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.

    Hi all

    Recently moved to Kent, Borough Green little over a year ago
    wanted to introduce myself

    my names Tom, married, 2 children and the dogs, from Worcestershire originally where i are up
    shooting, hunting, ferreting and helping out with local shoots which got me into cooking and eating game and started a real passion

    im a cook and with it i moved to London and 12 yeas later moved out of London with my now wife and children to Kent, absolutely love it, enjoy nothing more than being out with my oldest, foraging mushrooms, plants, fruit and cooking, preserving it all

    But hugely missing my country pursuits but at a bit of a dilemma i don't know many people, none who are involved in our passion and looking for intros to fellow enthusiasts in Kent who can introduce me to local shoots for beating, ferreting, shooting clubs, permissions or someone who wants a shooting buddy.

    I've got a brain between my ears and im a competent shot and like to think a good cook so happy to provide my cooking expertise as part of the deal to take me along

    either way I've been watching & enjoying this forum without joining for a good while so thought it time i joined and partook in discussion and make a few friends along the way if nothing else.. keep it up!!

    welcome... james @tinmanofkent may be able to point you in the right direction for beating...you would be really lucky for someone to take you out on their permission, generally folks dont share, esp with strangers.... you could try going door knocking yourself, or hope you get a perm from the beating

    Welcome, Tom, to the best airgunning website in the COSMOS! No matter what you want to know there's someone on here to help. If you've been 'lurking' for a bit you'll know what's what but I recommend a daily dose of 'New Posts' and liberal applications of 'Search' button.
    I'm sure that we would all enjoy sharing your tried and tested (and foolproof) game recipes. :wave:

    The garden of England,a lovely place. I have shot all over Kent prior to moving North of Watford, the best pigeons in the UK. Even wildfowling on the Kent foreshore.
    Welcome aboard me ol' china. Get door knocking for permission, they are around but you have to find them.

    I left London 25 years ago so now unable to comment on whether to join or not. I would however suggest that you do to "get yer nose in" and find out what's going on, word of mouth and all that.
    They were very good in my day, I loved it. I praised them for re-introducing greylag geese back to the south with eggs from Scotland, took several years of "NO SHOOTING GREYLAGS but there were plenty of Canada geese.
