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.

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.

    If any of you live locally and enjoy shooting you should definitely try some HFT at WAR. Everyone is really friendly and the atmosphere is nice and relaxed, which results in a very enjoyable mornings shooting and for only £6. I went for my first time today and I shall certainly be going back again next sunday, I was given some nice shooting advice and really enjoyed myself. The course itself is changed every time so it will never get boring and many challenging shots arise. I came home with a score of 41 which for my first time I am very pleased with, especially on such a windy day(excuses, excuses). Again I can't recommend Worcester air rifles any more for a challenging and entertaining mornings shooting surrounded by like minded people who all share a passion for shooting.

    Alex, you did very well today, great opening score in difficult windy conditions. Keep an eye on the place over the next few weeks, there are some big competitions coming up which provide the full 30 target layout. Again, well done.

    I have been to furnace mill before but they don't rearrange the targets so It get boring after a few visits, I'm not saying that furnace Mill isn't a great site because it is, but they need to rearrange the targets.

    Hi mate, cheers, I was pretty happy with my score today all thanks to various advice during the day (thanks all). What gun were you using today, that way I can recognise you. Also are you going next Sunday if so I'll see you there because I'm addicted to this sport.

    That's easy, I was the good looking bloke with the AA S400 with adjustable stock (blonde geezer with 1000 yard stare).

    They put on 30 if there's enough people turn up to help or they put 15 targets up and you go around twice. Competitions are always 30. Every week the course changes so its never the same twice, that's why it needs the help of those who turn up.

    I'm looking to join up once i get settled in, my friend is already a member. Just broke the bank on my rig so i will want to get the most from it, used to helping at my archery club , so i don't mind lending a hand if it means 30 targets can go out.

    Over the next few weeks I will be helping out on the Saturdays preceding the Sunday competitions so that shooters can just turn up on the day and tuck into bacon sarnies from the burger van without worrying about building up a sweat putting out the targets. I admit that I do enjoy watching Johnny Smith set the course out and it just makes the competitions flow that bit more. Hard work though and it needs volunteers.

    Like i say if help is needed i can do it, if you haven't already I'd put the feelers out on a club day for help.
