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.

    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.

    Check the opening times, the ones I've seen advertised are wrong, they do not open from 10am on a Tuesday as I've found out today, and I'm sure that's what it says on their door? I'll check again later and post the correct ones as I plan to go back later today when it is open.

    Okay...............

    I have nothing to do with the range, but spent 4 hours there today and got a bit on info for general release:

    The range is being run by Bolton Gun Club initially for sub 12ftlb air guns, but with a view to increase this to include FAC at a later date, but it's not known when.

    Bolton Gun Club are using it for their own club on a Friday evening, but opening it to the public as a shooting range at other times, and have plans to develop it into a stocked shop/range/canteen etc. which they are currently looking at. It is currently around 35yards, and very large with loads of knock down and reset targets, you can also put up paper ones. They have the room to expand this out to about 45/50m give or take, and have the space to divide it into several disciplines like target/pistol/plink etc.

    They currently hire a few guns out, have a small selection of pellets, and can do T/coffee/fry ups etc.

    The opening times have changed today - Tuesday the 24th June 2014, and are currently:

    Sat/Sun 10 - 6pm
    Mon 12 - 8pm
    Tue 2 - 10pm
    Wed 10 - 5pm
    Thu 2 - 10pm
    Fri (club night) 10am till late (finishes when club members leave)

    Cost is currently £5 a session, for however long you want, air is 50p, and they have a compressor, but it's not yet on line, hence the small charge for air.

    Contact: Mike: 07788691350

    I hope this helps everyone and clears some of the confusion.
