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.

  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.

    He he I think I'm lucky in a way I just put my airgun in a small shoulder bag and walk 3 min and I'm in a field that u can walk for hours no end and I'm in forest's bigger that big .durham is a nice place for that .but the problem is I cannot just walk and be relaxed cos is no shooting area. It's alot of game but if sombody see me and call police I lose my air rifle. The thing is I got my self a litle aluminium folding chair a tend all the nesasery things to cook aswell a litle gas thing that go in my rack sack and I think I will take advantage of this shut up and go set up my tend somewere here and who cares if is no hunting area lol.u just made me to go here next to me m8 and enjoy the place. I wanted somthing lagal but I see not alot of people have this freedom like I do here .really its heaven here I will takeep my things later and go.I will post a photo of the forest next to me post it and I know all will call me stubit for not going here and looking for something else. But the main reason is the place you cannot just walk in forest and hunt.it's like a walking big forest hours on end and a lake aswell big one .but hunting I don't think I just can walk just like that

    Welcome to the forum, Akovic. :wave:

    I think most of us would advise that you wait until you've got a proper permission before you go hunting. If you're spotted with a gun, most people don't know the difference (particularly at a distance) between an airgun and a powder burner and the last thing you need is to have a helicopter hovering over you while police with semi-automatic weapons advance on you. Your shooting would be abruptly stopped and the consequences could be unwelcome.

    There is a thing called armed trespass - you don't want to be part of that.

    You shouldn't be afraid to go there, you shouldn't go there, it's armed trespass and could land you in jail.

    I find it highly unlikely that nobody owns that forest.

    In the U.K. there is no public land. Everywhere belongs to someone and you must have written permission to shoot on any land except if you own it yourself. Even carrying your rifle without good reason is a big no-no. If you are in public with it you must be on your way to or from somewhere you have or will use it like a gunsmiths or a range. Stick to your garden until you find a local range or permission or you’ll be in trouble

    3rd party liability.
    Do yourself a favour Akovich. Go walking, wild camping, whatever you like in the woods but leave your airgun at home until you have somewhere legal to shoot.
    If you get caught you will be up for armed trespass, end up in court, lose your gun and probably be banned from ever owning one again. In the meantime spend some time researching the laws and regulations governing what you can or can't do. Breaking the law with any kind of gun in this country is no joke.

    I’m guessing the writing in the top left says “National Nature Reserve”?
