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.

    a hypothetical question here. again about legality and if they ever exsisted.

    firstly. Would a double or multi barrel airgun. that fired more than one projectile at the same time from seperate barrels be legal in the UK?

    if the answer is yes. is the ftlb limit per projectile or them all added together?

    not planning on making one and ive never seen one....but just wondered about it..

    let me know of any of histories blunders regarding this topic if there are any

    thanks in advance

    I am sure it has been done before, how successfully I could not say. A quick google
    search turned up a Daisy model 104 as one bob firing example.

    On the question of power, not sure but I am sure there has been previous discussion of a similar nature but about an air shotgun and would the power count for each shot individually or all together, try the search bar?

    looks interesting but i would have thourt that it would be more accurate as over/under rather than side by side

    I would be suprised if both barrels fired together ? ( It has 2 triggers )
    I have one here ( Both are sold awaiting collection )

    Its a Handmade PCP by Robin Chainey, He only made around 25 airguns & Pistols & No longer makes them, We are still in touch,
    The 2 barrel ( Wildcat ) Has .177 & .22 barrels rotating, This would seem a far better option , Only the trajectory would change,

    The 2 barreled gun is no 3 of 3, The 2 barreled guns are pretty rare !

    IIRC Rob Chainey used to trade under the name of BAR...?

    Love the quirkyness of the German example; although wouldn't fancy getting my fingers trapped between the blades and inside of the guard when closing the action!

    Legally speaking I suspect legal energy limit would be defined in relation to pulls of the trigger - a rifle firing two barrels simultaneously from one trigger pull would have to be sub-12 for both barrels total (so sub-6 each brl) however a rifle like the one above with two triggers (that you could pull at the same time) would probably be alright being sub-12 for each barrel since each is discharged with a separate trigger pull..
