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.

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.

    Good evening all.

    I'm from Coalville, Leicestershire.

    Does any one know any ranges clubs round Leicestershire.

    I know about kibworth but it's a treck.

    A couple of clubs local to me you have to join and two adults and a junior makes it very expensive! For it not to be used every week!

    Is there any where that does pay and shoot and open in the eavnings as well as at weekends?

    Thanks for any help.

    Jamie

    Evening Jamie. Here's a couple of options for you:

    1. The Greyhound (CV6 6DF) about half an hour from Coalville. Top venue, Pay'n'shoot (£4/day) open 9am until late etc. great plinking range to 65 yards with a covered firing point, pub next door which does nice grub at sensible money. HFT course if you're bored of continually nailing the small 65 yarders :). 18 Wheeler double thumbs up seal of approval.

    2. Fieldshott (Kingsbury B78 2HZ) just off the M42 south of Tamworth (handy if you're dropping into Solware, the best airgun shop in the area ~ IMO).
    Range details here, not been myself, but worth a visit. More expensive than The Greyhound, but may be worth it if it's more convenient for you etc.

    HTH and happy shooting.

    ATB, Nick

    Between you and Ashby, I don't know what it is called, but it is 500 yards from the Euro hub - I have to describe how to get there.

    Head to Ashby so you go over the M42...next roundabout (left for Ashby, straight on for Burton) turn RIGHT (I think for Breedon) about 1/2 mile turn RIGHT where the Euro hub is about 1/2 mile past Euro hub ON THE RIGHT, there is a clay ground. They also do airguns and have a HFT set out through the woods. A plinking range with an electric gallery for slow moving targets and spinners, plus paper hangers. Sorry, no phone number, but I am sure you can track it down from that.

    Thanks yes I know about dead and grooby.

    They would be ideal.

    But the cost of joining is too much.

    For two adults and a junior.

    That's the problem with them I just can't weren't 300-400 a year to use once a fortnight

    Thx though

    Ive visited Groby its an indoors target club and wasnt for me, i know the FT lads put a course out every now and again.
    The Greyhound could be a trek for you, it is open 7days a week, gun fills,bottle fills, pellets, plinking range with loads of targets, FT sighting range,pistol range and newly laid out FT/HFT course, £4 for adults.
    For a quick weekend morning shoot you could try Moxons farm ARC on the other side of hinkley you take the turn off the A5 opossite the lime kiln pub, indoor pistol range and 45yard plinking range take and put your own targets out Saturday its 9 till 3 and sunday 9 till 1, not the same as the greyhound, but its a nice place for regulars to go.

    Thanks all I've asked to join the Loughborough Facebookpage.

    I did send them a message via the website.

    I'll have a look at them Hinckley and greyhound ones.

    Thx
