or Sunday.

    Brilliant fun, good to see you doing it old school :D, was going make some arrows over the next couple of weeks and get back out there but unfortunately I have completely fragged my rotator cuff so it looks like surgery for me.

    That is the best way to enjoy archery, IMO, wandering around different stands never knowing the distance makes for great fun. I hope you really enjoy it.

    Hello mate, how were the hols? This 3D is brilliant, we’re back up again in the morning, 7.30 start. Doing the full course and hoping to finish before it gets too hot. Looking forward to the memorial shoot too. Should be a good day.

    That’s a shame mate, I’m loving the 3D, and love doing it with the recurve, really fancy a nice wooden trad bow now though! This course is great, so many different shots at different angles and targets. The last one, a flying fox is awesome! Can’t wait to get up there in the morning and shoot the whole course.

    You want to consider these guys http://www.falco.ee/products/falco_longbows , I have a Trophy and a Storm, both cracking bows. If you want to chuck a serious amount of cash at it look at the border bows, super fast bows and a real thing of beauty. My Rob Roy is a fiendish thing.

    This thing can get worse than air guns.

    Look very nice, I think I’ve made my mind up already on the next bow though! The guy who runs the archery shop let me shoot his, he has a kaiser chillon riser in red/black and uukha limbs. A mix of old and new really. It’s a stunning bow and so smooth to shoot. It was a mistake trying it. Though reasonably priced at around £600 ish or so. Though more practice is needed at the mo, I’ll probably also kit out my mybo origin compound as a 3D bow too if it doesn’t sell. Shame for it to sit unused so I’d rather use it than have it sat doing nothing.

    And you’re right, it can def get more expensive than airguns, great though! I’ll be back up after work one night this week.
