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.

    So i have spent many hours in my garden, shooting tin cans at 30 yards, but not only is that now boring for me, its boring for my utube vids. I brought a poundland spirit level the other day and will try breaking the glass with my rifle, but what other ideas do you have?? I want something more.... Reactive. Ive shot at chalk targets but they get boring too.

    Please note: i want to spend very little if anything on these targets

    Thanks

    The really small fizzy pop cans are great once shaken up:)

    I liked to shoot old pop bottle lids also,nut the best is a bag of pound land toy soilders all set out on the rockery!

    Use your imagination scrape little trenches for them and only reveal head shots on some,place behind stones and you can have hours of fun living the dream lol.kids love it,and big kids;)

    You might be able to drop a mentos mint crumb in a bottle of diet coke and get the lid back on before it explodes.

    Then shoot it (at a distance). Should be very volatile when a slug pierces it.

    I'd like to shoot one of those horrible piñata donkeys that you get at children's parties with a 12 bore. It would look good blown to bits with sweets all over the floor.

    Just a word of warning about shooting pop bottles and cans under pressure. If the pellet doesn't strike true it may come back at you quicker than it went. Even at around 20 yds it still has enough energy to smart a little when it makes contact.

    I remember when I was a child wandering, bored in my parents garden with my air rifle. Came across a golf ball and shot it close on point blank range then stood like a lemon because I realised the ricochet had taken a chunk out the side of my ear and I had no idea what to do next.

    If you have a nespresso coffee machine don't chuck the pods when they're empty. Shoot them and because of the pressure as the pellet goes through, they burst, often flying up in the air. As an added bonus they're aluminium so you get a nice entry and exit 'wound' to examine after, and the coffee grounds are good for the garden. Good jog they have two uses, as they're bloody expensive just for coffee !
