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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Shame about the gun being too long as the owners are very big on gun fit.
    If you go again ask for a better fitting loan gun, they should sort you out.
    If you find the gun is long stand more side on, it opens your body up and lifting your elbow level with your shoulder opens the shoulder pocket, this lets you shoot a long gun easier. Opposite for a short gun. More square on to the target and drop your elbow the shoulder pocket closed pushes the gun forward.

    One of my favorite things to do. Highly addictive.

    Off topic but are you getting out to your perm much? Have you been able to do any wild camping?

    I've been a couple of times in the last month but been busy with plenty of other shooting lately:D
    I'd like to do some wild camping but it's too cold for that at the moment, maybe in spring time when it will be a bit more enjoyable

    I'm thinking of putting in for my Sec2 soon, just got to get the 7gun cabinet upstairs which won't be easy after a hernia opp.
    I only go clay shooting once or twice a year as I have to borrow one of the old mans shotguns, it's the combination of not going very often & 20yrs of static centrefire target shooting have ruined my shotgun shooting.
    My skeet is ok but my trap shooting is embarrassing!

    @rich79. That should be other way round. After shooting rifles skeet should be harder as you need forward allowance/lead. Dtl trap shooting is going away so more like rifle shooting.

    Get one and get out shoot sporting clays more, don't go after shooting rifles though, I learned that lesson. Clays first then get rifle out.

    Yeah I'm weird like that.
    I did have a sec2 from when I was 12-13, went rough shooting with the old man, then when I got to 17 I got my Sec1, shotguns went on the back burner then a few years later I sold them & didn't renew.
    I always wait too long on going away birds that's the problem.
