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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    I live in cardiff and looking for places to go shooting. I'm ideally looking for permissions or to tag along with somebody who has already got a permission, I'm insured with BASC. Alternatively, what ranges are good. Many thanks

    I asked the same thing a while ago, you are much better located for ranges etc than i am, everything is 40+ miles away from me as im about as west as you can go, a quick google search will help, as for permissions they are very hard to come by, i may have one coming my way but its a case of getting out there, ive had so many No's, meeting people and asking is the best way, if you dont ask you dont get!

    Several HFT facilities about. I drive from Newport to Castleton to go to a plinking club in a village hall since that's about my speed. Might try HFT if I get a job and can afford more kit.

    You have several air rifle clubs in the South Wales area:
    Nelson FTC
    Quarry HFT and FTC
    Treetops
    Tondu FTC
    Castleton FTC is at St Mellons - you can't get much closer than that:)
    I understand that there is a shooting club in the tunnels at Barry, but that's all I can remember.
    If you do a search on here you will find more information, along with Google for addresses.
    With regard to getting shooting permissions, as already said, you need to visit and ask. Mine came from talking to people at a garden centre out in the sticks, if they look like a farmer they probably are.

    I think I pass Treetops on the way to Castleton. Doesn't say much about pricing on their website, how are you supposed to decide if you're going to bother checking it out or not?

    I've shot there several times (not recently) for HFT competitions and found it to be a challenging course in beautiful surroundings.
    Whether it is your cup of tea, only you can tell.
    Let us know if you do go.

    Been to treetops, what a load of rubbish, literally !
    The place is a right mess, very boggy, kids toys used as targets and smashed up all over the place, rubbish everywhere and empty alcohol cans and other cans all over the target area.
    the backboard for the targets are also very tired indeed, and they are falling apart . Knock down targets don't work properly and just a general shithole. I would not recommend it atall. Very poor standards !
