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.

    This afternoon I zeroed my Eliminator, which runs at 21.2fpe. Zero range is 45 yards with Bisley Magnums (21gr in .22). Considering she's a rammer, I didn't think that the below group was too bad:

    Four rounds, 45 yards, unsupported:

    Good shooting for freehand!
    Theoben Eliminator? I had one of these donkeys years ago, was amazed with the first outing, bouncing a tin can end over end for quite some distance for an airgun.
    The damn thing bust the xhairs in my ASI scope though!

    No, that's the edge of a previous group. The scope hadn't been zeroed, so there were pellets scattered all over the cardboard while i got the scope set up, and then I drew those dots on it and shot some groups. This group was the last one I shot.

    What scope are you using on the Eliminator JK ?

    I would be very impressed with that 5 shot 1 hole group, had I shot it, so you must be well chuffed.

    Makes me wish I still had my Theoben classic, I could get 5p size groups at 30yds with it.

    It's an old 4 x 40 Simmons WTC. I tried to sell it and nobody wanted it; I tried in on my 12fpe air rifles and it didn't like the short ranges; I had it on my .22lr and it didn't have a wide enough field of view. I tried it on the Eliminator and it works really well, so I may as well leave it on there.

    My thoughts exactly. I reckon it will be okay though - they're pretty tough.

    Nice work :D

    It's almost proof that there is a . and he hates me.. I shoot a fine 55yd group with a reasonably pricey PCP and 24x target 'scope.. you then proceed to p*ss all over it with an archaic, ill-mannered, recoiling monster and fixed PX 4 mag 'scope. I doff my cap to you, sir :p

    In other news, did the pump turn up OK?

    To be fair, conditions were pretty much ideal, and the rifle is designed to chuck a heavy pellet a long way. It's also very partial to the pellets I was using, and the rifle is good and heavy, so it's pretty stable. I don't think I'd have had anything like that accuracy if I'd got her shooting at the full 30fpe, if I'm honest.

    Yes, it did - thought I'd sent you a PM to say thanks - but obviously not! Thanks for the pump, Mike!

    Cheers,

    JR

    Cool - still bloody good going for an FAC rammer though. As you say the fact that it's not running at full chat probably helps calm it down a fair bit.

    No problem re. the pump - glad it got there OK and I hope it's not too far gone for you to make use of it :)
