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.

  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.

    I'll be coming to this one*! For once, the Mrs doesn't have any plans for that weekend! I'll be practicing some standing/kneeling/prone shooting next weekend in preparation :)

    *barring any emergencies

    Don’t worry about it mate, we all have to start somewhere with it. My first effort was a 39 with my .20 cal hw100kt laminate. Was hooked after that. Have seen a few bull pups so nothing to worry about and it’s all quite informal. Good set of lads and just enjoy the morning out.

    You've asked for it so we give you it!

    Due to the positive feedback regarding the Three Wise Monkey Challenge we will continue to run it through the Winter Series.
    Each round will have three monkey targets of varying sizes as targets within the course. Knockdown all three to win a prestigious NMHFT Golden Monkey badge. All together now "ooooooooooo"

    I've a feeling i'm going to be absolutely naff at this :laff: Went to Swarland to do some practice

    I think i've gotten used to shooting from a bench too much at the range, cos 7/10 shots missed the aimpoint kneeling or standing :facepalm:. Prone was ok though

    Remember 24 of the shots are prone. There's only two supported kneelers and one unsupported, likewise the standers.
    There is no "being naff at this", honestly it's all about having a relaxed time shooting targets in a woodland. Your score doesn't even come into it and aslong as your safety is good no one will think twice about you.

    Let's face it, if @Drake267 can knock them down now and again it can't be that hard! :p

    I'm looking forward to it, even if i do end up being pap :)

    The supported shots for kneeling and standing, what does this consist of? Sorry for the daft question :)

    Like that is it! Told you before, if you sling enough lead you have to eventually hit something! :D

    There's usually a tree or a large stake that you can prop against.

    As Bob has already said. A tree or stake over 6 foot. For this particular course we have 4 trees that we will be using for the supported shots.
    So basically a tree you can rest or support yourself against to get a steady aim.
