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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Hi all heres a video of testing my gun to find the power drop over x amount of shots. the chrono is connected to my laptop to give me the reading after every shot which also stores it in text file. As far as i know the chrono mk4 on its own doesnt store every shot instead gives you the highest, lowest and average (if im wrong sorry but this is what i found out myself and having no replys from the manufaturers site only phone numbers).
    anyways this was handy for me cus it allowed me to plot a line graph so when im at my local range i know when to expect to fill the gun up again.

    [video=youtube;_aF4S2HE5AQ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aF4S2HE5AQ[/video]

    let me know what you think good or crap post it.

    hope it helps anyone wanting to know.

    cheers

    pellets

    haha what pellets ? :)

    seriously though if you didnt see it in the video i was using webley mosquito .177

    well to be honest the cable that is made like the one they sell isnt much dearer. it cost me around £6-£8 to make inc the box. i made mine cus i couldnt buy one and i wanted one qiuck.

    this cable will only allow you to conect to an rs232 port on the pc (this method did work for me). if you dont have one its an adapter you will need. my laptop had no rs232 port. i used an adapter i borrowed, it was a belkin. the guy said was around £20.00.

    although i have seen cheap adapters. whilst i was looking it up i found some people on the net had problems using basic adapters, true or not i cannot vouch.

    curious

    I must admit I know little or nothing about P.C.P.s but one thing that strikes me about the video is the time delay between the rifle firing and the pellet hitting the target.The target appears to be about 2 feet away from the muzzle but there is a very clear gap between the report of the rifle and the pellet striking the target box.I would have thought that at those pellet velocities the sounds would have been impossible to distinguish from one another.Forgive my lack of knowledge but I am only a spring man.

    Well i cant tell any difference, the ting you here is the pellet hitting the target, the doooh sound you here i think is the software making a sound. :D
    I cant even tell the rifle has fired i just here the ting of the pellet striking the target.

    The chrono is a great bit of kit to invest in. £40.00 delivered. It helps you know your gun and stay the right side of the law.

    At last I've brought a Chorograph cb-625 mk4. It dose make a big difference to know that some shots are down on power. My power levels were jumping all over the place.
    I've striped her down and I think I've found the cause.

    I would like to know where to get the lead from. any ideas..




    I've found the answer to my own question sorry.
