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.

    In case anyone doesn't know of this, it's free downloadable software which calculates the fall of the pellet, & gives you aim points for your scope. It works in just about the same way as the Hawke Ballistics Software.

    It allows you to compare pellets by selecting them off a list, & then it compares the trajectory, & shows you where to aim for longer range targets. It even has a quick zero mode, where on impact of the pellet on your target, tells you how many clicks to move your scope.

    It's hard for me to explain, but try it for yourself.

    EDIT: Here is the original Chairgun 2 download if you don't like the now Hawke version.

    Does anybody know of any software that can be used to help range find with 30 / 30 scope. I've seen the small labels that can be created for mildot scopes and wondered if there is anything similar for 30/30. I know without having the dots its harder to gauge but anything at this stage would be a help to me.

    I know the 30/30 reticule means that in the thin centre lines, something 30"X30" @ 100yds would fit in this little section perfectly. But an animal you hunt with an airgun is not likely to have a feature measuring 30", bar Deer but full-bores are for that.

    Obviously by common sense, something measuring 15" @ 100yds would take up only half of the centre part, & @ 50yd something 15" would take up a full centre line. ie. A large crow (15") @ 50yds would be fit perfectly in the thin centre section.

    Measures between 50-100yd, or different sized objects make the process a whole lot bloody harder, but I've attempted to explain the basics. All I do know is that an average sized Rabbit, on 7xmag, from the top of the head downwards should fit nearly inside the centre cross @ 30yds

    Aiming points are very awkward with a 30/30, with you having only a couple of aim points on the reticule, so you'll probably just have to use eye & experience to just over/underaim.

    There's a turret laben generator on Chairgun, but I don't know how to use it.

    Cheers...
