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.

Got Me A Plinking Range!

    After a chat with my uncle last week I had a tour of his 32 acre woodland and now I've got permission to camp and shoot whenever I like.

    I'm totally gob smacked by his generosity and the beauty of his land.

    Camped out Friday, tidied up Saturday and went down again this morning to start creating the first of many shooting ranges.

    The first and only lane so far is the plinking range. So far it has 5 @hairyarms spinners, 4 of my bells, a resettable target box, a 14cm target holder and a wooden block to hold some golf tees with paintballs on top. The longest shot is about 70 yards out and is named "big yella" as it's the biggest bell of them all.

    Lots of potential down here for many years of enjoyable shooting and camping.

    I'm totally buzzing guys, I'll be buying a FT knock down target every payday and stacking them up for the spring. It looks like me n my boy will get plenty of practice in down these woods.

    Now that looks like the place where all boys should grow up, shooting and camping what could be better, you lucky man.
    Also thanks for the lovely pics, keep up the good work and get those knock downs up and running matey.

    Cheers bud.:thumb:
    Life would be a dream if we'd all grown up in a place like this, luckily my lad is only 10 so he's gonna benefit massively from this kind gesture.

    I didn't build the hide, it's been here for a few years, also many high chairs scattered around the place. They are in place to help control the deer, I didn't see any but plenty of fresh tracks noticed on Saturday morning.

    I've already made one feeder and I'll put it up in a couple of weeks.
    I'll be keeping my eye out for scrap wood from now on.:thumb:
