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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    just been out for a shoot, and why is it that when ive got my gun, theres nothing to shoot, but i havent got my gun, theres loads!!!

    got to my shoot, gun out etc, and set off, hardly saw a dickie bird. saw two squirrels in a tree, i sat there and sat there, and they didnt come out to play after diving into the hollow.
    i walked back past the same spot with the farmer, without my gun, about 20 mins after this, and the two didnt even move hardly when we went past, easy pickings if id of had my gun!

    also, there were loads of crows about, but non wanted to play when i was with my gun!!! the one i DID shoot, big puff of feathers and it flew off, and that was from about 20yards away!!! i cant believe my luck at the moment!!!

    i havent had a good shoot for ages!!!

    stress over!!!

    sods law:rolleyes:

    i think it has something to do with body language.

    look at a fox when it on the prowl its low and sneeky but when its having a nice sunday stroll it had its head up and mind's it's own buisness.

    same with us with a gun.
    when we havi it we are all sneeky and mysterious.
    without it we are walking inosent people.

    on the farm when im after the pigeons i act natural as if i hve no intention of geting them.

    dont make eye contact thats another thing if you stare quarry knows your eying it up.

    pigeons are rellitivley dumb tey have 2 frames of mind:
    1. everythings fine lets stay here
    2. head for the hills!!!!

    i just walk nice and calm behind a wall and pocke the gun out it works

    i have one plastic crow over a rabbit with its guts all over the place.

    make it look like a tractor's hit it or something.

    if you have more than one deek just put them all over th place anywhere natural.

    make em head up into the winf but dont line em up like soldiers;)
