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.

    I was talking to the other chap who helps out (sorry I don't know his name) and he was saying you didn't have many target holders,so I have made a couple.I think the grid type will be good,a A4 sized piece of card slots straight in and there are 24 squares to shoot at.Its just a prototype I don't know if the mesh will dent!I will try and get it over one of the Sundays ATB Micah SAM_1023.jpg

    I really like the new layout guys, I think it makes the place seem more spacious than it was before and the targets are at an ideal distance i think. Great work!

    Really enjoyed the new course layout today, including the crows with santa hats on. plinking range was a great improvement with targets set out at 5 yard intervals from 10yards to was it 60yards. a great help for zeroing all we need now is a few of hairyarms paper holder targets and we have perfection

    Merry Christmas to everyone

    DaveF, the marker card at 35yds are available to anyone. They can be set out at 5yd intervals & are great for working out your mil-dots over any range. Just aim at the printed reticle dead centre and shoot each target once. Then go back and measure how many mil-dots over/under from your POI. Adjust as required for each target range & shoot again.

    In theory, all should be good! And bang on target...

    And then there's me...

    If you fancy having a go next time, come & see Mark, Marc, Stu, or, if your desperate, me.

    Our thanks to Thumbhole, Skid, & Pidlar for all their efforts with the club, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes that has to be done, each week, to keep it going. Thanks lads.

    Hope you all have a great Christmas.

    Beautiful morning, weather was very crisp & even. Didn't stop me getting a bootfull painting the targets though... ;)

    However, Pidlar wobbled nearly as much shooting the course, as he did on the ladders setting up. :D

    Good fun on the course, 14 Sheep had a self induced nightmare, :eek: will tighten the buddy bottle WITHOUT gloves on, in future. :D

    Ryan is better with his TX200 than his R-10, :eek: The banter between Ryan & his mate, (M?) was fierce! But all in good fun.

    A brand fire new Daystate was christened by Dean, lovely rifle with many envious looks. Santa must of confused him with me... :rolleyes:

    Good to see everyone on the last shoot of the year, here's wishing everyone a happy new year at Kinver ARC from 14 Sheep & me.:up::up::up:

    BTW, thevoid, Didn't do too bad myself... :D:D:D

    More luck than judgement...

    It was a great morning but the worst I've shot since I started. Learnt a BIG lesson in when changing bottles, make sure it is tight!!! Gone from PB to 4 dounuts in 1 week! But I will be back on form in 2014.
    Also want to say a big thank you to everyone at Kinver for making me and Ade so welcome to the club this year and for all your help and advise.
    Looking forward to shooting through 2014.
