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 only noticed because I was looking a 10x44 the other day and I am sure it has slats.

    They are lovely bits of kit.

    I had looked at them as well.. And I still didn't notice! :facepalm:. Decided that the fixed 10x wasn't really suited to me ;). I can fully recommend the quality though buddy if you're thinking of one... The reticles are super slick as well

    For me 10x is ideal. What I shoot at 99% of the time is exactly 20 yards away and doesn't move. I currently use 9x. I need a tad more but not much; I shoot with my weaker eye for various reasons.

    Ah okay, makes sense :D. Are you using a 3-9x on full magnification just now? I do have my 3-12 set on 10x by the way.. But I just like having the option to decrease as well. I favour 6x for hunting :up:

    Yes. I am using a Hawke Vantage. There was no point in getting some all singing and dancing 2-26x56 SF FFP mega scope. But if I were out and about the Vantage wouldn't be enough scope for me.

    But a p15, stripped and rebuilt it sub12 :D Its shooting very consistent at 11.1, polishing barrel today and sorting trigger, Darko mags arrived today so a good ole pellet test this weekend, its a world away from my Rapids but Im feeling it and it could just be the best ratting tool ever.

    Picked up my new Artemis P15 in .25 (sub 12fpe). Had the itch for a while now to try this calibre for short range pest control, greys and rats. I’ve added a few 3D printed parts already (weaver rail, cheek piece, adjustable butt pad and biathlon type handle) and a new Hawke 30 sf compact 3-12 x 40.

    The gun is really quiet and I believe this is because the metal cups used as baffles in the shroud are a one size fits all approach for all the P15 calibres therefore fine for the .25 but too much air escapes on the .177 and .22 .

    The 3D printer cheek piece and adjustable butt pad have really helped me achieve the pellet on pellet accuracy I need for my intended zero range of 20 yards.

    Overall I’m very impressed with my new gun.

    Just need a suitable gun bag, any suggestions?

    Enjoy it bud, looking forward to hearing your impressions. :up:

    Despite all good intentions, some of the best birthday presents have been from myself. I think I've managed it again this year too. :D
