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.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

Forest Bathing With Miss Ultra

    Gentlemen.....

    The Gods shine their light down upon these wretched persons and have bestowed us with a most glorious of mornings....

    Feeling the need, I decided to heed the clarion call and I ventured up to my local Ancient woodland hide for a spot of forest bathing and "back to nature" worship...
    Accompanying me in the hide was Miss Ultra and a flask of hot coffee...

    For an hour or so, we simply rejoiced in the wonderment of the songbirds and plethora of wildlife (that were NOT on the quarry list).... The Robin, Nuthatch, Tits, Woodpecker, Stock doves and Pheasants....

    And as I was reclining back on the trunk of the old oak tree, being at one with my surroundings.... my mind and body melding into the Earth in this most hallowed of areas..... I spotted a movement in the canopy of the feeder tree..... but it was moving quickly and showed no signs of pausing for a break....

    "Hmmm thinks I... that burger was not wanting to hit the feeder this morning"....

    Another few minutes passed and as my weary eyes scanned the vista of anciet woods before me.... and there it was... a flicker of a bushy tail some 30 yards away under the biue pheasant feeder bin....

    Now prior to the "rest and One-ness" in the hide, I fed Miss Ultra with QYS pellets (which she particularly likes)... and at the 22 yard target card the dispensed pellet clipped the 3mm bull..
    What a good girl she is!!!!!

    So from this I knew that at 30 ish yards I woud need about 1 mil dot of hold over....

    Miss Ultra was caressed into the crux of the rest, the cross hairs planted just above said intended target.... her safety button was...........flicked deftly.... and she came alive....

    She dispensed the QYS with clinical laser accuracy to down the feeding tree rodent....

    The woodland returned to its calm and composure as the plethora of songbirds made regular sorteed to the free food on offer.... paying no heed to the fallen rodent....

    There were no more sightings of the grey rodent... well not for now.....

    Another hour of basking in this environmental utopia with the suns rays streaming through the first line of naked trees to my left........ and my soul was cleansed and refreshed....

    Back home for the trials and tribulations of the day with an added vigour and enthusiasm.

    I DO love my forest bathing sessions with Miss Ultra....

    Is that sound insulation on the walls of your hide? If you're not forest bathing I bet you're in there raving with the wood nymphs ;)
