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:


    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.

    Lovely day at RR today had to go in today to give staff advice on doing woodwork and timber care so I took my Brocock contour .177 to have a plink whilst doing it.
    I'm not able to do any work really so I just give a bit of advice and slag off their work ethic. I set up a 20 meter target and spent an hour plinking at some targets got bored with that so went for a look around for a few thing to shoot at. Found an old bit of steel hinge long farm one with bolt holes in it tried to shoot the holes bit of fun a 20 meters easy stuff no ting through the thing he he.
    Then that was boring went for another muche around went through a cubby hole of mine found a load of blanks and target launcher rounds now that might be fun. Drilled out one of the holes in the hinge to fit one of the bigger rounds the other two holes perfect then found some even bigger blanks drilled a couple of holes in a piece of old decking for them back down to my seat.
    The range I had set up was outside our chalet dry room party room that the staff are doing up sanding down tables putting in work surface you guys know working hard in.
    I'm sat on a soft comfy chair with another chair in fount of me with a box on it nice shooting bench staff fetching me coffee wife fetching me sandwiches unlimited air and targets that go BANG!!.
    Some of the blanks are rim fire some centre fire so take a bit to get spot on to make go bang but I got my eye in fantastic scared the cr&p out of the staff when the first one went off. I think I went through 25 blanks and loads of pellets the centre fire have to be hit smack on the rim fire easy all the time watching the staff work hard and me interjecting with unhelpful comments and suggestions. A Good Day.
