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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Big question and an even bigger answer. The rules vary from discipline to discipline and from area to area depending on which "body" thinks it's the "governing body".

    Take bench rest as an example, you'd think that was straightforward enough. Well, the NSRA has a set of rules which many counties follow. Their version of BR can be shot over various distances starting at 15 yards and the roundel size and ring width varies with the range. They also have rules about the design of the support, and you can use any scope you like. All rifles are equal and airguns compete alongside rimfire.

    Then take UKBR22. Their rules divide the entrants into about five categories depending on the power of the scope and the weight of the rig, and as far as I am aware their minimum target distance is 25 yards. Their target card is quite different as it has sighter roundels built in to the card.

    That's just two flavours of one discipline and there are plenty more.

    Thanks for the response everyone, I'm just trying to add to my garden plinking ideas, I even now catch the Mrs with the Crossman 760 pump master and occasionally with my air pistol plinking the various target in the garden. We used to go out clay shooting together but due to cost now we struggle to do this regularly so may be getting her to visit the local airgun club may be an alternative.

    There are many disciplines in this so also many different targets, but don't get hung up on them, the more you practice with anything the better you get, so it's a transferable skill.

    Currently there is a 20yrd BR comp being run by @Wofty here: https://www.airgunforum.co.uk/community/index.php?threads/agf-benchrest-20.284470/ you can download and print the targets he made up if you want a bit of practice, or alternatively you can print a load off here: https://www.airrifle.co.za/library/AA_Targets/ Just remember with both to get your printer setting right or they will not be as they should be ;)
