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.

Fun At The Range

    I was browsing a while back for some new target ideas....So I bought some of those small caps that kids throw up in the air and when they land on hard ground they go "bang"!. Got a few boxes for few quid... Each box has about 50 of the little bags, each cap bag is about, oh I don't know, say about 5mm wide with a little "tail" at the end of the bag, where its been twisted.

    Eg: See link here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004P8BBY2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Got some standard kitchen type string, cut a length about 2' long (600mm), and at about every few inches I tied two of the little cap bags to the string (via their tails). So the string then had about 12 of those little cap bags dangling.

    We have old ply or OSB type boards as backstops at our range, so placed a wooden skewer into side of one of the boards, (at around 33m distance), horizontally about 3ft off the ground, I then tied the string (with its caps) to the skewer, so it was now hanging down.

    Today it was windy, not as windy as yesterday, but still windy, (15 to 30mph gusts) so the string was moving around the whole time. Myself and the other guys at the range (only a few of us today) proceeded to have a very enjoyable time, firstly trying to hit the small cap bags, when they were gone, we then tried to hit the string, when that was gone, we then tried to hit the skewer. Until eventually that was gone too.
    It was a very challenging but very enjoyable shoot, and really tested our shooting abilities.

    I also put out some small map push pins, see link: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200-Push...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    These are also quite small and a challenge to shoot, we had these at 25m and managed to hit them ok.

    If your shooting is getting boring, try to think outside the box for some new shooting challenges, if you can't shoot longer, then maybe try shooting smaller, or just try something different. Most of all, have fun..... :)

    I find things like cigarette ends in toothpicks jabbed into an apple or potato work well for a challenge in the garden, or trying to knock the lid off a bottle has kept me busy for a couple hours.

    At the right time of the year I use Holly berries
    Plus map pins.
    I will try to hit my wife's purse strings next, to see if it releases anything for me
