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.

Advice shots crossing my permission

    I have a nice little permission 10 mins from home on a little poultry farm that has a few sheep fields too, tonight I have been out and returned with a single bunny due to a bloke in the neighboring wood shooting on to said sheep fields. I haven't seen this person but heard them their dog the crack of the gun and whizz of pellet past me. My permission is to reduce rabbit numbers and kill all crows Maggie's and pigeons as they take all the poultry feed.
    Question is how do I deal with this other than telling the farmer which I have done? I was on the fields on Saturday and bagged up plenty but tonight the sheep were spooked, rabbits were shying away and no birds were anywhere close. Im pretty annoyed cos its my first permission that I worked really hard learning to shoot properly and sorting insurance prior to asking.

    Did the farmer say there is someone else with permission? If so, see if he can put you in touch with them so you can arrange to not cross paths or go shooting together?
    If the farmer has said there is no one else with permission, then I would imagine the best thing to do if it happens again is report to the police? If he is shooting there illegally then he is one of the reasons that people think badly of airgunners and why it gets harder and harder to get permission from landowners.
    Either way, whoever they are clearly are not shooting safely if they are not checking where they are shooting if pellets are whizzing past you.

    I have Shared permissions - always come to a arrangement with other parties

    So there is Only one of us Shooting @ Time

    If not your Farmers is it someone on the next property ?

    Im the only one with permission on the farm. This is someone firing from a wood on neighboring land onto the land im on. I couldn't see the person only hear them as the wood is on a hill side overlooking the land running down to the boundary wall. If that makes sense.

    Do you know who owns the neighbouring property? If you can, find out and ask them to let whoever they have shooting know that their pellets are overshooting (no pun intended) their boundaries. Was it just one pellet? If so hopefully it was an unfortunate one off. If it wasn't and they are careless then the landowner needs to know and stop them shooting there. Or if again they do not have permission to be there, they need reporting.

    If the pellets are leaving a neighbouring property & going onto the one you are on, then yes, they are shooting illegally. Not to mention the clear lack of the basics of safe shooting exhibited by this unknown person.
    I would be inclined to try all avenues to sort it out informally before I got the Police involved though.
