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.

    Hi All

    I live in Telford, Priorslee and Im looking for some land to go shooting on any ideas on where to look? I have tried a lot of the farms but they seem to either do pest control themselves or there friends are doing it. It really is hard to find land which doesn't have anyone already covering it at the moment.

    Thanks all

    Hi mate,

    Not too far from you!
    The only advise I can offer is just keep trying and keep knocking doors. Try going a little further afield too - Newport, Shifnal, Tong, Albrighton, around those areas out of the town a bit.

    Good luck! :)

    As Steve0_R10 recommends. Some good tips there. Try anyone or any company with a bit of land.
    I found farmers to be the least successful because they are mostly taken care of when it comes to pest control.
    With companies my best permission came from a contact form on their website. I filled in the contact form and sent in a polite request regarding pest control and had no reply after a week. I then looked up the CEO on http://www.ceoemail.com/index2.php and dropped him a polite email. It was like throwing a firework in the chicken shed. Turns out they had a neighbouring Farmer sueing them for crop damage by Rabbits breeding on the company land. Not only did I get the permission from the Company but the Farmer next door too. The Farmer shoots rabbits too but bunnies know him and his 12 guage. He initially laughed when I said air rifle and night vision. Not now ;)

    I would like to point out that I have never thrown a firework in a chicken shed.

    What about all the local football clubs? I am thinking about their training grounds. Large posh public schools too.
