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.

  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.

    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

    Darren and I started out at Rough Wedge Air Rifle Club - which is still here despite no web site or official Facebook page.

    I would like to remind everyone that although they don't do competitions, they're still here, still offering a safe , relaxed place to enjoy air gunning.

    Dennis has since retired and the club is still run by pretty much the same team.
    Namely Fran and Richard who are as welcoming as ever.

    They put a 15 lane, deciduous woodland course out come rain or shine.

    Great for every shooting style from sitting on a stool with sticks, standing, kneeling, freestyle FT or HFT.

    Open 9am to 1pm every Sunday

    It's still just £3 to shoot

    They've a plink/zero range going out to 55 yards. Today ranges were 17.5yards out to 45yards for example.

    Bring a mug and you can help yourself to a FREE tea or coffee

    I was there this morning it was a challenging course in the wind and rain. It’s the best £3 you’ll spend on shooting and always a friendly and knowledgeable crowd.

    Shame as it's literally a mile from me bit I'm more geared up to plinking.
    Still see you have a good turn out up there whenever I've driven past and hopefully I'll come up and have a shoot at some point soon :thumb:

    Always a good selection of targets out on the plinking/zero range and there’s no pressure to move on and do the course. Folks can and do just enjoy plinking in there mate so it’s worth a look.

    Yep I agree as I’ve joined Blackbrook too, it’s great to have somewhere open in the week but don’t forget they are closed Tuesdays.

    This was my first ever Airgun Club that I went too.

    Was unsure what to expect especially as I had my Jackal with me.

    I was welcomed and would go every weekend and I loved it there.

    The courses would be laid out completely different, so you were always tested and the course was always well thought out.

    Not been there for a good few years, but glad to see/here that it is still going

    I should put round again really

    Regards
    Paddy

    No joining necessary

    Just nice to go back 'old skool' the woods are pretty sheltered so after a demoralizing time at Blackbrook or Millride, it's nice to hit something!

    Good for practicing standers too.
