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.

    Good morning people, if i could just pick your brains a little. I am after a new chrony and looking to spend around the £100 limit, a bit above, a bit below. I had a Chromby before and shot it up a little but it still work all the same. but they only work with barrels and mods and not most multi pumps and Co2 fun guns for example. Could any one tell me from their personel opinion which is a good chrony which takes setting up and performance in to account, i can buy LED lights from the pound shop for illumination as i'm aware of that problem with most of them. I really would appreciate all opinions and thank you in advance, i have to go now the family is calling. Bye

    I have an F1 (around a ton) and am generally pleased with it.. it can be used at range providing you can put the pellets through both 1" wide sensor bands.

    It won't be great indoors and can be a little iffy outside, depending on the light - you have to ensure that the sensors don't see direct sunlight as this can affect the readings. You may want to look at incadesent light sources as I believe LEDs still flicker and can hence still upset the sensors..

    I'd strongly advise that you make a polycarb guard for the front (if using it at range) and a rifle rest to ensure correct alignment if using the chrony at the muzzle. We all start off with the best of intentions, but without proper precautions the chrony usually ends up getting shot in the end!

    If you want the daddy for indoor testing it'll be a Skan - these are around £200 though..

    +1 Pro chrono digital you can get a cd and cable for it and link it to your laptop or pc
    It holds 10 strings of shots and gives you the high low and average and spread .
    So no need to write down every shot like some others.

    If you are testing PCP rifles only then this is ideal!

    http://www.combro.biz/

    I have use one for years. It is as accurate as anything twice, thrice or even more times in cost, the back up service is legendary and they are British after all!

    Thanks gentlemen, i'm going to try and get a Pro Chrony if i can. I've had a Mk IV Combro before and i agree they are really amazing chronys for the money, i did clip it testing a multi pump though it still worked fine after. Looking at some reviews the Pro Chrony looks a lot less fussy about lighting than the F1 and has a wider sensor aswell, but it does seem a bit swings and roundabouts with these things. The sooner i get another one i can get back to my laboratry and create my 12 ft/lb Relum i have always dreamed about:rolleyes:, thanks again and all the best.
