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.

    '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.

    Will be honest with you mate, there are soo many people that try to ask to tag along to permissions with other guys who have worked hard, knocking from after farm to gain a permission an keep there own onto just let anyone tag along. No disrespect but I would do as all of us do and get out there and start knocking on farms, talking to local farmers and handing out letters that you have typed up. Today I went out to go see a few farmers an golf courses and ended up with a new farm.

    Like I said no disrespect

    As above.
    Most people are very careful not to give out too many details of firearms they own, their address, and where they shoot, on the internet.

    The chances of someone meeting a stranger off the internet in the middle of the countryside with their rifle in their hand are slim.
    You need to take things a little more slowly.
    How do you know you need .223 or .243 until you have some land to shoot on. You may need .17 hmr / .22lr, a shotgun and a .17 / .22 hornet etc.
    My advice would be do some door knocking at the weekend. Get some land, shoot it with your air rifle and then go from there.
    Target shooting you will start with .22lr at most clubs, target rifles and hunting rifles are very different. Many people target shoot and hunt but different rifles are required really.
    Cheers Andy

    Have you tried bisley range they are only hour & half from you I suspect. Plenty of full bore rifles there. They do introductory days and it would give you a good indication of what you whould be able to have. Plus some very knowledgeable people there that would help you in the right direction.
    As I said in another post of your, you are trying to run before you can walk.
