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.

    Hello all,

    As I am new at this forum and just got my HW30s from Reevo17, I would like to ask is there any shooting range you can recommend in Leicester (or nearby)?

    I don't have any scope at the moment so probably I will be interested in 10 - 15m shooting.

    Any recommendations for a newbie ?

    Thanks,
    Bart

    Couple of options in Loughborough, depending on which side of Leicester you are based.

    Kibworth is good, plus a good shop, and the cafe does a great breakfast

    Compared to Kibworth and the like, Loughboroughs offerings are very basic. Obviously the price reflects this, depends what you are after.
    If I remember rightly, one that I visited was £25 annually and £1 a visit thereafter.

    Just looking for a place where I can try my air rifle on 10m maybe 15m range.

    Last time I was shooting was around 2007 so probably hitting a beer can from 10m distance will be a huge success.

    I’ve heard of all the ones mentioned above with high praise, not visited though obviously being all the way down here.

    Perhaps the cheapest of them to start with so you can have a go, and you may prefer indoor if poss to give you a better chance.

    Wherever you go, have fun with the 30, it’s a great little rifle.

    Kibworth is a good range but the prices have recently gone up quite a bit, from £5 to £8 a visit for members and probably about £11 for non members if they have kept the difference the same as it was last year.

    You will need a proper target as shooting at non sanctioned targets come frowned upon so cans are out. However the ranges are good and offer oportunities to plink at the clubs knock downs out to 70 yards so you can play to your hearts content.

    PS the charge is per visit so you can shoot all day for that and the cafe does a decent butty if needed.

    Hi there,

    Just visited Thurlaston Airgun & Archery Centre and had a really good time there!

    Admission is £6 per day and they offer indoor shooting range for pistols (10m), target shooting i think up to 100yards and some field targets.


    Definitely I need a scope as I struggle to hit last two targets there.
