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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    As ive been thinking about doing some HFT and going with a friend over birmingham way this week. So ive been reading lots of info on another forum. Been looking at some pictures from a HFT shoot in a quarry I beleive in wales and now a little worried.

    Wondering if i need a new suit to particapate in this sport. Do I go for 3D Seaclustion or Realtree I'm at a loss as over half the shooters are dressed the same.
    Is it really nessesery....or is it a dress code.
    Andrew.

    A lot of these guys hunt and shoot HFT so makes sense to use what they have rather than go to the expense of having two outfits. It makes no odds Andrew what you wear as the welcome is always a good one.

    I guess the guys that hunt and do HFT have the camo gear for their hunting so they wear it for it`s quality and waterproof properties in HFT.

    The last comp I took part in I was in jeans and a fleece. When the rain started I put on over trousers and a bright orange gortex hiking jacket lol

    Can`t do camo for competition myself ;) but whatever is comfortable is right, camo or not :up:

    or at shooting / fishing shows.... I am always amused when people are in full camo at those.

    Next time I think I will go in full camo + face paint and a ghille suit.

    For HFT I would almost have a rule of no camo as once I saw the whistle being blown to open the range whilst a bloke in full camo was putting up targets at the 60 yd mark on the plinking range. There was a sudden shout that there was still someone at the end of the range and behold if you looked *really* carefully there was someone ... in full camo

    Forgot to add, I refered to the subject coming up a lot, it seems to be at the range, when plinking and hunting etc.....

    I wear my 'traveller' coat when ratting and at the range that's it really, I'm no where near good enough for HFT... I only shoot to 30 yds, good luck with it and get your ghille suit on.....

    In HFT we only shoot to 45 yds max. And all courses are safety marshalled. Not a chance in hell of anyone ever being over the shooting line after the shoot starts. We just let anyone wear what they want, we ain't bothered, we ain't pretentious and we don't judge. We even let those stupid looking nerds on wearing leather cowboy hats and long western trench coats. ;):)

    If it's cold wet and miserable I wear surplus stuff, plus I help set up at our local club so am always chest deep in brambles and nettles. Out and about as the weather warms I'm usually in shorts boots and a long sleeved t shirt.
