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.

    '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.

    trust me , i need wind training lol , last 2 rounds were in heavyish wind and they were both low to mid 40s

    thanks guys , every round now will get 100% concentration to keep me in the 50s , i can rush the occasional shot if i cant get comfortable or somethings not right but im learning to stop this and get up and re-assess then get back down instead of thinking this is the best shot i can get and taking it and rarely knocking them down but im learning and fast :D

    30 targets , 2 points for hitting the kill zone and knocking it down and 1 point for hitting the target anywhere else

    a good score but the real test is shooting a course that you have never shot before.the problem is you get to know all the ranges of the targets, thats what I like about shooting at mad ,cambridge and lea valley is another club local that put out a fresh course every time .
    Its still good practice and it certainly won't hurt entering some comps ,but you find some clubs put out tougher courses than others .

    I was practicing kneelers and standers :p:D but 56 is still a solid score as it only takes some silly mistakes to wreck a score.Shooting comps is a different bag. You may not even feel nervous but you can just make bad decisions, your breathing and heart rate can change. I've often shot a comp and after gone back to shoot the ones I missed and got them :rolleyes:. and then theres the shoot offs :eek:

    just an example of how comps can change in difficulty and how one day you can shoot well and other days not, last saturday I shot Lea Valley for the 1st time(as i work saturdays) and tied 2nd with a 52 (it was windy)then the following day I shot @cambridge but it was cambridge rules which means killzones as small as 8mm and 2 targets over 50yds and one 65yds with a strong breeze thrown in .It beat me up bad, I got my personal worst of 38/60 :eek: yes it was hard but I missed quite a few I shouldn't have. the top score that day was 49.
