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.

    '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 need to research this Simon - do you shoot a target?

    As for dry fire - something I’m guilty of not doing… :(

    Totally agree. The problem I have is that to dry fire my AP20 the cocking lever needs to be in the vertical position and it's right next to the rear sight. Very distracting!

    No, I use it as part of dry fire training, shoot at a dot aiming mark, it records the movement of the pistol in the last few milliseconds, this is what would drive your score if you were shooting at a target anyway. You can use it and shoot a target at the same time as well.

    No, that would totally defeat the purpose of dry fire training ;-)

    Does it? I thought they were like the Steyr, where you cocked it and then put down but not locked over?

    Unfortunately not. If you put it too far down it still discharges air even though the breech is open

    Well that’s disappointing, and yes sticking up alongside the sights is going to be distracting.

    Well thank you @Inca for the idea, the stamp and ink pad turned up today, think I might need some inkier ink, but looks good enough for training, once I’ve finished my 50 dry fire shots that is! 95427517-0051-416D-A979-788D535CDCD2.jpeg

    5 targets for the price of 1, what’s not to like. Have you tried TargetScan with them yet?

    Just chucked 5 down the range to see. It does struggle to find the aiming points, maybe with a more solid print once I’ve got an ink top up it will be a bit easier. From the picture you can see the reference point it’s using so should be ok if I wanted to keep records of training shoots. Oh and need to move the sights 3 clicks ;-)

    I like this chaps… the NSRA 10m card is very good - I might look for a solid circle stamp to use with my rifle on the peep
