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.

    Just that really.
    What facilities, shooting environment, etc do you feel are essential or preferred or even wished for.?
    And how much would you expect to pay for them?

    A plinking range with targets at 5yd intervals from 8-45yds.
    A friendly, helpful bunch of fellow shooters.
    A varied landscape so that targets can be placed in challenging positions, up trees for example.
    A course setter that likes to make things awkward.
    Targets re-painted for every day that the club is open
    A car park of sorts.
    Toilets.
    Anything else is a bonus.
    Our fees are about right, http://lincs-hft-club.co.uk/

    This about sums up Worcester Air Rifles. The toilets only a portaloo so that's stretching things maybe.

    What Nick says. ;)

    He forgot the cafe/restaurant and outdoor lighting so that the target range can be shot in the dark. Covered plinking and zeroing range points with access for the disabled also.

    ;)

    a 55 yrd zero range, ideally undercover with at leased 1 bench

    men and ladies loos, think this may drop under H&S? on one site i was working the h&s inspector made us have hot running water in the porter loo

    a nice woodland area big enough to set courses at 3-4 different locations to make a change from shooting the same setup every time

    course moved every 4 weeks, if a guy goes once a week and shoots the course twice thats 8 times the same course has been shot a month, enough to get bored

    targets painted once a week minimum

    a hut/cabin that has a kettle in

    price 40-60£ per year

    Thanks for the input
    I'm not sure what I'm after, a cheap place to shoot relaxed atmosphere and a bit of banter no pressure to "compete"
    Jackal, are there shooting fees on top or that 250 quid?
    I'm not sure I'd want golf club feel to it though

    For £250 squid I'd expect top notch shooting facilities and a massage from a topless 20 yr old good looking female and a kebab after. ;)
