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.

  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.

    Can you adjust eye relief on a scope?

    I've got a pistol scope, and the eye relief was clearly set up for a t-rex to use!

    Your arms are too short to hold the pistol far enough away.:D

    Other way round mate. My arms are too long, the scope seems to be set up for a child!

    I would think it impossible to alter the eye relief without changing lenses. Are you sure it's a pistol scope and not a long eye relief rifle scope? I have no direct experience of pistol scopes but I expect that they would be not sensitive to eye relief and usable at arms length, if not then it's not going to be much use.

    It's definitely a pistol scope Terry.
    It's not massively out, my arms appear to be about 3" too long! :) Luckily, it's not that sensitive, and at full extension the crosshairs seem to wander a little more than if i bring it the 3" closer. I can live with it.

    I dont think you can alter the eye relief on a scope but i could be wrong.

    I have looked through 2 pistol scopes, an AGS 2x20 and a Weihrauch 2x20 and neither of them could be held at arms length.

    It seems like you have to bend your arms slightly to be able to use them and the longer the arms the more you have to bend them.

    I suppose they are designed this way because a long armed person can bend their arms whereas a short person can not extend theirs.

    Not everyone is built like an ape :)
    You could try one of the 2 handed stances where both arms are slightly bent (standing side on to the target). With a full bore pistol this soaks up some of the recoil and the grip is designed to get you back on target quicker

    Yeah, I've fired proper pistols a lot in my past life. I'm using the standard two handed stance, still not close enough. If I was standing in the proper target pistol shooter stance, it'd be even further out!
    And less of the ape comments :p

    take it there's no room to adjust scope mounts rearwards on pistol + scope rearwards in mount.

    As before try and adjust the mounts that may help that's if you've not tried already

    Couldn't agree more. I think that they should be made with eye relief just right for ME (and anybody else of a normal ape-like build) and all vertically challenged underdeveloped people should buy scope mounts that reach forward extending the scope past the muzzle of the gun.

    I realise that this view might come off as a bit self-important, politically incorrect and arrogant but if Clarkson does go (and i hope he doesn't), I would like to put myself forward for the job!!

    Damn! :(

    On the plus side, sorted the eye relief, you just wind the back further in! Same as adjusting the cross hair focus on a normal scope! :)
