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.

    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item

  6. 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 did look, is there a thread with the ranges and perhaps other detail on joining/times for the UK, or showing ones in North Surrey/W London ?

    Thanks in advance.

    You don't say what you're shooting..air gun? powder burner? FAC air? Clay pigeon? etc.

    I'm sure Google will help you out.

    Apologies, as per the forum, an airgun, sub 12ftIbs. (though I suppose 6ftIb pistol range might be suitable if they are provided). I wouldn't know if clubs have a limit on power at the door.

    Preferably child friendly in order that I introduce younger family members to the 'inner circle' at some point.

    Can one shoot with a clay pigeon ?

    The club I go to will occasionally pick a gun or two at random for a power test. If it shows over the limit, the police are called in and you won't get the gun back unless you have the appropriate licence.

    The rifle I would be bringing is a Gamo Junior Hunter, complete with twelve year old.

    I doubt anyone here could oil the internals to make it even remotely interesting to plod.

    (Go on, you know you want to).....

    Thanks, though Uxbridge is close to a 40 mile round trip.

    .

    mots the best part of 40 miles each way for me but it’s worth it
    I don’t know of any other ranges in the area that have more than a 25/30 yard range, and we have a 70 yarder with enough targets to keep anyone happy along with an hft trainer section and now that the grass is cut should have a permanent hft course back out.
    It’s very easy going, and we welcome all ages- we try to get more youngsters in and have several juniors from 5 years and up that tend to love it. Upper ages are 70+ - we have a few that I wouldn’t like to give ages for by happily admit to being a bot older!
    We tend to work together and will happily give advice and assistance to anyone, and anything else to help each other.
    If you’d like to have a look, feel free to drop a pm and I’ll fill you in. First visit is free if you don’t like it, so got to be worth a pint- you might even like us!

    Thanks. It's not so much me (I could be there inside 30m on the motorbike), an hour plus each way in the car with a twelve year old is something else.
    But I will consider options. :thumb:

    It's 50 plus miles and upwards of 90 minutes driving for me but I was there today, third visit.

    Great fun!
    Good Craic.
    Plenty of shooting and conversation.

    At 71 I was the oldest there as usual - and by far the worst shot!

    @Guloluseus and his mates are very welcoming.
    No pee taking at all about my shooting like Ray Charles.

    Suits me fine.
