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.

    Everyone who shoots FT does this,including me,my click chart is in 3 yard increments out to 66 yard for my main FT setup,rest of the guns are 5 yard increments out to 60 :)

    It's accurate to more than within 1/8th of an inch at 100 yard or 1/16th at 50 yard if your scope and measurements are set out perfectly.

    You will need a decent quality scope as many cheaper scopes don't always adjust accurately enough and after a number of shots you can start to lose zero.
    You will probably want to centre your scope as most cheaper scopes adjust more accurately if centred. If you have the faculty to do this.
    http://www.hawkeoptics.com/user/chairgun/help/scopeshims.htm
    Apart from that always finish by turning the adjuster in the same direction so go past the point you want to be at and turn back, and go and do some testing with a pen and paper.
    Good luck.

    What do you plan on using dialing in for? 16 mag is a little low for FT,you can't dial in for HFT and it may be unsuitable for hunting although I haven't tried?

    Matty have you got a pic of your click chart so i got an idea please .and i guess you still need to know the exact distance of the target so will still need to use a rangefinder if your no good at judging

    I don't have one to hand and i'm in the middle of creating a new one but basically I had 2 columns, one was yards and the other clicks, the yards went from 7 yards to 66 yards in 3 yard increments and the clicks were in whole numbers and 1 number was 1 click,a negative number was a click backwards,my zero was highlighted in yellow so that if I ever made a mistake,all I had to do was zero in at that range and I was back on track again.

    This video should help you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFAuaGI_l-c
    .
    Yes range finding is crucial and the distances need to be accurate which is why to range find accurately using parallax people use high mags like 50 - 65x,usually being able to range find right down to a few feet with good optics and large sidewheel

    Range finders have a plus or minus accuracy figure of upto a yard. Use a tape to measure out, it will serve you better. Chairgun will give you a click chart with ease just accurately zero your rifle and plug in the the data and you are away.

    Hi Terry,
    I use a nikon prostaff efr 3-9x40 for hunting and use the click up/down method. Works very well. I carry a small card with the settings from 10 metres to 50 metres as I have not memorised all of the click settings yet. My zero is 32 metres and I use the magnification on 9.
    Cheers,
    Paul

    P.S. I have a small dot of tippex on the zero dial as my eyes cannot focus that close these days. I only then have to count up/down without having to look too hard.
