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.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    My garden is 85 yards long, but we often use the main lawn and set up targets at about 40 yards, I like it because i'm not good at killing things, although I do enjoy shooting Steve's gun, so we often set up targets on a Saturday, I have 3 big sheds side by side at the bottom that absorb the pellets when they go through the targets, so it's safe and fun :):up:

    I don't really need a range in my garden, I have a portable range kit.....

    Paper targets.
    Drawing pins.
    Lengths of string (20/30/40/50yds)

    Pin the target on a tree, pin the string on lower down, then walk in a straight line until you get to the end of the length of string.

    Ta-da!

    its probably best to zero in private, sometimes the farmer may not understand what you are doing, they may also be miffed as the point of you shooting there is to shoot some rabbits(or whatever)

    its also better as you can move stuff as a bench rest:)

    well if you zero a 177 running at 11.5 fpe with medium weight pellets at 12 yards it will come in again about 40 yards . you must be putting pellet on pellet at 12 yards .you shouldnt have to need to move the windage adjustment . you can check for cross over using this method . a 22 zeroed in at 9 yards should come back in at about 35 yards . you can make fine adjustment to elevation to get you favoured secondary zero but you should not have to use windage un less cross over occurs

    mine comes in at 8.1 yards acording to the BRC system.:)

    i just zero it at 30 yds.

    that way those funny complicated words dont hurt me.

    (adjustment to elevation to get you favoured secondary zero but you should not have to use windage un less cross over occurs)

    that part hurts brain :wave:

    just messing, cheers for that, need to put my BSA back into its zero but zeroing a springer at a distance is quite hard:)

    I was in the same position as Andy up until last year, now got a 42 yard garden after moving house(double my mortgage). I can get about 48 if I shoot down the side of the house. As for a target range I made an A4 size box about 6 inchs deep with a 4 millimetre steel back and 4mm foamex on the front. I just stick A4 targets on the foamex or Birchwood Casey stick on jobs.
