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.

Good news Equaling A Club Record.

    I had a brilliant night last night. I shot a club record equaling 99 for my last target in our annual PCP competition. This leaves my nearest rival to score 93 to win, Unfortunately he regularly scores 94+.
    Just to clarify, if these scores do not sound too impressive we score out (so if the outer line is broken the lower score counts) and the bull is about the size of a .22 pellet
    This is a 25 yard bench rest competition over the year. I used my Daystate Regal .177 with
    JSB Exact 8.44g 4.53 and a Hawke Frontier 4X20X44. I have been using this rifle for about 3 years with a previous best of 97. The other chap with 99 shot his with a Weihrauch 100 .177 about 2 years ago
    I am especially happy as I have been thinking about "upgrading" my rifle to a newer model as lately several very expensive bits of kit have turned up at the club, so I would need an upgrade to compete. This score has confirmed my thinking that would a new mega expensive rifle improve my shooting enough to justify me spending £1500+, obviously not.
    I think it was one of those times when the stars align and when you put your fingers in the pellet tin you pull out a perfect matching pellet. Possibly one of those infinite monkey scenarios where if you shoot enough targets you get a good one eventually.
    What ever, it made me very happy!!!! I am going to put it down to expert marksmanship.

    Sounds like a great night shooting with the regal and it's certainly holding its own. As you had one of them nights that go your way your rival may have one of them nights where it isn't there night :eek::cool:

    Excellent shooting, you could spend 1500 plus on a gun, it could turn out to be bloody awful.
    Keep with what you have. Second place is still awesome.

    I once read....

    “beware the man who only has one gun, he probably knows how to use it!”

    if your humble rifle is kicking ass then keep it and, keep kicking. I have won one of my (powder burning) clubs airgun competition the last 5years with the same HW100 in .22. There have been some quite exotic bits of kit turn up the last few years, but I knew (now sold it to a fellow club mate) that rifle inside out, and I don’t buckle under competition pressure.

    Oh and well done on a good nights shooting. :thumb:

    I have no plan to sell, this just confirmed my theory that you should shoot on gun and get to know it. I appreciate that there are some rifles that will never be good enough but I always knew that mine was. I think what has helped me is to always think about your shooting,. try to correct faults and try new techniques.

    Your current rifle seems to be working a treat.

    As others have said spending big money doesn't not guarantee a great rifle. Just have a look at the daystate thread that's currently running to confirm that.

    Cheers Mark it was a nice surprise, the stars and planets aligned!!! I have no intention of selling the Regal. I only hope we can get the FX's to a similar accuracy at 75 yards with the slugs. No doubt we will enjoy trying.
    What is funny is that Sam and Shawn were inspired to have a go at equaling it, they were shooting 94,s 95,s and 96,s and more or less throwing the targets on the floor in disgust. 1 hour earlier they would have been more than happy to have any of those scores, as would I. Back to reality on Friday.
    I was going to get the Trophy's engraved this week but now the PCP comp is too close to call. OOOOH the tension.
