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.

    IT STATES TO KEEP THEIR LOCATION TOP SECRET - just thought I'd mention it...

    Has anyone on here used this? I'm only just starting out in the airgun world, wonderd if its worth getting a BASC membership and trying this out? Any feedback would be great, or even anyone willing to turn up with me and offer some 'knowledgeable' insight into bunny busting ;)

    I have been there mate it's a good set up, there's indoor and outdoor ranges and plenty of land to rough shoot on, you don't necessarily need basc insurance as there are plenty of cheaper ones out there if u need insurance for going to petes, once u have your induction you get a map of the site and can go whenever you like

    We had a forum meet up there a few months ago on a Saturday, about 8 or so from the forum and throughout the day another 10 or so people were in and out.

    Will cost you £20 for your 1st visit, £10 for any after that and a fiver for an evening (not sure what times that is)

    SACS insurance is a lot cheaper than BASC.

    Reason - kept secret - worse kept amongst local Shooters ;)

    It's a Full Working Farm -

    Aware it's well used as the Only indoor Range Open to Accepted Shooters - Air Gunners Only - No FAC 's

    Aware many of my Club Members go there in week to set up Scopes etc

    Also has outside Target Areas -

    More suitable for a Few Friends - than a Forum Board Day Out - Space limits

    Its not bad there mate I normally have a laugh there ...its a good place to zero a scope and get to know ur rifle and distances ......iv always found people are nice and friendly there but you do get the odd serios target shooter types there that dont want to talk to you ...but even they come round after a while atb

    My 10 year old son and I have just started going there. We are both new to the sport and have had nothing but positive experiences there. Pete is welcoming and othre shooters tend to be helpful.
