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.

    So I'm currently staying at my girlfriends till I start my basic training for the army next month as my mum and dad are in Germany because my dad is posted their again, so as you can imagine, not knowing the area and people as well has put a bit of a dampener on getting a permission. So I took a job at one of the local pubs a couple of months back and started to get to know a lot of the locals and have been speaking to a few about shooting. But recently my girlfriends dad said he knew of people he could ask for permissions for me. However with him working away a lot I think he might have forgotten. Anyway, cut a long story short me and the girlfriend had to pop round to one of said peoples houses last night so I got chatting to them and dropped a few comments about shooting and before I know it they were like come round anytime and shoot. They literally live less than a mile down the road and are surrounded by four fields, one empty, one with sheep, one with horses and another with cows. When we left they were all swarming with pigeons and rabbits. Chuffed to say the least!

    Sorry for the essay haha.

    Excellent, look forward to hearing what comes from the first outing. Just don't kick the arse out of it all to soon. Animals have a very good skill in deciding places are not as safe as they once were. Try to gain a couple more permissions and then you can alternate them around, that way giving time for things to recover after each time you pay a visit. Enjoy. KB1

    Well done mate I'm pleased for you. It will also help you when looking for new perms to mention this one as a 3rd party reference is always the best.

    First cow feed robbing sky rat taken at 35yards on the new perm. Very good sport here as everything is VERY wary around here so lots of stalking found the perfect hide using one of the equipment sheds. Not long after this photo two red kites were circling the area so it went very quiet so the landowner decided to get their rifle and pistol out to have a little target shoot-off. [​IMG]

    Word got out about me and the new permission. The landowners who let me shoot on there told friends about me and they want me to shoot on their farm as well now to cull the mass of magpies they have.
