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.

  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.

    Some friends are opening a new shooting shop and indoor ranges in Arnold, Nottingham NG5 7ER.It's the basement of an old mill building that's now a business centre.

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.0...m4!1e1!3m2!1sNI4-6b8Z56sT78OK_h6ZiA!2e0?hl=en

    The shop will be catering to all shooting interests and in particular airgun shooting. In addition to the shop there is a café, and two separate 25 yard indoor ranges, one of which will be for airguns, the other for rimfires.

    Launch dates cover two days, Friday 12th and Saturday 13th September. Got to be worth a look at what could well become one of the best set up shooting shops and facilities in the East Midlands.

    N.B. I have no association with the owners, other than friendship.

    If anyone who hasn't been banned from the ********* or the Weirauch Owners club would be kind enough to put this info on their boards I'd be grateful. No reason why their members should be deprived of this information. Probably best not to mention the source. :rolleyes:

    Launch date is tomorrow (Friday), and again Saturday. On these days visitors will be able to try various airgun skills, including IPAS (Iron Plate Acton Shooting), some field target skills, and others. Each shooter will be entered into a draw for an air rifle. Tea, coffee and cakes are all available at reasonable process. A special guest appearance will be made by the Internationally famed forum member Shootist!

    I am looking for somewhere to shoot air rifle and pistol in Nottingham. Does anyone know if this range in Arnold is still operating? I can't find any contact details online. I realise that this thread is four years old.

    I am in Nottingham and unfortunately without transport. So limited to public transport and Shanks' pony. Which is a problem for most shooting grounds. So this one in Arnold would be great. I hope to check it out next week.
