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.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. 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.

    Ok, on one of the threads someone (I think a1) recommended I get a pack of various pellets from www.pellpax.co.uk whic I have now received. I am not 100% sure how to go about doing the comparison. I think I would mark out approx 15 meters and then try the various brands. Does this seem right ? How would you go about it ? Each brand is supplied in packs of 10. I intend putting them through my ratcatcher.

    best to do it around 20-30 yds.

    no wories in getting a zero.

    aim at one point for each pellet and shoot them at the hole.

    you're not looking for the ones that are close to the spot just the ones that hit in the same place and not in random spots.

    the ones with the smallest hole is the type you need.

    then zero those in and but a load of them:up:
    takes ages:(

    I like the idea of the phone book, and apologies for not realising it was you who suggested pellpax, :up:
    I got lots of time and really interested in seeing the differences for myself, maybe a photo record may be in order for those interested in the results.

    i allways use those sample packs when i get a new gun the other advantage of using the phone book is that it catches the pellets and you can pull the pellet out and see how it's expanded or compressed on impact any sort of normal backstop would destroy the pellets

    Not sure what you mean there, mail ordering guns is illegal. :confused: unless you mean paying online, then going to collect?

    Strange, I thought you had to "go to the shop", that's good news then.

    Wait a minute though, guns are sent through courier, so that doesn't work. The only way they could be mail ordered would be if the shopkeepers drove to your house, I doubt they do that :confused:
