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.

    Have seen a post recommending an app for calculating/converting data from a muzzle velocity meter I've ordered off eBay (note to self copy and paste info next time). Thanks in advance

    Hi mate. I hope this helps you?
    I have one of the Chinese chronos. I downloaded an app for converting ballistic energy etc. The only problem I discovered was that when you enter your pellet weight in grains.....it will let you type in the exact weight ie: JSB RS 13,43 grains.....then your MPS....and then your chosen measurement (ft lbs)...
    But when it gives you the final result, it always rounds the grains down. (13,43 to straight 13).
    I dont use it now after learning from other members that it can make a big difference to the true reading.
    The best and most accurate way is to convert MPS----FPS on Google. Write it down and enter it in the pyramid air converter. It's actually quicker to do this method than use the app. And it's a spot on accurate total of the energy. For instance......RS 191 mps ----- 626.64 fps = 11.71 ft lbs. It's that accurate mate. Hope this helps bud. It works for me as a complete novice.
    All the best
    Walter

    Hi ya Carl. I've just clicked on your link mate. That's not the one I downloaded. I had a different one. I'm interested though mate?
    Does this one allow you to enter the exact grain weight, and give you the result without rounding the weight down to the largest number?
    Hope all good your end mate.
    Cheers
    Walter

    Cheers for that Carl. I'm gonna get the app now. I think I must have installed the wrong one in the first place by the sound of it.
    Thankyou.

    You're more than welcome mate. Until I joined the forum 5/6 weeks ago....I knew absolutely nothing about air rifles and any accessories etc. And I mean a BIG FAT ZERO! There is so much to learn and understand. It's great. I've learnt a lot on paper, but only put some of the stuff I've learnt into practice so far. I've got a long , long way to go yet for sure. Some clever and skilled people on here. And they all like to help. I'm glad I maybe helped you in some way my friend. That's what it's all about.
    All the best.
    Walter

    Thanks and hopefully we can all keep sharing and learning. World of airguns and shooting has moved on a fair bit since I last shot a rifle, they've invented the internet now.

    Lol. For sure mate. I've had the odd air rifle here and there since I was a lad. But thought nothing of them to be fair. Until I joined on here to ask for a bit of help and advice. Not been off it since! Great stuff.
    Cheers my friend.

    I use the one from the Krale site. It's the most comprehensive of all the one's I've found and despite that it's nice and clearly laid out making it so simple to use :

    https://www.krale.shop/en/airgun-calculator

    Give it a go and let me know what you think guys.

    Just checked this one out mate. I've gotta be honest .......its the best I've seen so far. No messing about with conversions before hand. It's all there. And it's even more accurate! I know I dont need to know a two figure number followed by another ten digits......but that's not the point. The point is its simplicity .
    I just put in one of my readings from a while ago when experimenting with different pellets. SUPERDOME. 22........
    I'll be using this one for sure.
    Cheers mate. Nice one.
    Walter

    No brainer mate..? I got used to converting the mps from the Chinese chrono to fps......then on to another converter for the result. No problem. Got used to it. But this is definitely the one I reckon. For sure mate. All there on one screen. Simples.
    Goodn .
