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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    I must admit I always liked the idea of a crossbow, but all the winding and wire under pressure makes all my self-preservation alarm bells ring. :bolt:

    Keep the videos coming though - I think everyone likes to watch them. :):up:

    Wow very impressive. :cool:

    In the first video you say you were firing a 300grain bolt (crossbow bullet you called it) so I was wondering do you know what sort of velocity it is doing in FPS?
    Just interested in working out what sort of ft/lbs it's making. ;)

    LOL,many thank's guy's yes it doe's send shiver's up my spine loading that brute,lol but boy it is just awesome to shoot.Them crossbow bullet's at 300 grn were doing 455 fps on the first prototype bow in that video and since then they are now doing 550 fps with the same weight bullet bolt a 400 grn will do 450 fps so in that first vid we had 300 grn doing 455 fps =205 ft lbs and now it is 550 fps with a 400 grn =222 ft lb's.In the second video the were 950 grns doing 370 fps =288 ft lbs.Will do some with an FAC HW 80 doing 30 ft lb's at my friend's house with is monster power rifle very soon and post them on here for you all,glad you enjoyed them sldo when loading a bolt or arrow i alway's take precaution's to ensure that it is very safe i love my finger's how they are and need them for my work so the trigger mech has to be the very best and 100/5 reliable holding back over 350 lb's of full draw weight and on a dryfire the bowstring goe's supersonic too witha very loud crack just like a high velocity rifle doe's insanity i know but the fun is in spade's,lol:p.

    Crazy i know but oh what fun i had shooting that thing.:D

    I know it is very scary,lol,but what an adrenalin rush it is to shoot.

    Do not worry the string claw is made from the very highest grade of stainless steel so it will never go off unless the auto safety is put on shoot and the trigger is pulled i engineered the trigger to be very crisp and predictable and above all safe.Will do a video of my friend's HW80 FAC shooting over 25 ft lb's very soon when i can on here for you guy's that love real high power air rifle's.

    I saw this reply to a comment on the Video, could you expand on this please? as I was under the impression that bow hunting in any form was illegal in the UK. :confused:

    Very interesting device! :up:

    Always amazes me that tiny air gun pellets are restricted to 12ft lb and always just managing to fly under the licensing radar in this country yet these things have no such restrictions.
