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.'

  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.

    C02 pistols and a hallway found in most homes are your friend.
    No substitute for real air rifles though but certainly scratch that itch.
    Oh and ensure nobody is going to pop out of a doorway whilst shooting.
    Usual safety rules apply of course.
    My little collection of c02 pistols has scratched my shooting itch many a time.
    You only need 6 to 10 yards.
    Backstop is large cardboard box rammed with old towels and denim jeans then fully covered in packaging tape, cellotape targets to it, hours of fun.

    Yep, I have my indoor self made range up to 10m for my co2 airguns. Ideal on the wet and windy nights. :thumb:

    The beauty of C02 pistols is that you can shoot safely indoors providing usual safety precautions are taken.
    No substitute for the range or your regular permission but great fun.
    I think that between myself and Wild bill we've just cost you a few £££, one is never enough.

    Alternatively, if you don't want to invest in a decent C02 pistol and the additional costs of running one (C02) grab yourself a Beeman P17, perfect for indoor use, same as a HW40, very quiet.

    Join a local indoor club (if you have one) . Our range is a bit chilly this time of year but it's dry :up:

    Yes, also a great idea, i use local indoor ranges, however depending on the OP's locality to his nearest indoor range a nice C02 pistol or similar can still scratch that shooting itch.
    My nearest is about an hour round trip.
    I can have an hours shooting fun without leaving the house some days.

    Agreed, if no guns involved, you can't beat shooting on a wet evening...

    Yeah, not really got a local one, contacted "Dartmoor Marksmen" once with a view to joining but was told they were at full capacity at the time, they took my details though and said they'd contact me in the new year when they knew what the subscriptions were going to be, that was about 5yrs ago now, still haven't heard anything... :confused:

    All my evenings usually consist of cooking for the family and a beer/whisky or two;)

    Though I have lately found myself in the local indoor range a couple of evenings a week which is superb.

    While we have no Blackthorn here locally here in the States(sigh), I' ve found a proper size & cured piece of Plum branch here in the orchard... So I've set about whittling/ carving an artsy crafty shooting stick. A few nips of Brandy... a little carve... repeat as necessary.

    Our club has an indoor and outdoor that can be used in any weather, the outside range (55 yds) is also lit, great club great people. Meon Valley airgun Club.

    It's right out in the khudds so the drive there is nice too.

    I refuse to answer on the grounds that I may incriminate myself. I will say that it has nothing to do with sorting, washing and lubing pellets...

    It doesn't involve the use of a stirrup pump or scuba gear either... :D
