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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Been to the range today instead of tomorrow just in case the weather turns a bit crap, what a fabulous day up there and it was rather quiet too! I know Sundays are busy but this was really nice so I got the camera out and shot a few piccies.

    A quick zero check before shooting the FT course with my Daystate Huntsman


    I only shot half the FT course because I was fannying around with the camera and my wife was starting to get a bit annoyed with my fannying around, she was also hungry and thirsty! A quick refuel, then onto the pistol range.


    With the Dan Wesson 715


    Then I had a go with my Weihrauch HW95k, my wife sais earlier it wasn't shooting as well as she was expecting, so I achieved this 5 shot group with a front bag and military hold at 35 yards....


    The rifle that shot the group....


    All in all, a super day out :thumb:

    Time on the range is the best, you won't ever get a better day out in my opinion. I could have gone to another club and shoot smallbore & fullbore gallery rifle today, but elected to shoot airguns instead. Came home with a huge smile on my face :)

    She has her own rimfire rifle as she is a FAC holder in her own right.... I don't shoot clays much because she beats me every time and it's a long onerous drive listening to her brag all the way home! I don't brag when I beat her with the rifle every time.

    Thanks very much :) I do like to document my shooting and share with the world in the hope that they see it as the sport that it is, rather than the horror stories continually spewed by the press.

    I know exactly what you mean, I've been clay shooting today (which i love) and it's off to the rifle range in the morning with a .22lr and a .177 air rifle and i have to say i get more enjoyment and satisfaction shooting my R10 than i do with my CZ 455.
