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.

    Just wondering if most gun shops allow customers to test the power of their rifles? I really need to test the power of my s200 as I am now using a lighter pellet (falcons) so I need to test the power? I am trying to find close gun shops as I obviously don't have a chronoscope or combro to use :(

    BTW I ACCIDENTALLY POSTED THIS IN THE HUNTING SECTION SO JUST IGNORE!

    Cheers

    Why not buy a Combro, they are not that expensive, usually less than the cost of a night out!

    Hi mate, I'm pretty sure that most (if not all) gun shops will test your gun for you for a small fee.
    The problem is that in the event your gun is overpowered then they won't return it to you...until its made legal!
    For that of course they'll charge you. Best option is to buy your own chrono device, a one-off purchase which will last you for ages (so long as you're careful with it!).

    usually your power will be lower but get it checked,

    Buy a combro! it's the cost of a couple of fills at a petrol station....

    If I had 10.8 ftlbs with accupells which are 14.3 grain and falcons are around 13.43 do you think it will drop to about 10.5? I know you can't really guess hahah

    Head size also affects it so hard to give an estimation.

    If the pellets lighter the muzzle velocity may be higher therefore counteract that so the energy may stay about the same but it also depends on factors like pellet fit.

    Yeh I think you have to do whilst in perfect conditions without any other noise, although I have heard quite a few good reviews...

    Only one chrono matters and thats the one the plod will use. Anything else is just guidance. But for the sake of £50 buy a combro.
