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.

  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.

shooting partner exchange near Edinburgh?

    Hi,
    I'm quite new to air-rifling (ish). It' something I've done a lot of before, but it's been quite a while and most of the interim has been with shotguns.

    Because I live in the centre I decided to get back in to air rifling, so I dusted off one old rifle and bought a new one. I've managed to get shooting at a plant nursery - but sadly it's not great. There are about 3 rabbits and about 30 skittish blacks. Both are a pain to get for different reasons, but it would be great if there was someone who could give me a hand, especially if they had somewhere with a rabbit problem and needed someone to give them a hand too.....

    I know I've not got a huge amount to offer, and I'll be honest, I'd rather be shooting rabbits than crows. But crows are the problem here and I'd like to get them sorted in the hope that it'll lead to a good reference and hopefully a bunny opportunity.

    I also know that if I really want to nail the blacks I'll need decoys and hides etc. So if you're able to help me out with that I'd appreciate it too.

    Reply or send me a PM, and happy hunting to all you lucky sods that snaffled the golf courses!

    Hello mate,

    Edinburghs not too far from me (about 1.5hrs). If it helps you out I'll come up and have a go with you some day. Not much to return I'm afraid, I've got less bunnies than you!

    Pm me and maybe we can sort something out...?

    Nick

    Cheers, I've extended my search area for up to an hours drive in all directions. I don't really want to have to drive that far, but if the shootings good it should be worth it.

    Nicksi let me know if you're up this way and you can come along one evening. I could do with another brain to put to it. This is starting to go beyond challenging and far in to annoying. In fact very tempted just to buy some fenns and some larsens and sort it out that way.

    Matt

    Why are the crows there? What are they feeding on? In my experience if you get a few of them the rest soon learn it ain't a safe place to come and move elsewhere. Instead of investing in a hide is there some old scrub you could use to improvise a hide? I built one the other week with some old fallen branches - works a treat.

    Cheers for the invite, we'll sort something out. Keep us posted on how you get on!:up:

    They just seem to enjoy pulling all the saplings out. Don't know why - I think they must eat the insects in the roots or something. Very little cover on site unfortunately, it's all planters and gravel. There are two trees that they like, it's just getting cover in the right place to be able to shoot at them. And of course you can guarantee that if you're in one hide they'll be at the other tree :D

    Popping out in an hour (my shooting rights start at 7). And then I'll pop back early tomorrow as well and set up before light.
