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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Hi, mate at the range has just got one of these and wants me to set it up for him.

    The software listed on their website, comes up with a 404 (webpage no longer exists or error).

    Does anyone know what software works with this chrono and where to get it (preferably free)?

    Also it appears these chronos don't give you the power output, so you have to use a converter.

    Thanx

    So I tested the air force one today, (for a friend from the range), the instructions are a bit basic, and from what I can gather it only calculates pellet speed, it does not even ask for pellet weight, so to work out gun power you have to use an online converter, eg: http://extorian.co.uk/shooting/pellets.html or similar.

    The aperture you shoot through is SMALL! its about a quarter of the size of the Air Chrony, see pic... so you need to really make sure you are aiming correctly.

    I did not get any errors, but I made sure the guns end of barrel was at least 6" (150mm) from the aperture, as recommended by the instructions.
    It can remember up to 50 shots.
    It has a built in rechargeable battery, and comes with a usb power lead and a usb data cable...

    I compared the results of the AF1 with my own Air Chrony and they were pretty much the same, so it seems accurate enough.

    The website referred to on the instructions gives an error, so cannot download their software?
    I tried it with the Combro "pellet" program and also the Air Chrony software, but neither seemed to work with the AF1?

    I suppose the one good thing going for it is that its SMALL, so easy to carry, store, etc and it seems accurate, just a pain that it has no software and you have to use a 3rd party calculator to work out power!

    I've been looking at the AF1 myself.
    I'm a bit put off by the aperture size.

    Its very small mate, the Air chrony aperture is not big by any standards, but the AF1 aperture is about 1/3rd, maybe even a 1/4 of the size, so its tight, would be very easy to damage it if you are not very careful.

    Looks like it needs a bit of clear plastic tube stuck on the front as a guide
