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.

    We popped over to see Fran and Richard at Rough Wedge Airgun Club, Cannock this morning.

    They're working on changes so they can re-open next Sunday 24th May.

    Happy days ;)

    Sunday mornings 9 am to 1 pm

    Not sure about all the changes being put into place (I.e. free drinks so I'd take your own)

    In the woods, 15 lane target course. Usually 10-55yards. Mostly up to 45, usually 1 at 55 yards.
    They are being changed for resetables (no strings)
    One person/household per lane so if you go with a mate, shoot on neighbouring lanes.
    There's plenty of room to socially distance around course.

    Update from Sunday 24th May 2020

    We arrived just after 9am

    Not too busy in the car park, about half full.

    By the time I'd paid, a spot was free on the zero range.

    There's markings to keep apart, only 5 spots so hogging the plink may earn you a gentle nudge towards the course ;D

    There's a two person pistol range.

    We set off towards the course. This and next week there's just one target per lane, resettable targets. We enjoyed practicing standers & kneelers on our zero. There were just a couple 50+ yards.

    The targets were easy to spot, being stringless is strange.

    Everyone kept moving, didn't feel pressured or frustrated once, we finished in record time. I didn't mind the lack of targets because resetting is an extra shot.

    We had time to go around again after tweaking my butt hook set up. By then, there was a 2man que waiting for lane 1 (bad timing) but I got straight on the plink so checked my fit while Daz had a cuppa.

    I was right about drinks- covid 19 put pay to them, got to bring your own. Will miss the free biscuits as well :(

    Rich and Fran said they're really pleased with the attitude of everyone who came and shot Sunday. It's nice they were asking members for feedback.

    From 7th June, it will be £4 for adults and £2 for Juniors.

    They're planning on bringing the strings back 7th June -

    You can bring a hook /, tent peg puller or use a CLUB tent peg that'll be donated by Rich, to reset the string.

    I think I've covered everything.


    Emma :D
