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.

    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.'

  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.

    I took a look at the coke bottle 22 blank bullet target holders and decided I could make one myself.
    Just need to take it out now and test it out. The idea for the center point is to cut out and fit a 12g cartridge (minus the shot).
    Hopefully my aiming is good enough to fire the blanks now, need the weather to stop raining long enough to test it out.

    Good job, can we see a pic of the back? Would like to make one myself. Just a bit concerned that the holes at the points of the star do not give much coverage if you get a flyer, need to make sure you use extra back stops!

    I couldn't find any pressings when I needed to make some spinners for last year's Boinger Bash so I used repair washers.

    But I found something easier to make spinners from this year.

    I don't care what he does with them Nick! the tea spoons were 10p each and the table spoons 20p each --- funnily enough, Morrisons in Hinckley have run out of tea spoons and table spoons. ;) :D

    Morning all, the target worked lovely yesterday evening. Plenty of feed back when you hit the blanks. Not to worried about flyers, I'll use it on my permission plenty of space in the middle of no where with earth back stops.

    Cheers Micah

    I may well take you up on the offer at some point as I'm thinking of having some silhouette targets laser cut and will need some discs for them.

    I'm sorted for spinners for the Boinger Bash now and have repainted the bell targets :-

    And now I've started sorting the Quigley bucket out, I'm just painting the bucket and doing a quick rewire job.

    I don't think I'll bother painting the front face as it shows how hard folks have tried to hit it. :D

    There was no hole in the hedge behind before they started firing. :eek:

    I wanted a target setup that I could fit in the boot of my car, it comes in two pieces the base and the target holder.
    Made from Off-cuts in the garage, there is now a 2mm Ally plate behind the A4 target with some packaging plastic foam to stop rebounds.
