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.

    '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.

    Completed the bell target yesterday so spent the good lighting of this morning getting some pictures! I had hoped to shoot the target tonight, by candlelight as is traditional, but despite there being no wind it was simply too cold. I was frozen before I got the gun out of her box.... so came in to thaw out in front of the fire! Pictures next time I manage to shoot.

    Neil Thorneycroft, who won the FT springer class is one of our members and he has said it has given him at least 2 points per round.

    :) Sounds nice getting a couple more of points if possible. But it would be nice to shoot another style of shooting & maybe learn some new techniques what might help me out in some other shooting styles.
    There's a couple of people from Kingsley HFT who shoot bell targets all ready, Steve Brindley who I believe shoots with you at times is one of them.

    Yes, Steve is a regular club member... way down the pecking order mind! :D

    When things get back to more normal, you should come and visit one night, it won't cost you anything other than the odd beer.

    :laff: Wait till I see Steve next.... & here's me thinking that he's a good shot taking them all standing & using a springer MOSTLY ;)

    I will 100% call in & have a go, I might have to borrow a rifle if possible as all mine are 12 ft lbs ones with scopes fitted.
    & I will get the j2o's in as I don't drink booze these days :eek::rolleyes: Much prefer to remember things,,, if I can do that is.

    That is the norm. We have a club rifle, a T200 but members are always happy for visitors to use their rifles, with sympathy for the old girls. Most regular airgun shooters cannot believe how light the triggers are. What they consider is the first stage has just broken the linkage! If you can feel the trigger blade on your finger, you have already taken up the first stage on mine!

    Oh, you can drink juice if you like, Pedigree for me please!

    Nice one, Simon.

    Although, at that distance, I reckon even I might be able to hit the bell - without the sights. :D :thumb:
