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.

    Evening Gents.

    Went out hunting for the first time today and bagged me a rabbit. First Blood! I went with a mate on his permission (1300 acres! And he lives on it. Jammy git) Anywho, he uses a bipod and has suggested I get one. However just a few questions.

    1) Can I fit one to a brocock hunter or will the lip at the end of the stock obstruct it. I know you can get the claw one that grips the barrel but I fancy something a bit more gucci.
    2) Is one that much use when hunting. I could see how it would be target shooting but I didnt really go prone that much.
    3) Is it going to be enough use to compensate for the difference in balance when shooting in a position other than prone.

    One more question, a little off topic but, I have been told I can get a multi shot conversion kit for the Brocock Hunter but can't seem to find one anywhere.

    Thanks guys

    This is an interesting post as I was going to ask near enough the same thing myself. While I can see great benefits of a bipod while in the prone position (Stability/Accuracy) is it really of much use to general "vermin shooters" like me who do most of their shooting in the standing position?
    Thoughts and replies would be most welcome gents!
    P.S. I am not trying to "hijack this thread" but it seems to be asking exactly the same as I was going to.

    Well if its for static shooting IE verry little moving around just ambushing then get three lengths of wood a long screw and a hose pipe.

    Make an X with 2 of the wood (I used thick bamboo) and put the screw through it.

    Then attack the 3rd length of wood to the hose pipe and put the hose pipe onto the screw giving you a tripod.

    I have a Standing sized one and a kneeling sitting sized one.

    Easy to make a prone one too.

    I will post picture's

    if you're shooting a springer then a fixed bipod will affect the "zero" of the rifle as it will recoil differently when prone, as opposed to when seated and not using the bipod.

    I opted for this for my HW97K as the gun essentially floats on it allowing adequate recoil whilst reducing movement hugely. I've had to trim the top off slightly so it's doesn't foul the barrel and have covered the underlever with tape tp protect it.

    if you're firing a PCP then there is no problem with one that clamps to either the sock or barrel rigidly and this is indeed my intent when I replace it with an S410 or so.

    I'll put some photos up tomorrow as I should be taking delivery of my new scope (Nikko Stirling Gameking 4-16 x 50 AO IR) tomorrow :up: - although I'm still waiting on a replacement trigger guard at the moment so shooting is still out at the moment :down:
