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.

  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 using a scrap piece of wood against the garden fence for plinking targets. As you can imagine, it got a bit tedious resetting it every now and then when it fell over, so I grabbed a few more scarp pieces and made the target area thicker and into a stand as well. Not bad for a few minutes work. And now it stays still!

    Cheers. Yeah will probably use that once the wood gets battered behind. Shouldn't be too bad now because there's about 3 inches thick behind the target now and some nice soft wood as well.

    I used to use wood ,but found a large log on end better as it was softer in end grain and much quieter when lead hit the spot. you know the big slabs of wood you stick a Xmas tree in to.
    But last few years I bought a few hessian sacks from fleebay and filled with sand ,no noise now as neighbours I'm sure get anxiousness over the loud thuds on wood and tin targets .no bouncing off either.

    Yeah I know where you're coming from there. To start with it used to make such a THWACK as the pellet hit the target but now it just sounds like someone fired a peashooter at it haha. Nice and muffled at the moment. Definitely take that into consideration though because there's LOADS of log ends in the firewood shed. Definitely consider the bags as well. Best thing about it at the moment though is I can just move it around the garden and it be freestanding nicely. Had too many ricochets when I only had a piece of Ply attached to the backboard so I've got some much softer pieces on top now to take the initial blow.

    As expected, had to go thicker because the thinner pine has taken a beating! Good job I've got plenty of scrap at hand. [​IMG][​IMG]
