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.'

  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.

    Decided to utilise the side of my house today, and make a range. I have started off with a gun rest for now made out of scrap wood from my wood working workshop. and a slap of wood to shoot.
    I estimate the range is about 10/15m in length and is up hill.

    Along side I have a wall that’s 7ft on the outside and about 6ft on the inside of the garden. With a 6ft brick wall as a backstop.
    I plan to make a little cover over the top of the backstop to eliminate any risk of projectiles Ricocheting over the wall.
    I’m
    I have a smart reloder gun rest coming (early Christmas present) thanks dad
    So that’ll be a perfect companion for my springer. F23EE1E7-87B0-4848-BFD9-65AD5281B089.jpeg 4DED8C9C-7814-4ACA-9783-2305325273D5.jpeg 0FD07DFB-5079-46C7-975D-C04EBE963389.jpeg E7FCBE96-F312-4EC1-B43B-A5367328F91A.jpeg CF923882-5945-4053-94CF-F00F25189A5F.jpeg

    The original soil pipe ran inside the house but it collapsed deep underground.. so insurance ran a new pipe and put a durgo valve one way vent on top. Not the prettiest, but it works

    Can you get a canopy over the shooting position? Few things more satisfying than sitting dry in the slashing rain shooting to a dry target,

    I will buddy. I have designed it so that it is easily removable to put in the garage when not used.
    If I keep it there my dogs will use it as a stepping stone to escape the garden

    I could but I’ve designed the rest to be removable to prevent my wolfs form escaping the garden. 61048AF1-6B1B-40BE-947F-BA09976ED522.jpeg

    A leg to the ground will help over time, that table will put quite a force on the post when your leaning on it. Even a folding or removable leg.
    Fishing brolly can be great to shoot under when raining.
